You're probably thinking twice about that now, I just saw how many votes you got. And btw, I should mention that I am severely jealous of how you can make something so awesome on a lunch break. I've notice all of the derby designers that get picked the most usually have two or three designs and are frequently near the top. Whats your secret!?

You can argue they "quit being the best", but it's not like they rolled over and quit. They tried and failed. Isn't there a difference?



Moreover, I'd argue the concept would make a successful shirt for, oh, about 2 days. Past that, the shirt wearer is no less a tool than the pats fans who gloated all season.

Unless you're Tom Brady or Eli Manning, you had nothing to do with who won or lost this weekend. I wish America was even half as passionate about elections as they are about sports games.

Heh, secret? You got me Panda. Till a month ago I couldn't pay people to vote for my designs.

Even at this pace though I still don't think it would possible for it to catch up. The other fog entries are getting nearly just as many votes. But if voters want to push it through, I'm all for it. I think it's a fun shirt I'd probably wear.

Yes. Please vote. But, you have to have purchased something on one of the woot sites (sellout.woot, shirt.woot, woot, or wine.woot) in order to place a vote. Once you've bought something, you can vote on all the derby entries that you like.

I thought that the rabbit would be enough to get the whole, run away, I'm quitting this fight idea across but I guess not.. I thought about adding a knight but realized that getting it in there with the 6 color max we have on the pictures would be hard, so I just sat back and hoped the rabbit could hold up on his own.



i still like it.. wish they would not have rejected it =(

Hey, it's happened to the best of us...that darned little white (or black, sometimes even other colors) just up and quits on you for no good reason! What good is it then? Complete PARODY of that company's ad...not like it needs explanation anyway.

TG, I like your ideas. you are very clever. Don't know if it is a winner. But it takes me back to my childhood well enough. Those years of nailing my brother with cardbord rolls in an attempt to best my big brother. How those times ended with such a beating. Aaaah memories.... I'd buy it.

wooterer wrote:It's not the power button. It's power-off button.

Here is the power button:



I'm curious why or how you make this distinction. Power symbols have generally been made out of some variation of the 1,0 combination for quite some time. This works for rocker switches, which commonly have a 1 for on and a 0 for off. It also applies to push toggle switches, which typically have one of a few slight variations on a 1 inside of a 0.

The symbol with the broken circle typically indicates a "less complete" power-off, or a standby state. Since this is how most of our electronics work, it is a more common symbol, today. If you looked at electronics 10 years ago, you would find the other more often. The symbol with the entire circle is, more accurately, the "power button", then the broken one, although they are often interchanged at this point.

I do not know what shirt.woot history or drama is around the power symbol, and don't care in the least, but to refer to that symbol as the "power-off button" and the other one the "power button" is not only strange, but completely untrue.

I know wikipedia isn't always right, but here, it can be helpful: link

wikipedia wrote:
IEC 5007, the power on (line) symbol, appearing on a button or one end of a toggle switch indicates that the control places the equipment into a fully powered state.
IEC 5008, the power off (circle) symbol on a button or toggle, indicates that using the control will disconnect power to the device.
IEC 5010, the power on-off symbol (line within a circle), is used on buttons that switch a device between on and fully off states.
IEC 5009, the standby symbol (line partially within a broken circle), indicates a sleep mode or low power state. The switch does not fully disconnect the device from its power supply. This may appear on a toggle switch opposite a power on symbol, alone on a pushbutton that places the device into a standby state, or alone on a button that switches between on and standby.



Edit: A little research before you make designs or random statements WILL NOT make people think less of you, give it a try.

I've actually bought all of your shirts so far, not that I knew they were yours at the time, but this one would be no exception. I think I like it better than the one you have in the fog right now

I am so not in tune with the sensibilities of the majority of woot voters. I haven't bought a winning shirt in what feels like months...



*giggles*, ya, I think I'm 2 woot derbies behind on this one. Should have tried the "graffiti" one. Go figure, inspiration strikes 2 weeks too late :P Either way, I was a little surprised when this one popped out of my noggin'. Not usually my style, but very fun none the less.

To "quit" simply means to stop - but as used here we are meaning rather "to stop when there is still a chance of success". Obviously Love isn't - and never will be - "dead" so if you give up on Love you are giving up when success is still possible. Those who vow they shall never woo again are quitters.

uh, so how does 'love is dead' have anything to do with 'quitters'? I'm going to have to agree with broomcorn, and say I don't get the connection.
