Everything becomes stable.

You've entered BeOS.

I insert a coin, and nothing crashes.

You recieve a wheelchair. This is convenient in light of recent events, but it later turns out that the wheelchair is cursed. You spend months fighting off bats inexplicably attracted to the wheelchair that you are unable to rid yourself of, and eventually go insane.

You receive a cruel and ironic fate. THink of something cruel and ironic, put it here and pretend I wrote it.

I insert a piece of small thin plastic wrapped in tin foil to that machine thinks it's a coin (I used to do this all of the time).

As you are putting the coin into the slot, you are noticed by one of your former girlfriends from your ill-fated film career days. She invites you to a fancy restaraunt and proceeds to tell you how much better her life is than yours. Although, you are having a good time, you can't help but wonder what your prize was so you make your appologies and return to the machine.

You get a fortune cookie. Your fortune reads "Take a chance with an old friend. She won't be around for long." You decide to take the machine's advice but your ex has moved to China in disgust. You regret having gone back for your prize, until the day you die.

GAME OVER

Worm Mad - is he a mad worm or a person mad about worms? I'll give you a clue - it's not the first one.

You also recieve a dirty coin plus the dirty clothes that hadn't been washed for 3 months, then a 3-week break at a fancy motel in Finland.

1 coin inserted.

You get a bunch of smileys: :( :P :roll: :twisted: :mrgreen:
But the smileys turn out to be evil monkeys and do an evil dance of doom that does something evil happening. You try to stop them, but you can't because your iPod was affected by a virus. (WTF???)

You receive a copy of Lemmings for the Commodore 64. Technically astounding, considering the system it's running on, but otherwise unplayable. Rather like Cannon Fodder for the GameBoy Color, in that respect...

There is a coin I
Hold in the palm of my hand.
Popped it in the slot.

You recieve a certificate of achievement, following your heroic efforts in saving a dozen orphans from a burning building. However, you really did your knee in at the time, and that knee is destined to cost you in the long run.

You recieve two identical rubber balls. One has a word "with" on it, the other "without". In attempt to find out with and without what, you bounce the two balls off the ground, and they bounce the same way. You then weigh them, stretch them, squish them, coumpute their bouyancy, all producing identical results. You then start doing every physical and chemical tests that you can think of or find on the internet. Eventually you go insane trying to find the difference.


I put in the dirty coin that I got from the machine last time.

You recieve a packet of crisps. You are delighted to discover that they are your favourite flavour. You enjoy the crisps and share them with your friends. Over the following week your friends accelerate to fame and fortune through tremendous inexplicable luck, yet you find yourself unluckier than ever.

You never share your food ever again, even though the whole thing was just a big coincidence.

You receive a copy of Sonic 2, but inside the case is actually a 'Super Mario Land' cartridge which will not work on a Sega Mega Drive and also too small. The next day you take it back, and eventually got the Sonic 2 cartridge.

*puts in a gold ring from the Sonic series and succeeds*

You receive dynamite. Before it explodes, you get a flash in your mind of that FMV sequence from Worms 2 where the worm playing the slot machine suffers a similar fate. You decide to devote the rest of your life to following the Ways of the Worm, worshipping the Concrete Donkey, and so forth. Unfortunately you are blown up, discovering there is no afterlife in the process.
