Woot Bag of Crap

Finally after 13 years of trying I got a woot bag of crap.  I don’t know how many times I clicked to buy a bag of crap only for the server to time out or they were sold out by the time I got to pay.

Here are some pictures of my crap.  Here is my box the shipping said 4 lbs so I was not expecting much but turns out I was wrong.

Opening the box was quite the surprise because I thought it was going to be one thing.  There is something that said there were 30 items within the box.

I think I counted 19 items instead of 30 but it is still impressive.  Here is everything out of the box.
