Project CRAP: Week 11 Report

Click here for the explanation of Project CRAP
Box size: 15" wide by 11" tall by 9" deep.
Total Weight of CRAP: 8.41 lbs
Depth of CRAP: 3 3/4"
New Pieces of CRAP: 10
Total Pieces of CRAP: 131
LowLight of the Week: Skor has no idea how Rx Help for Washington got his address, but whatever channels this information came to them through, they apparently were not very trustworthy. Rx Help for Washington seems to have at least 3 misconceptions about Skor: 1 - His name is Zaphod Beeblebrox. 2 - He is over 50 years old and in need of cheap prescription drugs. 3 - He is a female (Ms. Zaphod Beeblebrox). Now, Skor might have some idea where they got that first idea, since he just may have signed up for a few magazine subscriptions under that name, as well as registered it with the post office when he moved into his current residence. However, Skor really has no idea why they think he's an old woman in need of medication. Skor isn't really anxious to find out, either. Marketing databases work in mysterious ways, it seems.

Comments: So, when Skor lifted the scanner to scan this week's LowLight he discovered that he left last week's lowlight in there--doh! This means that the weight listed above is slightly low. Unless you're reading this after about 9:00 AM on Tuesday, in which case Skor has already fixed it, so disregard this message. It should also be noted that Skor has received a fair number of items to date that, while not technically falling under the definition he has laid out for CRAP, were indeed unwanted postal mail. Skor intends to have a special report on these items at a later date. It just seemed that you should know, so you have something special to look forward to. Skor is not going to tell you exactly when it will come though, because he wants it to be a surprise.

My dad and I registered for COMDEX in the fall of 2000 under the names of fictional characters from Douglas Adams' famous series, because Douglas Adams was doing a presentation for one of the companies exhibiting there. A few people brought towels, but we brought our name badges:

Ford Prefect - Travel Researcher, Infinite Improbability Engineering

Arthur Dent - Crisis Control Manager, Infinite Improbability Engineering

He autographed the badges. But, on the downside, we've been getting spam for those names ever since.

The best piece of CRAP we got is shown
here along with an appropriate Dilbert strip. It's still sealed. It's in a frame up on my dad's wall...
