Walking around looking for curiousness is important to me. How else, for example, would I find such things as the new pizza vending machines sprouting outside the more dubious 24/7 convenience stores of this great city?
For only £4 you can be treated to a 'fresh baked' pizza within 90 seconds. Examining the machine close-up it is clear that it is large enough to accommodate an entire human being, microwave oven and supply of frozen pizzas. I hung around my nearest installation in a suspicious manner for some time yesterday, waiting to see if an illegal immigrant would pop out at some point for a toilet or cigarette break, but to no avail. Maybe they only employ non-smokers who pee inside the machine? Actually, the machines are heavily padlocked so I guess they shut the guys inside. Well, at least they won't starve to death and a lot of them sleep on the floor at work to save money to send home anyway ...
