Here’s a ton of weird vending machines in Japan.

The new Best Buy vending machines at the airport are kind of ridiculous.

Do you really need a new i-Pod RIGHT NOW!?!?!

I remember walking through Chinatown in SF. The most popular thing there were cute little anime trinklets. Every shop had at least one vending machine of a different variety.

@iamthemob I know! Also, you’d have to spend a lot of time setting up the ipod. You’d have to have a laptop with you, and then you’d have to spend tons of time downloading songs. Unless you were waiting at the airport for hours, you wouldn’t have time to listen to anything on the plane.

I’m still freaked out by the sexual aid vending machines in some bathrooms.

A vending machine for used panties in Japan.

Not just used panties, either, but the used panties of schoolgirls.

How about Art in an old cigarette machine? This is the Website

All sorts of physical art, paintings etc.

The beer vending machines I saw in Germany were very cool and for a then 17 year old was weird to see. I always get a chuckle at the live fishing bait vending machines! Nice to know I can get leeches and meal worms at all hours of the night!

A dead snake. Now, if that isn’t motivation to quit snacking, then I don’t know what is.

A show I was watching features vending machines in Japan near train stations – with live crabs, some of the people thought it was an excellent idea…

A Rosetta Stone vending machine. Not even lying.

Here’s a video of convenient live crabs. Japan’s stupendous lead in the soiled schoolgirl panties arena is another indication of a USA in decline. Soiled schoolgirl panties could, of course, be a variation on the “live crabs” theme.

Well in Japan they apparently sell used panties.

Me though, never seen anything that wasn’t traditional in any vending machine.

There’s one somewhere that sells gold bullion.
