(NY Post) Looks like Rockefeller Center wants to cater to shoppers who are in a hurry.
Six vending machines have recently landed on the concourse under the famed tourist Mecca — and they spit out everything from chicken pesto sandwiches and ready-to-eat cookie dough to a Brooks Brothers shirt, a shaving kit and an $800 diamond engagement ring.
The Vend, as it’s called by its creator and landlord, Tishman Speyer, has been attracting curious — and skeptical — passersby since it quietly opened in beta mode on the underground shopping concourse a few weeks ago.
Or airports? You sit next to the man of your dreams on a long flight and upon landing, he can show you that he will love you tomorrow. The business model is big, I tell you. LSP & WSF – business opportunity.
What do you do when you can’t be a varsity player in high school? You declare yourself a man/boy trapped in a woman’s body. And because the education industry is packed full of politically correct, progressive people, they accept your decision for the day or for the track season and you compete against the women and win the meets. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of schools that only want to chalk up a win for the women’s team. But eventually, as has been pointed out on this blog and elsewhere, you will only have third string men competing against third string men on women’s teams. And the guys can shower in the women’s locker rooms because they’re really women, after all.
We all know that hurricanes are caused by climate change and ultimately, by Donald J. Trump. It’s settled science. They were caused by global warming before that the but never by Barack Obama. Just review the news of his 8 years in office.
Politicians tell us repeatedly that the world will end in 12 years because of the weather. It’s a sure bet, more settled science. At the same time those scientists, who can predict the weather in 12 years for a certainty, can’t tell you where the hurricane is going.
Beans – Well, how much of Okobungo’s money is located in off-shore accounts set up during his World Apology Tour? Or how much of the Clinton Warchest was also funded by offshore accounts?
Then again, the Clintons charged Pay to Play to a lot of ChiComs during their tenure in the White House.
Pay to play is the name of the game in big political circles. It isn’t any different now than during Ancient Rome during the rule of the Caesars – or any other time. Donkeys and elephants wrap themselves in virtue, but that’s how it works.
Since you have tornadoes in your neighborhood, I expect that you haven’t put a sign up prohibiting them. It’s a progressive thing to do. Mount them under the gun free zone and you won’t be bothered again. If you don’t believe me, ask Pelosi or AOC.
Jim – I’m sure that a sign would work if you hung it somewhere in Kansas where the tornadoes were vexing. Trailer parks seem to attract them like honey attracts a bear. Posting signs in businesses keeps away shoplifters and signs warning illegal aliens to turn back at the fence strikes terror in their immigrant hearts.
Fredd said – It’s a relief to know that only Democrats engage in this sleaze and that my beloved Republicans are clean and pure as the wind driven snow.
Rep. Omar (D-MI) has problems brewing as even her own party would like to see her leave the House and the Country forever. Of course you could chalk it up to islamophobia. Sure she used campaign funds to pay for the guy who was servicing her while she was married to her brother, but I say – “picky-picky-picky”
St. Ronald and St. Donald were relatively clean. At least as clean as yellow snow, but not filthy like snow with a lot of coal dust on and in it. I don’t know how you can remain in politics and clean. I liked Duncan Hunter (R-CS) from San Diego and he’s headed for the Big House, so oops, LL.
I've always enjoyed the Rockefeller Center and now I like it even more!
But down to business. You sink a useless LCS in the Potomac, set up a "diamond" vending machine in the wreck and sell dive time for "lucky lovers."
Benefit all 'round.
I found my all time favorite vending machines when I was stationed in Germany back in '71. You put a single mark, worth about 34¢, into the machine and pulled out a bottle of beer. Most civilized.
Don't trust me on marketing schemes. Lived in the Seattle area for 18 years during the start of the espresso craze. Used my fine tuned business skills to analyse the coffee biz. Concluded it was a fad and the business model didn't pencil.
As to a "No Tornado Zone" sign, well, why? As a grumpy conservative I enjoy nature as it is. Weather, temp rises, temp drops, snow in Cape Canaveral area (saw it in 1973, really, didn't stick, but it was snow…)
Does that mean I let Mother Nature gnaw my arm off via alligator, panther, bear, wolf, whatever.
I fully understand and support Nature kicking us in our collective balls. Because it's nature. Duh.
But, yes, if I had enough dough I'd live in a converted missile base somewhere, only possibly losing to black mold, meteor strike, rapid glacierization, heat death of the universe etc.
There is a reason we called them 'weatherguessers'… That hurricane is going to go where it wants to… Models be damned…
Nothing to get me to New York.
I did have a good chuckle at the last two though.
No. How cheap and nasty. Vegas maybe.
An emergency clown nose vending machine? Absolute winner!
Dam. A branch of the LSP clan thought cars wouldn't catch on in Texas and invested heavily in burros.
We could team up as a "negative interest" consultancy.
(a) If it's $800, it isn't a diamond ring… when they're that small they're called "accents". Or possibly "file material". It might be an engagement ring, but only if your bride-to-be is exceedingly understanding and forgiving.
(b) The obvious checkmate would be the "Climate Change Free Zone" sign.

WSF – I believe someone said of LBJ that he went to Washington to do good, and did very well. Seems to be the name of the game.
