Why don't drink vending machines have an option to add low-calorie sweetener to the drinks instead of sugar ? It could be a cost-plus option. The dispensers wouldn't need to be very big. Several different common brands could be offered.

       spoilsport, why can't the dispenser be enormous and very loud? with those knife switches, we used to be so fond of.

       Or a place where you have to kick it to activate it. Every now and then, you hit the jackpot and the change tray overflows like a slot machine.

Don't you realise how hard those are to get these days ? No Evil Superweapon would be taken seriously if it used all solid state triac controls for the power feed.   

       FarmerJohn: That onece happened to me with a pay-and-display parking ticket machine. PS I'm still feeling very bitter about the exploding sausages.

       A relative of mine who lives in England carries around sacharin tablets in her purse. I believe she said each tiny little tablet contains the sweetening power of a teaspoon of sugar (maybe it was a half-teaspoon; the tablets were tiny). Someone with such a dispenser could just order coffee black and sweeten it very easily, carrying easily a week's supply of tablets in a very small container.

       [supercat] you buy them in little dispenser type containers.
