I know it doesn't look like much, but you are looking at the World's Fastest Pop Machine. For real. You can kind of see a few of the many lawn mowers that surround this beauty. I'm pretty sure the pop machine is located at a lawn mower repair shop, but we've always referred to it as the lawn mower graveyard.
I took this picture last spring when my brother, Rob, was visiting. I don't know how we'd neglected to take him to this tourist attraction on his past visits, but we didn't make that mistake again. Here's how it works:
- Put your money in the machine (75 cents).
- Put one hand behind your back.
- Make your selection and try to catch the soda with the same hand.
I'm telling you, this machine can read your mind. I don't think any of us have actually accomplished the goal because as soon as you make your selection, the pop is there.
The teenagers simply call it "World's Fastest," and everyone knows exactly what they're talking about. It's only about a 15-20 minute drive from my house so the kids and their friends have been known to head over after play practices, sporting events, concerts, etc.
You may be rolling your eyes, but this is really a thing. Google it. Just search for "World's fastest pop machine." See?
Maybe I should have blogged about this sooner. This is a sure-fire way to get more family and friends to visit! You know you want to! :)
