In for one. I can only hope that the disturbingly fecal colour of the shirt doesn't mislead anyone into believing I am not royalty.

Well done, Artulo!

It is available the day after it's initial debut....actually, it is available at 12:01am the day after, to be precise. The only difference is that the shirt is then $15 at that point. On the reckoning page, the "shirts too new to be reckoned" (top right) are STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE...they are simply not yet in danger of being sacked, nor are they responsible for the sacking of those who have been sacked.

No no no, that's the tallest tree in the forest that you're supposed to be chopping down! Don't go misusing the herring!

I like this idea.

So you see, after all that trouble they went to add their respective five ounces together, they're defying physics anyway. And this was in the physics derby.

Although I suppose if they were free-falling under the weight of the coconut, then the coconut would appear to be 'floating'. But then the strings probably wouldn't be taut, and if they're falling (with style) instead of flying, that check mark has no business being there. They failed.



I believe they're flying into the plane of the shirt and the tethers each wrap around the coconut, so it shouldn't matter that they appear to be attached to the same side. The coconut is behind them, so it's closer to the viewer (since they're flying into the plane of the shirt).

I feel so dumb. I love that movie but forgot about the swallows-carrying-coconuts discussion.

Looks like African swallows. They don't have the deep forked tail like European swallows. ^_^

The two dimensional view of the swallows restricts your ability to see the coconut swinging freely by the strings attatched. Therefore, without a depth perception of the design your rebuttal is flawed, Mr. Delicious Greek Sandwich.

I guess this shirt doesn't come in a configuration suited for the black knight?

***UPDATE***

Looks like we've got it figured out and Weight Ratios will be available until midnight tonight. Then it will be officially retired. My apologies to Artulo and thanks to you all for helping us understand the issues.



Get it now while you can!!!!!

Any chance that Weight Ratios can come back on Classic for a day? I bought mine a few months back, and happened to be looking for it again (today of all days) to buy 2 for my friends... imagine my disappointment that I had missed my last chance by a scant 12 hours?!?!? I know I don't have a right to complain as only a semi-regular participant, but this shirt needs to be available... it's awesomeness is just to great to deny...

Aww man, knew I should have bought this shirt while I had the chance. I was debating on it because it was so awesome, but I really needed to save my money. But now it's gone Apparently I just missed it by a few days, too, bah.

Try teetrade.org, wootswap.com, or the random shirt trade center in the Shirt.Woot forum. You might get lucky and find it there.

Yep, definitely not swallows. It's pretty common knowledge that swallows have very distinct tails.
