    I`d always go with weight.

    Being Fat and being heavy are really different aspects.

    And you`ll STILL pay more to play than you would for the prize itself.

    That`s not really the point of the game. They write down thier guess beforehand, you can`t see it, you say what month you were born in, they show you the guess.

    It`s more of a mind reading thing, not like they just say, I think you were born in August, and you`re like "nope, October sucker".

    My friend and I have cheated playing the ring toss game. It was kind of an accident, but it worked. I accidentally threw my ring too far and it went out the booth. The carny had to go out and get it. While he was out there, my friend reached over and placed a ring down on one of the bottles and then threw one and was "surprised" and started cheering. We won a care bear about 4 feet tall.

    I worked in the games department of a local amusment park last year and though most of those tricks work, a few of them are a little off. With the basket toss you want to stand back about 10 feet(if they let you) and throw it back handed while trying to make it hit the top of the basket and it will fall right in. Another one was the rope ladder, use their technique but go up as fast as you can because if you slow down you will loose your balance. Hope that helps next time you go to a theme park or carnival.

    They forgot the one where you use the mallet and just smash the workers foot then run off with a prize. Always works for me!

    Also I always do that with the darts. Who needs accuracy when the workers actually hide behind stuff because sometimes the darts go rogue and come back.

    All those born in October, I`m proud to say you were all conceived on valentines day probably.

    Yes, your dads` semen was a gift to your mother on the day of love. Nice.

    Why does it seem everyone here is actually born in October? Isn`t that pretty uncommon, out of 12 months?

    That being said... me too.

    These were handy hints tho, but I`d like a video of someone going to a circus and ripping them off with this stuff.

    Today is my birthday! But I`d totally lie to win one of those games. Carnies scare me and they take all your money. I`ve played canival games like 3 times in my life, and the men always seem like they want to rape you

    Well common birthdays are August, September, and October because of Christmas, New Years, and Valentines day. As for that equation... assuming the ; was an equal mark, then answer is -33568... but since the ; is there, I have no clue what you really want to know.

    The State Fair of Texas is comin` up soon... :)
    This one carnie once started yelling at me for staring at the lopsided basketball hoop. lol

    Anyway, this sounds nice, but I want to see any witnesses who can prove true to these tips (especially the ladder one that I see mostly little kids try or the `bigger` dads who try to bring the ladder rope down to the floor).
