Sophie's Choice and Sophie's World are two different things.

Did you two just fall out of your mums' cunts yesterday or something?

Same mum, different cunts. I fell out of my one a few weeks back, can't speak for Gabriel.

A break of 147 in snooker means getting 147 points in any single turn, rather than starting with the very first shot of the frame.

It's only possible at the start of the frame, surely?

I just watched Hendry vs O'Sullivan in 1997 on the YouTubes because my partner remembered watching it on the telly. It's listed as one of Hendry's 5 career 147 breaks, but I thought the video I found was the wrong one initially because both players made some shots before any potting happened. It's only possible to make 147 if no balls have already been potted, but apparently as well as meaning to take the first shot of a frame (which is what I've always taken it to mean), a "break" is just any run of scoring in a frame.

You can make more than 147 if the other player fucks up before you have your go. (Disclaimer, not a snooker expert.)

First shot of frame --> the break off
Unbroken sequence of scoring shots by one player --> a break

They do sound similar. My guess is it is called 'a break' because it is finished when you break the sequence and allow the other player go.

In my experience in pub games, people talk about who the person taking the "break" will be, and meaning to disrupt the triangle of balls. It's probably related to playing more pub pool than competition snooker.

When you rub the back of a bit of sellotape or masking tape to secure it to a surface, that's called burnishing.

Naturally some 'bits' of sellotape will be just the backs by themselves.  You can't burnish a back that is by itself - fact.

Very true. In pool the thing synonymous with a sequence of shots taken by one player is called a 'visit'. The break shot is the first shot of your first visit.

And usually the last, unless you're at county level in which case somehow they always seem to get something down.

Why do they need a word for that.

phantom_power

I always referred to it as a "go" or "turn"

olliebean

I've always called it a "spigot." But maybe that's just me.

The Peter Jackson Beatles documentary makes 020220u5 why so many of their lyrics make next to no sense.

"We need a name that's a bit like oh-oh. Yoko. No. Ono. Oh, no. Jo Jo. That's the one!"

"We need some lyrics that have sort of an eh-ah sound. Hijack? Nah, bit violent. Bareback? No, filthy. Get back? Oh yes, lads, now we're cooking."

Fascinating to see that the writing process was more aimed at creating tone poems than whimsy, but also nonsense.

olliebean

There's a video around somewhere of Peter Gabriel at work (I think it was in a BBC4 documentary or something) where his songs are mostly nonsense sounds and phrases in the early stages. I think I've seen Phil Collins doing similar in footage of Genesis working up a new song. And Mike Oldfield went the whole hog and just left the nonsense syllables in the finished songs. (As did the Beatles with goo goo g'joob, of course.)
