    Cool ;o) I’ve got an mail in my post box (real one, not a email) that I’ve won an car.

    With a complete drawing rules printed using little letters INSIDE email envelope (you have to find them ;o) and wordings like "<realy small letters>If you will send us winning number and will win, we will anounce that</realy small letters> <big letters> YOU HAVE WON A CAR </big letters"

    Also some cool rule – "In case if as result of error multiple people are eligible to recive prize, then winner will be randomly chosed" ;o)

    The only one thing I must to do to claim my winning is to pay 10x price for one or two books (total about 10-20USD for 1-2USD books ;o)
