vending machines!

I was feeling rather hungry just now and felt that I had earned a nice, cold, caramely Snickers Ice Cream Bar (the nectar of the gods I tell ya what) because I rode my bike both last night and today.
So, I go to the lunch room, sure enough, they are out. So I go with my second choice; a Twix Ice Cream Bar (just as cold and caramely, but not nearly the perfection of a Snickers), the damn machine beeps and says (well, displays) "Please Make Another Selection". No explanation, no apology, nothing!

Of course I try it several more times, same thing. I then move onto my third choice, Granny B's Pink sugar cookies (450 calories of goodness, with frosting a quarter of an inch thick), same damn thing, "Please Make Another Selection".  :mad:

So I move onto my fourth choice, just a regular ButterFinger Bar (which is contained in a different machine), Finally success! However, as I'm sure you all have experienced yourselves because it does it every time.......the bar breaks in half as it lands at the bottom of the machine!  :mad:

Feel my pain.

At least it didnt get stuck in the machine, hanging by a magical thread that wont give no matter how hard you shove the machine. ultinately causing you to spend another $1.50

Not quite yet, the cycle isn't complete, in 2012 when a republican is in, then it will be Obama's fault for 4 years.

And I understand completely....just late Thursday night or early Friday morning.... {think}....hell I can't remember....it was dark and I'd been awake for awhile (day or so)....I had gone into Camp Mackall's fuel point to fuel up a Humvee....with the humidity and all I have been drinking water and GatorAdes to the saturation point....so once the truck was topped off I thought since I'm here I'll grab a nice ice cold Coke from the machine in front of the Shopette....so I pull up front, toss in $1.25 in quarters in the slot, hit the button and....

"NOTHING HAPPENS!"

Externally I am the calmest person on earth (except for the "WTF!" that slipped out)....Internally not so much....as I wonder if this Humvee is the one with the tow strap....and if I could get through the gate with the machine in-tow....since it was not a viable option and I wasn't going to try my hand again at vending machine roulette, I got my sweat soaked ass back in the truck and drove back out into the woods....

Oh that sucks....

New laptop or keyboard? Take the keyboard portion off and rinse it with alcohol and blow it out with compressed air. Just have to seperate the case. Not hard.

Just a new keyboard. Dont even have to seperate the case on this one. 3 screws and its out. I did clean it with alcohol. All that did was keep the keys from sticking. New keyboard was only $30 so i just went ahead and ordered one.

It was Carter's fault. He is the one to blame. Jimmy Carter. Do some research, its true. He was conspirator behind vending machine debacles. It was an earmark during the Iran Hostage Crisis of 1980.

The secret reason most of the middle east hates our guts. Lousy american vending macines. I can just imagine BinLaden years ago kicking a vending machine that diddnt drop his pretzles and vowing to get even.

I can see clearly now.
