Well there’s bowling porn, then there’s bowling porn.

I will never understand the appeal of bowling.

You knock stuff down. It makes a lot of noise. You get to consume alcohol.

:ok_hand:


#6

You do all that and you don’t get arrested


#7

I like all of those things, but oddly not in this combination. Of course I’m just bitter because I’m absolutely terrible at it, with or without the alcohol.


#8

See? Sounds pretty amazing.


#9

And sing as loudly as you please all the while, and no one complains because it’s so noisy in there they can’t hear you. or maybe they are also singing

Pool covers all that, plus there’s a complex defensive game and tactics once you have the skill to drop the balls and control where the cue ball goes. Bowling is one dimensional. Advanced pool is more like chess trying to see many moves ahead. In fact a one-time teammate of mine had been a teen chessmaster.

In an alternative universe, where this kind of thing is innocuous, friendly, and blithely acceptable in social circles I am humping your leg in appreciation for this reply.

Bowling is two dimensional, plus time. Three dimensional if you throw the ball really hard. :wink:

If this doesn’t win you over, nothing will:


#14

OMG! There are so many to choose from…


#15

Bucking for the coveted Pedant Pedant award, eh?


#16

You type that like it’s a bad thing! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#17

Like bowling, it’s a matter of personal taste.

:grinning: [HIGH FIVES]

I will never understand the appeal of; tennis, golf, basketball, football (european or american), or around the world balloon races. But now you have given me the courage to post negative comments about them all!!!

On a positive note bowling is awesome. There is a quiet contemplation of aiming a head crushing orb amidst drunken rowdy friends and a constant sound of rolling balls and crashing pins with the occasional yell of victory or defeat; it is a weird burst of adrenaline induced meditation in chaos.

These are… photographs? I thought it was part of that video with the eagle flapping through the disco balls.
