7) Mitten Crab Vending Machine
Cruelly weird, weirdly cruel, China’s mitten crab vending machines take the buying and selling of fresh seafood to another plane of crazy. Chilled alive at 41 °F, the cold temperature keeps the crabs in a state of hibernation which maintains their freshness. And as an added incentive to frequent their machines, the company promises to compensate customers with three free crabs should they receive a dead one (and no cheating the warranty!).
