"Hey, so why do the stupid M&M machines have facial recognition?" SquidKid47 pondered.

The Reddit post sparked an investigation from a fourth-year student named River Stanley, who was writing for a university publication called MathNEWS.

Stanley sounded alarm after consulting Invenda sales brochures that promised "the machines are capable of sending estimated ages and genders" of every person who used the machines without ever requesting consent...

I'm not one to vandalize other's property because I want to sock it to The Man...

...But I'd be sorely tempted to cover the lens with a bit of epoxy.

I've never even seen an M&M machine so I doubt I'd ever have the opportunity.

I do like a 2lb bag of plain M&Ms though.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I avoid vending machines, I find most stuff overpriced and with some planing, I try to bring ahead what I need: drinks, snacks. Saves me a lot of cash and I guess some privacy, LOL

The only place I can vaguely recall that I've ever seen an m&m vending machine is at a rest stop. And I'm not sure about that, but if someone is at the Chesapeake rest stop, please check it out.



Hurts like a bastid...
