I've been visiting Woot! for months, so far haven't bought anything, but the famed Barrel of Crops enticed me. Seems like my odds of receiving a flaming bag of real crap on my doorstep from a dancing monkey are greater than the odds of me receiving a Woot! Barrel of Crops.
Hours wasted on Woot: countless

Hey now. THERE ARE
New commandments, (sans Stephen Stills)
THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v4.0
I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and THREE crappy items.
II. Thou shalt probably expect not to even get a Bag o’ Crap at all. We only have enough for about 10% of the people who want them. Thou art probably in that other 90%.
III. Thou shalt notice that “crap” is right there in the title. Thou shalt not complain when it turns out we were telling the truth.
IV. Thou wouldst probably be better off spending thine eight bucks on just about anything else.
V. Thou shalt be assured that Woot hath upgraded its servers and code to minimize errors and crashes. But thou shalt remind thyself that even if those servers did work perfectly, it would simply mean the Bunnies Ogling Carrots sold out earlier.
VI. Should thou fail in thy quest for crap, congratulations. Failure is the biggest crap of all.
You're either on the bus, or off the bus.

You are making things worse.
