But what is the partial derivative with respect to, I ask? What is it with respect to!

I'm a fan of the show, but I really just don't like the shirt.

There's just nothing really special about it - I'm not a math wizard, but it doesn't seem very clever to me as the equation doesn't seem to mean anything.

They look similar but are completely unrelated whatsoever. The shirt is clearly depicting the wrong one.



i love it. you just completely marginalized this shirt.

Despite devouring TV shows like a T-Rex at an all you can eat lawyer buffet, I've never watched The Big Bang Theory. (geek cred -4)

107 episodes have aired. Should I start?

Yes, I just started watching after a certain basic cable station starting airing episodes and now wonder why I hadn't started watching sooner

number of people who would not buy the shirt because it used the wrong math symbols: at least 1, probably more.



I for one like the wrong symbol being used. It will get all the real life Dr. Sheldon Cooper's of the world discussing your shirt with you.

I love both shows. One's a traditional multi-cam sitcom with a live audience, the other is a single camera show with no audience. Two completely different formats, two very different shows, both hilarious.

The first "a" looks more like a "d" for a partial derivative. My OCD can't get past that.

I don't know, it's a bit too close to "bazonga" and I don't think
I'd be wearing a shirt that has that written across it in that location

Its a little too obvious for me. I prefer the kind of shirts that make people stop and turn their head all confused... then I think to myself, "Bazinga!" Its no Schrödinger's cat.

I don't know what to do with that partial derivative (lower case delta). Do I take the derivative of z^2 - i with respect to z? Is i a variable or imaginary?

So confusing!

As a physics major, I love the reference...

BUT HATE THE MATH

I would never wear a shirt with nonsensical math symbols on it for the sake of pretending to be math. This shirt is awful.

I hate you, shirt.woot! I swore, absolutely swore no more t-shirt purchases (with the noted exception for a certain raven, if it should qualify) and you go and go and do this.

After all the work I put in to resisting penguins.

I've been told the solution is to stop coming here, but honestly, the art work is often so great even when it isn't something I necessarily would buy. I still think some of the best don'ty make to a tee.

How cool is this! I've craved a Bazinga shirt for ages but they're all so...samey. Thought the maths was mostly just decorative though a glance over some of the other comments suggests otherwise. I don't care; I'm not mathematical anyway. Really, I struggle with addition sometimes. It's a bit special. But darnit I can use a semicolon! (Go on, tell me I've got it wrong again. I'll keep trying.)

The write up! That was- WindRunner- Yes.


I've bought a lot of tees recently...

Love the show but can't get past the equation. True physics has actually nothing to do with the math...would have been happier if it was just written in all proper Greek letters...I'll take my chances on getting it on random shirt day.

I'm not even a physics major but at university I was a chemistry minor and I, too, would never wear a shirt with a nonsensical equation. If I saw someone wearing this I fear all I'd do is shake my head.

I have to admit all the comments regarding the inaccuracies of the equation itself, such as incorrect symbols just translates in my head as "It would annoy the hell out of Sheldon" which just makes me love it all the more.

I agree with You on this also. Secondly I just think that show is an atrocity. My yearly Shirt.Woot purchases are dwindling down quick with alot thats been offered.

Agreed. Why couldn't the text be orange, yellow, white, or some other color that would really pop?

My niece is getting one of these. She's only 16mo, but she insists on Soft Kitty, and only Soft Kitty, as her bedtime song.
