CONTEST: THE THING FROM JAPAN - Win Japan's Finest Thingamabob
 
 Happy Sprinjtime you Champions of Science!

 On this, the first day of Aprind, I have news about the Podchamber's reigning fool - my idiot roommate Mark.  In a freak stroke of luck (for me), Mark and his grilfriend are taking an long vacation to the official Home of the Philly cheese steak - Japan.

To celebrate my euphoric home alone time, Blastropodcast is having it's first ever contest - THE THING FROM JAPAN CONTEST! Not an April Fool's joke, it's for real. One lucky winner will win a THING from JAPAN (surprised?) that Mark will purchase, mule back into the US, and MAIL to you. What thing, you ask? IT IS A GLORIOUS MYSTERY! But based on our track record, it's a safe bet that it's going to be weird. Pretty fucking weird, fucker.

HOW TO PLAY:

1.  Tweet a friend, Facebook message a friend, or e-mail a friend with a link to your favorite episode of Blastropodcast. Mention to them why you like the podcast (and also that you want to win THING FROM JAPAN contest if that helps). Do this as many times as you want to as many people as you want. They'll thank you for it later.

2. Send a screenshot of your messages to [email protected] as delicious evidence of your efforts.

The person who sends us the most screenshots WINS!

Mark will tally the screenshots and announce a winner in the 3rd week of April. Dear merciful ghost-nose of Tycho Brahe this is exciting! What are you waiting for?! FLY SCIENTISTS, FLY!

You are my Skeleton!
