Hook Juice / That Purple Stuff
on: January 09, 2018, 07:46:38 PM
Been bored at work these first few days of 2018:
www.HookJuice.com

www.ThatPurpleStuff.com


Just a little fun poke at each....
Maybe Ron will buy the URLs from me now, what a terrible CEO not even owning these URLs... 8)

Hack, you really seem to spend a disproportionate amount of time/energy/posts on USBC for not being a member.  Is this all just motivated by your love for the sport and drive to see it back to its glory days or by the hate in your heart?

We only have so many days/hours/minutes on this Earth and you seem to like spending them talking about USBC.

I'm curious about your psychology.....

Certainly I have my issues with the USBC that I don't like, as I think every poster here does as well, but I do enjoy Nationals/State tournaments and league bonding (I feel I get $21 of value for those things).  I commend you for walking the walk and not paying dues to an organization you hate and speaking with your wallet but I'm simply seeking to understand the end-game here for you and what exactly you get out of all this.  Is it just to hate on the USBC?

Honestly its more bored at work.  But yeah not going to deny they have done some good in past but today's iteration seems more like a jobs program for getting paid more than your education is worth and in a general an old boy's club.  In the end who cares (but me) what I think lol.  Had my say now I'm chill.  Think will avoid slagging them off going forward as you say only so much time and energy to use in one life lol.

Fair enough.

>Things that are not on the list are neither approved or not approved, their legality either way just hasn't been determined.

That is not correct. 

Yes, that is correct.
If something is not on the Approved, Non-Approved Products list. It hasn't been tested so it status has not been determined.

And as I said in that case you err on the side caution and treat it as not approved until you find out otherwise. which is the same as what you posted here:
If a product is not found on the list below, consider it to be NOT APPROVED either before, after, or during certified competition.

Instead of those links to old threads here's places you should be looking for updated info.

Don't even care at this point.  Was just planning on using my diluted only with water SG at home regardless, as good luck proving not using full strength and morally completely in the the spirit of the sport (less likely to leave a film than full strength which is legal at any time so even more in spirit imo).  Just though it was silly but the whole talk of banning balls that were formerly legal when they are 10 years too late doing their job and only do so after I build my arsenal.  Well that is a deal breaker.  But neither here nor there.
