It didn't involve any deaths, but I did join iPod nation this afternoon as a result of similar inane motivation to win something free that you can buy for not very much.

Tricia was in line at Safeway, where an iPod Shuffle was to be given away to some lucky shopper. A young man was buying small items and going through the checkout line again and again.

Tricia stepped aside to let him go ahead of her. He bought his gum or whatever, and she won the iPod.

Now I can listen to podcasts, whatever those are.

A later report says she drank 'more than a half gallon.'

A half gallon isn't all that much.
