I met the 23rd ranked pool player in Scotland, and his name was Douglas.

Okay, so these are some pictures from Edinburgh! The tall building is a monument of some kind; I'm embarrassed to say I don't know of what. But it was so pretty I wanted a lot of pictures of it! The picture with Miranda standing between two guards is a picture for Dad- it reminds me of Fellowship, on the River. If you don't know what scene I'm talking about, you're obviously not a LOTR fan. This was right outside Edinburgh Castle. The scene from the cannon is from inside Edinburgh Castle, this huge place. Scotland's Honours (the Royal Crown, Sceptre, etc) were hidden here, and it's been occupied for a verrryyy long time, like cavemen & druids, etc. Except no Druids, but Vikings. This last picture was outside the Writer's Museum- dedicated to Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott. There were about 25 squares in the sidewalks with famous quotations by Scottish people. This one was my favorite.

The claim about the Douglas, I cannot verify 100%. We met him outside a fish & chips place at night, and began talking. He was about 65 years old and spends 850 quid on on pool cue. But if someone were to lie about their ranking, I doubt they would choose that number, and for that reason, I believe Douglas.
