Wild Card Where'd She Go?! If you're a female in Japan being pursued by a would-be attacker, what do you do? Scream as loud as you can? Run into a pachinko parlor, maybe? Thanks to the fashion industry, you now have a third option: Disguise yourself as a vending machine. A fashion designer in Tokyo has come up with a dress that unfolds into a giant sheet with an actual-size photo of a vending machine on it. Despite the fact that crime rates in Japan are actually declining, the vending machine dress is just one of several ridiculous solutions to dealing with the criminal element:
"Take the âmanhole bag,â a purse that can hide valuables by unfolding to look like a sewer cover. Lay it on the street with your wallet inside, and unwitting thieves are supposed to walk right by."I've never been to Japan, but apparently it's like living in a Road Runner cartoon.
