My Basketball Experiment

Soccer season has started and with that brings two hour practices once a week. I really never realized how bored I was during these practices until tonight. I normally stay in my car and catch up on homework during this time. Tonight, the little girl I babysit had gotten Brenn's basketball out of the car and was playing with it. When her dad picked her up, she left the basketball just a little ways from the car. The basketball soon became the talk of the soccer fields, so in my severe state of boredom, I decided to do an experiment. For about an hour, I recorded how many kids walked by and what they did when they saw the basketball. Here are my results:

Out of 29 Kids:
19 Kids walked by and looked at the ball but did not say anything
7 kids walked by and said something about the basketball
1 kid touched the basketball
2 kids tried to take the basketball

The most memorable comment of the night was, "That's not a real basketball, it's too clean."

So based on this experiment, the soccer fields are safe for basketballs.

Stay tuned for more useless information...

    Carry on the wonderful work!

  3. This is the kind of thing I try to teach people. Can we count on a sequel?
