Re: United for Science


What if Tesla and Edison were to kiss and make up for election day? Got my vote! United for science!

This would totally get my vote if it had a year more relevant to the men behind it, but the concept is awesome, nice work!

Love the shirt fishbiscuit5. My only issue is what you pointed out.. Tesla and Edison would have to do more than kiss and make up. They were mortal enemies... Maybe better would be Mark Twain? They were close friends! Imagine that pairing. I'd vote for it, but without Edison... Edison is a slimy thief

Oh, I know. I was dreaming of a perfect world where enemies could actually become friends and work together for the good of the order. Like real politics! ;)

Tesla / Marconi would work on a shirt too, though I thing a Twain / Tesla presidency would be a lot more interesting.

As much as I love the idea I'd only wear this shirt after a president shot his vice president. Or perhaps fatally electrocuted him.

Some rifts can never be breached.

Honestly, I knew while I was making this design it would spark discussion so I'm happy to hear thoughts and ideas!

This is a really "bright" idea for a tee, but I wouldn't want to buy a fictional political tee with a modern date (especially 2012) on it. Otherwise I love it.

I agree, the date on this is really going to limit it's wearability for what, another month or so?

Re: United for Science


Thanks for the feedback! Version 2 with an older date. 1882 is the year Tesla began working for the Continental Edison Company. Please vote!

Actually, Tesla and Marconi had quite a feud as well... being as how Tesla invented the fundamentals of radio first and Marconi used Tesla's patents as the basis of his own work.
