    >> I didn't want to say I was afraid?

    Is that a question?

    It's weird to think about the different statistics that are kept around the world. From now on, I'll be extra careful when shaking vending machines, though.

    Do you have proof to support this? And if this happends so much, why dont they implement safety featres on machines. All you have to do is attach a wire, and the wire to the wall. Many children were killed when stoves fell on them, so they developed that safety feature.


    I dont have a link for this, but on a documentary I heard that more people die from coconuts falling on their heads, than from shark attacks.

    At our school, our vending machines are actually screwed into the floor.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Well this girl comes to me and says that
    the machine is jammed or something... And
    wants me to shake it.
    I think you just have to be careful shaking it and make sure your
    to the side of the machine.

    Think of all the IBM engineers killed when deep blue attacked them. Since then they confiscated its motor skills indefinately and grounded it for two months.
