I once knew a man with one arm... Nice guy, used to hang out at the pub where I worked. He, no lie, beat everyone that challenged him to a game of pool. - We're talking wiped the table with them-. Not only did he do this minus an arm but he would use any old pool stick available... Not the fancy ones like most sharks sport. One day I asked him why he didn't have a macked out cue seeing as he was so passionate about the game. He replied "If you're really good, a tree branch will do.
I think that applies to everything in life.
Just a random thought that crossed my mind today. :)
