Long time between vending machine refills
 
Alexey Pajitnov (Алексей Пажитнов) was the creator of Tetris. When visiting the US in the eighties, he mentioned how hard it was to get cigarettes in Soviet Russia. A reporter made a comment about a theory that the government was keeping them scarce in order to improve the health of the populace. Pajitnov dryly replied with, "Yes, and they don't give us food in order to keep us from getting fat!"

I've been trying to cut back on soda in an effort to be healthier. While sometimes I really want a Dew in the morning, it seems that those who refill the the vending machines are supporting me in my quest by not restocking the vending machine in the basement of Brothers College for weeks. Yeah, it's been ENTIRELY sold out for at least a couple of weeks. Geez.

I'm also less than thrilled that the candy went up by another five cents for the start of the semester. Did the soda price go up as well?

While the candy prices have gotten insane, the soda has stayed at the same price for a while now. Not that there is any soda to be purchased, much of the time.

I also love how they'll sometimes put two columns of the same snack in, and then stagger between two different snacks in another column. Maybe they had too much of one and not enough of the other when restocking, and maybe I'm giving them too much credit...

Of course, there is that soda fund that's gone untapped this semester. Some people were thinking the Software Support Specialist should do something about that.

Sometimes it's hard for the Software Support Specialist to find parking near his local supermarket, but he'll try.

Why doesn't Drew just get sponsored by Red Bull?

Or at least Sobe.

Sobe is tasty.

*drools*

We used to get Jolt and Crank2o in the Snack Bar.

Those were the days, I tell you.

The cigar place downtown used to have a decent selection of Jolt, including all of the different flavors, but stopped last I checked. Some 7-11s and QuickCheks have been known to carry it.
