Uncanny Factoid: Got Crabs? Chinese Do! (3 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Random » Uncanny factoid   27 Oct 2010   / 5446 views

No? Well you can throw in some yen and get some in a new vending machine that the Chinese have created.

 

These crazy vending machines are stocked with more than junk food and diet drinks.  They offer live hairy Shanghai crabs. The crabs are stored in the machine at 41F 5C which keeps them alive and immobile. The machine states that if you find a dead crab after your purchase they will give you 3 crabs for the mistake.

 

This craze is taking China by storm and even though statistics state that the live hairy Shanghai crab is becoming overfished in the Yangtze river, it isn’t’ stopping the wild vending machines from dispensing these hairy little guys to hundreds  of happy consumers daily.

Whats next to be thrown in a vending machine? Live cows?

Learn Something:  Did you know that it is generally illegal to import, transport, or possess live Chinese mitten crabs in the United States? The fear is that they will become released into open waters and competes with the local species of crab.

It's a Japanese TV report from China, idiot. Listen to the people they interview, and last time i checked the Japanese don't have Chairman Mao on their money

most probably an identical specie. if they were the genuine shanghai crabs, the vending machine would be carried away in a small truck with the quickness.

A factoid is "fact-like", just like a humanoid is "human-like". Please, for the love of god, just start calling them "Facts".
