Sorry you learned it the hard way.
I would say, at least in my experience for the shirts (for women)...it's more along the lines of...
-If you like your shirts baggy, go up 3 sizes from your average t-shirt size.
-If you like them a tad loose but overall good fit, go up 2 sizes.
-If you want your shirt nicely form fitting, go up one size.
(I haven't actually gotten one in my own regular size, but I'm guessing it would be very formfitting/tight).

And if you're hitting the top of the sizes, I guess one would have to go to the men's section... likewise if you're way at the bottom, perhaps the kid's section?)

Oh great - I work at hardware store and sell these bulbs (and yes they DO come in red). Now all the customers are going to wonder why I'm cracking up when I sell them one of the red ones !

I typically wear a mens medium, they fit me usually not tight, but not baggy, just a nice fitting shirt that ends around the top of my pockets on my jeans.
However, when I order from shirt.woot, I get the mens large and it's basically the same, just a little looser, with sleeves that are a little longer and a little longer on the bottom, but nothing too much. I'm a little afraid to get a medium because I don't know how much of a jump it will be in size. (American Apparel runs a little smaller than most other shirts)

That's American Apparel for ya. It's cut for small people. The men's sizes aren't "no form". The sleeves are longer, but it is still nice fitting shirt.

I have mixed feelings about CFL's, while they do last longer than regular bulbs and burn less electricity per hour, there is the disposal and if one breaks it is considered a hazardous waste accident and in my opinion they are not as bright, even though they claim to be.
That said the shirt is kind of cute, but not in time for christmas (no I will not pay the extra for shipping, sorry woot you lose all my money every time you pull this stunt).

Happy Holidays to all.

I will no longer buy Holiday shirts that are so close to the holidays. I like to be prepared, my kids already have their shirts from other stores. Why can't woot put Christmas shirts a few weeks before, Halloween shirts, a few weeks before, etc. It's frustrating, I'm not paying overnight for a tshirt, I'd just as soon not have it. I think they really lose out on sales this way.

The part I don't get is, why is it so bad to pretend it's real anyway?...



I want to respond to a couple things without going into too much detail. Believing in global warming has some huge ramifications separate from the rest of the green movement, mostly on CO2. If it is believed that CO2 emissions must be greatly reduced to prevent the end of the world then this will negatively impact many industries while cap 'n trade becomes a multi-trillion dollar business. In terms of the individual, this will be equivalent to the largest tax increase ever (industries cost more to operate with less CO2 emissions, higher prices for consumers). This is based on the proposed goal of 80% reduction by 2050. The impact is larger on third-world nations, who will not be able to industrialize the same way as current powers, who used coal energy.

I also don't think "vast majority" is correct for pro-global-warming scientists, just majority. From one stat, the population is now split on believing it or not, 41%-41%. Also, I think the hippies are on the other side as in SAVE MOTHER EARTH FROM CO2 AND THE POOR POLAR BEARS TOO!

The population split doesn't have much bearing on scientist opinion, so I don't know why you referred to them as one and the same. Scientists study these things for a living, while your average joe may or may not have passed high school chemistry. That's why expert opinions are important, and on this subject there's nearly a consensus.


Anyway, I agree that this shirt is too close to Christmas. Woot doesn't get any of it if we spend extra on shipping so, I have to assume they simply think it's a good time for the shirt. Do shirts like this really sell better so close to the 25th?

Sure this has already been mentioned, but that's a white tailed deer - Reindeer are much different looking in the face, and in the antlers.

The part I don't get is, why is it so bad to pretend it's real anyway? Even if we presume the earth can support us for eternity, is there really anything wrong with trying to use fewer resources, and extend the life of those we DO use?

It's sort of like saying "well, these vegetables taste good, but I don't believe in diets, so I will only eat these pork rinds. yum yum."



hey Adder, since I can agree with jester I just wanted to point out that I for one am not anti-'green', but I am anti-government-regulation-of-climate-policies-that-aren't-scientifically-supported... Especially when it impedes on people's personal choices such as using incandescent bulbs instead of the fluorescent bulbs which not only give off an offensive light but ALSO CONTAIN MERCURY which still baffles me as to how anyone could think this is safe to have in the home, lol.

