Since the dawn of time, when our primitive ancestors stood on craggy
tors watching pterodactyls ride the thermals, man has always had a
single dream: Remote control mini-helicopter flight. It's been a long
time coming, too, what with the prerequisite inventions of the airfoil,
the full-sized helicopter and radio control. At last our crowning
achievement as a species is here, and at a price that makes it
available for everyone to experience. Let us each crash one.
plucky skeeter is tiny and cute and, weather permitting, goes
thrillingly high. Its design's improved over previous versions--before,
the remote was more or less for show, as past chopper models never
regarded the signals they received as anything more than mild
suggestions. Now, though, if you're careful, you can almost steer the
thing. That's if you're careful. And you should be, because a few
full-speed collisions with the side of your house or the ground will--as
you might expect--bust it. Our warehouse tester (a man of uncommonly
keen aeronautical instincts and steely nerve) was able to actually
guide the thing around and even successfully land it. If you're
reckless or panic easily, maybe you'll want to buy a couple extra
The heavens beckon, terrestrian! Launch
thy polystyrene emissary into their wide embrace! Revel in the feeling

Description: (click show to see it)
Everything's connected, see. That's the circle of life. Each
creature on earth is linked to every other, bound by an intricate
biological web. That's why you can't just look at one individual, or
even one species--you have to step back and take in the whole
globo-ecological supersystem. That's the only way you get a clear
picture of--of... Hunh! OK, of <a href="http://wine.woot.com/">him,</a> it turns out. Wouldn't have expected that.

(1) 2004 Velvet Label Napa Valley Cabernet Magnum with Velvet Gift Box
Description: (click show to see it)
So you've never thought of yourself as the type who'd have a Velvet <a href="http://shirt.woot.com/">Elvis in the house,</a> eh? Well, as a great man once sneered: Reconsider, baby.
A masterpiece in its own right, this one's a Special Second Edition numbered and limited collector's release of Graceland Cellars' original premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in a one-and-a-half-liter magnum bottle. There are only 7,200 of these bottles on earth, which explains why somebody went to the T-R-O-U-B-L-E of affixing a velvet label to each one, and enshrining it in a velvet gift box.
We picture the person who opens that box doing a little Velvet Elvis impersonation of his or her own. Gazing on this un-Blue Christmas gift, the recipient sheds a single tear--just like the King did in so many masterworks of oil on velvet, in so many transitory bazaars, in the parking lots of so many filling stations across this great land. Don't cry, Daddy. That's alright, Mama. Santa Claus is back in town.
