Rob the guy who comes to refill it? That way you get the money and delicious snacks.

Me and my friends once tried to put some clear plastic tape over the dollar (packaging tape). That way once it goes in you can pull it out. Never got to finish trying it though, some kid told manager on us, and we had to run from the laundry cleaner.
Manager: "Me call cops on you"
I am ready and waiting to pre-order the Hak.5 seasons!!!

does anyone one actually know how the vending machines calculate what coins you put in, is it weight or size or something totally different?

I've heard it's weight but I don't know how reliable that was...

Size and weight. I think the coin has to fall threw a sized slot thats sprung to the weight of that coin. When I was at college our metal work tutor was getting a weekly visit from the vending machine refill guy to return the bits of metal he'd fished out of the machines.

Oh these machines cannot be duped with fake money...

They scan for weight, size, shape, composition of metals, density. And we all know paper money is on another level.

Best way is to do a steak out and see if the stock-boy uses the password interface instead of a key...

A smart person would literally hack the coin slot and splices wires till it goes boom or actually gives you credit.
