To start the calculation, there's 6.5 billion people on earth and about 2.5 million wooters. So it's at least 6.498 billion people, I think, who haven't gotten a BoC.

@dave bug: uh, not all wooters have gotten a BOC. Therefore your off by 2.3 million.

@dave bug: why stop at the living.

106,456,367,669 estimated people have ever been born* and I'd say at least 106,456,267,669 of them were never able to get random crap from woot.

I'll burn you a copy if you really want more cowbell.

I can proudly say for certainty after 2 years of wooting I have my first batch of crap on it's way - shipping confirmation in my email today!

@adhurt: What's funny is that I seldom seriously try for the bag of crap. I was very sorry this time to miss out on the white-caped monkey though. I love the monkeys. I have at least one of all of them, except for red (and now white). They make me laugh every time I shoot them. I just can't see how junk I don't want in a box could even come close.

Well, unless there were Leakfrogs.

@SecretAgentWoman: nice!!!! from what I saw in the last crop of BOC's not a lot of good stuff, but that was only about 200/1500 people who got it posting. I think LEM- estimated that number.

Speaking of LEM-, where is he/she?

I have never managed to get a BOC, and I have tried. Been Wooting since 2004...feel deprived, leads to depravity...

Got as close as the "Your order is in and being processed" page during the last woot off, but never got a confirmation email or had it show on my account page. That's ok though. I was just tickled as all get out to have ever gotten that far. It pays to memorize CC security number.
Some day I'll get that blinged out cabbage. So it'll be a set of cheap earbuds and a shake-to-work flashlight. It won't matter, because it'll be BOC treasure!

Wow... well based on the responses I should continue to hate the two guys I know who got BOCs and maybe just kneecap them next time they get one.

Just a follow up... I did get my first Baby of Christmas this past woot.off

I no longer have to hate my friends who have it!

For the record, I have never received one. I consider it my fiduciary duty.

I can say that there was a shipment just today.

i think that everyone who has already scored a BOC should be automatically eliminated from future consideration. selfish as that my seem and unpopular to boot, 'tis probably my only hope for reaching that elusive grail. bring on the flames, BOC winners!
