oh shoot, i have like.. no boobs so I forget to think about that. If I make it smaller, that should solve it.
Ill play around with the size and see if i can do that without making the figures too small.

I just dont get how alot of these designs are not getting rejected. "Keep it at a level you would expect walking into a grade school gym to judge a kid's experiment" i mean really if i kid had a tank full of dead turtles due to toxic goo or soap i am pretty sure they would not even let him be part of the fair. and then then we have had designs with oversized steam robots and the list goes on. i didnt do anything for this week for two reason. first being i had to work both friday and saturday night so i would not have gotten a chance to post till sometime sunday. second i had no clue to what i could do that would be allowed. I had some ideas but none of them could have actually be pulled off buy a highschool or middleschool student. Dont get me wrong im not hating on any of these designs. I just hate how you never know exactly what you can and cant do on these derbies and they seem to get more vague as time passes.

So i have changed the size as to make it more... boob-friendly But I am a hitchhiker though so I am afraid to resub and lose mah votes

What should I do? Will people really vote again if I resub? The image is moved up and slightly smaller... but I supposed I'd still have to resub the whole thing.

Help this hitchhiker! Advise me!

*edit* hitchhiker is what the spelling changer thing changed to the word i used for "new"

Just because astronomy = science does not mean looking through a telescope = science fair project. Could a project be made using astronomy? Yes. Is a project being depicted here? No.

if rainbows and clouds are Boot's depiction of a popular science experiment, I see no reason why his entry should be pulled out of the derby.

How does a bunch of squiggly lines and a crudely depicted equation = science fair project?

I hope Monday brings some sweeping rejections, because it's starting to seem like an "anything remotely related to science" derby and not "middle school science fair".

I see your point... However, the design seems to be two children from different planets testing out their science fair projects the night before, dreaming of the day when they encounter life on another planet. It may not be blatantly "science fair"-y but with a little thought, it fits into the category well.

"This week we want to see designs carrying on the tradition of middle school science with your depictions of the theories explored, science fair experiments themselves, or maybe just the chemical or physical processes involved"

This falls into the "theories explored" part of this topic. The theory is: There is the possibility of intelligent life outside of Earth.

It is also part of the research process of astronomy.

The rules do not state that a science fair project has to be depicted in itself.

Now, I still need some helpful advice! (see last post)

Ouch. Well, the crudely depicted equation was for the middle school level part as I think that's about the appropriate level of math. As for the design itself, the instructions didn't specify that it had to be an illustration of the project itself, rather ...we want to see designs carrying on the tradition of middle school science with your depictions of the theories explored, science fair experiments themselves, or maybe just the chemical or physical processes involved. So this is my depiction of the theory of wave harmonics, which is definitely a common middle school science fair project.

Saves us from what exactly? Lacking shirts with animals being horribly mutilated just for an attempt at a pop culture joke? Or not having a wardrobe filled with nothing but t-shirts with cute and fluffy animals. About as anti-hero as the friggin watchmen.

i agree gwyn- if it is supposed to be a 'science fair' design then at least the 'science' part should be reasonably accurate. The prism in this design is wrong!!
Ramyb stated 'I wanted to do a design related to prisms because that was the first science fair project I ever did'
OK do a design related to prisms but at least get the prism right and then let the 'art' and 'creative' bit flow from it.
just my opinion on of the 'science' part the design.

You don't have to resub for sizing for woman shirts. Woot will typically shrink the design and also places the design higher for the women shirts. Though if you feel the placement really needs correcting there's no problem with a resub.

If you resub you will have to start all over from scratch on your votes. It can be hard to gain votes back and sometimes having two designs up will split your votes. You can delete a design in the first 24 hours but still I'd only suggest a resub if you really feel this is important or will improve your votes. Always a hard choice.

Also if you resub make sure that either the image for the thumbnail is different or that the thumbnail/title has "resub" or "Version 2/Ver 2" on it. So that people know that this is a different version of the shirt and they need to vote again. =D

Good luck.

i like this idea a lot. however, i have an issue with the drawing of the arm that has been cut off for the starfish. a second starfish will not be generated since the arm cut off did not include part of the central disk.

I read that if you boil the potatoes first that they'll produce 10x's as much energy. And you can aggregate the voltage by chaining a bunch of them together in series.
I did read a story about a guy who used 500 pounds of potatoes to power a stereo.
So lighting a pickle should be a snap.
