Using larger bold-face font, especially on selected words, is billiard player shorthand for:

"You are a fooking idiot and incapable of comprehending the written word, so to help your lame ass out I'm going to emphasize those words which I know you're too stupid to catch if I don't and that you would otherwise miss."

If everyone has noticed, the reg member that has NOT replied to this thread is the person who personifies the use of ALL of the above.

Dare I insert his initials in the thread, oh, what the hell, [SJD]!

Thank you PJ..I explained what you pointed out, in great detail (more than once) Petie must have been ASLEEP !..
I think Lou Figueroa described it PERFECTLY, in his post # 11...Certainly at least as it pertains to ILLITERATE 'dwarf' billiard players, whose initials are (oh, what the hell) 3-IQ ) ....Thanks Lou !

oh, I think that in the case of our local billiardista we're talking not about gay v straight... more like just a little innocent cross-dressing. I mean -- how is he going to resist the heels?

I don't hold it against him whatsoever. In fact, recently I heard an interview with fashionista Tim Gunn and he reminisced about when, as a child, he was taken to visit J. Edgar Hoover's office, the fabled Director of the FBI:

"TIM GUNN: Yes. My father was a career FBI agent, 26 years. And he was - well, he was an agent but he ended up being J. Edgar Hoover's ghostwriter, speechwriter - took care of all the correspondents and his office was two doors down from Mr. Hoover's office.

And growing up, my sister and I loved the FBI tour. And this one particular year, I was nine or 10 and my sister was therefore six or seven. And my father said, you kids are going to be so excited - Vivian Vance is in Mr. Hoover's office. And I was a huge "I Love Lucy" fan. Would you like to meet her? Well, yes, of course. So we did and it was lovely and she was charming.

Years later, my father's in a nursing home with Alzheimer's disease - he's not at the Thanksgiving table where family has gathered. And all these rumors are out about Hoover being a cross-dresser.

PETER SAGAL: Yes.

GUNN: So I was reflecting upon that time in his office with Vivian Vance.

And I turned to my sister and I said, upon reflection, I know it was years and years ago - doesn't it strike you as odd that Hoover wasn't in the office?

MO ROCCA: Wow. My question is.. How was J. Edgar Hoover as Vivian Van dressed - which is really what matters?

GUNN: A stunning house dress.

KLEIN: If that's the look he wanted, he got a good one.

GUNN: But I have to tell you this too, I wrote about this in one of my books - "Gunn's Golden Rules." It was published by a division of Simon & Schuster. The Simon & Schuster legal team went to task on that book. They spent two weeks with it and they contacted Vivian Vance's two biographers - neither of whom knew anything about this visit to the FBI, and then they went to the FBI to look at their visitor logs - no Vivian Vance."

So don't feel bad, William :-) Just enjoy those Jimmy Choo's.

Why do we even need a way to say this? I thought it's the default assumption on the internet.
