If you order 500 leds and the contest gets canceled, you'd be stuck with a whole bunch of them... just some typical bad luck... =P

Wait a minute, did you just call me a robot? Dear sir, I am a carbon-based lifeform and proud of it!

Errr...uh...normally I might try and talk my way out of this but all that is coming to mind is to say I meant robot in the 19th century sort of way that referred to compulsary service in the Czech portions of the Austro-Hungarian Empire...and I don't think that is really any better...