However nothing is ever wrong with using fewer resources and getting away from chemicals and trying to use more organic substances; I'm also a serious recycler. But, having been a student of environmental geology I can't accept that human activity on earth is creating a 'global warming' trend when no data exists to support this.

What's bad about pretending that global warming is 'real' is that you're basically admitting that you're ok with being ignorant and with accepting government propaganda (which -surprise!- is not a thing of the WWII past). Funny you would use the phrase "bizarre hippie conspiracy," because guess who the biggest proponents of global warming policies are: tree-hugging hippies who grew up in the '60s and who are now our politicians and statesmen!
Try putting two and two together on that one.

Again I am all for getting back to nature - but not for the good of the EARTH, but for the good of the PEOPLE that live here. We'll go extinct if we don't learn how to use more materials that are more harmonious with our bodies' organic constitution. Of course this does include taking care of our planet, but too often it seems that people are considered 'less important' than preserving the earth where we actually live.

I haven't bought this shirt, but really I think it can be taken both ways - you could wear it whether you actually are a greenie or not because if you are, then you're showing your support for the change in life as we've known it, and if you're not, then you wear the shirt to expose how ridiculous the idea is and because it's funny.

What you should do is put your arms in the shirt and stretch it by pushing your arms apart. I got a WL on right now and I will not stray away from a WXL from now on. I usually wear a WM.

Great looking shirt . I fear most of the orders will not make it in time for Christmas though. All of our Christmas orders from Woot are MIA, even with expedited shipping . Good luck though, this is a great tee for the holiday.

I didn't mean to imply they were the same, although it looks like it lol. It was just meant to be an independent stat to demonstrate one aspect of the lack of consensus.

Until Climategate it would have appeared to be a consensus because no major news outlets were covering the scientific debate, although it was still going on in many science journals and websites. Many reputable scientists and institutions continue to publish data and results to show there is no conclusive evidence of global warming, or that it is much slower than proposed.

On a separate note, disproving global warming is so easy a 6th grader can do it!

Related to that, urban temperature increases are linked to land development such as deforestation.

@RaveDroid thanks for the support, at least now we outnumber Adder!

I've got news for you. There's not much difference between the good of the earth and the good of the people that live here. Since we do live here. We've seen plenty of things we do to the earth end up screwing us up as well.

Besides we're not talking about denying yourself food and water. Instead its more like maybe you should reconsider that vehicle that can run over anything else on the road, or your 4th flat screen TV, or fresh fruit flown in from Peru in the middle of December.

Don't fool yourself about government propaganda and conspiracies, they exist on both the green and anti-green sides.

Has anyone else had problems with the woots recently. I've been wooting for a couple of years and always been happy with the results. It arrived quickly packaged well and for a good price. My last few woots have been less than stellar. If any of them were my first woot there wouldn't be a second. I'd gotten one that was broken before they shipped it and my latest the Krumpus shirt never seems to make it from being entered into fedex tracking. I've gotten a couple of tracking numbers but fedex says they have never gotten it. Anyone else had similar problems?

With regards to CFLs and global warming:

CFLs generally contain about 5 milligrams of mercury each. It is said that it is just enough to cover the point of a ballpoint pin. Coal-powered power plants also release mercury. In this respect, more mercury is saved from the atmosphere with the coal-produced-energy savings of a CFL over an incandescent than is contained in that very CFL.

Mercury can be dangerous, but a CFL is not particularly dangerous. If one breaks, just clean it up, wash your hands, and don't eat it. Keep in mind that we have mercury all around us that is not harming us. Older thermometers, thermostats, many electronics, etc. Just try to dispose of these things properly at a recycling center (check out http://earth911.com/).

Warming trends are not always easily observed in lower latitudes where we live. So far, strong effects have been most obvious at the poles. Take a look at any of the data concerning glaciers, the ice caps, the tundra permafrost... It is reasonable to argue over the causes, but it is difficult to deny that overall temperatures have indeed been on the rise.

PS - cool shirt

Well, some people say the globe is warming because temperatures in cities are rising, but if rural temperatures aren't rising, then it isn't "global warming", just "urban warming".

The other article was then to show that the urban warming could be explained by deforestation, thus disproving global warming completely! Not really, but it's a start lol.

Fun fact:

During Copenhagen, Al Gore said the polar ice caps would be completely melted in 5 years! Scary! However, the scientist's data who he quoted openly denounced him as misinterpreting his results.
