How do you figure its biased? Simply because he sends to "random" parts of the world?

Also I'd say its pretty damn random, not many people score every time, myself included.

And aren't mondo flips enough these days? Gotta go in for seconds....... :D
i dont know that it's biased. But if you figure that he actually goes through the peoples emails and chooses, then there could be some favortism towards peoples names, locations, gender, email addresses, etc. Using a cart system, he doesn't even have to choose, the quickest check out does.

And as far as random, same thing...he could see a name that he is familiar with and choose them again. Or remember an address. And, what if I send 150 emails to the lottery email? Doesn't that increase my odds? If so, that's not very random.
Again, with a cart and paypal system, its quickest checkout wins.

EDIT:
And as far as going in for seconds, yes. Yes i did. I knew that i wasn't gonna win. And had i did, who knows? :lol: I'm looking for that Wilco McCarthy. :wink: But again, I didn't score.

Got nothing but love for the game.

Regardless, you and I both know that he should just use a paypal / inventory / cart system.

I'll take the lottery over a cart system anyday.
With the regular drops, by the time I wake up here in Australia, it's all done and dusted.

You Denver people (nice as you may be) are not making a very good argument for a drop being any more fair than the lottery.
just a foil for me today, thanks

Most people on here would be better off on a regular drop than the other however many nonposter weirdos out there that enter the lottery. So yeah, i vote regular drop too just for that reason.

I still think we should fight in a Thunderdome for the right to buy a Stout.

I would much prefer a regular old drop as well, but what can ya do. Dreading the day he makes another amazing poster for a movie I love, like with the Kill Bill screening.
