The Sum of Diligence

My brother, dutifully peeling off the stickers from every can of Georgia coffee he buys. Each sticker is one point, and once you amass a certain number of points, you can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a "mystery prize". Over the years, he has gone out of his way to gather stickers, drinking the same soda and buying the same bread for days on end. This is not to be laughed at. He once won a set of dishes, and most recently, an USB flash drive commemorating the new James Bond film. (Is there any correlation between an USB and Quantum of Solace?) I only hope that he hasn't burned a hole through his stomach with all the coffee-drinking.

That coffee is pretty good but I would get tired of it if I drank it every day.
