What happens when a pin slides but does not fall?

1

A pin is only considered fallen when it is knocked down or knocked off the lane surface. In the case you mentioned, where the pin slid but did not fall during your second ball, the pin would be considered left standing, and it would not be a spare. If this had happened during your first ball, the pin needs to be left where it was, and if the pinsetter knocked the pin down afterward, the pin would need to be replaced at its original position.

From the United States Bowling Congress Playing Rules, Rule 6a (Pinfall, Legal Pinfall):

6a. Legal Pinfall
Pins to be credited to a player following a legal delivery shall include:

Pins knocked down or off the lane surface by the ball or another pin. Pins knocked down or off the lane surface by a pin rebounding from a side partition or rear cushion. Pins knocked down or off the lane surface by a pin rebounding from the sweep bar when it is at rest on the pin deck before sweeping dead wood from the pin deck. Pins...

Falling asleep or not paying attention when you are handling any kind of motorized vehicle can be dangerous, but doing so on a scooter bike and not wearing a protective helmet on your head can prove deadly.

The young woman featured in this dashcam video, reportedly from Russia, appears to have dozed off for a second or two on the bike and veered off her lane.

Luckily for her, the driver of the oncoming truck from the other lane saw her and made a quick maneuver at the last second avoiding a deadly head-on collision.

The woman hit her head on the side of the lorry and fell down from the motorcycle, but all told, she should feel extremely fortunate for living another day to tell the tale.

Scroll down to watch the video footage.

BI Answers: Why does your foot lose feeling when it falls asleep?

You've had your foot bent in an awkward position for a long time, and now it feels kind of numb, making it difficult to stand up. When this happens, we often say our foot is asleep.

That loss of feeling, also common in the legs and arms, is caused by the "temporary compression of nerves," says Rebecca Traub, an assistant professor of neurology at Columbia University. When the nerve is pinched, it doesn't communicate signals to the spine and brain correctly.

Nerves carry electrical signals like water through a hose, says Steven Vernino, a professor of neurology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and a fellow at the American Academy of Neurology. The signals are transmitted to the brain from a specific part of the body where they are recognized and a message is sent back down. For example, if you touch a hot stove, the nerves in...

What Does the Doctor Do?

To treat the broken bone, the doctor needs to know which kind of fracture it is. That's where X-rays come in handy. X-rays are like pictures that give doctors a map. They can see what's broken and set the bones back in their normal position.

After your bone has been set, the next step is usually putting on a cast, the special bandage that will keep the bone in place for the 1 to 2 months it will take for the break to mend. Casts are made of bandages soaked in plaster, which harden to a tough shell (that's why they last so long!).

Sometimes casts are made of fiberglass or plastic. Whatever the outer material, they also have a cotton inner lining so that the layer next to your skin is soft and comfortable. Casts used to be all white, but now they come in different colors and patterns. Casts today sometimes have waterproof liners, so you might be able to get them wet or even go swimming. But always ask the doctor the...
