Wow, so this is a marijuana vending machine. Its inventor and owner Vincent Mehdizadeh spent seven months to develop and patent the black, armored box, which he calls the “PVM,” or prescription vending machine. This is outstanding, if i was him i would find a way to attach an ATM cash machine too. Read up on it here, he has put a lot of work and thought into this and their are already two that have been functioning for months. These are for medical purposes though, so its not like there will be one installed at 7-11 because you would need a prescription, and i.d., and go through some fingerprint verification against the database. The Feds obviously aren’t happy about this, but the people have a strong voice, especially for the next eight years. Even still…  70’s, partly cloudy, and marijuana vending machines.. you gotta love California!

That is an artist rendering of Antilia, what is going to be the business center slash private residence of India’s richest person, business tycoon Mukesh Ambani. Ambani plans to house both his business and his family in the Antilia structure on 27 floors. Included will be six levels of parking with 168 parking spaces, four floors of livable space, a movie theater, two “health” floors complete with a gym and swimming pool, a couple of two story apartments for guest, and three helipads. Plus its looking like this is pretty much going to be a green building too. This is actually going to be quite a structure when its done. The building when it is complete will be serviced by 600 full time staffers. I think Ambani will be taking the no.1 spot in the, Most Expensive Cribs Edition on MTV since the total bill for this is going to be about $1b. The beauty of it is that his business will be right downstairs, so he really wont ever be late for work either.

A great story in Portfolio about the rich vs. poor dichotomy in India and how possibly this is stepping a little bit too far.

Clinton(Hillary) Just got closer

Well today, John Edwards is going to fallback and tap out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Mr. Edwards will make his announcement at a speech in New Orleans this afternoon. A spokesman said Edwards would not endorse another candidate today, but that he might in the future. It is kind of unclear who will benefit the most from this yet, but I actually think this helps the Clinton’s. The timing is good for Hillary because interestingly enough she has performed better in the debates, but it can be good for Obama because most of Mr. Edwards votes came int eh form of white males, a group that Obama reaches and who tend to vote for him in other areas than the south. Either way this Thursdays debate is going to be monumental to their causes before super Tuesday. If you ask me, they need to be on the same ticket anyway, Hillary for president, Obama as VP. She and Billy can run this thing for a few years while the heir apparent Obama is getting on the job training, whats wrong with that plan?

BTW, here is a cool little blurb about where Obama lived in the ’80’s, check it out

2007 was a record year for concerts, and with shows like this coming together 2008 will probably do the same. Touring is where the money is at, so get ready to see A-L-O-T of shows like this. I can’t wait. There are no dates scheduled yet, but keep the glowinethedarktour link in your favorites and check back for info. Let’s just hope they don’t get crazy with the ticket prices.
