Win History’s American Originals DVD megaset

The History Channel has offered a free DVD set to a reality blurred reader, and I’m happy to pass that along. It’s the American Originals megaset, which has a retail value of $99 and includes season one of Ice Road Truckers, season one of Ax Men, season one of Tougher in Alaska, and eight episodes of Dangerous Missions. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift; perhaps it’d make a good belated Father’s Day present if you suck and forgot the holiday?

To win, simply leave a comment here about why you want the DVD set. I’ll randomly pick one winner Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. ET. No purchase necessary, et cetera; just have a working e.mail address in your profile if you’re logging in using disqus.com or Twitter. (And don’t forget: to get comments approved, you need to post under your real name. If your comments aren’t being approved, check the quick and easy instructions here.)
