A) cool shirt.
B) do virus that infect RBC really look like that or only bacteria phages. The big scary spike seems unnecessary for the wimpy membrane.

Hey thanks for the votes and great comments everyone. I'm not a bacteriologist or anything like that so really the concept here probably doesn't make much sense in real life. I thought it made a cool shirt, tho.

This shirt doesn't make any sense. No virus in his right mind would attack a RBC because RBCs don't have any DNA or any of the machinery a virus would need to replicate itself.


On a serious note though, I really like this, but what if instead of attacking a cell, the megavirus was attacking like a person, or a bear, or a whole city or something.

Ooh, you could have one fighting with a bear in the foreground, and in the background a dead bear carcass with a big megavirus latched onto it and a whole bunch of small megaviruses crawling out of it's ruptured gut. Did I just go to far?

GO VOTE!! This shirt is the Awesomeest!!! supermegavirus

Great post, paulhep! I like the way you think, but don't believe disemboweled bear carcasses would go over real well at shirt.woot. Emptees, though, might be a better market?

This came out good. Textures really make it stand out. My wife loves it. She's really into anything biology or science related. Good luck.

Wow, neat design. I think that's a bacteriophage, though, not something that would attack an animal cell. Still really cool idea with the hardware.

Re: megavirus


I really like the design but I could never wear it since it's incorrect from a microbiology standpoint (as someone pointed out earlier). I'd just never hear the end of it from my med school colleagues.

Beautiful job nonetheless!

Seriously, submit another design with the same megavirus attacking a bear (or something) and I think you've got a winning shirt. I'd buy one.

GO VOTE!! This shirt is the Awesomeest!!! supermegavirus

Thanks everyone for the votes and comments on this one. I made another version of this based on suggestions so check it out!

Ovaltina, my goat THERE IS A SHIRT WITH A BACTERIOPHAGE!!! I would wear this just because bacteriophages don't attack RBCs! :P
