I’m not an old dude, but I’ve been around and seen a few things. You just learn not to be surprised by life anymore, though I have to say I’ve surprised by a post over at Divine Caroline. Their entry details bizarre vending machines from around the world. There are only five and that’s more than enough…
The Japanese have a love affair with vending machines. From beer to cigarettes, to rice and ramen, probably the weirdest (and the nastiest) machines are those that sell dirty schoolgirl panties. Soiled underwear from pre-pubescent girls … I guess there’s a niche for every perv.
Don’t Forget the Lube
In London, bars, night clubs, hair salons, and health clubs have started to sell sex toys from vending machines, including your run of the mill vibrators and, you know, your everyday anal beads and cock rings. Those crazy Brits and their anal beads.
A walk down any San Francisco street and the heady smell of freshly rolled joints and pot smoke is easily recognized. Maybe that’s because in California, medical marijuana is legal and there are a ton of hidden (and not so hidden) pot shops where those with medical marijuana prescriptions can purchase their ganja of choice. These plain-looking vending machines are housed in rooms outside the shops, making it easy for potheads to access their herb 24/7, granted they have a proper prescription. Talk about reefer madness.
It’s more like snicker inducing. Couple questions come to mind. Who collects packages the soiled panties, how are lobsters vended and does a technician get a contact high when he services a ganja machine? See the complete list over here.
