Scenic View Tele-Photo

Repurposing those tourist telescopes

1) Take a photo kiosk
2) Strip it down to bare functionality
3) Encase it in one of those $.25USD scenic view telescopes
4) Charge people $1 for a photo of whatever they can see
6) Remove money and add film periodically

This, in conjunction with its related idea, might make a new business model for Polaroid. It would certainly do wonders for the advancement of bubblegum- and scratch-resistant lenses.

       5) Warn everyone living within line-of-sight of the kiosk to always keep their curtains drawn.
