Update: I presume since I typed "c r a p" and am instead seeing "Cornucopia" and "Cranberries" etc that Woot is doing some word substitutions (or maybe I installed that Chrome plugin and forgot)...but if you are seeing odd C words, just read it as "c r a p".

It's actually on topic. Apparently Woot offer a Basket of Cranberries for 25 seconds. The Basket of Cranberries has always been highly sought after. In the early days of Woot, product was available starting at 1am Central time and limited in quantity. Occasionally that product was a mystery "Bag o' Crap" which might be awesome and might be wires or packing material. Here's the Big ol' Cornucopia commandments:
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 Big ol' Cornucopia sold out earlier.
VI. Should thou fail in thy quest for crap, congratulations. Failure is the biggest crap of all.
