VivianaVivianaIf he is into pool, you will not find a cue he will use for under $ 100 bucks.. A lot of accessories that pelpoe have mentioned are good ideas, but if he has his own table at home, there is a good chance he has a lot of them. My roommates own a pool table, and they hardly play, but they own a tip shaper and shaft smoother. I have seen a cue holder that attaches to a bar table that can hold like 5 sticks.. They can be convenient during league play. The best gift I would recommend would be a pool ball set. You can get a pretty cool one for around $ 100 bucks, and it would be something that he would use and love.
AuthAuthI wouldn't remncmeod a cue just because I think he might want to have some input on it. There are plenty of accessories to supply him with though. A cue case is definitely worth a purchase, but if he has his own cue, he probably already has one. Then there's chalk holders, tip tools (I like the Cue Cube, Ultimate Tip Tool, or Willard Shaper), and cue holders so he can prop up his cue when he's playing (the QClaw is good). You can find most of these at any retailer. There are various shaft maintenance products. Since he has his own table though, maybe get some table maintenance supplies like Quick Clean.

ChandraChandraI absolutely adore rniadeg your blog posts, the variety of writing is smashing.This blog as usual was educational, I have had to bookmark your site and subscribe to your feed in ifeed. Your theme looks lovely.

AuthAuthThere are definitely a nmebur of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice level to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where an important factor will likely be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round things like that, however I'm certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Each girls and boys really feel the impact of just a momentis pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

LoukasLoukasHave you ever considered about addnig a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, pop ! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Amazing blog!

ChadChadWith havin so much content and arcitles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

GlendaGlendaI was curious if you ever coreidsned changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

ChandanChandanHey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your aticrle seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

MarianaMarianaHave you ever thought about wrntiig an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

Guesses:    23

Scoring Explanation:

A pool entry/guess entails up to 9 components. The pool administrator chooses which components to include (in dark text below). An exact match results in a zero (0)—a perfect score—for that component. The overall score is the total points of all the active components.

Points are determined as follows:

Birth Date
1 point for each day of the week before or after actual (for instance, off by two weeks means 14 points).

Birth Time
A value ranging roughly between 0 – 3 points for time of day (approximately 0.12 points per hour difference. For instance, plus or minus 4 hours is approximately a half point; birth date is not part of the calculation, so clock time is relative and not calculated across the midnight boundary).

1 point if guess is wrong.

1 point for every inch (or 0.3937 points per cm) greater or less than actual (technically, if the actual is 20 inches and the guess is of 19.999, then 1/1000 of a point is added, for example).

1 point for every lb (or 2.2 points per kg) greater or less than actual (technically, if the actual is 7 lbs and the guess is of 7.001, then 1/1000 of a point is added, for example).

1 point if guess is wrong.

1 point if guess is wrong.

First Name & Middle Name
On average, one will gain 2 to 4 points for an incorrect guess.

The characters of a name are analyzed for similarity. Character parity, order, and count determine how close the guess is to the actual; phonetic distance is also taken into account. For example, if the actual name is "Bart", then:

"Barry" scores better than "Bartholomew" (count: Bart [4], Barry [5], Bartholomew [11]).
"Brad" scores better than "Jill" (parity: Brad contains the 'a' & 'r', but Jill contains neither).
"Marli" scores better than "Keira" (order: both contain the 'a' & 'r' of Bart, but in Keira it occurs in the wrong order).

If the actual name is "Stu", then:
"Stew" scores better than "Stan" (phonetic: pronunciation usage of 'u' more closely related to 'ew' than 'an').

Case matters ('A' is not equal to 'a')!

There's also significant penalty points for a guess that looks like a non-guess: "?" or "???", for instance.

Note: When the administrator of the baby pool enters the Actual Results, some, but not all components may be filled in. Actual Results components of numeric type which are left blank will default to zero (0). Blank multiple choice components will display blank and 1 point is applied equally to all participants for that component. If the Actual Results are removed and re-entered (for the sake of corrections/additions), scores will be recalculated. If a pool component is deselected by the pool administrator, any data entered while it was active will be ignored by the total score calculation.
