Tongue Snack Machines

Ok being the garbage guts i am, i was amazed and excited to see our new snack machine at work. Gotta say it's unbelieveable the stuff i can get. From usual chips and cans of drinks, to sausage rolls, Oak Milk, Yogart, mircowavable pasta snacks, chocolate and juices. Mad thing is this resides in the one machine.

I think the most extreame snack machine was instant noodles with boiling water dispenser at uni. :crazy1:

Mmmm Candy....

Make sure you don't get your hands caught in the vending machine like Homer did :) and don't forget to leave a note in the suggestion box... 'No more apples in the vending machine please'.

Also keep this in mind:


NEVER, EVER, TRY TO GET A FREE DRINK BY ROCKING THE MACHINE. Do not ignore this piece of advice! Attempting to obtain a free drink by rocking the machine back and forth can result in serious personal injury or death! An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Nov. 11, 1988, p. 2697) documents 15 cases in which men trying to get a can out of the machine were crushed. 3 died, the other 12 required hospitalization for injuries such as fractures of the skull, toe, ankle, tibia, femur, and pelvis; intercerebral bleeding; knee contusion; and one punctured bladder. The article states that because the sodas are located in the upper half of the machine (so that they can fall into the dispensing slot), the center of gravity of the machine is abnormally high and the machine will fall after it has been tipped only 20 degrees, a deceptively small angle. A large, fully loaded machine can weigh in excess of 1000 pounds. I strongly advocate the policy whereby all Juice Machines must display the label "WARNING: Tipping this machine or any other unstable object weighing in excess of 1000 pounds onto yourself can result in serious bladder injury or death."

Gaz, sounds awesome. Do you guys have to pay for that stuff? At my work we have tea rooms on each floor with meusli bars, biscuits, tea & coffee, cappuccino machines, and other crap. In our lunch room we have a shop style double fridge (glass doors) with all sorts of drinks and also beer and other alcoholic beverages for after work. Oh, and a pool table as well! :s5
One of the few good things about this place!:beerchuge

Years ago when I was a young juvenile delinquent I used to hang around this gym and play the pinball machines and scam the vending machine. You'd put your money in the machine and then press the button to select what food you wanted and a split second later hit the coin return button and you'd get your food and your money back. The management wised up to us after a while and kicked us out. Bugger.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
