Japan Stole Our Vending Machines
One of the Top 10 reasons to go to Japan is the vending machines. They have vending machines for everything, from ice cream to women’s underwear. Such an idyllic paradise could have been ours. But alas, it is but a relic of that old 1950’s optimism. We, too, once had vending machines for everything, from books, to insurance, to suntan lotion. However, a series of social kerfuffles happened, so good by vending machines. Japan’s crime rate is much lower, compared to the United States. So having goods and assets just hanging out on random streets isn’t that big of a risk.
