CDC Report



Yeah, that would be a pretty huge limb, especially since the artist already said it was specifically about TMNT. Plus the detergent was added later...it was originally a poison bottle.

I believe the primary colors for light are different than the primary colors for pigment (as in mixing paint).
But then again, it has been about a decade since my last science class so I could be remembering incorrectly.

You're correct. The primary colors for light are Red, Green, Blue. The primary colors for pigment are Red, Yellow, Blue.
Go fig.

As for it not being middle school material, I have never heard of teachers screening science fair projects before they are done. When I was in school, it was a surprise what your project was until the day you presented. This would obviously not fly from the perspective of a teacher, but for a student trying it and thinking it might work, this could totally happen. If we are looking at the end result and saying that's the reason it is not science fair material, then most of the fogged entries (which have already been defended by tgentry) should also be rejected for the same reason.



Though I do enjoy this shirt and haters gonna hate, I have to agree that all the school fairs I took part in required teacher approval before the testing began. Also, there is a rule in science fair that you cannot use vertebrate animals. However, for the purposes of this derby I don't see that as a real problem unless we are being totally serious about the topic, and when has woot been known for that?! Besides, if we are taking it so seriously then several other shirts should be disqualified for their unrealistic nature - potato mutants, frankensteins, cat landings, chocolate attacks, etc. So, go on with your bad self.

Might just depend on the school. I brought my dog in for a science fair when I was little, never had to tell them ahead of time. The person my "experiment" was based on was Ivan Pavlov.

I am pretty sure the rule to which you are referring is woot's attempt at keeping "cute" animals from preforming experiments and begging for a first place ribbon with big "puppy dog" eyes or bushy tails.

agreed.
Also, one of the better pluto-not-a-planet shirts.
Everyone's going to have their own opinion: someone not voting because of who the artist is? who cares, you don't have to like them. They aren't going to change your opinion and you won't change theirs.

There are definitely 7 colors here, not including the possibility of black having been used.

So why is this still not rejected?

Re: Experimental Fail



This shirt is both funny but also makes me sad for the poor turtles.

I think you should have gone with antifreeze, break fluid, or some other auto fluid that might commonly be found in a garage, since they tend to have those unusual colors where detergent doesn't.

I think this fits theme and agree with your comment (i believe on the rejected ver) that this is more plausibly a middle school or lower lvl experiment from a child who believes it may happen rather than an adult.

these aren't actual t-shirts unless they get enough votes. at this point it doesn't look like this design will be getting that chance, but I'm flattered you like it that much. you can purchase shirts from the "today's woot" tab or from the "reckoning tab". The reckoning has a larger selection of shirts that you can actually buy, where as "today's woot" only has one. Once you've bought a shirt or anything from any of the woot sites, you can then vote for your favorites, so that designs like this one, will be voted for and then actually turned into real shirts. good luck, and happy woot-ing.

Re: Experimental Fail



I for one will buy one if it wins. I think people read to much into it. What are we gonna start censoring Warner Brothers cartoons because those guys have been depicting animals getting killed since they could draw. Death is a natural part of life, it's not always pretty, fair or just it just is! I like Ramy's stuff and will continue to support him. Really people think about it!

sorry to get into this so late, but I always look at reasoning for rejections. The ramby turtle one has "experiments are not middle school level experiments;" another is rejected with "not seeing the science fair element"

These both seem to be applied inconsistently, and several of the high-scoring designs are science-y, but not necessarily science fair-y. as an example, is the ROYGBIV designs, there's nothing to tie the rainbows or prisms to a science fair as opposed to YAY RAINBOWS! or Pink Floyd tributes.

This has probably be hashed out a billion times already, but it's just my 2 cents...

ramyb wrote:I'm extremely confused by the initial rejection, and especially by the defense of other designs in the fog, but here is this design again. I thought that the concept was extremely clear the first time, but now I changed the bottle and specifically labeled it as detergent with bleach so there can be no question about what is going on in this design. I am also a little bit offended as a scientist that anyone would think this is a higher level experiment. We don't just dump chemicals on animals. This was clearly done with negligence and with no scientific method involved whatsoever, which is exactly what I would expect to see from the majority of students in a middle school science fair.

Thanks to everyone who commented and voted the first time around, hopefully you still like the design.



Don't feed the trolls ramyb, it's a good shirt and I'm not sure why all these people are herp derping on it but let the shirt speak for itself anyone who take the shirt for more than it's intended reference are just being Jatravartid. Let the shirt speak for itself. =) I'd be down for one.
