Random fact of the day


If I'm reading this right...

A decade ago, a Consumer Product Safety Commission report tracked vending machine deaths from 1977 till 1995, thirty seven Americans were killed when they got overly aggressive, toppling a vending machine to get a reluctant quarter or cola – an average of about two per year, or twice the number killed by sharks in the US. Just when you thought it was safe to get a Dr. Pepper...


Twice as many people get killed yearly by vending machines as by sharks. Zoinks!

I don't feel fatter any other time than when my candy bar gets stuck and I'm attacking the machine to get it out. "FAT GIRL FIGHTING THE VENDING MACHINE!!!! GET. IN. MAH. BELLAY!!!"
