Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the universal unit of energy that is used by every living cell. This important molecule is produced and broken down for energy during metabolic processes in every living thing on the planet. Without it, no life can occur. Kinda vacuums that the price keeps going up...

*giggles*! I never knew woot put synonyms in for inappropriate words. "Vacuums"? Pretty good, but what about "inhales vigorously"? :p

Thank you YettaNother, boni, bvillarreal, jandt4ever07! Every vote gets you an ATP card for 3 cents off per mole.

*cry* I really want this to win. ;_; I'm a biology major and this would basically rock the universe if it got printed.
V-v-v-v-votedddd.

Thanks! Yeah, I was hoping there were more than a few bio majors on woot. Perhaps we have really patriotic bio majors that will be on tomorrow to vote! *hopeful*

Heheheh.... Cool. I have a friend who's a biology professor who would love to have this one. Great spin on the "energy" concept. :-)

I love it and so will my Bio/Chem profs, I think. I can always use the bonus points. (I swear I got a B instead of a C in Chem because I would draw little cartoons of molecules and such on my homework and tests.) GMV!

@ daedalusknight
Thanks! I figured lightning, nuclear and green would be heavily represented. I love the kite by the way, the colors seem to jump off the shirt!

@ katlin
Thanks for the vote, I knew there were some of y'all out there! ;)

@rdonley11
That's funny, I always got points deducted for that kinda stuff...I guess I should have actually answered the questions though. :p

Heheh... it's actually a hang glider (check out my shirt's thread to see a close up view) but I love kites too, so you can call it a kite if you like. :-)

I like the idea and it got my vote but it still kind of bugs me that the sign is right next to the ER and not the mitochondria.

Ha, very good! I had originally planned one sign for each mitochondrion with competing prices, but decided it would be too cluttered. That sign started smaller and up by the mitochondrion on the top right, but I moved it to balance it out and forgot to move the mitochondrion with it! I noticed 5 minutes before submission time and figured I could get away with it. Good eye!

Nah, it's a better analogy for the mitochondria to be the pumps at a station instead of individual stations... then the sign placement is perfect!
Still love this shirt... hope to buy it soon!

Hooray for nerd-shirts! It seems like there are plenty of chem shirts (If you're not part of the solution you're part of the precipitate), plenty of geology shirts (Geology ROCKS!), and plenty of programming shirts (There are only 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't), but far too few biology shirts.

@rglee129 Thanks for looking! I love the turtles by the way! What's everybody's problem with light blue? That's my favorite color!

@ABHolt I hope they do! Where do they hang out nowadays? Digg, reddit? We need a nerd signal like the commissioner has for Batman.....hey, next shirt design maybe? Hehe.

I'm an Animal Science PhD student...so close enough I would buy this shirt--probably 3 of them for my other dorky friends.

Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

Thanks majiksparkle, SirLord and Rfisher986! Looks like I'm not getting printed this week though...unless there are about 160 or so more science-loving wooters waiting till the last minute. Thanks everybody who voted!!!

My friend would LOVE this! Although you missed getting printed by Woot, if you get this printed anywhere, please let me know, OK?

I'm going to have to say the same. I'd love this shirt... are you getting it printed by anyone?

It is absolutely criminal that this didn't get more votes. Topical AND educational?? Show me where to sign!
