My Big O' Cosmos left Dallas at 2:24 AM, and hasn't had an update since. That must be one tired FedEx driver...

I haven't gotten a newsletter. Other than signing up is there some trick I don't know about?

thumperchick wrote:Woot sent out a newsletter before the woot-off (I usually get my newsletters the day before a woot-off) and had a little blurb about how one of the guys in the office made 3 giant wooden woot monkeys. You can pose with your face in the woot monkey face spot. One went on tour, another is at woot HQ, and one will go to a Big o' Cosmos - according to the blurb. I's post it... but I deleted it after I read it. Sorry.

Got my Big o' Cosmos today! My box was 1.8 lbs.

It contained:

Red White and Blue woot sweatbands (just in time for the 4th of July)

UV toothbrush sanitizer thing

a polkadotted bag

a Fact or Crap Dare travel game

I know what you're thinking... "That is a pretty crappy Big o' Cosmos" WELL Negative Nancy, think of it like this; I got crap so that others may get crappy gold.

This is charitable work I am doing, and let me tell you twice a day when I brush my teeth with my sanitized toothbrush I will be thinking of all the more fortunate wooters out there and it will bring a bacteria-free smile to my face knowing that my crap paved the way for others to receive 28 aqua globes and 2008 desk calendars.

And that, my friends, is what BoCs are all about.

Being in Dallas does have advantages, like getting shipments from woot pretty quick. I think I got the standard stuff:

1 Gwen's Nest recycled bag
1 Woot headband and wristbands (headband #333)
1 UV Toothbrush sanitizer
1 InCharge Wii battery (no charger)

Just received mine too!

Contents are:
Woot headband and wristbands (number 1925)
1 recycled tote bag
1 UV toothbrush sanitizer
1 "Fact or Crap" Truth or Dare game

My first bag and I have to say, I think it is great. Sure I would love a letter but this is still fun!

I am super excited about the possibility of receiving the Woot! headband set. That would certainly be my most coveted item from all the Big o' Cosmos's I've been lucky enough to receive.

Just got mine!


Dyna-Flex... thing. I have no idea what this is.
"Zero Gravity Ball" - seems to be a giant hollow bouncy ball - says 75 ft on it, I guess that's how high it can go.
The same reusable bag everyone else seems to be getting.
iPad sleeve (I *JUST* broke down and finally eBayed the Smart Cover... at least I got a good deal on it)
Woot head and wristbands - branded with #2919
UV Toothbrush Sanitizer

All in all, a decent haul. I love the Woot-branded head and wristbands since i missed out on the bucket a while back.

And the LORD said unto the chicken: "Go ye forth, and cross the road". And the chicken did go forth to cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

The gyroscope is probably one you hold in your hand and it strengthens your wrist with resistance from the gyro.

Thanks for the feedback regarding the headbands!

Yes, as our community has accurately speculated, we created a small batch of limited edition, red, white and blue headband/wristband sets that we are really excited about. Each headband was diligently embroidered (in a small business here in the US) with a number ranging 1 to 3000, making each one truly one-of-a-kind. (Caveat emptor; because they are scarce there is no guarantee that everyone will receive one.) They are red white and blue, just in time for the 4th of July of course.

99.9% of them were randomly allocated. I did however give #2004 to Snapster, for two reasons. First, because Woot.com was launched in July of 2004. Also because without him, none of us would be here, so there's that.

Everyone here is looking forward to seeing pictures of people rocking the limited edition set! I have that crappy pocket watch (mentioned earlier) to send to someone that posts a picture that catches my eye.

That is correct. There should be a red string that fits in a hole in the inner ball, which you wrap around and then pull to get started. If the string is missing, you can probably use any type of small string or fishing line.

Really stoked to see everyone getting the headbands... I almost don't care what else is in my Big o' Cosmos... The headband/wristbands make it all worth the $8!

Hopefully the headband is elastic enough to actually fit on my huge cranium!

Hahahaha - ohh the ideas are spinning for what type of picture to take. I hope I get them so I can "Rock them in style"

Cant wait till the end of next week. The Last Big o' Cosmos came on the day I found I was having a Son and now this one is set to arrive on my 8th year anniversary!!!

Mine is identical to this. Headband #1537. Yay! Also, a stranger complimented my Woot shirt today. That's never happened to me before. I'm wearing O R'lyeh?

It should fit- I have a huge head that barely fits normal hats and the headband fit just fine on me. :D

I have my tracking number and have to wait until July 2 for delivery! I can't wait!

The weight of the Big o' Cosmos is listed at 6 lb 8 oz, has anyone received a Big o' Cosmos with those shipping specs?

The delivery is only a week away! I am heading out to sit on the porch and wait - can someone bring me a sandwich on Tuesday? I will probably be hungry by then!

Same here , I missed out on the Woot buckets a year ago. The woot bands would be most appreciated by me.

Also, I plan on doing an unboxing video when my 6.1 lbs of Barking Orange Cats comes.
