Re: Experimental Fail




Love this one. Didn't think it should have been rejected. Could have potentially been a failed Middle School experiment.

Re: Minor Modifications



While this does fit the theme of the derby, it's rather ordinary. So not sure why it's garnering the votes.
The whole Pluto thing has been so overdone on every tshirt site, including woot. Nothing new...move along...

Re: Death by chocolate!



It's funny overall, but I think that the weird line effect going through the marshmellow men is what's giving this thing a low vote turn out. Maybe clean it up a bit and it will get more?

I dunno.

Rehashed, overdone...every thing you complain about in Ramyb's designs. Get your nerd on and come back with something new because this isn't "all natural baby".

Yeah, your line halftones aren't really working out. Try switching it to circles and see how that looks.

I agree. I really liked the line work in the pre-derby thread, but if I hadn't seen that I would have no idea what is going on here. Please, oh please, fix and resubmit.

im not really digging the "must be a real life experiment" rule, i think it will just produce mostly boring designs.

i understand what your thinking was, but i just wanted to point out that middle school kids are who TMNT was made for. They would be their core demographic, meaning that this particular middle school kid maybe is a SUPER TMNT fan. so saying that, i think its totally plausible that a middle school kid got it in his head that if he poured green goo (probably some antifreeze found in his parents garage) over his pet turtles they might turn into mutants. he definitely wouldnt win any awards in the science fair, but i feel its conceivable in the context of this derby that a kid might try it.

the joke here is that the kid thought it would work, but since this is the real world and not a cartoon, the turtles die. i think that is completely something that could happen.

Re: Experimental Fail



Seriously? You're looking at this radioactive mutation way too deeply. I believe that this shirt is a lot like The Prince Charming Theorem. A kid has seen something in a cartoon or movie and is simply trying to recreate it in his or her science project.

It's not that hard to imagine that a kid would grab whatever bottle of substance he could find and throw it in a tank of turtles in hopes to create is cartoon heroes.

I find it hard to believe that this rejection was nothing more than a cheap attempt to remove ramyB from this derby.

Ya who's to says he doesn't have those things sitting on a table at a science fair too. I think its ambiguous enough to not be restricted to a classroom.

Re: Butterfly Effect



Not super thrilled with this, but I thought I'd throw it out there. My science fair project in middle school was the rate of molding in preserved foods like twinkies and such... doesn't make such a great subject. But lifecycles always interesting!

Thanks everyone - tough one this week. Good luck!

Re: Just Add Love



I saw this experiment when searching around and thought it would be great to illustrate but you took it to another level with how you laid it out with the levels. Nicely done and kudos for staying on topic. This one was a bit tough this week.

Blending birds, while not a real experiment (hopefully), is an experiment based on the color spectrum, which is middle school level science.

The plants with tongues entry is framed around a common middle school plant growth experiment, presumably gone awry. But there's no indication that the purpose of the experiment was something beyond a middle school science level.

The "Hulk" kid seems to be working on some kind of generic chemistry experiment and nothing suggests that it's past a middle school level of expertise.

Whatever the hypothesis the girl kissing frogs has, it's not above a middle school level and she's clearly at a science fair trying to prove it.

All of those can be seen as middle school level science, whether real or imaginary, while purposefully researching animal mutation via radioactive material is not. Per the derby rules: Keep it at a level you would expect walking into a grade school gym to judge a kid's experiment. Radioactivity's effects on animal mutation, which is what this experiment appears to be about, is not at that level. Hope this helps explain.



I think you are missing the point here- this is not a mutation experiment. The turtles are dead. What age group would you expect to be Jatravartid enough to carry out this experiment? And for the record, erlenmeyer flasks and test tube racks are not what you would find in middle school science. And what do you think that green liquid is?

again, thank you for stopping by and sharing your feedback. I don't know where this accusatory tone is coming from with my design. I can understand if you don't like the design. That's fair. But as for this design being a rehash of my designs I think that's not a fair assessment. Has the premise of mentos and diet coke been done before? Yes. Did I approach it differently. Yes. I appreciate feedback but not in the manner you presented it. If you would ,like to have a real dialogue please feel free to PM me because I don't know where all the hate you are projecting on me is coming from.

It's really not. Man-eating plants didn't first appear in Mario games (hopefully the rejectionator understands that). The earliest I can think of was Little Shop of Horrors from the 1960, but I'd imagining they go back even further.

Others pointed out in the pre-derby thread the danger of a mario-related rejection and I changed around the colors to avoid that.

Re: Death by chocolate!



You're all right. i think the lines are a little too vexing, failed artistic approach. i may have to take several steps back, but i could have it resubmitted by tonight if you think its win worthy.

anything else while i'm at it? you're the voters!

Re: (Science) - (Fiction) =



This shirt design is really good. I feel it captures all the comments about this derby, which is to say, "This derby + realistic middle school science fair rule = "

Hope this shirt stays in! It's already got my vote.
