Fellow Woot Comrades -

My Brick of Carbonite came in the mail 2 days early! For 3 1/2 years I've been trying for a Bouts of Consternation and I must tell you... my 28.4 lb package did NOT disappoint!!! It was extra CRAPPY with all the crap I've been oggling.

The package came in a non-branded woot box. Quite flimsy to the point that I thought I had grabbed the wrong package. Low and behold - it was from Woot in TX.

Here's the loot layed out!!


I grabbed my knife and opened the box to find A REFURBISHED TWO LAYER SINGLE INFLATABLE BED!

Refurbed because:
(1) There are 3 attempted patches (SEEN ON THE PIC) w/ air leaking BADLY
(2) The softer/firmer remote control sticker was placed BACKWARDS!!! lol
(3) The plastic casing holding the electronic is broken clear off

The bed fully inflates but as my friend put it... makes you wake up at 4am feeling like the meat of a plastic a taco

I'd love to hear some creative other means of using a broken air mattress. I'm going to try to repair it as I'm sure the lovely Woot employees have for their afternoon siestas!!

But the fun didn't stop there! SO much more goodies in the rest of this package!!! In detail:

(x1) Kids Size 10 Woot! Shirt
(x2) Sanyo 4-pack AAA Batteries
(x1) Orange Bucky Balls
(x1) Flu & Germ Protection Pack
-Face Masks, Hand Sanitizer, & Gloces
(x1) 3-pack "One" Natural Soap
(x1) 9-pack Whiskey Stones
(x1) Terrific Turkey Thermometer
(x1) Paper Calendar Mousepad
(x1) Green Battery Charger & 4 AA Batteries
(x1) Life Gear "Auto Glow CL" for auto emergencies
and of course the essential (x1) lil black bag!!

I LOVE my CRAP!

THANK YOU WOOT FOR AN AWE STRUCK BAG OF CARROTS!!!!

After 4 years of wooting, I got my first Brick of Carbonite, and I'm pleased.





  • The attractive sunflower shopping bag.
  • Useful water bottle cleaning tablets (tried these out right away).
  • Our cow is dressed as a Matador.
  • Chuck Norris Plushie (too bad we can't hear him.)
  • Made in China wrist watch.
  • Projector screen for an Optoma pico pocket projector.

And where is the guide how this is accomplished?

Is it just me, or he sounds a lot like Dark Vader. XD


Here are the steps to restore speech to your Chuck Norris doll;
1. Find a seam ripper (if you are a man, your Mom/girlfriend/wofe probably has one in their sewing stuff). Spread the back of the doll apart with your fingers and work the seam ripper into one of the stitches about half way down his back. Rip out the stitches one by one until you get down to his pants.
2. You should be able to reach in and pop out a little sack contining the sound module. Find the seam where the sack is sewed up and rip out those stitches with the seam ripper.
3. Pop the sound module out of the sack. The sound module has a non-glued cover. Using a knife or a thin implement, work it along the seam between the top and bottom until it comes loose. Carefully poke a toothpick through the cover with the switch button to eject the PC board with the batteries on it. Be careful not to lose the little rubber switch when the PC board comes out. (see the small rubber thing below the PC board in the picture).
4. Bend the metal tab holding in the batteries out of the way (it will probably just break off). Puch the batteries out of the holders with a toothpick.
5. Put new batteries in (AG3 or LR41). 6. Put the PC board into the bottom of the sound module (the bottom has the speaker in it). Be careful of the speaker wires. They break easily (I had to resolder mine to the speaker and the PC board).
6. Place the rubber switch piece on the zig-zag pattern on the PC board.
7. Align the small hole in the cover with the rubber switch piece and replace it on the bottom of the module. Make sure the tip on the little rubber piece fits into the hole in the cover. Push the cover in until it is fully seated.
8. Test the module to make sure it works, replace it in the sack and close Chuck back up.
9. Chuck Speaks! See the video back on page 59.

There was a recall on Dingo dog treats a while ago. I think I would not feed them to anything I love or let a kid near them.

Just realized I haven't listed my haul yet. It came yesterday, three days before its estimated arrival of 6/5, and contained:

1 purple sunflower tote bag
1 kids' size 8 t-shirt
1 Terrific Turkey probe
1 paper mousepad/planner
1 bag Flu & Germ Protection supplies
1 lavender over-the-door hook rack
2 Sanyo AAA battery 4-packs
1 World Tech Toys Phantom s107 rc helicopter

This is a pretty great bag; I started getting a little worried when people's contents were a lot like the previous offering, but the only duplicate items were the turkey probe and the flu supplies, and I really NEEDED some AAA batteries soon. And a radio-controlled helicopter, although I did not know that I needed one until it arrived.

As always, kudos to Colonel Crap and his tireless minions at woot for another job well done.

I may have been to harsh in my previous comments about New Berlin SmartPost. My Box of Critters left New Berlin at 6PM(only locked up for 2 days). There is a chance I could get it Monday. I would expect Tuesday for sure. Scheduled for Wednesday.

For the cow lovers, I already have 1 I I wasn't consulted. If I get another, I will have 2 I I wasn't consulted.

No, you need 2 (two).

I took mine apart and tried AG something of the same size and got no joy.

Will get the right ones tomorrow and hit reload.

So, this came on Saturday, but it took me a while to get around to posting this. My Bouts of Consternation was 10.5 lbs, 25.5" x 16.5" x 10.6" so I was a tad excited to get it. :D



I got:

1 x Black Duffel Bag
1 x Kids' Size 10 T-shirt with a pocket printed on with a Koala in it
2 x 4-pack of Sanyo AAA batteries
3 x Bars of Peace One Body Soap
1 x JVC Camera Case
1 x Terrific Turkey Timer
1 x Pack of Bar Crawl Bingo Cards

And the 2 items I'm most excited about are...

1 x Dream Spa Shower head
1 x Axe CP RC Helicopter

I've been actually thinking about getting a shower head for myself, so... But then again, YAY HELICOPTER!!! :D

The camera is truly an item of crap with 320x240 resolution. Despite the low resolution, it seemed to take fairly clear true color images. Pretty much a child's toy. It was a common item in the previous Bouts of Consternation

Mike! Welcome back! You missed some great crap. A silent but deadly Chuck Norris seems to be the theme. Oh and a guy saying he was getting a letter then he got the letter and would tell us once he got off from work then he disappeared from the woot community. Thats about the sum of it. Im sure youll have to read about 15 pages or so to catch up. So did you get your bag yet? Been looking for what you got.

    mine left Kansas city June 1st at 1:54 am headed for Pittsburgh. I haven't heard from it since then,and to make matters worse, I can no longer track by reference. Maybe it will show up on Tuesday as originally promised, or maybe it deserted the cause and joined the roombas. Time will tell.
