    ok this is the deal.
    I was at a little tourist shop in Liverpool with my mate once and i noticed he was having trouble breathing. Turns out he was just strugling for air through laughing so much! This is what he'd spotted.

    it's a little piggy bank type thing.
    You put your money through the slot* at the top, it falls through and spins on the little table in the middle. When it stops spinning, it drops into the bottom.
    Simple enough, yeah?

    You just have to wonder why they even bother :roll:

    I once bought a piece of oiled leather that was used to polish a pool cue...you should have seen the instructions on that. The English was fine but it read like it should have been on the back of a dirty movie. :wink:
