This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

As a music / film / games hack of some 17 years standing, I've had my own weight in freebies over the years. Dozens of free festivals, thousands of free CD's, hundreds of free gigs (usually with a plus 1), hotel rooms, brand new computer games, etc etc. I've made thousands flogging some of them on ebay, and am rarely stuck for anything to do; for instance, last night I went to the Waterloo IMax cinema to watch the new Beowulf movie, with my missus, for free, a week before it cam out. So I do now qualify as a postgraduate level blaggist.

The two particular items that stand out for me though, weren't got through the hack privileges. A) My day (non-journo) job issued me with a metal business card holder. No use for me as I barely give out one business card per year, but ideal as a holder and portable surface for the naughty powder. And B) I managed to blag myself onto a medical trial testing the effects of cannabis - so I got paid £60 to get 100% legally stoned, having pure THC injected straight into the bloodstream (which knocks your bollocks off BTW). That's good blaggery in my book.
