1 Sack-o-Feces is headed my way. Here's my problem- My wife pretty much forbid me after the last time from even attempting to get another. So here's how I see this going down: either (a) the sack will be so corn- and peanut-riddled (figuratively of course. I pray to L. Ron Hubbard that it doesn't actually come loaded down with corn and peanuts) that it can only be interpreted by her as what it truly is (feces), or (b) the sack will be so over-the-top awesome (TV? Dyson? iPad? a couple of iPods?) that she finally admits that my pursuits are not in vain.
We are at something of a crossroads at my house, though my wife won't realize it for about another 10-12 days. Game on.

Got one!! Thank you ColonelCrap and the Woot Gods! Bring on the rations! As always, we will be thrilled with whatever you send, just make it an interesting assortment of stuff, please!

BTW, put the Blu-ray from our March Basket of Crickets on our 40" Emerson TV scored at 2AM on Black Friday at Walmart ($248). I must say, the picture quality is absolutely AWESOME for the price ($256 total cost). Hey Colonel, how about throwing a surround sound system or a nice DVD or Blu-Ray assortment into this bag to complete the setup?

Standing by for deployment, SIR!

Two chances already this Woot-Off? Geeze.

Woke up an hour ago, saw there had been one already and so started getting ready for work. Came back to find another one had been offered...

Sad face.

Alright, got my Brick of Carbonite! That makes 3 in a row for me now. I'm really liking Woot's new servers. Much better than it used to be.

This has always showed up right after I left. I suspect with 1000 already brown offered that this is a short woot off.

I actually thought I got a Brick of Carbonite...
Until I was trying to pay for it and it said sold out. How the hell do people get these??? I literally cound not have been any faster. Is there a way to set up my woot account so it just automatically pays when I hit "I Want One"

I am getting so antsy to get a Bundles of Clones already! I missed the early morning Bundles of Clones and then I was refreshing for the 2nd one and everything started to freeze up! I have 35mbps download!!! LOL I hope there is another offered today as it seems there is only 2 per day.

Yay, got one! Hopefully it will come by my birthday, which was shaping up to be a sad and lonely affair, what with my son off in another state finishing up his first year of college and Coast Guard hubby off in Central America or something floating around looking for bad guys. Now I have something to look forward to after all. Thanks Woot!

Given that we've already had two Bananas of Certitude already, this is probably a one-day Woot!-off.

So relax and have a drink.

I've got to say, this new system is of great benefit to me. I just started an accelerated prerequisite class and it would have cut right into the old Blindly Operating Cranberry time. I was able to get this one right as I woke up.

Good luck! Hopefully it's of the awesome kind. This is my fourth Bundles of Clones and I think my wife's patience is probably dwindling with each one. :-\

Man, woke up and missed this by literally 10 seconds. should of gotten up instead of hitting snooze. Quick question though, if you already have gotten a crap the 1st go, are you able to buy another the other times it pops up during a wootoff? Or does it all count as one product listing since it all goes to the same forum thread?

You can only get one during any given wootoff, per account. However this doesnt stop people from trying though.

My Pavlovian response when I see Big Orange Cheese is to BUY BUY BUY!
Thank you for letting me have one this time, but I really do hope it's better stuff than the one from the last WootOff. A girls small shirt and some Jeep branded baby wrap thing to use in grocery shopping carts? For a big older guy with no kids or grandkids? Oh, and the old Bell and Howell spy cam toy. Hoo Doggy. Can I stand it?

Hey! I just noticed that the Carp Commandments have been upgraded to version 4.0.

I was looking for the "Love the carp you're with" one, but it's out.

I definitely like the new Carp approach, where they are scattered throughout the event. 3PM-ish on the last day of the WootOff was getting too predictable.

My wife long ago forbade me from ever ordering another Brick of Carbonite. I have gone to great lengths to circumvent this mandate. I now have a very small independent bank account exclusively for Paypal transactions for ordering, my fedex.com account lets me check the delivery date and any delays, and the Zmodo security camera system purchased through Woot! allows me to monitor for the arrival of bags of crap on the day of delivery. These, in turn, let me either drive separately to work on the specified day (my wife and I work at the same organization) and get home before my wife, or I can call my daughter to get to the house and take any packages to the basement for my perusal before the triumphant reveal to the wife...Or, in some (most) cases, sneak the extra crappy crap out to the car for donation.

All these dramatic measures will not work in the event there is a package too heavy for my daughter to lift, or anything involving pallets. I'm up for the challenge if you are, Woot! :D

I dropped a bottle of beer on my toe last night and I am pretty sure it is broken. All it will take to make the pain go away is the joy of a Balaklava of Cranium.

Your bottle of beer is broken? Ooooh, that's awful! No wonder you are in such pain.

Sheesh.

Glad I'm not as hen-pecked as you guys. My wife enjoys seeing the Bags of Crap that I get, and has even gotten a few of her own. And we have nothing to complain about the cost, after getting 20 BOCs, my total cost is -$57. Yes, that's negative $57, since I sold a few of the items. But even better, I've had all this wonderful Crap!

It's less hen-pecked than hound-harried.

IF you get a box of crud, can you try to buy again in the same woot off?

Yep, I'm trying the best I can to be careful for what I wish for in this place. Hahaha.

I wouldn't mind having a monkey-warfare at home with a hundred monkies though. :D Plus I'll end up just sending those over to my homeland in Asia for kids in need.

Still crossing my fingers for gadgets though or camping stuff. :D

You'll be stopped from buying one under the same account and credit card number. Dont be greedy now. :]

Today, I also hit 100 Woots and finally got my black square!!

I'm hoping I can top it all off by getting a Brick of Carbonite!
