i consider myself to be progressive... why? because i notice that vending machines use the most poor technology to do something incredibly basic. last night during the most boring class on the planet (political science, professor edgerton, age 354123 years and counting), i went to get a water bottle from the vending machine. after putting in a dollar bill (it was $1.25 for water, RIDIC!!!), i attempt to put in the extra quarter to get my ever so desired beverage. i literally put in 12 DIFFERENT QUARTERS (yes, i counted... and yes, i have that many quarters on had) before the machine finally accepted one of my quarters as legitimate US currency!!!! by the time i had gotten it, i was so dang parched i thought i might drink someone's blood. so, i would like to see our society go from the prehistoric pictured above, to perhaps a more progressive and technologically appropriate machine, pictured below.
