|The ATM bone yard, Nonthaburi|
ATM machines in Thailand get not only the usual use and abuse they do anywhere else but are also victims of heat, humidity and that good old Thai technology. It's only natural that they, too, expire - and while they're not able to amble off into the jungle it stands to reason that they have to go somewhere.
From my hotel window I could see one such bone yard in Nonthaburi. A few of these appeared to be under some repair, but from their exposure out in the sun and rain I'd guess most of these were on their last legs, so to speak; harvested for salvageable parts, at best.
I checked the lot when I'd pass by my window over the days I was there, and while I did see a screened canopy put into place it was much like the old myth: every day there were a few more, and while you saw them come in, you never saw any go out.
If machines have souls, could this lot also be haunted? I wanted to ask my friend, but ghosts are a topic not usually welcome with him. I guess it'll have to remain a mystery.
