    The machine buzzes and whirs for nearly a minute; it's long enough for you wonder if it would actually work or if the cursed blood of a pseudo-demon has broken it. At the end of your wait, a jewel CD case for Nocturne plops down out of the vending machine.

    I insert a spare copy I have of the graphic novel series SAGA, Volume 1.

    Nothing comes out for some time. After some time, an envelope full of various banknotes and a handwritten note "Volume 2, plz?" come out.

    I insert a regular garden gnome. And irregular garden gnome. And a recursive garden gnome, just to be sure.

    Out tumbles a small glass vial. It has Hiragana and Kanji characters, and below it is a small label in English. It reads "Tears and sweat of game developers for this game."

    I insert a small monitor for an old DELL computer.

    You get a confused gnome in white T-shirt that says "#1 Fan of Odentin's Desk!". He holds a miniature model of your desk, on which stands something resembling a miniature gnome holding something rather small...

    I insert a half of cucumber, pack of 10 years old ravioli and toothpaste (children's, strawberry-flavoured).

    Out pops a McDonald's Hamburger. It is warm, and it has a little tag that declares its age to be 52 years old "but still delicious!"

    Two weeks later, you get back the same car with a few thousand miles more on the clock and some photographs of gnomes on a road trip. The gas tank is full and it's been cleaned and serviced; however there's also a contraption attached to help them work the pedals.

    I insert my bicycle.

    You get a "Best Disney Songs" compilation cd back. When played, however, it turns out to actually be a Black Sabbath album that's been mislabelled. The children's hospital you donated it to were unamused.

    I insert a DVD of "snow white".
