    I just learned of this little gem: https://mcbroken.com/

    "A 24-year old software engineer, Rashiq Zahid, built the app by fiddling with the McDonald's API."

    "Here?s how it works: McDonald?s keeps track of which locations have a broken ice cream machine. If you try to order ice cream at a given McDonald?s, and its machine is broken, you can?t add the items to your cart: They?ll be marked as unavailable. So Zahid?s app places an order ($18,752 is the total worth) every minute at every McDonald?s in the US. He?s not paying thousands of dollars, of course?he?s merely seeing whether his orders go through."
