... and as promised, Ocho:

Last wooter to woot: Narfcake
Last purchase time: Monday, February 20, 2012, 11:06:18 AM Central Time
Order pace: 12m 38.234s
Woot wage: $51.05
Woots sold: 8371

I probably bumped out another of my favorites now, didn't I? Which I guess isn't hard, considering I have 6 of the 8 in context already.

Thanks, narfcake and thanks to everyone else who helped support my kitty! Even if it doesn't make it, I'm really happy that it lasted so long.

30 minutes to go, and it's STILL a five shirt difference from 15 to 22. Amazing.

It's been one of my favorites for some time. Just bought a second one actually. Here's hoping that it makes a difference.

Yeah, so there's that...

"Making Bread" "Nevermore" and "It Came Out of Nowhere" all appeared in the 21 spot after the countdown clock hit 0. What's up with that?

RIP It Came Out of Nowhere. It looked like it was going to be Nevermore but someone did a last second save. Next week will be its demise.

I bought a kitty at the last minute. I have been holding out for an apron, and my hubby told me wearing the shirt would make me look like a crazy cat lady, but I had to have a shirt. No way to know if Woot will eventually get us the aprons we are all clamoring for.

Yes! In the last minute, Making Bread then Nevermore were at 21. Then, the final numbers come through and it's ICOON! It literally came out of nowhere!

Same here, was seeing Nevermore up until about 1 minute after the reckoning close. I'd have snagged an It came out of Nowhere if I knew that it was about to kick it.

The countdown clock show Hours and Minutes. I think the answer to your question can be summed up in one word: Seconds.

Hmm I finally have to make a decision on whether to buy ICOON.

I woke up this morning and when I saw myself in the mirror I said to myself, "I have Doc Brown hair today."

I should have reckognized the sign when I saw it.

Great Scott! How could we let "It Came Out of Nowhere" get reckoned?

Hey guys. Thanks for supporting "It Came Out Of Nowhere". I have been totally blown away by it's success over the past few years. I guess this crazy ride had to stop somtime.

Wow. I was expecting something weird to happen at the end. I was not expecting three different shirts to pop in at 21 in the last handful of seconds.

We say goodbye to a long-lived veteran. I expect next week will hold something similar.

Gird your loins, sci-fi nerds and time travel geeks. The unthinkable has happened: It Came Out Of Nowhere has been Reckoned! It had a hell of a run, including some exposure on late night TV courtesy of Chris "Nerdist" Hardwick, and it's been a perennial crowd pleaser. But tonight at midnight it'll bite the dust. Bow your heads, tip your caps, and pay your respects at the Reckoning.

And now a eulogy for It Came Out Of Nowhere:

You never forget the first shirt that brought you to Woot, and mine was It Came Out Of Nowhere.

The idea of my two favorite forms of time travel was too much to withstand. I had always loved Back to the Future, and my wife and I had just, a few months prior, become huge Doctor Who fans. So we bought two, fulling the pop culture shirt quota in our lives.

But this act of random sci-fi geekery lead me into the greater world of Woot. I now frequent the site every day and stay up to 1 a.m. (Eastern Time) just to see what the new shirt is. It may not be healthy, but it is fun. And I have It Came Out of Nowhere to thank for it. I am buying three more tonight before it's gone for good. The world of Woot may not be the same after tonight. Thanks Aled Lewis. Thanks Woot.

And now my goal is much more clear: The Raven must die!

Yeah, so there's that...

I've bought three as well - one for a friend, one for my sister, and one to give my husband a new one, as his old one is looking a bit worn. I'm glad I checked in today, otherwise I would have missed my chance to get it!

So, based on those numbers Narf, does that mean that the raven will finally fall?

Also, does that mean that even if "It Came Out of Nowhere" had survived this week, it would have fallen next week? Or are the numbers from 15 to 22 still likely to be in constant flux for the next few weeks?

I know that numbers can only do so much to predict how things will go, for all we know there could be a massive run on "The Binge" shirts for no apparent reason and it could charge up to first. So what do you think?

Considering that Nevermore was one shirt away from falling last week, it could fall before its 4th year anniversary too.

We started this week without much of a fight; look how it ended up. Likewise, there have been weeks in which shirts started close but never put up a fight for the rest of the week.

Farewell "It came out of nowhere", I feel like your demise comes at a time marking the end of an era at shirt.woot. Perhaps this is fitting.

It was a fun ride while it lasted!

Okay, so I have bought 10 shirts today (blanks included) I think I'm going to take some time off. At least until the next random shirt day.

Best of luck to you all on the next reckoning. I'll be watching the slaughter from the sidelines, popcorn in hand.

Yeah, so there's that...
