Geekologie Review: Mystery Jumble Bags
So a Jumble Bag (link to site) is basically a Woot.com Bag of Crap, except you don't have to sit at your computer jamming F5 for two days straight only to watch the server crash and not get your order processed. $5 gets a random jumble sent to your door (free shipping) and you can choose between "original" (completely random), "tool" and "toy" bags. I got two separate jumbles, one of which contained more typical items (a little Koopa Troopa plushie and an LCD flashlight keyring that projects the time on your wall/ceiling/penis/girlfriend's breasts), and one rarer, nicer item (electronic breathalyzer!). If you've got $5 or $10 laying around it might be worth taking a stab at a bag or two. Of course, I'm a sucker for getting packages in the mail because I love the anticipation. I also love drinking and seeing how high I can blow on the breathalyzer. Which, funny story, tops out at 0.4 and doesn't automatically call an amberlamps (I pumped my own stomach with a toilet plunger).
Hit the jump for a shot of the LCD flashlight in action and one of what I typically blow when I wake up in the morning (no, not a dino -- good guess though).
Thanks to Jonners, Christine and Greg, who were all hoping for anthrax but got little toys instead.
