shalt thou not get the stuff you want, want the stuff you get
Remember the woot-off? Here's another odd one - this morning, for about ten minutes, Woot had 3000 bags of "Random Stuff" (stuff is not their word but I don't like their word) for sale. One dollar, plus five dollars shipping. The wooters were there, 1:00 am. By 1:14 it was sold out, they were devastated (except for the lucky 3,000). Here is the warning Woot published and I like it for life in general too.
THE HOLY STUFF COMMANDMENTS v 2.0:
I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond one bag of some kind and your chosen quantity of crummy items (which should be THREE).
II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s stuff 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 stuff.
IV. Thou shalt not order just one stuff and blame it on anything but your own inattention.
V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the stuff you want, want the stuff you get.
Warranty: you wish
* 1 (one) bag
* Some (some) stuff
