I just love these

THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v3.1

I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and SOME NUMBER OF crappy items.

II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.

III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.

IV. Thou shalt not expect better crap just because things are different this time. Crap is crap.

V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.

VI. Shalt thou receive Woot-Off lights only, thou shalt consider that crap enough.

I got my woot lights and a 10% chance of a BoC.  Not bad for not hitting the site until almost 2 a.m. on their birthday.

*and the site shows that they're still available... insane.

Same I bought them too.  Its only a 1 in 10 chance at the bag of crap so thats why I think they are still up.

Those are still better odds than most of us have ever seen.

I picked one up too.  I've never even seen the BoC available so, as others have said, 1 in 10 is pretty good odds.  icon_biggrin

Has anyone here actually won a BoC? Is it just that - whatever they find in the office they want to get rid of?

Yep. Never got one, but read posts by people who have. Useless shit you would never need for the most part. Or broken shit that is garbage. Someone around here got 3 MP3 players and none of them worked. Supposedly, occasionally you get cool stuff, but I have never seen a post by a person got anything even remotely cool.

I won a BoC last time they had one.

Actually got a $140 phone out of it.  New in box, too.

8331.68 is the Dow Jones and I do believe I get me a bag of crap as my order ends in 8.
