    Anyone ever used any unusual vending machines? The beer vending machine was my downfall in Amsterdam, as I awoke in a room full of empty beer cans. I think the Japanese porn vending machines are brilliant,as it saves the leaving the porn shop gauntlet.

    Anyway at the weekend I saw a toasted sandwich vending machine and being me I had to buy one (despite not even being hungry). It wasn't the best toastie ever, but was better than you imagine it to be.

    Iced coffees are the best!!!!

    There was a chicken soup machine
    around here and it would always give you
    more soup than fit in the paper cup, so new
    people would constantly burn their fingers as
    the hot soup poured over the edges. Damn funny!

    I've always wanted to be able to get beer out of a soda vending machine.

    i was surprised to see cigarette veding machines on the street in europe.

    awhile ago, a new 'vending concept' was tried out near me at some amtrak stations.
    it was a great idea, basically quality prepared foods and convenience store items (including eggs, milk and bread) were dispensed.
    it didn't last.

    **the vending machine in the women's bathroom here at work dispenses tampons and condoms.

    When i was in Paris, at Gare De L Est there was what was basically a mini 7-Eleven but without the person on minimum wages. Was a giant vending machine selling groceries
  8. A shity but well loved (cus of its cheap drink) bar in London called bar180 has porn vending machines in the toilets, but due to shitty uk laws its not very hardcore…

    europe's subways are so much more hooked up than in the u.s.

    you'd think with our endless obsession with convenience and consumption, vending would be ubiquitous.

    hmm, the most x-treme ones i've ever seen are the kind that have buttitos, apples, cups of yogurt and shit, all the stuff is on a round thing and rotates when you press a button, so you can see it all. but, the only one i both knew and loved was the one in the medical complex building close to my house, it served 16 oz. cups of soda pop, the cup dropped down and the two parts of the soda would mix right there and flow into the cup. plus i think there was a button for ice.

    The states in general have pretty boring vending machines.
    The most sophisticated one I have ever seen was when I worked at a prepress firm. They had this huge refrigerated vending machine that had everything from apples to milk to all kinds of yogurts and sandwhiches. The interior was on a big revolving cylinder. Basically you lined up the product right in front of you and pulled the item out of a door directly in front of the item.


    one vending machine per every 23 people in japan.

    bathroom vending machines are a different story.

    Here you can get these massive ginseng doeses labeled as 'power pills'
    plus french ticklers, cock rings, and shit like that.
  13. Never really thought about vending machines like that, but yeah, here we got cigarette ones, candy ones, soft drink ones and the usualy bathroom ones with condoms. Guess the ticket ones at the stations count too, they are all hightech with touch screens and shit.
    The porn ones we have had for decades but there are many around any more, I remember bying dirty mags from them at a young age, ahahaha.
    Found this one with condoms and M&Ms in Dublin Airport.
