A Woot Classic Moment

We’re having so much fun being lazy reading these old write-ups that we’ve decided to share them with you through the end of our 10th birthday month! Check out this refurb- uh, classic.

Not Not Just Another Camera (January 2007):

Fifty cards through the deck now, 25 rounds of War - and still neither Alfie the Mouth nor the Pine Bluff Kid had managed to gain the upper hand (ha ha). Eleven to Alfie, eleven to the Kid, and three draws left one round to decide the Super World Bowl Series Championship Cup of War. A crackle of excitement shot through the several dozen spectators gathered at the Angkor Wat Casino. Even the oversized plaster pseudo-Khmer statues seemed fixated on the action (if you were drunk enough, anyway).

The Kid flipped a hundred-dollar chip onto the table. "That's how we do it Arkansassy style, big mouth. Your bet." But Alfie, well...since his big wipeout against Sammy Kwo at the Cloaca Room two weeks back, Alfie'd had a little bit of a cash-flow problem. There was no way he could see the Kid's bet - but there was also no way he was going to punk out now, not after everything he'd gone through to get here. With a fortifying sigh, he gingerly placed his Polaroid i639B 6.0 Megapixel Digital Camera on the table.

If the rubes were excited before, this gambit spurred them into paroxysms of utter astonishment. Every last man jack of them knew the i639B, had heard tales of its 3x optical zoom and 2.4" LCD, treasured the legends of its self-timer and PictBridge capability. They knew it was worth far, far more than the Kid's hundred-dollar chip, maybe as much as 50% more. But the crafty Arkansan wasn't obliged to accept the bet. If he didn't, it was all over. The Kid would ride a river of champagne and silicone to ever-greater glories, while Alfie would probably be washing Sammy Kwo's car by this time next week.

"I accept the bet." Not even the Pine Bluff Kid could resist the bewitching Polaroid i639B. The dealer moved slowly, the burden of the moment heavy on his shoulders. The whole room took a collective breath as he fingered the last two cards, the two thin slips of plasticized cardstock upon whose slim edges rested the destinies of two men.

Then I had to go to the bathroom really bad, so I didn't see what happened next. Anyway, not a bad little camera, huh? Maybe you should buy one.

Features

 

The ThunderBell Pro 10 Complete Training Program gives you the tool and the guidance you need to get the body you want. Jeremy Levine drew on his experience as a pro-athlete trainer and developer of the U.S. Navy SEALs Human Performance Program to create this functional training program that delivers total body fitness. Jeremy's workouts utilize the ThunderBell and its 7 unique gripping points to combine the benefits of the dumbbell, barbell, Kettlebell and medicine ball, adjusting variables of speed, range of motion, rhythm and intensity for the ultimate in-home workout program. The full-body workouts combine strength and cardio conditioning.

  • 7-grip design enables a seamless transition from one movement to the next
  • Combines dumbbell, barbell, kettlebell and medicine ball
  • Simultaneously builds and sculpts while developing balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and endurance
  • Ideal for all fitness levels

Cardio + Strength + Core in 1
While ThunderBell achieves similar results as a typical cardio workout, it also adds strength training so you get a 2-in-1 workout that not only burns calories to trim fat fast, but tones and defines muscles.

Total Body Results
The 3-dimensional exercises target both major and support muscles, "going beyond simple free-weight exercises that isolate muscles," for balanced muscle development and increased strength.  (POTENTRx Performance, Biomechanical Analysis of Six ThunderBell Movements)
