When I was a kid...

When I was a kid you could buy a Coke for 25 cents. We also used to put 25 cents into an "arcade machine" and played this for 90 seconds...then we'd have to shove in another quarter.



Today a coke costs more like $1.79 at a convenience store. But we can pay 99 cents and play this for as long as we want:
