I’ve done duckpin bowling. It’s fun. But I would never set my foot in a filthy candlepin bowling alley.
The bowling balls in candlepin are much smaller, so I assume they included that detail so everyone would understand just how batsh-- insane the fight was. “No seriously guys, bowling balls, like REAL bowling balls, not those little ones”
I was looking through a 1950’s city directory and there were duckpin alleys all over the place because they could squeeze into just about any storefront. I’ve only played once and it was kind of fun, but I have this nostalgia thing for the huge infrastructure needed for regular 10 pin bowling (ball return, forced air hand dryers, pin setters, etc). But we only have one of those intown these days
My favorite version of the game is “Pin-ing”, that’s where you throw the pins at the balls.
It’s that time of the year again — time to celebrate the expansion of scientific frontiers by such means as… licking rocks and reanimating dead spiders‽
I’d heard of the spider thing before and I never need to see that video again. Ever. Thank you.
Never say I didn’t warn you up front.
This year’s were a bit disappointing compared to other years, to be honest. Overall, not as fun to me.
Some years are sillier than others, true.
New hybrid has dropped…
But what kind of mileage does it get?
How do you lose a whole plane?
My favorite part of that article:
“Whoa, can’t go digging around in there. This here map says that’s their land, and we may be ruthless international weapon smugglers, but we respect property boundaries!”
