The OTHER though, is geeky girls trying to figure out how to be girlfriends (really, just trying to fit in at all because we are just as terrible in that department as the guys are).

I think some people are taking the shirt entirely too seriously. It is great and, as a girl, I would wear it. GMV and hopefully it gets back up in the fog!



But the geeks I know are really socially okay! It's like totally mainstream, you guys!

Re: Juice Spill


I'd like to see something similar but with maybe a wine bottle in the design. A map of Italy with a wine bottle spill. Or a map of Japan made from Ramen stains.

God is supposed to be omnipresent, so the "you are here" dots are everywhere on the map.

I like the design but it looks like you copied and pasted it on the tee-shirt. The blue from the square on the tee-shirt and the tee-shirt itself are not the same blues :-/

No worries then. I'd definitely say it to his, or anyone else's for that matter, face I just don't go to anime conventions. You can sleep easy now. Anyone with any concerns is more than welcome to pm me and maybe we can work something out that is of course unless you're relying on the anonymity of the internet. I'd never say anything I wouldn't say to the artists' face.

Re: Geek Brain Mind Map



I would have voted. Great idea, good design… BUT
So Girl geeks don't exist? I refer to the” Girlfriends” tab. I only ask because either I don't exist, or I'm Caramel Apples - YUM!. Either way I should start my existential crisis about now. I’m not normally picky, but seriously. You could have put “love” or “romance” and avoided this issue. Not voting.

That is a good idea! I definitely like the concept...but I feel it needs a little more context.

Not sure how woot will take it, they can be really odd with the "similar shirt exists" rejection.

Also, damn that fox is cute. =D

The image I used is from stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/photo/653075), has a royalty free usage license and the original image has in no-way simply been used as my submission.

I did use the outline of the parchment edge and a very plain map as the framework for background in my submission. I experimented with drawing different things around the continents as a skeletal structure and chose the outline of a T-rex as my favorite. On top of that, I added colors, shading and other details, as well as lines of perspective for my actual submission.

The final image only resembles the stock image (which has an open license) in the outline of parchment only - none of the design is found anywhere else. Even if the outline had been from copyrighted material, which it wasn't, the final image and its intent hardly reflects the original and would easily qualify under the Fair Use Doctrine in US copyright law.



Even if we ignore the "no photos" rule that is a woot standard, did you get permission from the photographer to use the image? The terms/conditions on that site specifically state:

Always ask permission from the photographer if you want to use the Image

* In website templates that You intend to sell or distribute.
* For creating printed reproductions that You intend to sell.
* On "print on demand" items such as t-shirts, postcards, mouse pads, mugs (e.g. on sites like Cafepress), or on any similar mass produced item that would contain the Image in a dominant way.

The Coordinates are for Bishop Rock,Isles of Scilly, which is documented as the World's smallest island. Hence the title "One Man Island."

Wow, this mouse has it all! A peg leg, a hook hand, a patched eye...

Either this map hasn't worked out well for him, or this is why he finally made a map! ;)

If the actions were labelled more accurately at places in the brain where they would be processed, I would be all over this. Usually I am not picky about details like that, but in this case it bothers me.

I should note, that I am involved with brain research.

In case of there is any problem with my previous submission I decided to post a second version. It is my initial design without the parchment outline. It looks like I have to learn all the Woot rules the hard way… Please revote if you like it!

mrwednesday wrote:I know that logic can be tough to follow because of having to think and all that, but that's exactly why the rule does apply. Not Kansas = Oz. Oz is not ramys 's creation. Not Kansas doesn't exist on a real map. This is a map of Oz however indirectly you want to believe it is. So no it is clearly exactly what the rule forbids and why it was rejected the first time and should be rejected again.



I think your equation isn't correct. Not Kansas != Oz. Not Kansas = Not Kansas. I am not in Kansas, nor am I in Oz.
And maybe I looked at this wrong, but I don't think the map is saying that Not Kansas is a place that exists and that is where she is. I think it's just pointing out that wherever she is, it isn't in Kansas.

For people who don't know, != means 'does not equal.'

I agree that the speech bubble is useless. And you know Waldo is lost because the map is upside down.

I love this one. The concept is great.. The hamster's tail is a little strange though. I think they have fuzzy tails, not naked ones like mice. It looks half mouse half hamster. I would definitely buy one.
