Just kidding.

B.O.C. was huge in Japan.

We could always start an outlaw box.

I think it might be kinda funny if the crapmeister would randomize the order of the recipients a bit, so we couldn't see whose next until the crap arrives. Probably too complicated....

Dunno how that would work, though - how could the person sending get the address of the next person receiving if he hadn't a clue who was next in line? Gugie's not the clearing house for the mailing addys, after all.

Oh, wait - this ain't my job anymore! @gugie: hit Rudi up with some knowledge

Hey, don't look at me, I just see a smoothly working machine and oops, where did I put my spanner? Eh, this is what George Carlin called someone else's problem.

Didn't we do a holiday BOC for a year or two there? Wait. I'm gonna have another glass of this leftover champagne. That always helps me remember stuff.

Check out who I had to follow on the previous list.

If Rudi doesn't ship, you're the new Crapmaster.

It's a tradition.

Okay, I'm in, mostly in an effort to unload some measure of crap that's accumulated in my basement. I should probably send a separate box to everyone on the list.

Fair warning:

When the box gets to me I will have several pressing personal issues and a couple of dead pets to deal with, all of which will keep me from getting to the mailbox for approximately one week. At that point I'll open the box and take some pictures, but after that I'll be taking a sabbatical in Ecuador so if I think to take the box with me it will ship to the next recipient via international parcel post and could be a while. More likely I'll just leave it at home until I return sometime around St Patrick's Day. By then I will have forgotten about it though, so if someone could send me a request for status or a simple reminder sometime around mid-March that'd be cool. Thanks!

As a long time vicarious player, I've often thought it would be fun to see two or three different threads interweaving with one another. A conflagration of Mobius Strips macrameed together across the space-time continuum. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%B6bius_strip
To take it a step further, the box that Mtn Bike currently has could be the renegade box, which bounces around with no rhyme or reason. You can put that together, can't you gugie?

I am the Crapmaster, I am not a Time Lord.

That said, I will see if Harbor Freight sells a sonic screwdriver and get it done.

Done.

I'm sure you've still got boxes of stuff from the Alma shop. The Garner brothers never threw anything away...Mike threw nickels around like they were manhole covers.
