Re: The Most Even Prime Number


All the prime numbers under 10,000--but only one of them can claim the title of "Most Even"

Re: The Most Even Prime Number


this shirt is great (and i would actually buy it!), but doesn't it count as a text only design?

Thanks for liking it

At it's heart, the graphical element is the design itself. Typically the "no text only" rule is meant to keep you from having a shirt where the only thing on the shirt is a joke, which isn't really the case here since the text is there for the context, not so much their meaning.

These kind of shirts have also survived "no non-incidental text" derbies, which is a stricter standard.

Anyway, I really think the design as a whole satisfies the requirement, and I really hope the rejectionator agrees

definitely took a lot of work to get all those numbers to line up like that. or at least for me it would be daunting. well done!

I am pretty sure this one will get through- this design comes to mind, which made it through a no text-only derby (as did my own Schrodinger's equation shirt in the same derby). The only reason I could think of that this might be different is that the number 2 itself might still be considered text, while the other two made a shape that wasn't just text, but I think this should still fall under the same principle of small parts making a greater whole. I'm pretty sure the no text-only rule is more like no slogan-only. Good luck

Lol, that's a much better way of putting it (over the blather I was going on about).

I like it but I'm not really into the gray/orange combo. Really cool idea, though.

Check out my Food design please!

Won't this be pretty impossible to print? I hear that though "Nevermore" is longlasting the print is actually not legible.

Should be fine; the numbers are well within woot's minimum halftone range.

I thought the main argument on Nevermore's legibility was the black ink on asphalt? But then I've heard of plenty of buyers quite happy with it.

I'm new to shirt.woot, despite spending plenty of time on other woot sites. I love this shirt and want it to be the first woot shirt I buy. Please everyone make it so.

I love the color scheme.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • When the moon is low, we can dance in slow motion and all your tears will subside, all your tears will dry.

Great shirt Kevlar, reminds me of the really nice Pi shirt you made for the text only derby. Shame that one didn't print...I really would have liked to own it. Hopefully I can buy this one.

I want extra credit the next time I take a math class for this...I like the color combo myself.
