Free Food for Some

by duncanr

The economic climate in many countries right now means folk are having to make hard choices – such as whether to spend their money on feeding their family or heating their homes, etc

This time of year, with Thankgiving, followed a month later by Xmas, is a particularly expensive time for families in the USA. One can imagine then how much it would mean to reach the checkout and be told that all your groceries were free – that someone else was buying them for you

P.S. before you get carried away by a warm glow at this demonstration of human behaviour at its best, take a look at the youtube comments on this video – as if you needed any reminder that some folk will always look for the negative in any situation !

Free Beer for doing Nothing

by duncanr

There’s good news –

Amstel Brewery has installed vending machines in the Bulgarian cities of Sofia, Varna, Plovdiv, and Bourgas that dispense cans of Amstel Beer

There’s even better good news –

the beer is Free

There’s a CATCH –

customers have to stand completely still in front of the machines for a total of 3 minutes – if motion sensors detect movement, the timer is reset to zero

[i’m off to check flights to Bulgaria and practice some yoga] 😆
