I Dropped My Jaw in Las Vegas

Talk about Las Vegas, and images of sexily clad croupiers, sexily clad *ahem* "entertainment personnel" and sexily clad desperate housewives come to mind. Well, to my sexily clad mind, anyway. Found out that the Stratosphere, which is where we were staying for one night, had an adults-only, tops-optional swimming pool. Getting better and better! :D

But, honestly speaking, the eye-candy was a little lacking. The croupiers were all totally covered up. Didn't see any "entertainment personnel" possibly because we only went for one show, and totally avoided the clubbing scene. It was too cold for scanty clothes, and the adults-only pool only had plenty of topless guys. (I could totally imagine all the eyeballs hidden behind the sunglasses swivel towards Yi Lin when we got to the pool, haha)

So, only 3 things really made my jaw drop in Las Vegas. Yi Lin has already written about the Fountains at Bellagio, and the Cirque du Soleil performance, O. That leaves me to write about the iPod Vending Maching (iPVM).

A vending machine for iPods! What!? *Jaw drop*

In addition to the usual display case where you can see the items you're buying, there is also a console on the right of the machine, where you can check on the product features of the items. Payment is all by credit card here, so that is where you swipe your card too.

Well, the iPVM probably only uses the iPod brand name to attract MacHeads like me. Apple products comprise of only slightly less than half of the merchandise offered. The other products offered here include PSP games and other accessories.

Buy a PSP, buy God of War - Chains of Olympus. All your entertainment needs satisfied.

It just opens the mind up to all the possibilities of a simple vending machine, doesn't it? Put it in a Singaporean context, can you imagine parents buying past years' test/exam papers for their kids from a vending machine in a nearby MRT station?
