    Well back at DC8 I traded stuff like crazy because it was my first defcon. Now I'm a little wiser and know it don't cost that much. :>

    Honestly, that's about the real value of stuff like this - it's a swappable for other nifty TLA goodies. Somewhere around here I've got about eight or so unopened Fed shirts from various Defcons that I'm keeping around for exactly those reasons.

    A guy i spoke to at this years defcon had mentioned that he knows of at least one instance where a fed traded the shirt for.... (now im not sure if this part was true) about $400 worth of swag or computer gear or something....
    Assuming it is true, Barnum's rule applies :)

    Anyways, thats why i was curious if it was
    something that was really sought after by
    the community.... aparently not. :S

    Okay, so far we've got:

    - The uneaten part of my egg salad sandwich
    - Three Cheetos
    - Half a diet soda

    Can't lose out on this one... I'll raise *you* some sugar packets I found in my rucksack. Not sure where I got them exactly, but they were from somewhere adjacent to this year's con. One of them has a slight tear but I think I can get the sugar back in.

    P.S.: Can I PayPal this if I win?

    Hmmm good point. So all the feds who never get spotted still wear their Hawaiian shirts.

    Wouldn't a shirt that claimed the wearer was able to spot a fed, raise the status of the wearer among their peers, while one that claimed the wearer was unable to blend-in, in an undercover-sort-of-way, lower ther value among their peers?

    Have you tried ebay? I think they have some sort of auction system just for this kind of thing. Don't like ebay? I think there are others.

    I think the offers so far have been serious, which is, perhaps, an indication of how much the shirt is worth.

    Of course, there is also the fact that you are getting impatient after less than twelve hours of posting on a low-traffic forum...

    PS: The offers remind me of Adam McKay's Food Pawn Shop. "Gum isn't food."
