A pool table set into the floor, sunk a few inches down. To shoot, lie down; you will find that you have a much steadier aim. The best part is a flying pool ball can now do no worse than a bruise ankle, as opposed to being hit in the face, which almost happened to me recently.

       Might ruin your going out clothes in a bar setting, what with spilled beer and vomit. Besides, I'm to old to be getting up and down to play pool on the floor. However- a nice laser scope on my cue stick and mirrored balls would improve my aim quite bit. Would have to have a clear cue ball that refracted the laser to show the angle of where it was going to go.
Well, that's a completely different idea than what you had in mind, isn't it? Sorry, my mind was just trying to work out a way to keep these knees and back from creaking.

       alternatively - magnetise everything and stick it up on the ceiling

       I don't think that your aim will be any steadier lying down, especially if you have to bridge over a ball.

       What can I say? I got friends in low places,where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away.

       I was actually hit by an eight-ball once. It hit me right between the eyes, smashing my glasses and driving shards of plastic through my skin, blood everywhere. It even left a little scar.
