Jason Haley got a pic of the infamous Live Bait Machine. awesome! i had never seen one of these things before, but this one was along the way on my drive to/from work. did a triple-take when i 1st noticed it, and then started asking around. my boss came up with the best theory, that it is for the hardcore fisherman to get their bait before the store opens.
i was dying to know what was inside too. my theory was that it was a perfect little biosphere. all it had inside was water, dirt, some plants, and creatures of the bait derivative. of course sunlight was needed, like the self contained ecospheres. it had sensors and such to create the proper amount of bait. if the bait was not purchased, then the creatures would die and become part of the food chain. then nobody would ever have to come and restock the machine ... it would just continue on indefinitely. the only problem would be if the bait evolved ...
