Philosophical muti-storey car park ticket machine



The machine displaying this is near the foot of Techno Bridge, incidentally. (Greenside Place has a handy car park for Saturday shopping in the New Town).

Brilliant. I feel better about the world now.

I love it. Brings back memories of the self-referential driving game in Kinross service station, which made such an impression on us all those years ago.

can you elaborate tom? it rings a most definite bell, but can't remember the manner of the game's self referentiality...

The racing car you drove had a Sonic the Hedgehog toy hanging from the mirror.

So, not exactly self-referential, but it showed highly sophisticated levels of awareness and post-modern pranksterism. At the time, we were wildly impressed.

Ah yes. The innocence of those times...
