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.
ramyb wrote:I don't normally feel the need to respond to you, but there is a clear methodology represented in the design. 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.
Darquis wrote:Put your comment back, it was good!
haha; okay. I just hate being really pedantic but I fell in love with genetics in 8th grade so I will ramble..
And to use this as a tie in to the scientific method is pretty weak anyway since rarely is the accepted method of science "steal someone else's data and use it to scoop their research."
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.
Re: Made of carbon
I dont see how this is related to the theme
Re: Atoms of Science
I just finished doing my calc HW and saw this
really good job, hope it gets foged
Siax wrote:I dont see how this is related to the theme
How is it not related, do you not see the carbon molecular structure there?
phantompeanut wrote: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.
Re: E=MC2 The Binary Einstein
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: Test Tube Baby
I have a feeling this is going to get rejected with the H, O, X, Y, etc. it may slip by though with how wmall they are.
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.

you could always resubmit for a more appropriate derby.

I'd want one when you resubmit in a more appropriate derby :D
Re: Show Off!
Lion-o!!! I have a Lion-o action figure about a foot and a half away from me as I type this. Best show ever.
Re: x = pb j
This is a shirt I can stand behind, and a nice departure from your usual style. Good job
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.

Yes geekfactor12, Thundercats brings back fond memories! I agree it was such a great show.
Cheers megsck! I loved their armored tank vehicle.
Great illustration and style!
Re: Dr. Badger made a Potion.
One of my favorites of yours. Really great characters and colors!
Looks terrific on the shirt! +1

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.

there are so many great things about that show, im just glad you didnt put snarf in there ;)

Wow, I never thought a PBJ could look better than it already does. Great work!
Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats HOOOOOOOO!
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: Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method!
*sighs* stop ruining the derbys.
Re: PreModern Contraption
This is pretty cool, but that guy is really creepy.
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.
tgentry wrote:What Is and What Should Never Be
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.
Re: 5 Second Rule
Love the perspective of the design and your bacteria characters. The pretzel looks good enough to eat too. +1
