Oh ho ho! You are going to get me started on Woot and Bags of Crap. LOL I adore them so I am totally bias about the awesomeness of these things. When the Woot site has its Woot-Off and sells item after item for like 2 days, everyone waits impatiently for the elusive Bag of Crap. A bag costs $3 with the $5 shipping...so always $8...and it sells within a minute usually. It is a complete mystery bag. I have been a Wooter for several years now, and I can remember when a BOC could really be a stellar thing. My first one actually had a complete Roomba system in it. So I received a Roomba (and some random things) for $8. Loved it. Over time the BOC have become a little less great. Some people still score a flat screen TV or a laptop. I even saw a few people find an iPad in their boxes. It is more rare, though. Okay so if you can manage to win, you wait for your box. Other winners get on the discussion thread and discuss their dreams on the BOC. You finally get the shipping weight, and you hope for something very high. The anticipation is often the best part. Then it arrives, and you open it and hope for things you can use.

They are super hard to win so you are just happy to get one most of the time. My one that came yesterday had a 2-pack of AquaGlobes, a 2011 Shirt Woot calendar, 2 screaming Woot monkeys, a 50 piece SKIL drill set, special teas, and a breast pump. LOL
