Just like in video games lol. It should also sell potions!

AI image recognition for age verification.

Famously 100% accurate. Hence why even humans who need to verify age look at the birth date on your driver’s license.

I hate it here.

America: You can’t have free health because that’s socialism but you can replenish your Glock 9 stock because FURDUM!!!

Well, an ability to buy stuff for a gun does not exclude the possibility to have an affordable healthcare. US does not have affordable one, but I live in a country with “free” healthcare and it is so shitty that I and my family need to go to private doctors anyway 90% of cases. We need to pay twice: one for the “free” healthcare in taxes and the second time at the private doctor. Admitedly, less fucked up than in US, but this still fucking sucks.

THIS. Sometimes, a silly vending machine in Alabama is just a vending machine in Alabama, not the summation of what you think is wrong with other peoples’ politics.

That’s a good deal on ice.

isolatedscotch ,

in what universe is 1.99 a good deal on ice, get some tap water and freeze it

verity_kindle ,

My freezer is tiny. Check your freezer size privilege, man! ;)

isolatedscotch ,

well wouldn’t you need a freezer to store that ice anyways if there is some left?

beeb ,

Welp, no place in the freezer, guess I’ll need to have another margarita!

verity_kindle ,

This is la via.

verity_kindle ,

No, I’m American. Every drink is 64 oz and I need 5 kilos of ice for one batch of homebrew beer.

Are you cold crashing when you brew? I brew beer but haven’t cold crashed a batch yet. Is there a difference in the taste?

verity_kindle ,

So far, I always cold crash to get the impurities/ carbohydrates to fall out of the solution and leave a less hazy wort. I like a gnarly trub in my kettle, before I start transferring to the ale pail/ bucket fermenter. So, I don’t know what a beer would taste like without it. I’ve only brewed ales and lambics so far.

fruitycoder ,

Not all tap water is good to drink. Some people wells or some city water is bad.

Personally I only buy it if the power is out (to help pack the fridge and freezer) or road trips / camping. Where yes is could try to store a coolers worth of ice in my freezer but its just not worth it

verity_kindle ,

Thank you! I feel SEEN. ya leave nice fresh ice in the freezer long enough, it gets funky, especially if it’s stored with other food.

The US has moved another step towards being an actual video game

circasurvivor ,

Nah, I wouldn’t even play a video game this bad… but you’re right, there’s been a lot of “GTA Online energy” to it recently though.

FluffyPotato ,

Nah, in GTA you have to buy your ammo from a store. This is Bioshock and Borderlands energy.

Mango ,

Why worry about accuracy when you can just fire more bullets!?

KillingTimeItself ,

how they work? Probably like any other vending machine?

Bullets aren’t all that volatile.

I’m surprised they’re not in the elementary schools.

Swarfega ,

Don’t give them ideas

iheartneopets ,

We have them in Oklahoma, too, now

Freefall ,

The point of vending machines is convenience of getting something cold on the go (or snacks, but a shelf works for those too)…this solved a problem no one had to make a statement no one cares about…GJ?

kerrigan778 ,

That’s where you’re wrong though, it’s a statement a lot of really weird people give a massive shit about.

Freefall ,

Ah yes, the conservative Screeching Minority(I believe in bizzaro-land they call themselves the silent majority).

Piemanding ,

My conservative friend sure believes he is.

I’m seriously trying to find a use case for these things. If you’re prepping for the apocalypse or stockpiling, you’ll buy ammo in bulk from a store. If you’re going hunting, you probably have a stock of ammo, and if not you’ll probably buy a few boxes from the store. And it’s not like Walmart closes, so you can even get it at 2am. What niche are these supposed to serve?

verity_kindle ,

Lots of rural Walmarts close at night now, for a variety of reasons, such as to cut costs, reduce shoplifting. Ours recently got rid of their plastic handbaskets because too many were being stolen. Not all flyover country has the same set of troubles. This is one small dataset I’m offering, I realize, but we’re not that different from people in urban areas.
