I HATE YOU Burgandy Olfactory Center!

PS. Dear Woot. I sell servers for a living. I'm willing to give you giant discount on fast big server if you send me Burgandy Olfactory Center...deal? sweet!

Wow, my 11th bag of carp! My first was 4/1/2008. I gotta say, they used to be a lot more exciting with people ending up with a HUGE variety, from broken phones to a dozen Sansa mp3 players. All in all it's been well worth it and of course no matter what I get I feel like a winner just for getting my order in. But I miss how ridiculous some of the carp was, like they just went to bizarre garage sales, stocked-up, and dumped it in boxes instead of taking inventory that probably won't sell. Oh well, here's hoping for good carp, I've certainly taken care of many a white elephant gift with what I've gotten in the past! Thanks Woot!

Too bad I work from a mac...and I don't trust my windows VM to be able to handle the craziness.
I hope they get the OSX version up soon!

I love how only .001% of the comments here pertain to the item at hand.

That said: I hate you, Woot. I have been so close, sooo many times and have never gotten the Burgandy Olfactory Center I hate you.

End of Line.

In for 3. I just remember Adam from Mythbusters saying 'If you have any water near where you live, you should have one of these in your car'. It was amazing how hard it was to bust the glass without a tool and how easy it was with it.

Got to the stupid gold button twice, and it returned a blank page. I don't mind patiently trying when the servers are slammed, but I do mind sloppy programming.

Thing is, the Burgandy Olfactory Center and the rest of the woot-off have to balance each other to make any sense at all. When the woot-off items are not discounted from previous prices, and the selection is mostly not good stuff, then the incentive to hang by the computer buying stuff and waiting for the coveted Burgandy Olfactory Center really goes down.

PS: You've misspelled Burgundy in your text substitution, Woot.

Really, I'm not blue, I don't have a ratty beard, and I NEVER wear pink.

Of course... I go to take a literal crap and that's when the Burgandy Olfactory Center is posted.

Oh yeah. Woot, Burgandy is spelled Burgundy. Just sayin'.

What ISP do you have? And why is it getting preferential treatment when queuing the Woot servers?

So it is boughten.... So it must be paid off with a second job!

Where does this go, exactly? I'm not sure where to put it.

The angle of the window spike looks *really* awkward if you're trying to bust the glass. I'd probably hit the window with the plastic edge before the spike.

Seriously people... what is the BEST thing you have ever gotten out of one of these? I think the best thing I got out of my two previous was some Crayola Princess coloring book that saved me having to buy a Christmas gift for a niece.



I haven't gotten much lately. Over the years though I've gotten many Sansa players (gave most away), a printer that sold on Amazon for > $100 (still works!), a Zune that I resold on eBay (for $118), and a bunch of White Elephant gifts!!!

Most keep it in the glove box, or a door side pocket so you can get to it when you need it in... you know... an emergency. :-)

The quest is not the destination, but the path. Where else can $8 buy so much glee and mirth? Not to mention X number of days of eager anticipation.

For you, meh?, why bother. WHY BOTHER? You denied a fellow Wootilian of their Bruised Orifice Cream. Take joy in that denial.

The rest of us? We await that day that you so obviously despise.

I gave a valiant effort! I just happened to see the cameras sell out and when I refreshed it showed me the Burgandy Olfactory Center with a full bar! I was about to get my second Burgandy Olfactory Center (and this one was a LOT easier than my April Fool's Burgandy Olfactory Center..), but alas I didn't realize that you weren't automatically IN if you clicked it while the bar was still full. After I finally clicked the gold button and confirmed my credit card number I texted all my friends with joy... You can guess the end. Woot you are a heart breaker, but that's why I love you!

add me in for one for someone who has never gotten the Burgandy Olfactory Center

considering it is probably stuff I don't need I shouldn't care but since I can't have it I do.

Therefore I am.
Without.
Any carp at all.
