It's official, my computer hates me for the love I have shown to Portal with my Xbox. As evidence, I signed in today and bought this shirt before 12:36; however, my computer being the jealous lover that she is denied my PayPal machinations. O she is a cold mistress indeed.

Well I have news for you, computer, I will buy this shirt; the cake may be a lie, but that is the truth.

Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Not sure why everyone's a fan of this shirt >.< it's a little cartoonish / childish for me.

Well, obviously if you've never played the video game Portal or understand the plot, the joke is going to be lost.

"This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS! It's hard to overstate my satisfaction..." Appropriate praise for this shirt! I'll be humming this all day. But I love this song, so that's fine by me!

The plot is very clever, witty, simple/straight-forward, and downright brilliant.



You linked me to the awards section like that's supposed to impress me...lolz. I know the game is popular, but I asked what the point of it was. It's my understanding that you make holes in the walls to jump through to get to different areas. That's basically it, right? Are you competing against the clock or other players? Do you die if you don't get from point A to point B? Are you trying to escape or just make the computer happy? It seems to me it's just a "puzzle" game where you do the same thing over and over the only difference being the difficulty of the puzzle.

The write-up, it hurts my brain.

Kind of laughing at the conspiracy theories flying about fewer sales for this shirt. Early sellouts happen. I don't believe that shirt.woot has anything against the diurnal. They probably don't hate the east coast. Yet.

It'll be for sale tomorrow. I'll go play and come back then.

You may buy it tomorrow if you click on this link right here. It will cost you *$15* instead of 10. That is the price you pay for procrastination!

You are armed with a Portal gun that you use to solve puzzles to proceed to the next level. As the levels increase, so does the difficulty, such as having to bring along a Weighted Companion Cube or avoiding turrets. Throughout each level, the big brother-like computer GlaDOS communicates by way of audio messages to motivate the player. As you progress through the game, the plot is slowly revealed, showing more sinister motives for the tests that are being conducted. Escape soon becomes the way for survival in the game, despite the promises of cake (and grief counseling) at the test's conclusion.

To give you a taste of GlaDOS' uplifting messages, here's a Youtube video of some of her sayings.

Great Marketing Genius Strategy Woot!

(Yes, I'll be buying in "the reckoning")


(for other wooters ...this shirt costs more to produce because it has to be printed and dried on two sides). Hey Woot, I'm 67+ and wear your shirts ...Do I get a "Senior Discount"? LOL

Thanks to everyone for "explaning" the shirt.

You mean.. sleeping? By your logic, if you went to bed before 1am, or didn't wake up before 2:36am you procrastinated.

Anyone notice this shirt doesn't make sense in the realm of portal... if this was a real portaling, then the mouse's hind legs would be poking out with his tail while his head and torso would be on the other side with the cheese... in this realistic sense, this mouse has no legs. Rur-roh!

Ok, so I'm NOT the only one that noticed/wondered about that...!

Maybe it's a PC mouse, they have no legs either...

and i was totally gonna post the answer, but then like 5 billion people beat me to it. :<
i think i'll do it anyway :P

In the entire history of video games, there aren't verymany that literally changed how people think. Andnot just thinking in the sense of "where in God's name canthey have hidden the red key this time?" but thinking inthe sense of "wait, if I grow lungs I can live on land?"Something like Doom or Quake or evenJoust, those are games we could all play in awarehouse if we really wanted to. Maybe we don't haveflying ostriches, but we could dress up sheepdogs orsomething. But when you're playing a game that literallyis based around the idea that you can make a hole inthe game... man. That's something that you can only doin the computer. How could you walk through a warehousewall and then fall through the ceiling in the real world?We all get a little bit closer to the singularity today,ladies and gentlemen. Unless, of course, it sucks. Thenit's just a crappy game from some sellouts who need to getoff their butts and make a new Half-Life.

I'm really glad I was able to snag this shirt before it sold out. Sorry to all who missed out, though.

If it's any consolation, I'm sure I'll be nodding off later this afternoon here at work from staying up late to buy it.

procrastination? Is that that thing that feels really good but can lead to carpal tunnel? If so it's worth the extra 5 bucks.

I'm interested in the genesis of this design. Considering the timing, was this a commission, was it supply push, collaboration, other?
