@AttyVette i have no clue jow i successfully grabbed a BOC on woot yesterday. During check out I had tonlogin and then verify my amazon login by clicking a link sent to phone. After all of that, it still went through
@OnionSoup I stopped going to Woot the day they gave free shipping to prime members. I’m not a prime member so I have to pay shipping. When they expected to get $5 shipping for each item previously, the item was discounted accordingly. Now the prices are about the same you can find elsewhere but after adding that shipping makes it not economical to purchase.
I still get woot shirts though because free shipping. Once they charge for shipping on shirts, that’s when I’m going to stop buying them.
@Felton10 since you get lots of attention, I triple dog dare you to taunt the powers of Meh about your lack of dildos, vibrators, KY, etc. Would get a chuckle out of your reveal post and photos on that one.
@cbilyak Haven’t I gotten in enough trouble already with the powers-that-be at Meh. But then again there may be some interest there-was trying to find out if the number of likes I got on my April 1st reveal was anywhere near the record if such information was kept and was told by my sources that the record for likes was probably held by some person who posted about fingering his dog. So you are probably on the right track about things that interest this group.
@AttyVette I have had several that way (eg bag was the only thing, the rest broken, used trash and/or odd replacement bits to things I didn’t own). And a few that are worth far more even if, for example, the size of something didn’t fit me or family.
@er1c@Felton10@Kidsandliz gets here at about 5 am (Pacific time), but still, it was from the day before when “The Oracle” said he’d have to do something about the warehouse, or something like that.
@er1c: under Membership/Your Membership/Email Subscriptions, check “Meh daily deals”. Gets you a daily email with usual nonsense, down at the bottom is an"excerpt" of inter-personal office chatter, which often has a clue when Meh-rathons are coming.
Maybe i’ve jinxed myself, maybe NOT…
Last week I made the statement, “I know WHERE I’ll be for the next Mehrathon”!
Low and behold, here I am, in the hospital, with a much MUCH faster internet speed than I have at home. THEN, I see it’s ALL about predictions, how ironic is THAT?
No luck yet, I could REALLY use a little “pick-me-up” right about now! Come on Meh, help me out!!
@Lynnerizer Hope you get one. And that you recover from whatever is wrong quickly (well but not before this mehrathon is over so you can stack getting an irk a bit more favorably with faster internet).
Well thanks OnionSoup, THAT’S one heck of a grand gesture, (or ask of one) I certainly DO feel extra special! Even though I wasn’t quick enough to score a IRK, yesterday’s Mehrathon was exactly what I needed! It was a super great distraction from the medical mess i’ve found myself in. So far i’ve got 4 blood clots in my legs, not even sure how that compares to the PE/pulmonary embolism I had years ago as i’m STILL waiting for a Dr to come in to explain. All I know is that this IS some scary stuff!
@id10t@Star2236 there are very few IRK offerings today so total numbers for both are low.
I must say though,if I have to pick between 4 Irk offerings of 100 each and 8 irk offerings of 50 each… I’d go for the 100 each… Even though it’s the same total number of irks… by making it less about speed it is rewarding those who hang around looking for one.
Is anyone else losing interest in the Irks? They used to be so much fun and random and now they just feel like the left overs from the trash. I always expected disappointment but now I feel more disappointment than when amazon bought out the last site.
@arbdef oh, I find them fun still. I have got a laugh out of most of mine. The only thing disappointing is that they don’t do anything really silly very often… Like sending someone a giant gumball machines or pallets of something random. What they did for @felton with the balls was fun though and reminds me of the old days…
@arbdef I think part of the problem is that with so few sold at once it is pretty much a given that if you have high latency so it takes more than a second to load (here my latency is often 170-180 and typically the page takes 6-8 seconds to load so already sold out) and with crosswalks, etc. It becomes almost impossible. At least with 500 a shot they were open long enough that even those with issues like still had a chance. Now we really don’t unless meh has a glitch. That is discouraging and greatly decreases my motivation to be involved.
@Kidsandliz@smilingjack I have a friend who has the most subtle tattoos I’ve ever seen - two dots, about 1 mm wide, one on each hip. They were focus points for radiation therapy! I tease him about his “tats.”
I have concluded that I lack the free time and good (bad?) luck to score an IRK (though I once landed a Fukubukuro). I can just never catch it in time, which means the only things I get from a Meh-rathon are things I choose. I take some solace in the fact that I usually regret most of those purchases, too–it’s just not instant…
