This video has been snowballing in my head for the past year. I'm so pumped to finally get it out. It's a great reminder of how we interact with physics every second of the day in 1,000 different ways.

Ex-carnie here with a secret: The basketball toss hoops, the height has nothing to do with it. The shape of the rim itself is the trick. The hoops aren't actually round, they're oval.
I actually used to work the star game. Spent an entire summer doing it, was only able to get it completely out twice.

I remember in our preteen days my cousin paid extra money because he KNEW we were being scammed at a basketball shot game in Atlantic City. After roughly 4 rounds, he finally sunk a shot... that planted itself firmly into the hoop and stayed there.
We got our prize, but more importantly we kept our pride.

The ladder climb is actually really simple. In addition to his tips, if you have a strong core and good muscle control you will succeed. I ran one for two years and saw many a jacked up dude try and be humbled. If you overthink it, you’ll also fail. Whatever amount of pressure you apply to one side, you must apply that to the other side when you make your next move.

I used to work at an amusement park and we knew that no one would win the ring toss. You get the occasional odd ones but you can go a whole summer without anyone landing it. The ladder game was super funny. A few of my buddies worked for the ladder game and they got so good at it, they travelled to California and won a few prizes.

Winning outcomes divided by total outcomes gives you a ratio, you forgot to multiply by 100 to get a percentage ;) but nice video

Interesting video, but the premise right off the bat is idiotic. "You pay $7.50 for something that costs them $0.45." Well yeah, that's literally how buying things works. Otherwise I'd be able to get a pair of Nike's for less than twenty bucks.

Just a side note on center of gravity or balance for a man his center is closer to his chest and a women’s is closer to her waist resulting in most men not being able to stand with his back against the wall and picking something off the ground while most women can, but there’s always exceptions to everything.

So if the carnival games are scams, that means they're illegal, so carnivals are breaking the law?

This strategy I learned from a show called "Gravity Falls"




Aim for the dudes head and take the prize when he`s unconscious.

Works every time.

"Is that, like, illegal, sort of, or...."

"WHEN THE COPS are not AROUND, ANY THINGS LEGAL!!!" - Also from "Gravity Falls"

Back when I was a teen (late 60s) I went to a carnival and things were slow on the midway. The guy on one of the games called me over and let me play (but not for any prizes) for free. I succeeded darned near every time. After all that success, he suggested I pay for the opportunity to play for prizes. I figured that as soon as I started playing for a prize something about the game would change, and not in my favor. I did not take into account that the prize might cost less than what I would pay to play the game. Reminds me of the movie The Jerk where Steve Martin's character is running a "guess your weight or age" game.

The ladder game can be won by running up the center of the ladder while standing upright.

I have beat shooting the star a few times, but I worked on a carnival for four years. The trick is to shoot single BB's at a time, and you use your finger nail Insted of your finger itself. but it can be done!

That’s not true regarding an athlete being a master at every sport. Put your friend with an olympic athlete high jumper and we will see. Or a speed skater. Or a swimmer. Or how about an extreme skier? Your video was sound and contained intelligence until that ignoramus statement. 🤨
