Panda Inside

(no subject)

Random Ideas:

1 - Vending machines that accept debit cards. I think it'd be a good idea.

2 - Gas stations with nothing but pre-pay pumps. cash/credit/debit of course. And a set of vending machines (beverages, snacks, coffee/tea/hot-chocolate/soup, and one of those ones with a rotating shelf and lunch stuff in it) where the building part would normally be. The vending stuff could be cash/debit also I suppose.

3 - More kinds of money as coins. Maybe with little holes so I can put them on spindles (in my pocket, on a belt, on a shelf, whatever. Or maybe string them on something like a necklace. Maybe use a long thin rod with something on one end instead of a coin jar.)

Anyone think these are good ideas, or am I completely nuts here? I bet #2 could save some real money for a gas station - way less operating expenses (less lights needed, no AC/heating, way fewer employees, less chance of shoplifting or people stealing gas, etc.).

Other random thought - I wonder where to get one of those belt-mounted things you put coins in and then hit a lever to push one out with? I haven't seen one for a long time. Maybe a chrome-plated one would be cool...

Yeah, I know, 3 updates in a short amount of time - more than I usually make in several days...

Anyways, found this -

The intro is a bit slow, but the cool part comes eventually. I wonder if I can get an mp3 of that?? (Actually, I bet I could, if I could find one of those programs that rips apart .swf files and stuffs all their pictures and sounds and stuff into a folder - one of those programs would be /really/ cool to have.
