It's been awhile. Toss me on the end of the list. Do you need any bits to seed the first box, or are you just going to carry over the stuff from the end of the sixth series?

Grand High Crapmaster and signers-up take note: It appears that the price of shipping is creeping up. Current shipping cost seen on last BOC in the series VI, and confirmed at USPS site, is $18.90. I suggest that the rules be amended to be current in this regard.

Unless something happens before it gets to me, the Sixth Edition box will carry over.

As evidenced by a list somewhere that has me holding onto the Box o' Crap for something like 5 weeks, which most certainly did not happen. Or maybe, as the illustrious, all-knowing Crapmaster maintains the list, it most certainly did.

There have been actual, documented instances where the box of crap was shipped prior to receipt. Of course, knowing that there are government agencies that would love to get hold of the Crapmaster Tardis, The Crapmaster went back in time to change the documentation to throw the feds off the trail.

USPS just had their annual price increase, so the new price is $18.90. Should the rules be edited to reflect this?

And it should be 'an' before the price, not 'a'. This is an $18.90 flat rate box.

Or if you really liked the 'a', you could rearrange the sentence a bit. This is a Large USPS Flat Rate box, for which the postage cost is $18.90.

The price has already been updated and it has been ascertained that the Crapmaster cannot make grammatical mistakes. At least as far as the members are concerned. His wife, who is a school teacher, may not agree, but she is not a member of bikeforums! But kudos for boosting your post count.

Bonus for @ThermionicScott

Investment reference, but since I am not a broker/salesman, I have never had my Series 7.

Yes it is! I took the Chartered Financial Analyst exams which are tougher still. The CFA designation lets me waive the exam if I wanted my series 7, but I have no interest in testing that.

I appreciate your interest! Unfortunately, if you re-read rule #11, you must have 150 posts before you can be added to the list. Dont despair, keep following along and posting. You will get there! When you do, please re-submit your request. Thanks!

Two pages already and a queue thirteen deep including the omniscient one on a series that hasn't even started yet is just a hint of the good crap that is in our destiny. I'll jump in after the pandemonium has subsided...

Dear Master of the Crap Seven:

I humbly request to be added to the list for Series Seven. I have read Rule #11. Check out my post count and you will see that this message gets me to 150....I have been soooo anxious for this day to arrive!

I've read all of the other rules and promise to comply. AND, some time ago @las caucaveman offered to throw rocks at my house if I fail....he lives just a few miles from me.

Last, please know that I have some nice bits of crap rat-holed for the day the glorious box comes to me.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!!

Dean
