    They have one that does fries, burger in a bun, pizzas and IIRC omelettes in Frimley Park hospital.

    ...because they need more patients?

    Seriously - I saw one of these suckers on a campsite in NZ and of course, with my horrible vending machine addiction I paid $2 NZD for the priviledge of watching the machine spit out something resembling the afterbirth of a whelk doused in twice the lethal dosage of salt (damn, knew I shouldn't have had seconds!)

    I dread to think what a vending machine burger looks like. But alas, we are NOTHING compared to the Japanese who even have porn / used schoolgirl knicker vending machines, I kid you not.

    Heh, can you imagine how long an alcohol vending machine would last over here before some Chav came along with a lorry and took it away?

    15 seconds.

    Those vending machine chips ain't all bad. If you are pissed out of your face, naturaly.

    But a fishing hook vending machine? That's even more fucked up then used panties. At least I can see the point of those.

    The used knicker vending machines eventually got shut down - under an obscure piece of law which classifes used knickers as antiques :)

    But yes, every street in Japan is full of vending machines for pretty much everything. It's bloody useful actually - hot and cold drinks, snacks, toileteries, booze, change of boxer shorts - basically all the things you might concievably need at some godforsaken hour of the night when no shops are open :)

    Did you use one in an effort to clear the beer smell from your breath so the boss wouldn't find out you'd had a couple at the pub at lunchtime?

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Heh, glad it's not just me then.

    Dammit, the amount of in-game cash I used to spend in Shenmue on the various vending machines, clogging up my inventory with totally useless sonic toys. Mind you our local cinema does a good line in similar machines now...some very cool videogame characters in one of 'em.

    A mate of mine who moved in down the road a while back is getting his folks to ship him his DC and Shenmue to him soon and he keeps going on about it and we're thinking of swapping for while so I can see what all the fuss is about.

    Any cop?

    In my experience it's near impossible to wear girls pants anyway, as they're not sufficiently equipped to... you know... contain...

    Well I had to, didn't I. I am a sucker for vending machines of any type and I was always seeing those damned chewable toothbrush machines in motorway service stations...You know the ones - "Your teeth feel as clean as if you'd brushed with a brush!" - Sounded like a great idea to me, something for the bone idle first thing in the morning - shove the thing in your gob and chew until you caint'st chew nay more! I bought one and shoved it in the pocket of my jacket and completely forgot about it until...

    Having had a garlic breath-laden lunch I figured that I'd use the bloody thing (well it did cost £3, I mean it would've been cheaper to accost a passing dachsund and get the bloody thing to lick my teeth clean but what can ya do in a dachsund-free county like Oxfordshite). Dug the thing out, and discretely went to the gents to give the thing a good chew whilst sitting on the can (why do people call the loo "the can" ?)

    One misplaced filling later, I'm left with the deepening sense of "I really shouldn't have done that, should I?"

    Peej


    I had no idea they charged that much in the vending machines if you are talking about fuzzy brushes! I did receive one email from someone that had paid £2 on a motorway and only received one when there should have been two but I am surprised to hear about your misplaced filling. Obviously on the moderngent site there is a post & packing charge but most people buy enough to negate that.

    Anyway, you feel hard done by, I have just paid 49p for a lemon and was so gobsmacked I couldn’t say anything. That has to be the most expensive lemon surely?

    I saw in Boots today a packet of tooth wipes - like baby wipes but they come in packs of ten and are minty-flavoured. I think they were a couple of quid. I thought they were weird, but those little chewy brushes are just daft :)

    A necro-bump spam about minty mouth spray. Whatever next?

    I like the fact the post from 2005 a few posts up appears to be a spammer, or at very least a planet - but we had so few of them back then that if they could at least spell, we'd leave them there.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Oh yeah, look at that. I can't be arsed logging in to the mod tools for an 8 year old spammer though. Shocking quality of moderation back then :)
