The final countdown: Who will win our $3000 Velocity Micro PC this Xmas?

5:15 PM on 12.20.2007·  2 minute read   ·  Niero


While we wish we had a couple of hundred computers to give away next week, we only have but one succulent Velocity Micro Quad-core Mega Gaming Orgasm™ PC to give away along with a free copy of Crysis -- and you have less than 72 hours to get your photo entry in.  If you just found out about the contest it is not too late to enter, but you're going to be going up against some pretty stiff competition. All you have to do is take photo of yourself in front of this page and post it on your community blog -- that's all there is to it.  To win the grand prize, your photo simply has to blow our mind. Interpret that any way you'd like, just don't hurt yourself (too much)!

Who's in the lead today?  It's hard to say.  Thornn, Dutch, Dexter, and various others have been pushing the envelope and I think we're going to see some insane entries appear at the last minute, like those ninjas that steal all those eBay auctions away from you. The hilarious entry above is from MikeMGN's blog, who talked his girlfriend into channeling Edvard Munch. Simple, but surprisingly effective! I laughed so hard I almost accidentally stabbed myself in the eye with my DS stylus.

In need of a strategy? Think outside of the box. Some contestants are doing series of photos, videos, and other tactics to bend the rules in their favor.  Due to the sheer awesomeoness of some of these entries we will also be awarding some mystery prizes to the top 10 runner-ups, so gather your loved ones and tuck your genitalia between your legs -- this is going to be a close photo finish! Pun intended, HAHA!  

Goodnight, and good luck.
