Re: Nothing Beats the Monkey V2



I'm wondering why this isn't in the fog, and my only explanation is that many wooters must have irrational fears of little dancing monkeys. It's either that or the phonograph--those things can make pretty ominous shadows in the dark.

I included a representation of Rosalind Franklin's xray crystallography experiment, basic double helix models, and then the up close molecular structure of the individual elements and base pairing. And considering that dancing flasks, arbitrary math equations and birds sitting on people's heads are all considered scientific method in this derby, I'd say I put in a pretty strong effort to make this on topic. And considering woot essentially said that putting a beaker on any shirt would make it on topic, I'd say that any tie to science of any sort should make things on topic this week. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assue you didn't recognize the elements in the design, rather than just choosing to ignore them.



They all just haters! Keep doing your thing, it's fantastic.

haha; okay. I just hate being really pedantic but I fell in love with genetics in 8th grade so I will ramble..

isn't this how Watson and Crick came up with DNA's structure - stealing her pictures? As well as Chargraff's ideas... I'm glad you also pointed out that you couldn't see her picture in the design (I couldn't either). I think I recall reading that you work with genetics as well so I figured you'd catch that. I honestly would think that was pretty otterific(referencing Franklin, who died young and didn't receive the Nobel..) and could see that working into the scientific method theme if there were other references to the milestones of DNA discovery...like the Hershey/Chase experiments, Griffith and Avery....you could even go as far back as to the time when they separated the study of chromosomes from embryology - and of course, the great Mendel. All of those moments required use of the scientific method. :\ This is a really difficult theme...

edit: after staring at it for a while though; I did see Dr. Franklin's design wayyyy in the background which I found unfortunate as I still wish she had received more recognition during her (short) lifetime so I always think of her photograph as something that should be very prominent.

How is it not related, do you not see the carbon molecular structure there?

That's science. This is supposed to be scientific method: a theory, an experiment, someone hypothesizing an idea, trying out things. A carbon molecule on a shirt does none of these things.

if only.......if only

I studied and tried t learn binary code, had it down for a couple of weeks......but if you don't constantly decode these things you lose it.

I really wish more people understood this +1

I don't know if this is 'on theme' or not but I'd just like to say I'd buy this shirt in an instant if it existed at this moment. Hilarious play on words

Re: from the hypothesis to the law




I think that it's both abstract and loosely tied to scientific method. A lot moreso than most of the shirt designs I've seen thus far for this derby.

Maybe a slight smattering of color either on the jelly or make it look like jelly got on the schematics, I think that would sell it even better, then it would also be applied science.

I think the way the letters are used would fit woot's limited use of text this week - the flipside is, this shirt could easily be rejected for being off theme instead.

Re: Taco Math



Love the shirt, and as many others have said I might need to go get some tacos now. However, the reason I'm writing this is that the blacksmith in me says knives shouldn't have right angles connecting the blade to the tang (metal inside the handle). It hasn't stopped me from voting and won't stop me from buying, just wanted to throw that out there

Re: Show Off!




One thing to concern yerself about is the size of this.

I just got kdeuce's Akkorokamui-san and I'm seriously contemplating returning the shirt because the size of the design wasn't at all impressive with the resize to fit into the printing area. I remember voting enthusiastically for it because it was placed lower onto the shirt and crawled upward in a lovely way.

I like shirts that utilize the bottom of the shirt, but with Woot's print area, it leaves for a good chunk of negative space before the design sits... and then the design feels compromised.

Sorry this isn't necessarily about your specific design... but I felt as though it were a little necessary to bring up the possibility of resizing disappointment.

We have the technology, but does that make it right?

I figured someone must have done this before but I couldn't find it anywhere else, possibly because the search parameters are so vague. If someone does know of a similar shirt please pass it along.



I enjoy this, but I wish it was in a derby that allowed words, cause I think it'd have more of an impact with this design saying like "Just because we can, Doesn't mean we should". But only cause More people would get it.

Ha, megsck never really cared much for that snarf character.

Cheers radiomode and kdeuce.

Thanks for the info CityVelo, much appreciated.
I hope you find a solution to your dilemma, because that is a very cool design.
