Uzzah: I briefly dated a carnie chick. She ran the game where you shoot a water gun at a target to make your horse run towards the finish line. She showed me the bank of switches they have under the counter to "reset" the horses, but pointed out that they could also be stealthily used by the operator to make a particular horse go forward regardless of how accurate the person playing it was. She usually let the games play out fairly, but she was a sucker for games where it was a little kid vs. a bunch of obnoxious frat boys.

/she'd smoke while screwing

Do you smoke during sex?

I don't know. I've never looked.

cig-mkr: No the games aren't rigged, the carnival is there to loose money.

Nothing worse than tight money.

The wooden basket game with the ball, you toss the ball with a back spin so it uses its own braking motion as it slides down the near side of the basket.

Those little donuts. Give paper money with some dead guys face on it to clean enough looking person and devour and repeat. But never go on the barferator afterwards.

Yes, they are obviously rigged.  They aren't idiots.
My favorite carnival moment was when I "made" a basket in the free-throw basketball hoop game and the ball got stuck in the rim (they mash the rims in so they are smaller than regulation) it's easy to see if you look at the sides but they try to set them up with the baskets recessed so people can't see the scam.  Of course I didn't care, it's not like I wanted to carry around a fifty pound Scooby Doo anyway.

No, it took the day off and went to the Fair.

And the carnies are often only working there to get money for meth.

Next question.

I think we've already established that.
