Congratulations Skek. You whore, you.

Hey, Poof, I left you a new series over on Yammer. Didn't know if you had been over there since Cruzer opened this one.

Poof, When I was on vacation recently (out of the country) another boat passed by our boat. I was wearing one of my shirts (doesn't say woot on it) a person on the other boat yelled "Hey! a fellow wooter" wonder who it was?


Thanks SS for my new togs!

The US population is over 300 million.

Assuming an average of about 1000 shirts per week, they've sold 29,000 shirts. lets say 50,000, being generous. That is approximately 0.016 percent of the US population, assuming each sale was to a single person, and no-one bought more than one. So, about 16 people per 100,000 own a woot shirt, a generous estimate. Out of every 10,000 people you see, you might expect to see about 1-2 shirts. Assuming they only own 1 shirt of any kind.

Dr. J,
Only 1,000 per week? I thought most print runs were over 500 per day.

Buzz killer!

I haven't seen any Woot-shirts either - and if Dr. J's stats prove true, I probably never will.

My neighbor across the street woots, and whenever I see him, I rip open my shirt to show off my woot shirt (if I am wearing one). I expect he'll do the same when he has a woot shirt to show me.

...thanks for getting me into the random quotes thread. I now appear to be writing my comments in such a way so as to make them more euphamistic and stuff. What a fun development in the woot threads!

Jeez, and I was only talking about the real Woot shirts, the ones that have Woot printed on them.

My neighbor just said she's sponsor a trip for me and my daughters to go see the Hannah Montana 3-D movie this Friday when we're out of school and off of work.

This used to be my favorite neighbor. Now I know she secretly hates me.

That's really great. We only ever had one neighbor we were close to growing up. My parents are still friend's with him. Next year his daughter (who I used to babysit) is actually moving to the town I live in to attend college.

late one night, our doorbell rang, and it was one of the neighbors from around the corner who we waved to as we walked around the block. She just wanted us to know that our garage door was open, and normally at this time of night (around 11:00) it's closed and she wanted to make sure everything was okay.

How about that?

Similar thing happened in WA way back when except it was the police at 4am. Seems the newspaper guy was going through the neighborhood and saw it open and ws concerned. I appreciated the concern (there had been thefts around that time) but what a wakeup seeing cops at your door at 4am.

yesterday would have been a good time to buy sellout.woots for new ghost accounts-- one cent radios that look like ipods. But $5 shipping, so buy three and give them out to trick-or-treaters as a "trick." Or "treat."

Not worth the cost unless I could conveniently get 10-20 accounts that way.

As predicted, the chairman himself delivered perhaps the hearing’s most dramatic moment, at about 12:30 p.m., when Mr. Clemens was alleged to have tampered with an important witness, prompting his
attorneys to jump up and speak directly to the committee, something that’s not allowed.

yes, and at the end of the day, 1 or 10 additional votes probably won't make a difference. probably.

In clearly the most befuddling question of the morning so far, Representative William Lacy Clay, Democrat of Missouri, asked Mr. Clemens “what uniform you will wear into the Hall of Fame.”
Clemens hesitated and said with the merest of smiles he could muster. He said, “Can I state that I didn’t hear that question?”
“That is fine,” Clay said.

I'd like to think so, but I was about 10 votes shy of second for the -1 shirt... Those extra accounts could have come in handy then...

Why is that being heard by congress? What does the government got to do with sports?

(why is got the wrong word and why can't I figure out what word should be there?)

By the way, Star War III is on HBO, it just started.

Today Roger Clemens is saying he never did HGH or steroids. His ex-trainer is saying that he totally did. Congress is saying one of them must be lying. Each one says the other is!

Is this where one of them is revealed to be an android, and his logic circuits overheat and starts to smoke?
