Simple poll.
I find that bowlers in particular often have incredibly irritating mustaches and tend to wear jeans that taper at the ankles w/ white sneakers. Gross.

On the other hand, people who hang out in pool halls are often unsavory in a variety of other ways. What do you think?

That's a tough call. When I was a kid, I hung out in a sleazy pool hall and watched my brother hustle. Later, I enjoyed smoking and drinking while shooting pool at the strip club were we went for breakfast when I was working nights at Intel. It's not as fun since I quit smoking, but I still enjoy beer and pool every so often.

Bowling never interested me (but I don't totally suck either). I would say while both have large numbers of dirtbags, bowling is usually limited to places to play. Where pool is often played in a bar/strip club where there are plenty of other things to do.

Bowling wins because of the secluded locale. You are going there to either bowl, or hang with fellow dirtbags.

I had an uncle that was in the Guinness Book for highest 3 game score of 897. This was a looong time ago, his name was Allie Brandt and owned the bowling alley in Lockport, NY. It would take me approximately 21 games to get a score of 897 because I suck. I play a decent game of pool and practically lived in a pool hall when I was around 19 or20.

With billiards you can watch women bend over tables to make shots, providing spectators a (sometimes) excellent view.

Bowling...not so much.
Either way, you get to watch chicks fondle balls at some point.

I beg to differ. I once saw a pretty hot girl bowling in a low cut top and when she released the ball, her boobs popped out like 90%. Plus the jiggle as they walk up to the foul line is nice to watch.

Also, short skirts and bowling is another good combo

I sell more crack at the pool hall then I do at the bowling alley. The bowling alley is a good place to get rid of stolen tools however. I gotta go with billiards though, those people are effed up....

You take up more space bowling, and are likely at least as sleazy as a pool player. So in the grand scheme of things, a bowler's sleazification of a given space is going to be higher than a pool player's.
