       Is it even possible to dribble a basketball on a trampoline?
half, Nov 16 2002
  

       Excellent "Rye" question, half...

       I agree with waugsqueke on it being really bad.
DrCurry, Nov 16 2002
  

       I agree with me that it wouldn't work anyway.

       Bouncy bouncy   

       in the air   

       Bouncy bouncy   

       Halfbakers squabaling everywhere   

       What is it about trampolines and halfbakers that makes them squable so ?

       Amazing. It's an argument where everybody seems to agree somehow... (checks to see if he hasn't slipped into the twilight zone)

       Don't drag me in to the fight. I don't care whether it's mfd or not. I was just doing my usual thing: attempting to determine whether or not an idea would work in the real world. Not an appropriate thing to do around here I suppose.

       Yep. It's only taken me 7 months to finally figure out that I don't belong here.

       half, When i saw your query, i decided that a little practical experiment was in order. I went down to the local sports centre and found otu if there was a trampoline club, or some such, and they told me that they met on Sunday nights.   

       So, on Sunday i went along and pretended that i didn't speak Norsk, and proceded to attempt to bounce the basketball on the trampoline. It was difficult at first, as with any new skill, but after a while it became easy, and i was able to bunce the ball with a reasonable level of competence.   

       Then i was asked to leave.

       And oddly, neither has 'Anti-Admiral Device'.

So you're in the kids' ward
You're in there cos you're ill
How about some Pavulon
So I can see you chill

       They actually have something like this,on Spike TV, called SlamBall.   

       I hate to say this but,this idea has been used in America,and it seems to be a good idea.   

       Only the court's paints have trampolines (4),but still good idea,tyskland.
