Does anyone know why I would have to sign for my package? The ticket they left me said I have to sign for it, I guess that's why they didn't just leave it for me.



I have received 4 Bags of Crap. Two of them I signed for, two I didn't. I'm not sure why.

If you don't report the weight of your Big o' Cosmos when reporting its contents, I will come to your house and steal your cat.

No, I'm just joking. But, seriously, would it kill you?

Ugh, my bag just lost some weight on a new scan.

Went from 7.1 lbs from first scan, and now it's down to 6.3 lbs.


Dimensions also changed. Originally was listed as 13" cubed. It is now 24.2 in. x 12.7 in. x 12.7 in.

My bag gained weight! from 4.9 to 5.2.
It is still scheduled for the 24th and it is finally in NJ. If lucky it could arrive tomorrow.

On my first bag, I guess somebody in the post office wanted to look productive to their supervisor and posted that it was delivered 1 day before it arrived. Which prompted me to freak out, thought it got stolen or delivered to the wrong address.

Pinged from Newark NJ, to Fort Worth Texas.

As a hitchhiker, somebody help me out. Once tracking says that a package has arrived at a FedEx SmartPost Facility in your town, how long are you looking at for your package to arrive? Mine made it to the facility last Friday(5/20) and it's status hasn't changed since. I know it has to be transferred to the post office, but hoping I might get it tomorrow. Just wanted to know if your wisdom might either keep me from waiting at the door all day or justify it. FYI, my Big o' Cosmos's weight is 3.3lbs and I haven't seen a lot of the smaller ones posted so far -- sad it looks like I'm not getting a Batman copter, but hope I get something interesting. Thanks in advance.

Mine got to Houston on the 20th and hung out for a while. It left Houston today (22nd) and should be in Austin in time for a Monday??? delivery. So, sometimes it'll hang out in the SmartPost facility for a while.

I've always received it within a couple of days of hitting the SmartPost facility. This time, I'm not so sure, mostly because we had a lot of tornadoes near the facility.

Now that Stumpy has solved the non-charging Batman problem, anybody got a fix for the non-charging Motor Trend LED multi-function emergency hazard, flashlight, and area light with built-in usb power port thing that I would really like to be able to take on camping trips? It will not charge in the house via 110 volt or in the car via 12 volt. Sadness is slowly enveloping my need for portable light and usb power.

Stumpy, how about a shot at another quality post?

The bags of Texas air are a kind of over-sized bubble wrap intended to cushion the contents of your box of carubundum. They can also be used as a pillow or a device to scare the crap out of someone by stomping on them thus causing them to explode loudly. Oh, and what is good about them is the fact that they contain the best smelling air in all of airdom, Texas air.

if you puncture it, and drink the sweet sweet texas air, you will either turn into an Austin Hipster, a Dallas Cowboy, or A Texarkana hick(I've never been to Texarkana, but i like saying the city name.)

Give it a try and report back

I guess the entire western half of the state doesn't exist? I know it's a lot of wide-open nuthin', but the state doesn't end in Austin.

P.S. For who ever was taking cats, I have three you can have.....I think they are plotting to take over the world.

The short answer is: 1 to 5 days depending on how busy your post office is. The long answer can be found in the last section of my SmartPost primer

1 hot pink laptop cooler
1 Knight Flight Batman
1 3-pack of PetZoom brushes, I have a dog so this works out well

and

1 IRIScan portable light compact USB scanner. The box was open, and the scanner itself was wrapped in brown paper and has a return address sticker. So, Robert from CA, it appears I received your scanner!

I was amazed to see just how quickly mine got to Charlotte (2 days!! express lane, all the way, fastest yet) and since the wee hours of Saturday morning, it's "Departed FedEx Location" with the shipping info sent to the PO....in Winston-Salem, about 90 minutes away....I was hopeful for delivery today....maybe it will happen so, and the USPS info just hasn't caught up yet?

Seems like everyone is getting the same thing. Also thought you use to get 3 items per Big o' Cosmos. So shouldnt we be getting 9 items?

Got my Big o' Cosmos today.

Pkg: 5.8lbs

Mine consisted of

1 - Heatshift Laptop cooler
1 - Knight Flight Batman
1 - Pkg Pet Zoom brushes
1 - Personal Wifi Hotspot

if 1 Big o' Cosmos = 1Bag + 3Craps, then 1 Big o' Cosmos = 9 craps

that math seems right to me too.

You also used to have to order 3 instead of just ordering 1.

But, it's used to be one crap for each item ordered plus a bag. Now, it's 3 craps for each order (with a max quantity of 1). So, anything above 3 is still lagniappe.
