About six months ago my workplace installed a vending machine. Recently they updated the vending machine with a capability to win a second soda. That right, you can win at soda drinking. When you put in your money and select your beverage, an LCD screen on the machine will flash numbers just like a slot machine. If 7777 appears, you win a second drink.

Today I upgraded my computer to Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. This is the slickest version that I've seen, and I haven't had any trouble updating my drivers. Ubuntu is getting better and better. In terms of usability it has surpassed Windows, and soon it may surpass the Mac.
Install it on your computer by clicking on the link and following the directions.
Once when I was out-and-about in Nagoya I saw a girl wearing shorts that were cut so high that the pockets were exposed. I couldn't believe someone would intentionally do this. I thought I was seeing someone who wanted to wear daisy dukes, but didn't know all of the steps required to pull off this Merle Haggard approved fashion.
Well, the other day when I passed this mannequin, I realized that the exposed pockets were intentional; they're even made of lace. If any of my friends decide to adopt this trend, I'll be able to ask, "Got any gum?" or, "Do you have any spare change?" and I'll know the answer even before I ask the question. What will the Japanese fashionistas think of next?
