Has anyone here in the US tried the used panties idea? I cannot imagine that going over well with the various health boards. Also - disgusting!

If for that (the car, not the panties). Buying a car and dealing with the salespeople is farking torture.

I'm for that, that is.

I like the idea of the car vending machine, but can I combine the car and whiskey vending options?

Only if it drops the smartcar down through a series of amusing steps, finally putting it in the pickup slot with a metal door. Otherwise, it's just not going to feel appropriate.

Endive Wombat: the used panties idea

Actually, it's pretty easy to make your own.

Except those machines don't actually sell cars. I've been using the car2go service, (which uses smartcars), for the past week. It's even better than a vending machine in my mind.

Poorly researched 'article'. I got chicken fingers and fries from a vending machine at a rest stop near Binghamton, probably about 10 years ago.

And the Smart car machine is clearly an advertising installation made to look like a vending machine, and not a working automobile dispenser.

I could use a Whiskey and M&M machine just about right now.

I actually like dealing with salespeople when I'm making a large purchase. I've developed that friendly, yet persistent, attitude that gets me the best deals. Patience and a smile will get you far.

Then you'll be cooking with gas!

Not really a vending machine, as I recall.

And why would anybody buy one of these? It's half the size of a compact with worse gas mileage.
