  1. Reblogged this on johnrieber and commented:

    Quarter for your thoughts…


  2. burger one is the least impressive of the whole list – we had those on campus in the 80s!

    pizza is impressive, tho, as is mashed potatoes. but where are the USED PANTIES?! that is, surely, the one that jumps out at you most in japan….

    (even porn in machines there surprised me…as did batteries, VHS tapes, disposable cameras, and a whole bunch of other things. but used panties still wins.)


  3. i followed the link from your facebook page to this post, who wouldn’t click on the whiskey vending machine photo, it’s AWESOME! LOL I like the shoe vending machine one too.


    • Thanks! I think the vending machine disguise for women out alone in Tokyo is amazing as well…and of course, you can buy mashed potatoes as well…i think everything is vend-able! Thanks for commenting!
