(Business Insider)   In Bulgaria they now give you beer for doing nothing. Give. Beer. For free. For doing nothing. No really, you just do nothing and they GIVE it to you. Beer, that is. FARK: every three minutes   (businessinsider.com) divider line 64

That's hilarious and probably a pretty effective promotional tool.

point that thing at my cat.  She'll get free beer for hours on end.

Jacksonville does the same thing for going to Jaguars games.

Still not worth it.
 
2013-10-02 04:56:16 PM
2:59 into it... some jerk walks up and screams "beer block!" and waves his hands in front of you.
 
2013-10-02 04:56:38 PM
That works out to 3.5 cases of beer per day given away for promo work. Doesn't seem all that excessive, mostly just genius. Good on 'em.
 
2013-10-02 04:58:27 PM
Yeah, but they give you Amstel, so......ah hell it's free, gimme! gimme!

Too true...been to a couple of Jags games with friends who had got season tickets dirt cheap.  Liked the convenient shuttle ride from free off site parking, but everything else was a disappointment.  Nothing like obnoxious white trash screaming about how their team is the best when they've never even won a playoff game.

Back to the article...I'll take one in my office please
 
2013-10-02 04:59:30 PM
Unfortunately it's only Amstel.

Hard to get a beer if you have the shakes from getting free beer by not shaking.

If I stand still long enough, I might even find Viktor Krum.

I'll take a free Amstel, and they looked like tall boys too.  Thought that was a murkian thing.

1. Find motion sensors.
2. Find objects to tape over motion sensors
3. Get smashed.

The Jags actually won the very first playoff game they were ever in, in just their second season. They still suck something fierce though.

I hope it's still there in July.

And yeah, I want the free Amstel too.

Oh it's Amstel? nvm

That won't work. If the machine were designed to simply count down whenever there was no motion, it would be dispensing beer all night when nobody was around. So it won't have been designed that way.

Instead, the motion sensor would have to detect motion that stops, before the countdown timer engages. Essentially, the timer circuit is cleared by dispensing beer, then re-armed by motion, then it is triggered on by the motion stopping.

Now that you've taped over the sensor, it will never detect motion that stops, and so it never dispenses beer. So you have broken the beer dispenser. You are therefore a bad person and deserve to die in a fire.

Thanks for bringing logic into this.  I just wanted to get everyone drunk.

Yes, but have you seen their women? If they didn't have free beer, their population would dwindle within a decade.

It is not enough to get drunk, grasshopper. True wisdom lies in knowing how to get drunk on free beer.

Stunningly beautiful Bulgarian rhythmic gymnast Simona Peycheva disagrees most heartily:

And probably a few hundred thousand other hotties do too.

Why on earth would you think that?

And if standing still isn't your thing, you can always have all you want to drink just by running a couple miles.

But first the beer must be free.

And you just broke the free beer dispenser, so like I said, bad person dies in a fire.

This is a great gimmick but will never replace Greta down at the local watering hole.
Greta and her 36DD's can bring a head to the flattest of beers.

Because shiatz invented it in the 40's or so.  And America (which is getting better) doesn't compare to European tap beer.  I think they'd rather pass on a can vs getting a yummy tapped pint somewhere.
/free is free though.

The first two words of the headline are "In Bulgaria".

In Bulgaria there's a machine,
That makes Farkers with envy turn green,
At the sound of the bell,
It dispenses Amstell,
If my ear were a c*nt I would fark it.

/got a little lost at the end there...
 
2013-10-02 05:53:44 PM
I'll admit I don't know where Bulgaria is, specifically. Generally I believe it's somewhere near Romania.

FTA: "The machines use motion censors to determine whether the participant has moved during a timed 180-second span"

So, I guess censorship still exists in Bulgaria... Commies!
 
2013-10-02 05:59:35 PM
I'm thinking there is not really a motion sensor, just someone with a remote control. It might be the camera person or the person who check the age of the people who "win" a free beer.
 
2013-10-02 06:01:20 PM
They should have had one of those on Seinfield

CS,B:

Hour and a half puddle-jumper flight from Dehli to Kathmandu on Kingfisher Airlines... Right after the safety video the owner of the company has a brief "message from the owner" video. The guy looks like a plump version of the "Stay thirsty, my friends" guy and he's talking about how he selects every hostess for the airline. You can almost hear the "heh heh heh" underlying that.

Anyway, as soon as the plane makes altitude, they give you a beer. I sipped my beer, the very pretty hostess saw I was dry, asked me if I wanted another beer.

I get another beer? This is not the way I understand flying these days! What madness is this?


Three beers later...

hahahaha...

clearly you haven't been to Bulgaria.

Going out to a bar there when I was running 16 miles every Saturday, and swimming at least 6-8 hours a week... I looked fat.

The women all looked like models by American standards.
