…The Ultimate Vending Machine Challenge is challenging?

Ultimate Vending Machine Challenge

In the Ultimate Vending Machine Challenge, your goal is to kick the crap out of a vending machine using strategic, well timed, and well placed moves until it gives you the candy that you didn’t pay for, but you definitely deserve.

It’s surprisingly difficult considering Adult Swim put it out, so don’t be surprised if it takes a few rounds to get used to the rhythm, but once you do, you’ll be basking in the glow of MSG filled chips in no time.

…Trash is art?

Trashball Sign

Apparently, Justin Gignac isn’t the only one who thinks that garbage can be art. Christopher Goodwin, a 37-year-old dump truck driver from Washington D.C., collects trash and puts it into one-inch plastic balls that he calls Trashballs. He then fills two vending machines with these Trashballs, and for a quarter, anyone can get a piece of his work. So far he’s sold over 3,000 of them, for a total profit of $750 (in other words, he does it for the love, and not for the money). What love, you ask? “I kind of think everything deserves a second look… Someone designed this, manufactured it, used it and tossed it away”. These aren’t just G rated balls either; as he’s been known to fill them with “dead bugs, drug baggies and broken glass”. There’s even a sign over each dispenser, asking that no one under 18 buy a Trashball.
