The Never List by Koethi Zan

There were four of us down there for the first thirty-two months and eleven days of our captivity. And then, very suddenly and without warning, there were three. Even though the fourth person hadn’t made any noise at all in several months, the room got very quiet when she was gone. For a long time after that, we sat in silence, in the dark, each of us wondering what this meant for her and for us, and which of us would be the next in the box.

Sports That Saved The World

True fitness isn’t just about the body. It’s about the mind. That’s why we’re gonna motivate you, right now. Did you know that some sports can save… the world? It’s true! Throughout history, man has told stories (both real and imaginary) that center around the magic of sports. We’ll start at the beginning, shall we?

Heroic twins Hunahpu and Xbalanque marched down a long, descending labyrinth into the Mayan Underworld, to free their father and uncle. The contest? That freaky Mayan basketball game thing, played against the rulers of the Underworld. The final score? Twins 1, Underworld 0! And, in the after-game celebrations, the sun and the moon were formed. Just goes to show you, don’t park on the street the night of a championship game.

We all know the story of Atalanta, don’t we? In short, a young lady uninterested in traditional gender roles is defeated by a cheating young man she is then forced to marry, ensuring the Patriarchy remains fully unthreatened for a few more centuries. Close call there, right, fellas?

Around 1914, in the middle of World War I, the German and British troops decided Christmas was too special a time for war. Carols were shared, greetings were exchanged, and then, finally, there was a little game of soccer in the middle of No Man’s Land. This game was so amazing that it inspired two different ’80s music videos but the officers behind the lines hated it. As did a young Adolf Hitler. So, you know, choose your side.

Every week in this space, we’ll take a look at the news and offer our own incisive blend of commentary, analysis, and poop jokes. The news you need, from a voice you can trust, in the 90 seconds you have to spare: that’s Woot Weads the Wire.

A North Carolina judge says a woman convicted of resisting a public officer and being intoxicated and disruptive must write an essay on being a lady.Highlights are expected to include hating Siamese cats and the proper technique for eating spaghetti on a date.

A Canadian cat was recovering Saturday after being shot with an air rifle, but its owner said it would have been worse if not for its fat belly.This dark and gritty story will soon be told in full as part of the Mark Millar scripted reboot of the Garfield franchise.

Britain’s Royal Mint said babies born on the same date as the child of Prince William and his wife, Kate, will be presented with special silver pennies.

Get a Piece of Woot’s Birthday Action

Happy Woot’s 9th birthday, y’all! If we could, we’d stop by your desk, cockpit, dugout, lifeguard chair, or clown car and have a piece of cake with you. But any idiot knows that’s impossible, so instead, we’re inviting you to eat video cake with us in a live stream we’re calling Bag of Cake!

If it’s between 9 AM and 5 PM Pacific time, you should be looking at a bonafide Woot staffer eating authentic cake in our lifelike video studio. And if you’re extremely lucky, that Woot staffer will show or tell you how to get your hands on our gift to counterintuitive marketing: a Bag of Crap!

Maybe he or she will hold up a sign with a URL on it. Or read a URL aloud. Or give you some other instructions for landing everyone’s favorite worthless pile of junk. The point is, these BOC shout-outs could happen at any time throughout the day. Look away at your peril!

The party keeps on going at Shirt.Woot, where we’re offering cake-themed shirts at 20% off – including the return of the long-beloved, long-unavailable The Cake is a Liar! Not only do these shirts look great, but they’re great for wiping cake off of your mouth with. But don’t miss the festivities: this sale ends at 5 PM Pacific.

And whatever happens, we hope you enjoy the Bag of Cake. Staring at strangers eating for hours, just for a chance to buy some worthless castoffs: if there’s a better way to sum up these past 9 years of Woot, consider yourselves lucky we didn’t think of it!
