The Beer ATM

A friend sent me this article and I had three immediate reactions to it, and then a fourth a bit later.

  1. They made a self-serve! That’s pretty cool.
  2. Wait. That’s a little dangerous.
  3. Oh. They have figured out how to charge you for a taste. The greedy bastards.

It’s that third point that stuck in my throat. And then it hit me:

4. This process has been casino’d.

That is to say; you hand over your “unlimited card of money” and press a pretty button over and over again to have “fun” dispensed to you.

And the more I think about that, the more I hate it.
