First big pay day, what do you buy? Your own pool cue, of course. What do you do with that pool cue? Put it in the closet til you die and it gets auctioned off for three cents on the dollar.
Hollywood has us think Pool cues are flimsy little buggers that break easily. Not the case in real life, sadly, as my brother and I can attest. We had entire sword fights with those things, and we weren’t going for the soft strike either. I think my brother still has a bit of a lump on the head from the tip of the cue from one such fight all those years ago…
Pool cue to the head is brutal, but maybe even worse is the pool cue to the finger when you’re pool cue sword fighting (why that’s not an Olympic sport, I don’t know).
And yes, those suckers are really hard to break (the pool cues, not the fingers).
Yeah, me and my bro knew that. Whe had this rule where we weren’t allowed to hit below a certain point on the cue.
Now, sliding your cue towards the other’s fingers was a whooooole other story. Mercifully, neither of us had to go to hospital with broken fingers, though we’ve bruised each other’s fingers a fair amount…
