Would you buy a BOC at auction?
I'm awaiting delivery of my Bag of Crap from the 5/22-23 Woot-off, but when it comes I don't plan to open it. Instead, I'm saving it for donation to a silent auction. I expect most of the bidders to be thoroughly confused, but a few will probably be familiar with Woot and the whole BOC phenomenon. I'll also display a printout of the 5/22 writeup for noobs, not that it'll help explain much.
So, if you saw an actual, physical, unopened BOC box in front of you, would you bid on it? We know people go crazy trying to get one when you have to ACT NOW GET IN THERE FAST BEFORE THEY"RE ALL GONE!!! but what if bid amount, rather than speed, were the determining factor? Would you plunk down $3? $8? More than that?
(Per FedEx shipping data, this looks to be a fairly standard crap, 12"x9.5"x9.5", about three pounds.)
