Shame the shirt off is over!

Back to the good ol' self I guess.

Just remember to stay fresh and the secret shirt.woot greeting that everyone has seemingly forgotten!

Person A: "Boss shirt, boss."
Person B: "Yeah, I know."

EDIT: We totally need another song with that phrase in it. Is there a place where they keep all their old songs since so many of them are amazing!

As a Zelda junkie, I had to buy this, it's simple, yet effective, and completely awesome.

Congrats on the print

Can't bring myself to buy it based purely on mathematical principle. 3ma would be more accurate.

exactly, i didn't get it so i googled 'force cube' thinking it was some object in the game that looked like that and eventually ran across the triforce symbol.

But Triforce power grows exponentially! ;)

We don't know that. 3ma suggests that the power of the triforce is equivalent to the sum of the three individual 'forces' in Zelda. (ma)^3 suggests each force has a multiplicative (or exponential) effect when combined. I find it more likely that the individual forces in the triforce would benefit from synergy when combined, and achieve a whole exponentially greater than the sum of its parts.

Or maybe even 3(ma) . I realize that it still works out the same, but this way it emphasizes the force. Oh well... maybe the force equals one, and it is all moot. :p
(on the plus side, we're all in an even smaller group of people who get the reference, think that it's wrong, are whiney, and post things on the internet)

Yeah I just came in here to argue this point.

(ma)^3 = F^3 = cubedforce, not triforce.

I am disappoint.

I ain't signing anything! What? It's not that kind of signature? Oh. So that's what it is? Oh. I'm still not interested.

Sorry, but there's precedent. Tricycle, Triceratops, Triangle, etc.

It's only moot if force equals zero or the square root of 3, not one. Bozo.

Abstract problem solving? What about Caledonian crows? Apparently they are better problem solvers than chimps.

DOH!!! You are of course correct. *SNIFF*

I don't get it, but I never played any Zelda games in my life either. So that's likely why.

Square root? I can get behind cube root.

(ma)^3 bugs me as well but I'm willing to overlook it. The shirt is a least an opportunity to debate the magnitude of Triforce force. I can't say the topic has ever come up before.

You can?

3 * sqrt(3) = sqrt(3)^3

This does not work for cube roots.

I also really want this shirt, but just can't because of the mathematics.

EDIT: Any chance we can get a second edition (choice) of printing this with 3(ma) to bring the debate into the wardrobe?

This comment thread makes me feel things. Good Humor® is now applicable:

Exponential function is off to a party with natural log, root function, you know, the whole gang. As it happened to be, exponential is rather shy and struggled to engage with others at the shindig. It spent most its time wallflower-ing. Natural log, being the good friend it is, walks to expoential and says, "hey man, why don't you try integrating yourself?". To which exponential somberly replies, "It wouldn't make a difference." Then, all of a sudden, Whammy!! The left side of plus sign is torn off!

...And that's why you never forget the constant.

I'm more bothered by the triforce being on the right side than the 3ma vs (ma)^3 debate. It just looks weird. Besides, I already have the Star Wars f=ma shirt. Impossible to take another.
