    I don't know why you guys think this is such a good idea. Why don't you just go to the store (or B&S here on the forum) and buy some ties you like and then wear them?

    A still think a similar swap with wives would be better.

    Thinking about having a container delivered with all wives in it. Uhm, that's naughty.

    LOL after seeing what happened in TSB2 I want to say it's a bad idea...

    BUT I like the "quality control" on this. Hopefully some editorial control both on the ties and the participants can result in a more... pleasant... experience.

    I'll give it a go, I still really like the idea overall.

    I WILL be shocked if it actually finishes that fast - priority mail is 2 days usually for close destinations so at most 2 in a week is likely.

    Judging from TSB#1 half of the members were relatively close which means 1 day via Priority. I just realized this is holiday season so the mail may be a tad backed up. YMMV

    Extremely leary on this concept... as both tie boxes are disasters. #1 is moving slower than a snail(is it even moving at all?) and we all know TB#2 brings the lulz.

    quite.

    Sir, since you are here, how would you feel about a Psyllium fiber swap box?

    Any others?

    We already have 2 judges on board, any others?

    Ed, since you were so generous on the #1 box I'd love if you could act as a judge on this one.

    Meanwhile, I'm off to C21 et al to pick up some ties. Stay tunes for the "tie Boxes" thread where I document a stalking :uhoh:
