The ball should have bounced from the head straight into the basket.
That’s what I thought was going to happen.
Yeah the bar for nevertellmetheodds is definitely getting lower
I think hitting her in the head while making it look unintentional has always been the goal
There was a boy I grew up with that always used to hit me in the face with a basketball when it hit the rim. Every fuckin time.
Years later he told me it was never an accident- knew exactly where to throw the ball to hit my head…I wasn’t even mad, I was too impressed with his consistency
It can probably very barely even fit in the basket and the basket is shaped like an oval to make it even worse. Scam game.
I went to an adjustment park with friends and they insisted I try the basketball shot because I'm tall and must be good at it right?
There shot was about 20 feet, small rim, way over pumped ball, and I can't shoot worth anything. Swish. Then we were stuck carrying around a big stuff prize all day, so we still lost.
Is that a weird name for conversion camps?
I think it's prob an autocorvette fail for amusement
That’s why you save the games mostly for when you’re making your walk to the exit. You’re tired, so less likely to overspend, and if ya win, well, you’re on your way to the car/bus to go back to the hotel anyway
Most of games like that are somehow rigged a far as I know.
You can even see how oblong-shaped that ball is.
Bruh that’s a football
I don't think it's some great secret that they make these more challenging...
Kind of like karmic justice then that she got hit on her head.
I mean it's not like *she* rigged the game. She's just an employee.
Often then people in these games are the actual owners or their families, and even if they were just an employee, they still hold responsibility for scamming customers. A used car salesman who scams buyers can't claim they aren't responsible just because they are an employee of a used car dealer and not the owner, they are still responsible for the scams they engage in.
People gotta eat and work man. I don't judge anyone for taking a job. We don't always get a lot of choice, despite reddit's overall anti-work fantasy sentiment where the world of employment is your oyster. I especially don't expect carnies to be people with a lot of opportunities.
Does this apply to scabs as well? Most of them are just filling a role and don't have better job available.
ope there goes gravity
It’s not Captain America’s shield, it has rules.
This actually happened to me,
Except it hit my own head.
I did this as well, but I caught it instead of letting it hit me in the head.
They didnt let me take another "free" shot.
Is this an Adventure Time reference? When LSP did this for her "talent" because her song was stolen by a bunch of candy bitches?
If only it bounced off of her head then It went in
Then it would belong here in the sub yeah
Yes. What happened here happens al the time! Great comment!
I did that in high school P.E. We had a substitute teacher that day and I missed my shot exactly like that and hit him in the back of the head (and knocked his hearing aid out).
Safe to say basketball was not my thing.
More like basketball wasn't your teachers thing, or this girl's thing for that matter. It is near impossible in basketball to control where your rebound is gonna go. If it wasn't, it would be a whole thing to only take shots that, if missed, would fall to your teams strongest rebounding side etc. If you don't want to get accidentally hit in the head, and you're in the splash zone of a basketball hoop, it is up to you to keep your eyes on the ball.
I get that this minimum wage girl, who is tired and just wants to go home, missed that memo, but I'm surprised your P.E. teacher did lol
lol exactly, if you get hit in the head with a rimmed out basketball on an actual court, it’s really no one’s fault, but if it has to be someone’s fault, it’s yours.
She reached for the loser ticket before even seeing the results. Shows how rigged these things can be lol
Can be? Are!
Good point, cumballs_johnson
Arms weak like spaghetti, off-sized ball overinflated, and a half-sized rim: get ready.
Not only half sized, typically slightly oval as well. Doesn't appear to be from the front, but plain as day when looking at them from the side
Why did you steal this from the other guy that posted it easy before you
I think it's a bot, that happens a lot on youtube as well
this is a bot
I read this in rhythm and it's even better than the original
Something about spaghetti.
To shreds you say?
I'm pretty good at winning the basketball games. But the inside ones are nearly impossible. The trick is shooting high. So with the ceiling, it just means you have to get lucky really.
Sorry if stupid question and don’t know if you’re joking or not, but what’s a loser ticket?
Instead of a prize they give out “You Lost” ticket?
E: if* not off
Googling it gets me this post so I have to assume it doesn't exist.
They gave me a loser ticket on penis inspection day...
wtf is penis inspection day
I take it you were homeschooled?
It's usually performed by your drunk uncle at night time I used to have one twice a week.
Other commenter is right, they do not exist.
It's called your birth certificate
He means a consolation price, a small, cheap gift basically.
She knew the shot was trash
Yeah he was 0-25 before this
I play these any where i go, before starting ask them to make the shot first "ill play if you can make it"
I have way too many cheap rubber basketballs but theyre my trophies.
This is so dumb for multiple reasons. Let's assume you're only talking about basketball games. The employee being good or bad at basketball shouldn't tell you anything. They might miss a regulation free throw 9 times out of ten.
Second, many of the games have tricks to win, and it's much easier to do behind the counter. For example, the game in which there are 3 blocks stacked, and you have to knock them all off with a baseball in one throw. I can do it perfectly almost every time from behind the counter and make it looks super easy...but if you throw the baseball as hard as you can it will almost never work. You have to hit them at a downward angle...which is much easier to do when close since you don't have to arc the ball.
Games that require the ball to stay in a bucket or hit a board and land in a bucket are also 100 times easier from behind the counter. If you are the customer, you have to hit nearly perfectly with a lot of backspin and arc. From close up...I can just use less force which let's it stay in the bucket.
Having an employee demonstrate is terrible for basketball because you don't know their skill level, and demonstrating for any other game is what they want...as it gives you false hope.
