You insert a coin, and the next person tells you what you get. And they insert a coin, and so on.

So here we go - I insert a coin.

Your face fills with glee as the mysterious object tumbles towards the collection point at the bottom of the machine. You reach down and pick it up, revealing a... minature, but perfect replica, of the vending machine.

No refunds, to your abject disappointment.

You recieve what appears to be a television remote, however when you attempt to use it, you realise that you have the power to rewind, fast forward or pause all of creation (apart from yourself, of course)

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE UNLOCKED EARTH'S REMOTE CONTROL!

*taps the side of it gently as the machine whirs into life, in the hope that extra gifts may fall down*

You recieve an honours degree in Bovine Accidentology, but this is quickly revoked after you mis-diagnose a local bull's cause of death and cost the car insurance industry millions after claims based on false science.

Shamed and depressed, you retire to a highland cottage and die alone and unloved.

You recieve a rare blood disease, and through its bizarre effects you can now see the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The information is too much and you are essentially blind in daylight and busy cities, so you seek out darkness in rural areas and live out the rest of your life in a cave, hunting rats for food using your enhanced vision.

You get noticed by an aspiring young film director who casts you in the role of a vending machine repair-man in his latest film, "Insert Coin". Unfortunately, the film bombs at the box office and the press blame your terrible acting abilities. Your career is ruined.
