Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Talent I Didn't Know I Had

At a recent office party, we held a bowling contest including a round of bowling with mittens on. I somehow managed to win that round (with a score of 101) even despite a less than stellar performance at normal bowling. I'm not sure what I can do with this hitherto untapped skill…

I also found bowling more slowly appeared to help. This can be overdone. At one point, I sent the ball rolling so slowly that it got stuck and a lane maintainer had to fetch it.

I don't know what Walter Sobchak would have to say but it would probably include words that are not in my vocabulary.

you are in the same ballpark as me -- my bowling scores and my golf scores are about the same, meaning neither are that good.

I think when you already suffer from poor eye-hand coordination, putting on mittens is less of a handicap for you than it is for your competitors with better eye-hand coordination.
