Some questions that have cropped up about the vending machine:
1) Who has the keys to the vending machine?
2) What happens with the profits on vending machine sales?
3) Who empties the money from the vending machine?
4) What happens with the money once its emptied from the machine?

The second question in particular came up when discussing how the drinks 
in the machine cost less than $1 each.  Since that necessarily implies a 
profit, where are the profits going?
