Awesome Stuff

It's time for a contest, and not some lame contest where all you get is a crappily made t-shirt. This contest offers a treasure trove of novelty junk that could surely have bought Manhattan or some other island back in the early days of screwing over American Indians.

There are two prize packages to be had and these will be awarded to the two LabSpaces members who have the highest point totals for the month. Both of them are pretty damn sweet though.

Package #1 contains an IDT Lab notebook, 2 IDT clickable sharpies, an EtonBio Pen, an Invitrogen Pen, and Invitrogen Lanyard, two LabSpaces stickers, AND an freaking sweet LabSpaces coffee mug! I can see you drooling already. If you ask nicely, I might even autograph it for you...

Package #2 has 2 IDT clickable sharpies, an EtonBio Pen, an invitrogen Pen, an Invitrogen Lanyard, 2 LabSpaces stickers, an EtonBio color-changing coffee mug, AND a LabSpaces Bumper sticker!

Finally, you get to choose ONE of 4 different T-shirts (while supplies and sizes last).

I have a bunch of the IDT shirts in small, medium and large. I have various colors of the EtonBio shirts in small, medium and Large, and I have only XL Invitrogen shirts.

How do I earn points??
Earning points is simple. You can read the details here. Or you can read the next paragraph...

You can receive points for:
Submitting a newslink that gets approved - plus 50
Posting a comment on a newslink, blog post, or posting in the forum - plus 5
Likes from other users - plus 1 per like

You can lose points for:
Posting Spammy or abusive comments on news stories, blogs, or in the forum - minus 20
Dislikes from other users - minus 1 per dislike

Seems pretty simple, right? Now a little advice to the points getters. I usually search for my external newslinks on Monday. So if you find cool science stories on Monday, there are probably 2,000 points to be had right there...

Good luck, and read the rules below!

Contest Rules: You must be a registered LabSpaces member. Don't cheat. LabSpaces bloggers aren't eligible for the winnings. You must live in the contiguous United States for me to ship this stuff to you for free. If you live outside the US, I can go down to the post office and figure out how much shipping will cost (It's in the basement of my building). I'll cover $10 worth :P You can only win once. Don't make multiple accounts. Excessive comment spamming will get you disqualified. I reserve the right to review points totals for validity.

Don't forget to visit the contest sponsors!

Wow I can't believe I allowed myself to post that. Note to self, no commenting when I am really tired. My grammar is bad and my jokes are a lot less funny ;).

What no free schwag for bloggers? Actually better not, that way I don't have to deal with any FTC regulations.

It also wouldn't be fair because you guys are obsessive about commenting on your own and one another's blogs :P

When I ran track in college, I was always known for my closing kick. ;)
