Fjuri's Riddle.

 

Thank the Belgians for their use of phenolic resin. Ironically, It improves my english.

 

What's the game I enjoy playing?

 

(probably easy this one.) :D

 

Equivocating? 


Phenolic Resin - I recall something similar used in the mines. But it got a more specific name.

Mark: Equivocating?

 

Lol. That's not the answer but you are quite correct about the use of equivocation, which means you're half way to solving it, as it may well give the game away. I guess Fjuri isn't around, I am supposing that the game I refer to isn't all that popular, or at least I would guess that the majority of people wouldn't know the answer but I thought Fjuri might know because of the Belgian connection. 

 

Here is a picture as another clue, it is a picture of something I own (for the game)

This riddle wasn't really a proper riddle Fjuri, I mean - I am not attempting to test you I just thought you might know the answer as you are from the land of the balrogs. The game is billiards. (snooker or pool.)

 

I bought a small pool table (5 foot, baba sized) :D and they say Aramith balls are the best quality so I bought some, they're kind of famous as being made well by the Belgian balrog society. ;)

 

"English" is the spin you put on the cue ball.

If you look at the fellow playing pool in this video, he is applying english to the cue ball. You can tell because when he strikes the cue ball, for some of the shots he hits when he hits the ball he is aiming at, the cueball then goes back towards him. In snooker/pool terms, that's called putting "english" on the white cue ball. So if you hit the ball low, it will come back towards you, and if you hit it high it will follow the ball you are aiming at. Basically english is the spin you put on the ball depending where you strike it. I thought you may have heard of aramith balls since they are a famous belgian ball.

 

:D

 

 

 

land of balrogs = Belgium

belgian balrog society  = Belgian makers of aramith balls.

 

mike the wiz = nutty as a fruitcake.
