Bwog is grateful for Columbia’s sizeable flock of vending machines, with their promise of large amounts of readily available, prepackaged foods, junk and otherwise. Certain oddities within the vending machine empire, however, cannot be ignored. • The green leaf symbol, supposedly found next to so-called “healthy snack choices” in campus vending machines, suffers from highly inconsistent […]
Bwog noted in February that iPods, newly present in Lerner vending machines, had apparently become as necessary to our daily lives as chips and condoms.
