...what do all of you do for a living/profession? I am an estimator for a large industrial painting company and finishing my last course at college. Just trying to get a scope of where people come from when they come through the pool hall doors.

Rich once told me he did scientific experiments on aliens and then explained that he'd have to have me "extinguished" /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif I told him that I'd tell his wife on him so he apologized and arranged for me to have a pod under my bed.

Kato~~~thinks that Rich and Wendy have "arranged" for that unmarked, gun-metal gray van up the street to "keep an eye on me".........Big Brother is watching me.........I think.

I'm an engineer with a major tv network.I play strictly for enjoyment and never to make money.Over the years I've spoken to a lot of nonpool players who seem to have some preconceived ideas about pool rooms and pool players.
In spite of this the majority of people that I've met, have a college education.

Rick Case, ceo of aol said the entire stock market is one big con job, then are not stock brokers, nothing but cons?
A con is one big step up from a pool hustler, it takes real brains to run a con, any fool can hustle pool.
Of course you can work on wall street &amp; delivery mail, or dump waiste baskets also.
