Damn - only 6lbs. Hopefully I get a remote control dinosaur though. One can only dream.
But I like to throw handfuls...

No fear!  6lbs. is still a substantial amount of crap.. I should know.. my dog seems to deposit turds of an equivalent weight that I joyously must find and pick up periodically.

Your order for 3 Random Crap on 01/31/2007 has been recently shipped via FEDEX.

Of couse you'll post pictures of your crap, right?

As was clear earlier in the thread, I never heard of woot before this thread was started.  Interesting and funny site.  I particularly liked the description of the car alarm system a few days ago.

That "whistle" .. how loud is it?  .. It reminds me of a product called a "sport horn" ..

I have one .. it is SUPER loud, like a fog horn.  I'm surprised some enterprising MU students don't buy a dozen and hand them out to the gold rush, freak out the opposing team during FT attempts.

"Personal CD with Digital FM Tuner and Wired Remote."

Ummm...what the hell is the point of a "wired" remote?  On a portable CD player?

Just guessing, but say you throw the cd player in your backpack, then you just have the remote and headphones coming out.  But really, who uses CD players in the day of MP3s anyway...

I though teams could get technical fouls for fans blowing whistles and the like?  Maybe this is something I've been mistaken on for several years.  Of course, if it sounds like a foghorn then maybe it wouldn't apply.

No idea what a wired remote is but hoping to get $10 on craigslist.
