Thank you Cait.

This video is a great example which displays how little most of us know about the amusement and vending industry in other regions of the world. I admit to being very North American based in my knowledge of coin-op like many of you, yet there is quite a bit of history and divesity when you take a closer look around the globe. Nuts I tell ya, just nuts.

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more no less. Toujours a 10 machines, pas moins pas plus.
Une règle suivi gueri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.

I've done a lot of research on Japanese coin-op and have lately been digging a lot of European coin-op. But dang I can't say I recommend getting in to it because shipping stuff across the ocean is ridiculous, and finding stuff from other continents in North America is like a needle in a haystack.
but oh man, I have quite the wishlist of machines from across Europe!
