Project CRAP: Week 25 Report

Click here for the explanation of Project CRAP
Box size: 15" wide by 11" tall by 9" deep.
Total Weight of CRAP: 20.34 lbs
Depth of CRAP: 8 1/2"
New Pieces of CRAP: 12
Total Pieces of CRAP: 318
LowLight of the Week: Behold, the CRAP of many mysteries. Mystery #1: How did Skor become a GRAND PRIZE WINNER without ever entering a contest? Mystery #2: Where on Earth is Harbour Pointe? That name does not sound at all familiar to Skor. Mystery #3: Who the heck sent this thing to Skor? There isn't even a business name listed on here! All that can be discerned from this CRAP is that some place in the mysterious "Harbour Pointe" is trying to sell Mitsubishis, Lincolns, and Mercurys. Only after an extensive scouring of the Internet did Skor finally uncover the identity of the business being advertised: Harbour Pointe Lincoln Mercury & Mitsubishi. Apparently "Harbour Pointe" is another word for "South Everett." Usually, when you send out an advertisement, you want the unwitting recipients to be able to contact you, or maybe come to the event you are advertising. Perhaps this is some bold new phase of advertising—send out ads without indicating any way to contact your business, and let the customers work to find you. If we're lucky, the next phase will move into just not sending out ads at all, and letting the potential customers do all the work.

Dishonorable Mention: Sweet! Earthlink has teamed up with Visa to offer Skor this amazing opportunity to get another credit card! Hmm, wait. This offer is "EXCLUSIVELY FOR EARTHLINK CUSTOMERS". Skor is not an EARTHLINK CUSTOMER. Why then, did Earthlink send this offer to Skor? The world may never know. It's really too bad, because Skor was quite looking forward to being rewarded for his online connection.

Comments: As you can see in the photograph below and the listed depth above, the CRAP box has very nearly reached maximum capacity. It is uncertain at this point what course of action will be taken once this box is filled. Should Project CRAP expand to a second box, or upgrade to a larger single box? It is a compelling dilemma. Feel free to chime in with your recommendations and advice. Next week's report marks the halfway point of Project CRAP, so keep your eyes peeled for a special report, with some kind of extra content.

You should do what I do with the garbage - keep piling it on top!

Eventually you will have to carefully balance each new piece of crap on a teetering pile of crap like some kind of insane crap jenga ninja!

Build a box extension. All you need is four pieces of cardboard and a roll or two of duct tape. Heck, you could probably skip the cardboard and just use duct tape.
