This is one of the more bohring designs having to do with physics/nerdiness. Much prefer some of the older stuff from Mr. Pyle.

Anyone who understands this shirt surely cannot suffer from Bohr-dumb.

In for one, for my physics-chemistry nerd daughter.

Agreed! I'm sad to admit that I'm actually somewhat offended by the language in this writeup - there are so many other creative ways of saying the same things without having to resort to this crap. Woot writers - y'all are usually so awesome - what happened today?

My shirts available on Teetrade and WootStalker!

What is the difference in the brands? This is my first time seeing a choice of brands for shirts.

I. Love. Physics. Shirts. The fact that the great and influential Niels Bohr is on a tshirt? That rules.

That being said, it is my sworn duty as a Man of Science to point out that the model of the atom pictured here is NOT based Bohr's contributions to physics. The diagram on this shirt is typically called the "planetary model" which is based solely on Rutherford's work.

Does anyone know the difference between the size/fit of American Apparel vs Anvil? I think from the sizing chart it says that AA is slightly longer, but are there any other differences?
Thanks, and also today's shirt is about as cool as absolute zero!

wait, didn't Neils Bohr create the Plum Pudding Model? I think these electron orbits were a bit after him.

The plum pudding model was created by Thomson.

The color says Pantone 429C which is gray

The illustration looks black. Can someone at Woot please clarify?

The shirt color is black (noted above the BUY button) and the two screen colors are listed as the Pantone greys - is that what you mean?

Hopefully that helps!

I was so excited to open my Woot! email and see the shirt of the day (as I am every day.) Then the horrible disappointment. Right there in the description...the name of God taken in vain. Woot!...truly disappointed.

"goddamn" should not offend you ... it's a lower case "god" which refers to any one of 1,000 Eastern religion gods, not yours, for the love of God!

Regarding the t-shirt colors ... that clears it up ... the t-shirt is BLACK, the printing is GRAY ... can't wait for the next 7 to 10 business days to pass!

Glad I could help sort it out, and thanks for the nice words on the design!

Nice shirt!

I remember writing papers on this guy. Other than a bunch of circles and dots and him being Danish the details are a little fuzzy now, but hey, I got the reference. :^)

I think the laugh out loud pun heavy on the text is the sacrificial bunt of the t-shirt world, sometimes the artist gets grief, but it does the job : )

That word offends the majority of people who believe in God (or gods). Of course, you're probably assuming that I'm a Christian, and it is therefore okay to tell me that I don't have a right to my feelings, or to be offended, or to be treated with respect. I must just be too uptight, or judgemental. Sigh...just one more person who says that it's "just a word", no matter that about 72% of us are offended by it.

So what is the difference between the American Apparel version and the regular one that constitutes the price difference?

This is the Nagaoka model. About the only thing it gets right is that the electrons are not in the nucleus, and that atoms are mostly empty space.

Beyond that: it's crap.

Most everyday normal religious people aren't offended by swear words they see on the internet. I would say that people who are so uptight and easily offended are in fact the minority.

American Apparel shirts are higher quality and made in the USA. They fit a little differently too, alittle longer and a little tighter neckhole for men and more form fitting/less boxy for women.

And there you have it. It is just another swear word, despite the fact that it takes in vain the name of the creator of life, the universe and everything. And, of course, by daring to be offended by it, I have shown myself to merely be too uptight. Well, what are you gonna do? "Those who hate, shall hate henceforth."

I mean no offense but I am curious in a scientific kind of way. You quoted a figure of 72%. I could accept 70%, 80%. However 72% is such an exact figure. Perhaps you could enlighten me as to the source of your research and where I might find it. Thanks.

Double checking facts is never offensive to me. (In fact, I should have done it myself, since the actual quoted figure was %73.) The info came from a Washington Times article in December of 2012.

I love the irony of this. Niels Bohr, like most of our great scientists, was an Atheist. I'm guessing 99.99% people scrambling to buy a "Physics Doesn't Bohr Me" t-shirt aren't offended by taking an unnamed god's name in vain. Yes, I am guessing you are Christian, am I wrong? I respect that but c'mon ... maybe the copywriter was referring to my "god" the Diet Coke god. You're only uptight if you automatically assume everything is about you and your god. And give the writer credit for using "Sh&* is fu*#@ed"

It is known that this is not the appropriate picture for the Bohr model, right?

Its actually a Rutherford atom.

Just sayin... I can't be wearing this around my department without getting yelled at.

Thanks, Woot and all commenters!

All else aside, I must say, the designer is, for one, a science-loving Christian, much like say, Francis Collins.

I'm happy to answer in more detail at nathanwpyle@gmail.com

I love God and honestly it's pretty difficult to offend me. Thanks again to the terrific folks at Woot for this one!

Kind of a double standard if you are going to consider the other only a swear word. I don't know but I bet less people are upset about seeing those two words on the internet than they are the one in question. So just type them all up and be done with good manners all together. Or realize this is a diverse community and try to consider feelings of others when you can.

Thank you for answering. Of course you must realize the The Washington Times is FoxNews in print form. However, it's a pleasure to keep our conversation civil and polite. Thanks.
