Vending machine games  
The vending machine here has been getting increasingly unreliable, often spitting out two-for one or just refusing money and giving out free sodas. Yesterday, I got two free sodas when it refused my money.

Today's free haul (in one dump that clogged the output tray): 1 doctor pepper and five pepsis.

Wait, Amazon doesn't give free sodas?!?!

The sodas are full price, but if you buy two cases you get free shipping.

They're cheaper than at the store...

Really? The vending machine here charged $0.60.

Of course, I've been averaging $0.21 over the last two weeks...

So ... one beverage and five cans of ballast?

I managed to jettison all five cans of ballast to the occupied offices on my way back to my desk.

RE: Vending machine games
Do you remember the first time you wrote a "vending machine" program for the vending machine problem in class? I think it was very soon after "Goodbye cruel world".
