Project CRAP: Week 12 Report

Click here for the explanation of Project CRAP
Box size: 15" wide by 11" tall by 9" deep.
Total Weight of CRAP: 9.15 lbs
Depth of CRAP: 4"
New Pieces of CRAP: 11
Total Pieces of CRAP: 142
LowLight of the Week: Project CRAP does not discriminate. When Verizon DSL places mock-worthy CRAP in Skor's mailbox, they win the LowLight of the Week award. When their competitor, Comcast (Skor's own internet provider) sends out CRAP of equal or lesser value, they too earn themselves some recognition. This week's gem includes six end-note clauses. As in, they used *, **, ^, ^^, , and †† each to refer to some fine-print clause clarifying the extraordinary claims in the BIG BOLD TEXT. Probably the only reason they didn't have more clauses is because they were starting to run out of symbols to use. See if you can spot them all!

Comments: On the eve of the big first quarter milestone, it finally happened. The total weight of the CRAP box exceeded the capacity of the super-precise scale. Maxing out at 10 pounds (9.15lbs of CRAP + 0.86lbs of box = 10.01lbs), it is actually surprising that it has gone this long. Fortunately, Skor was taught the wonders of math, and will be capable of weighing each week's new CRAP, and adding that to the cumulative total weight of CRAP. See kids? And you thought that math didn't have any real world uses. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Cool! It's just like Where's Waldo. That †† sure was sneaky. I almost missed it.
