For those wondering...it's a marble!

splash doesn't look very realistic, but nice texture for the water

Coveted black-box Wooter.

Patrickspens not only has done a great job with capturing the look of the water mid splash, but that odd, yellow cat's eyes look that the middle of marbles often have.

Not two seconds before this shirt was released, I facebooked how I was unable to escape the physics. Damn you, Woot, I know I have fluid dynamics homework to do! You don't need to publish a shirt to remind me of that

But still, this is a gorgeous design and I'm probably going to get it anyway

Judging by the displaced water, I'm venturing to say that the marble entered the surface at a velocity higher than that of just gravity.

The write-up for this is absolutely gorgeous. It makes me wish I hadn't lost all my marbles ages ago.

You know what I mean. XD

As I understand it, gravity is a force, which can cause an acceleration on an object such as a marble, and the acceleration can cause the marble to increase in velocity until it reaches terminal velocity... are you saying it appears to have entered the water at a velocity greater than terminal velocity?

I think it would be better if the design was larger. It doesn't take up enough of the shirt for my taste

This write up makes me think of Frog and Toad! Simply briliant. Once again I wish that somehow the write up was ON the shirt...

I generally don't comment on non-product things here, but I have to agree with the others… the copy here was absolutely bril.

Woot shirts are sucking a little less than usual lately.

Its cute I suppose but A) it has no math in it at all and B) it is not physically accurate, that is, if we are to treat the marble he has drawn as it appears then the amount of splash is inaccurate AND the distance for which it has traveled in the water compared to the height of the splash is inaccurate. Doesn't really make any sense, but I guess its nice otherwise, just a bit disappointing considering the limitless possibility for math-themed shirts.

I so love the colors. And the water. And the marble. ...I guess I love all of it.

The write-up for this one is so good that it actually brought me out of my lethargy to write this comment. Good job, Woot writer(s).

I know it's a marble, but it reminds me of Metroid.

Patrickspens is Woot derby consistency. The water, the marble, and the halftone shading are all perfect.

I only read the write-up because of the comment from yptrumpet. Good gravy, that's a great write up. I think I'm teraing up a bit.

This shirt is pretty cool, but no offense, the story should be made into an illustrated, children's book. You're wasting your talent on SHIRTS!?!??? Go be a famous children's author, that write-up almost made me tear up and I'm a jerk. If this is made into a book, I'll be the first to buy it, no BS.

I'm not sure what I was saying now, actually. Note to self ... alcohol does impair the brain.

Might it have been accelerated by a throw or shot out of a marble gun?!?