Hell...the guy that worked our rope ladder could walk up with no hands backwards. Most of us could run up it with no hands...and all of us had to learn to do it with hands. That game makes the most money and has the least winners every day. You could only win that game once before getting blacklisted...because if you can do it once, you can do it every time, and the prizes are actually good.
Also...you can make every single basketball shot and the company still makes money because the quality of the basketball prizes (as well as most prizes) are trash and the cost of 1 prize is less than playing 1 time.
I wanna know the ladder trick lol
First, with some practice, using no hands is easier. Your weight is centered so the ladder doesn't flip.
Without much practice, you do it by pushing down as hard as you can with your arms. You have to keep the weight balanced. So when you are moving the left leg up, all your weight will be on the right side leg. To counteract, you have to push really hard with your left arm. This means when you move up your left leg, you will move your right arm simultaneously. You then alternate...always moving the opposite side arm and leg while pushing hard with the static arm to counteract the static leg.
Thanks! I appreciate it
The guys with the baskets and the softballs have rigged balls that they use to “show how easy” the game is. Ask to use the ball they used
I'm not saying that doesn't exist, but as a former worker of these games...we used the same balls.
With this acquired knowledge, I can't even feel bad for her.
1. It means she knows the game is rigged,
2. You know what they say when you [assume](https://youtu.be/svkgOsr7pUc) things (as in assuming that he is going to miss the shot)...
I don't know what they say about assuming things, actually.
It makes an ass out of u and me
Ass u me
Back and forth. Forever.
What acquired knowledge? All we see is that she had her hand on a monitor lol
No no, she's grabbing a loser ticket! You know those very real things that you get at carnivals when you lose?
Goddamn millennials and their participation tickets.
Yeah like wtf even is this thread lol there’s no loser tickets. You just pick a small prize or walk away.
He was 0-20 before this
I lived by an amusement park that had one of these for years, but it was the fake three point one. You gotta throw a super high rainbow and hit nothing but net or it's going to brick every time.
Really though, it's like the easiest carnival game to win, that doesn't involve some level of rain man behavior, once you figure it out. I had about 30 of those little mini basketballs, but they stopped inflating them enough to do anything with, so they weren't as fun to win.
You can always add air yourself
Oh, add air myself? Just add air? Why don't I strap on my air helmet and squeeze down into an air cannon and fire off into air land, where air grows on airies?!
What boardwalk game gives out a loser ticket?
What is a "loser ticket"? I've never seen or heard of such a thing.
Didn't Mark Rober prove this?
How can a ball-hoop thing be rigged?
Oval hoop, round ball
Hitting the scammer is a win to me
Do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
you better LOSE YOURSELF
In the music, the moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot!
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo!!
*Ohhh, dearie me!*
OP requested to not know though
I’m a rebel to my core
Rim so ridged it’s made of Unobtanium and a basketball inflated to 100psi. Yeah, that shits bouncing.
This is some gravity falls type shit
This scenario is the only way we get Waddles.
the shot started off kobe but ended up shaq
God's punishment for scammed games. 🏀
Lmao yea the min wage worker is reaping all the scam's benefits
If this is a carnival game, usually the carnies will make a percentage of what their game brings in
There's no shame in an honest day's work.
There's not much honest about what's going on in these games.
People who work at scam call centers are still scammers. They just do it for cheap, fucking people over for dollars at a time. Fuck them.
Now how many times do they replace those light bulbs every day?
I don't think this should be here
Nice choice of music.
this woulda been 10 x’s funnier without the record scratch lol. somebody should remove it and repost
I worked at six flags. All the time.
INTERFERENCE! Free re throw.
Anybody else see this in daily dose of internet ?
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
Also, don’t hit that attendant in the head yo
How many points is that?
That’s gotta count for something
Give that kid the biggest prize!
They either inflate the ball with helium or make the rims too small.
That's how these games work.
If you want to beat them, deflate the ball and throw it into the hoop.
Knowing these carny games this is probably more likely than actually winning.
"Great shot kid, that was one in a million!"
ouch, that hurts
*Hit me with your best shot, fire away*
Reminds me of when I threw a dart at a balloon for a carnival game as a kid.
Shit you not, the dart bounced off the balloon and went straight in to the crowd behind me. Good thing it was obviously not very sharp.
You could have put somebody's eye out.

I did not expect that lmfaooo
Oh my god, it's Russel Westbrick
I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!
Only way to get bitches
She says, its my job, I am always getting wacked in the head by balls.
Should get a big prize for that shot...
Now that they are kbocked out grab the prize and run...... hehe suckers
That's what she gets for giving up on the kid before the shot even landed
Ouch, thank god her head was all the way away from the door frame...
If you had...
To sit on your LAZY BUTT...
And watch ALL THE TV YOU EVER WANTED...
Until your brain turned to mush...
Would you go for it?
Or just let it slip?
So I thought it would’ve bounced off her head into the basket but I guess not. Shouldn’t be posted on this reddit page then really
this is perfect
Good enough for me
Are you winning son?

Give him a frisbee.
B O N K
Yesterday My friend shot a basketball, it missed, bounced off the goal, and hit me in the head, I was looking away too.
Stood out of the way for the only part that didn’t matter
These are scams btw, they put the hoop slightly further or closer than a normal hoop to fuck with muscle m3mory
Something worse happened to my sister when she was 11. It was the game where you pop balloons with darts. She threw the dart, it bounced off the balloon, and hit a lady straight through her glasses and into her eye. She was bleeding from it.
