      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Bowling a Perfect Game- In 2 Minutes.

Recommended Posts

Dude watches a little Rob and Big I'd say. Third to last set of pins, that last pin took an odd looking fall.

Still, maybe it's easier in 2 minutes? Don't have to think about it and can replicate the throwing motion with less variation?

Cool video.

If I were a betting man I'd say fake the last few frames had a couple of pins fall oddly. There must have been help from the above and I don't mean "THE ONE ABOVE" I mean from a third party located in the back of the lanes above the pin rack. Harmless though none the less.

That dude can roll though no matter what anyone says. There were only two frames there that look like there was a little help possibly.

I can hear "The Dude" calling now from Los Ang-el-ace.

Fake, still cool, but fake. Two frames that the pin was standing and then fell out of nowhere. Pin Monkey up in the wings for sure.

I agree, fake. the reason the camera follows the bowler is to alow the employe with the pin hook to get between the masking units (small gap) without being spotted. There is a cat walk that allows a person to run the length of the house just over the pin decks.

Bowling alley employee's are an odd breed....

man it was fun work though......

Fake, two shots are no where close. Used to work in a lane and yes if you work in a house you have lots of free time to play Bowling games. After hours we would have our own tourneys where we would start at 1 and go through all 24 lanes. Oil conditions change so much from lane to lane that to string strikes was almost impossible. And several of the employees had 300 games to their credit. Of course we also bowled with footballs, rolled balls through chairs and flung balls with towels always trying to come up with a better Trick shot... My specialty was bowling left handed after hours but bowled right handed in leagues. Did I mention that we would invite bar patrons to our after hours bowling!

I agree, two of 'em looked kind of fishy. But overall it's a lot more interesting than the Bigfoot video.

Ok. so 10 out of 12, with the 2 fakes. Still pretty darn good. Oh, and I would be willing to bet he isn't older than 17.

Fake all the way, like said 2 shots for sure were fixed and a third a possibility. After working at 1 for 17 years part time and a 210+ average bowler, I can say I have never tried that trick. Other tricks yes, but not that one. It looks like he used house balls also. There was not much form, a few shots crossed over to the brooklyn side. I think only 3 shots in the pocket.

It didn't look like the lanes were blocked.

To me not that impressive if rigged.

G.C.

There's no way it's real. The pin action on several of the strikes is suspect. Plus that would be nearly impossible for anyone to do, much less a straight shot bowler. I've seen 2 real perfect games and both of them required a lot of skill and a little luck. That shows little skill, and more luck than a leprechaun and horseshoe combined.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
