FREE SH!T FRIDAY : Over 7 Hours Of Surviving History From History Channel For Maniac In Your Life


One of the great things about having a AA-level sports blog is that PR people, marketing reps and other hanger-ons always want you to promote media for them.

So BC gets free stuff from time to time in trade for promotion. Since random contests become boring, we decided to hold onto our swag until Christmas season.


For a single day in life we feel like the uncool kid trying to buy friends.

The Swag:  

Ready for 7 hours of crazy ass history that people actually survived?

Then it’s time for Surviving History from, oddly enough, The History Channel.

If you have an uncle in prison on death row this just might be the perfect gift this Christmas season.

The (Simple) Rules:

In the comment section, give us a really good reason why you need this for Christmas or a Jewish holiday, or your random religion holiday.

Leave a legit email in the comment form for contact purposes.

    I would greatly appreciate this gift… My reasoning? I spend exactly 7 hours a day navigating blogs and offering pointless, yet amusing, comments. While this will prevent me from littering different blogs for at least one day it will also re-arm me with futile information that I will be more then happy to divulge to everyone through my masterful posts. So by giving me this tiny gift you will be offering joy and happiness to a mass audience. So in historical terms (which seems appropriate), you are like a cameraman for a porno and I am a sleazy production company who can take a masterpiece and share it with others.

    Given that I live in New Orleans, I could perhaps resort to looting it from a local store after a natural disaster.

    But that seems trite.

    So instead I'll offer up the quivering lower lip and the puppy dog eyes to explain why this Catholic girl with a history degree working for a Jewish non-profit is already worn out by having to buy both Christmas and Chanukah gifts (can Christmakwanzakuh as a merged holiday be far behind?) in a recessed economy.

    Also, I'll offer cookies.

    I need this sh!t because who DOESN'T love free sh!t. Maybe I'm just your typical, too-much-video-game-playing-late-20's-blogger, but free sh!t is my nom de plume. Please. remember the children this holiday season by giving me some free stuff that i can inevitably hold over their heads in an uber bragging rights fashion! Kids. HA!

    I'm a big history buff, so I love stuff like this. I could watch the History Channel all day and never get bored. Surviving History would be awesome to have, but I would actually package it and give it to my dad whose an even bigger history buff than me. I know he would love this.

    I feel like I got strapped into a guillotine at my job but the blade is just too dull so they just have to keep raising it and dropping it, raising it and dropping it… I'd use this dvd set to learn new survival tricks.

    But honestly, I'd go with the chick with the cookies. Especially if she's willing to put up some Catholic school girl outfit pics along with the cookies. I can't beat that.

  6. […] I think these guys are giving away a bunch of free shit. [Busted Coverage] […]

    I am getting married in exactly 23 days from today. I need all of the advice I can get surviving the next 50 years of my male life. These videos would be a start!

    If you throw in some nudie pics of Melanie Collins or Ashley Stokke, I'll pay for the shipping. I can save you some cash.

    Well, my DVR crashed, so I lost everything I had saved on it, so I need something to kill the time now until I can reload the DVR. This would be perfect.

    History teacher again. Same reasons.

    I can relate to this epic series from the history channel… My story didn't make their cut, so I want to see what they deemed better than my mishap this summer… To make that long story short. I am sitting at the casino in Monte Carlo, talking to some Grade A… She loves me, she wants me, I take her home. The next day she invites my buddy and I to come with her to go scuba diving… I wake up 2 days later in a bathtub of ice with a scar where my kidney used to be. At least she left me my cell to call the medics! Now I can't play contact sports and I feel a void in the lumbar region.

    Besides that misfortune, I am trying to survive my finals right now… which if they don't go well, I will have a lot of free time after i get kicked out of school and start my own blog.

    I'm a full-time actor and what better way to study characters than to watch how our normal everyday society has come up with ways to teach psychos a lesson. Wait… who are the psychos again?
