Touch of Reality

Advertising has accustomed us to disappointment. The picture doesn't always reflect reality. fastfoodreal   Although the optimists among us hope otherwise, we know that the picture on the box is a "serving suggestion.

When it's a manufactured product, you might expect a photograph of the actual item, possibly even shown in use. insta-pool23But like a Whopper, the actual product might not resemble the picture. pool-actual At least the people are real. pool-touchmom As Heisenberg taught us, the more precisely we can identify the subject, the less certain we are of its location. pool-badtouch It looks like the boys are having a good time. But we're not going to be fooled by the picture on the box and run out and buy one of these. Elmo McQueen

The Rise Of The Machines

by on Jan.29, 2012, under Consumer, Food, History, Technology, Toys

From ancient Greece, when Hero invented a machine to vend holy water in Egyptian temples, to the first English machines that sold postcards and books, and the first vending machines in the United States that dispensed gum, modern automated vendors sell almost any consumer product. People embraced the idea of cheap, fast transactions that eliminated the need for clerks, cashiers, and lines. Merchants love them because they can make money 24 hours a day. Sometimes it seems like you can hardly look around in public without seeing one. You can buy all kinds of food well beyond what the candy, snack, and soft drink vendors have to offer. For a hot meal on the go, there's made on site, fresh baked pizza. If you want to cook your own, but just need a few fresh ingredients, you can buy fresh eggs from a nearby farm. You can even pretend you've spent a day on the water, and fish for your dinner. If it's not food you're looking for, maybe its entertainment. You can buy music by the song. You can buy music in volume. If you're underdressed, there are machines that sell shoes, socks, board shorts, and jeans. There are even vending machines for very specific requirements -- like the one that sells used girls' panties in Japan. The machines, and what they contain, keep getting bigger and bigger.

But nothing else reaches the scale of this new automated product delivery system.

Located in Wolfsburg, Germany, these 200 foot tall glass towers contain the merchandise. Each one holds up to 400 items. Every slot is big enough for a car.

That's what Volkswagen stocks them with. Every day, around 600 people come by to pay for their purchase and get a new car.

The cars are built at an adjacent plant, and transported by conveyer belt to the base of a tower, where they are lifted into position at around 6 feet a second by a robotic arm.

After you've inserted the proper coins, you can watch your car be picked from its slot, and rolled along a track to the Autostadt Customer Center.

When cigarette and beer vending machines were more popular, it was hard to prevent underage people from taking advantage. Wc wonder how Volkswagen will solve the problem when their car vending machines are more widespread.

And what if you don't have the right currency?

Auto Erotic Fixation

by on Nov.06, 2010, under Culture, Drugs, Education, Family, Kids, Recreation

I'm in love with my car, got a feel for my automobile. -- Queen Since the first motorized vehicles were produced, men have had a love affair with their cars. Cars were curvaceous and sexy.

They appeal to the opposite sex.

For some people its the love of a lifetime.

Some may even develop lifelong driving habits early.

As childish innocence turns to adolescence, styles may change but the object of affection remains the same. In the 1950's it was every adolescent's dream to lose his subcompact toy and get a full-size woody.

Many of the cars were purchased with money from parents so less well-endowed kids got woodies that weren't much bigger than the toy of their youth.

Auto eroticism had really taken over the culture.

Got a grip on your boy racer roll bar, what a thrill when your radials squeal.

But somewhere along the line, the message was garbled. Blame it on high gas prices, or the lack of jobs for kids. Auto-eroticism has turned into a deadly thrill.

If you haven't heard of this popular teen sport, Auto-erotic asphyxiation (AEA) is the practice of cutting off the blood supply to the brain through self-applied suffocation methods while masturbating.By limiting the blood supply to the brain, AEA can induce cerebral anoxia, a deficiency of oxygen in the brain.Oxygen deficiency in the brain is thought to intensify sensations, producing feelings of giddiness, lightheadedness, or exhilaration that can heighten the orgasmic experience.

It probably came from the observation that men executed by hanging often got an erection and sometimes ejaculated. It's described in detail in the Marquis de Sade's Justine and is mentioned in Beckett's Waiting for Godot. It's part of actor Keith Carradine's legacy. Some adolescent deaths blamed on suicide might really have been accidental.

"Auto-erotic asphyxiation" sounds awfully clinical, so kids have adopted a lot of euphemisms. It's also known as "the choking game", "the fainting game", "riding a rocket", "flat liner", "space monkey", and many other names.

You can play alone or with a friend. The idea is to limit oxygen to the brain. As an extra bonus, pressing against the cartoid artery causes vasodilation and significantly speeds up the effect.

A Center for Disease Control report describes the results of an analysis of death certificates, which identified 82 probable choking-game deaths among youths aged 6--19 years, during 1995--2007. Seventy-one (86.6%) of the decedents were male, and the mean age was 13.3 years.

There is no correlation between the choking game and use of recreational drugs. Most of the fatalities occurred while an adult was at home. Many of the victims are bright, involved, popular kids doing well in school. Adolescents are auto-erotic by nature. That's why they sometimes have to keep a textbook in front of them when they're asked to get up in class, or talk to a girl, or breathe. They make condoms for kids, but not Viagra. They don't need it. Asphyxiation will not enhance your sexual experience, and it can have deleterious side effects.

The only auto-erotica that should be found hanging is an air freshener.

Told my girl I'll have to forget her Rather buy me a new carburetor So she made tracks sayin This is the end now Cars don't talk back They're just four wheeled friends now http://chokinggame.net/
