Re: Showoff



I'd buy this for the aghast expression on the third fishes face alone! I'm still having fits of giggles. I love the color choices too!

Exactly. You have to fish for something because it isn't illustrated. You can convince yourself that there's math in anything. If woot goes that route everything is on topic.

Ah poo. Thanks for picking up on that. Easy fix in the print file, should it go that far.

Thanks for the support so far, everyone!

Re: Common Sequence


The integration of the two objects at completely different scales was really well done, it looks so natural to be so unnatural. And I agree, excellent color choices!

Re: Conducting the Aurora


It took me a minute to get that those are musical notes in the aurora, I think if the stems were less centered it would be a little more obvious (though I could just be oblivious). Still, it's gorgeous!

Re: Snowflake



This is a really pretty piece of art but it's placed a little too high on the shirt piece for my liking. GMV anyways.

As an undergraduate, I can wear pure math shirts and nobody will care. If this prints, I'll add it to my growing collection of pi shirts this site produces.

I agree, though, a shirt needs to be clever, simple, and visually pleasing for me to wear it. I'm not the kind who wears a shirt reading "1/x: can't touch this" around campus.

I'm fairly certain said person is joking, based on similar responses in the other shirt thread.

At least, that's what I hope.

Thank you it is annoying when people don't get that.Phi is so much cooler than Pi. This shirt is awesome, and everybody should know it to a thousand places!

No text-only designs. Confused as to why RamyB's, "Schrödinger's Equation" doesn't count as text-only.

Of course it has. But the point is that there is a very successful (beyond all logical reason why) shirt that is the exact same idea. It has been done already. My (our) point is that this shirt lacks any originality in the context of the shirt.woot world. Your argument only makes the lack of originality argument stronger.

About the "no text only" rule, my guess is that he's going to slide because his text-only is in the shape of something related to the equation. I think it should be rejected, but I don't think it will be.

I don't get the green blob the bug is on. I know it's a leaf, but that's not what I see. The amorphous leaf combined with the 'schematic' outline drawing comes together to my eye like a duck wearing a green hooded slicker. I can't unsee it!



Oh nooo! I didn't see the duck/slicker until you mentioned it!!!

Re: Ian Malcolm's Chaos Theory



Self proclaimed "chaosatician" Ian Malcolm once explained the essence of Chaos Theory as a Tyrannosaurus not adhering to set patterns or park schedules. The unpredictability in a complex system can be written with a simple equation. The crime against nature that recreates a species selected for extinction can only end in chaos.
