Re: Catching Fireflies


I can't believe no one has said this yet, so I will: eeeeeewwww, yuck!
This shirt is funny, but I wouldn't wear it bc I don't want a picture of someone "catching" their pee on it. Nice job though!

And technically, this is off topic since there are no real bugs in this picture....

hey man I'm not sure why you would see pee of all things, but if your pee is glowing, you might wanna get that checked...

How in hell do you see pee in that picture? What I saw was that he was catching stars (astronaut anyone?) which seem like fireflies in the sky.
There are two possibilities here:
1) My IQ isnt sufficient to see urine when its the obvious case or
2) You guys are bloody wackos :P

LOL.... I am referring to the quote by John Glenn. During his orbit he saw these beautiful glowing things and stated that his aircraft looked like it was surrounded by fireflies.

It was ice crystals (and possibly his own pee) and the glowing was the sun's reflection. So when I hear or see astronaut and fireflies, that quote is what I think of...I might be a bit twisted in the mind though.....

Here is the quote: "I’m in a big mass of thousands of very small particles that are brilliantly lit up like they’re luminescent," Glenn went on. "They are bright yellowish-green. About the size and intensity of a firefly on a real dark night. I’ve never seen anything like it."

I like this. So many shirts on woot these days are cartoon-y, and this is a nice contrast.
