Anyone know how to get free soda from a soda machine?

I have a Coca-Cola machine in my office, and I'm all alone. One of my life long goals has been to figure out how to get free soda from a machine...or even better, figure out how to unlock the money bin.
Google's usless for this. Help?

There are ways, but why would I help you commit a crime?

I know that...but I want to go to jail THIS way.

Oh ya, that soda machine company was supposed to pay us for having their machine in my office. We haven't received a check in months. It's payback time.

Ha! I have that exact torch! Just bought it to try some frame building. Anyway, I bet that will get you into the machine. I spose you could just go the stealthy way, and buy a locking picking practice kit off teh intarwebs, practice up, and then let loose your skillz on the machine.

You have to get the machine tilted forwards, towards you, at a precise angle of 44 degrees. Then hit the coin return button 7 times in a row while depressing the button for the drink you want.

In some countries, you can use tweeked coins of lower value as substitutes for larger valued ones. For example, in the UK you can superglue two 1 pence coins together, and as long as the machine relies on size identification rather than wieght, it will think you have entered a 1 pound coin.

Of course, I've never done that

You could apply this to many things. It really just depends on how much you like the individual you're speaking to.

No wonder it didn't work, I thought it was 46 degrees !! Thanks, I'll try again.

Watch the movie "Real Genius". Val Kilmer demonstrates pretty clearly how it can be done.

I used to know some tricks back in the day. One involved unplugging/plugging at the proper time, the other just involved holding a button down for like 2 minutes. I won't go into more info other than that both involved a dollar bill or a buy one, get one free scenario.

Well it is too late now. All this time you spent plotting to get a free pop made you lose out in oppurtunity cost.

Lure someone into the office to buy a soda, knock them unconscious once the machine vends.
