Re: United for Science v.2


Version 2 for those who would like a more historical year. 1882 is the year Tesla began working for the Continental Edison Company. Please vote!

Version 1 in case you like this one better: http://shirt.woot.com/derby/entry/66192/united-for-science

This is a good time to plug the effort to renovate Tesla's last lab, so that it can be a science museum, and so more people can learn about Tesla. http://www.teslasciencecenter.org/

This is a great shirt, but Tesla had a huge argument in 1884 with Edison over money (He improved Edison's system and added controls) and they later had a huge rivalry over DC vs AC power. In '82, Edison was the star and Tesla was an unknown, but I love the irony of putting Tesla in front. (Bizarre wording used to avoid woot filters for the word F*I*R*S*T.)

Way better with a more historical year IMO, it still makes one a little queasy to see the two together on one ticket but it kinda works as an inside joke among nerds.

"Crazy, I know right? Those guys HATED each other! lolz"

That's why this combination is so electrifying ;) They energized each other.

I voted for both versions, and though I like most of your entries for this derby, this is probably my favorite! The colors work so great!

I'm curious as to why the ban on the premier ordinal number. Can someone enlighten me?

Because people have the ridiculous thought that it's clever to be the initial responder to a post with nothing more than said premier ordinal number as their only comment. And woot likes to mock common phrases.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Thank you so very much! Yes, I have run across many of said posters on other lists before. It may be a necessary evil, but a good trip through Roget's can always help.
