Today, I went to play pool with a couple of friends. I'm not very good at this game. My friend beat me fair and square. Twice. He's blind. FML

The Force is strong in that one. You, on the other hand, seem to have a low midi-chlorian count, so you might want to pay a visit to your nearest Jedi.

“Not very good at the game” is a massive understatement — you stink to high heaven! How does your friend know which ball to hit and where to aim it? Does he play by sense of smell? This ain’t Pinball Wizard!

Look, the reality of the matter is: there is no way a blind guy can finish his side of a game of pool in any finite amount of time. But OP probably just sank white and black in one shot, twice.

They can with a little guidance.

Ya it's damn amazing what you can do with your other senses when one is lost I've seen baseball games to fantastic works of art all by the blind 😎

He just needs to feel the table and the position of the balls. He can be quite efficient!

... Explain. Have you ever held a pool ball? if so, can you FEEL the stripes?!?! Or FEEL color?

I think your friend might be Richard Turner.

How would he know Stripes from Solids? Or did you play by different rules?
