Frank Rizzo - 2009-11-03 the "hamburger" totally came out of the "vending machine"
Goofy Gorilla - 2009-11-03 I guess Japanese people really don't like talking to each other.
Sudan no1 - 2009-11-03 they don't. every social interaction is a dance with disaster and shame.
Smellvin - 2009-11-03 I was just thinking this is a great idea to avoid having to deal with semi-retarded customers.
fluffy - 2009-11-03 He is providing a service, a gimmick, and a scathing commentary on Japan's vending machine culture ALL IN ONE.
a flaming monkey - 2009-11-03 It's funny though... when I was in Japan I never saw a single local person use a vending machine...
But yeah, they are everywhere. There was even one on top of Mount Fuji which dispensed hot coffee. 450 yen per can.
fluffy - 2009-11-03 Yeah when I went there a couple years ago the only people I saw using vending machines were other dumb Americans like me. I think it is their way of attracting tourists.
Longshot- - 2009-11-03 Back when I was in Japan in 2003 I found a vending machine that dispensed BEER! The beer was horrible, but I'll treasure the experience.
MrBuddy - 2009-11-04 I never see people in the US using vending machines either. I think you have to be at the right place at the right time.
Hooker - 2009-11-03 I would totally order the hamburger and then enter the store to sit down at eat it.
