Nine what? NO ONE KNOWS. This is a poorly thought out mnemonic device.

Ha! I was just eating S'mores earlier this night while doing my calculus homework. Fate tells me I must have this shirt.

Now... time to indulge in more S'mores.

Ah, that's where the halving comes in. Halve a graham cracker in the beginning, halve one in the end (or more likely, use the leftover half). Thus, one graham cracker per smore!

You add HALF of a graham cracker twice, which makes just ONE graham cracker.

That's why it is divided by 2. You get half for the bottom and half for the top for a total of 1 whole graham cracker...not 2. ;)

I would completely understand math if they used less letters and s'more food pictures! (see what I did there?)

I was gonna say, this seems more mathy than sciencey...

it's a cute idea, but I was really excited for three science shirts this week :| talked myself out of 5-second rule, so I guess it's down to tomorrow.

The equation shows a graham cracker being divided by 2. I suspect that means the first graham cracker piece is the base and the second is the top. That being said, I am not a math major so don't hold me too it. :-)

I like the shirt but I believe that S'mores would be tastier, neater, and use fewer keystrokes on a RPN campfire.

Email service@woot - it can't hurt, and the shirts won't even be printed for a bit so you should be good to go. Worst case, they can cancel your order and let you start over (which would suck) - but I've had success

No, the smiley face is after the equation sign; so it has nothing to do with the left side of the equal sign. Besides the "(" equal the ")".

As this is the simplified form of the smore equation (after all, we don't deal with chocolate brand coefficients or graham cracker isotopes) the duration and temperature aren't included - so be careful if you attempt to recreate this experiment! Always be sure to wear the appropriate safety equipment.



I love you

I have to disagree with the use of the "". It should be a picture of a smiley face to match the rest of the formula. I'll be the computer for this one:

Unexpected CHAR_COLON on line 1, expected one of TYPE_INTEGER, TYPE_PICTURE, or MATH_EXPRESSION.

Smores aren't that good. The mess outweighs the taste by multiple units of weight.

I have passed those in stores so many times and been tempted by the way they look... but I feel like just one would already be too much, let alone a whole box!

Congrats art101! Now I want s'mores

If you use double parenthesis you typically use a bracket to distinguish between the two.

You're not adding the graham cracker twice. You're only using half of it for the bottom and half of it for the top.

Have you tried biting sideways? Instead of biting vertically like a sandwich and squeezing the goo out the sides, bite horizontally. The crackers take the load and there is less compression on the goo.
