MSWA are horrible.
I entered once years ago.
Now I get endless calls, e-mails and mail.
AND I endlessly un-list myself.
But they don't stop.

If I get one more I'm going to the ombudsman.

At least you can always quit drinking beer...

I wonder if you are able to enter a competition by mail these days?
I challenge you to come up with a better invention than the bicycle

solved!!

Make a contest mailbox -- and then delete it after the contest closes.

"Max 1 entry per person per day."

This makes me think of the question, ok, so what is first prize?

These competitions are for the gullible because they give nothing and mine information.

It's long been that I ignore the holdin v8's or something similar at the hypermarket when you know that the object that represents the prize is irrelevant to what you would choose, were you ever to win, but your information is the specific prize.

So true.
And by law if you asked to be removed from a mailing list they are supposed to do so.
Which is why hate MSWA with a vengeance because they don't.

Even on the "entry" form there is a little itty bitty box you can tick.
They're a bit devious because they don't even put the box next to the clause about ticking the box.

I had thoughts of taking it to the head office personally.
Taking a photo of handing it over.
Should be proof enough for the ombudsman.

And if you win?

They deliver the car to Brett Armadillo on 666 Satan lane Rotten Nest Island only to find out it's a fake address.
So they call you only to have an arctic explorer from Poland answer the phone in a foreign language.
cześć cześć...

Even if you win - you probably really don't win.

Brett should be so lucky :)

I'd love to enter it for brett with the danger that it might actually win.

I never buy a lotto ticket for someone without putting my name on it as well (though it's so rare that it seems worse than it is) but for Brett, I'd do it.

The only thing I would never do is go to the moon on Apollo 13 but I wouldn't think twice about staying on the 13th floor, or walking under a ladder (while perusing the ladder). Black cats can only be for good luck :) :)

Appolo 13 a bit too risky? How about a visit to the Titanic?

It would seem that tourist dives may soon be a reality, but at a price similar to the cash winnings.

We've all seen James Cameron's film, so the real thing out a 7 inch window will be a bit of an anti-climax; Better to stick with a shiny new set of electric wheels.

Oh a titanic dive.

I thought that a tourist dive is where ppl come in to see the hobo's and collapsing shanties.

Rare because you dont buy lotto tickets for people Image
At least lotto is anonymous.
No calls, no mail, no e-mail from lotto.

I wonder if there is an under 18 clause on the beer entry form.
They can then send all the endless beer promo to a 10yo Image
