IMDB DOES index just about every movie. they DO have all of the scripts. they also have user submitted quotes.

i challenge any of you guys to think of a quote (a real quote) type into the quote search and be amazed that it finds the movie and quote you were looking for.

Sorry, just being honest (and a bit frustrated that a couple of shirts just below aren't in the fog.)



You're not alone. I think this shirt is silly at best. I've already stated that the redundancy is a huge turn off. Someone came back with the rebuttal that it was part of the humor. I call it lack of creativity. I like shirts that don't create an feeling of "duhhhhhhhhhhhh"

Coincidentally, MODOT recently used the slogan "slow and steady means everyone will get there quicker" in an attempt to explain variable speed limits on our Hwy 270 in a radio commercial. It's hilarious.... ahhhhh. department of transportation resorting to nursery rhymes. I wonder how many engineering research time when into that study. Gotta love it.

So... wear a lot of navy shirts, or is it a comment about the dark shirts from AA? I tend to wear a lot of olive and cream- they tend to go better under dress shirts. Thanks for the vote!

Nobody says white is the lack of colour. White is the result when all colours are mixed together. BLACK is the absence of colour.

But technicalities aside, the derby rules state that you are only allowed two SPOT COLOURS. This means every colour, hue or shade used that isn't the shirt colour.

First of all, there is no way that imdb has "just about every movie." There is far too much out there for imdb to have it all; they themselves note that it is a growing project that relies mostly on VOLUNTEERS to provide information. There are plenty of films, tv shows, etc. out there that are not documented on imdb, and there is definitely room for error in the information they do have. I'm not saying that imdb isn't reliable, but they themselves acknowledge the possibility of error.

I really doubt that they have the scripts of ANY movie, let alone all of them. There are probably copyright problems. I've also checked around the site and found nothing about imdb having the scripts, nor any way to read the scripts should they have them.

This statistics page shows the information they currently have. They note how many projects they have plot summaries for, how many have trivia, how many have tag lines, etc. Note that I say "projects" instead of "movies" because imdb also deals with television shows, etc. They also give us the number of projects for which they have quotes. At the time of my writing this, the number is 44,823 with quotes. This is far less than the 379,871 movies released theatrically, let alone the 1,039,447 total titles.

The statistics page doesn't even list "scripts" as something they have. I'm sorry, but I really doubt imdb has any scripts.

Your sense of humor is wrong ;) Personally, I like the phrase because of the redundancy/obviousness, but I'm more into deadpan and absurdism. It's sort of in the vein of Jack Handy quotes from SNL, one of which goes "The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face." Like you said, a "duh" statement, but a monotone delivery of it really works for me. There's more here, although some are just kinda morbid.

Like 'em or not, the top entries are some interesting insights into what kinds of humor are popular.

actually, black is the result of all colors mixed together when dealing with paint, ink, etc, also called "subtractive color mixing" in color theory. white is the absence of color in that instance.
however in "additive color mixing" which deals with light the opposite is true and white is the result of all colors mixed together and black is the absence of color.

still, my question would be does woot print a white highlight (which would count as 2 white screens) making a second color a third screen, or do they just double hit the white base and flash it?

not that i really care, i'm just bored and really looking forward to getting this derby behind me.

Re: You Look Handsome Today



Ignore sailstud's rude remarks, those comments were definitely unnecessary. He/she obviously doesn't need this shirt with his/her already large ego. I really like this shirt. It is good to see a shirt promoting a positive self image. You call it an ego, i call it necessary with the way people look at themselves today.

What's to say the designer didn't use 2 (or more) different typefaces? That wasn't in the rules was it?

Bah, I just think in light. Fine, fine, you got me.

Regarding the printing of white - I figure they would just let the first screen show through. That's a good point though. As I understand it, printing on a coloured shirt requires an initial screening of white before the spot colours are screened. Couldn't woot just let white go and not count it as one of the six spot colours?

I read sailstud's comments and they don't seem all that rude. He makes a good point - the letters WOULD come out backwards in a mirror. The image wasn't flipped; the text was simply typed backwards.

With your undeserved winnings, THIS IS THE PART OF THE COMMENT POSTER NEEDS TO DELETE ASAP.



If your previous comments were as rude as the last sentence of this one, they were deleted. Since you are new, you may not know that woot gives probation to people who are deliberately rude on the forums. I do not agree with this shirt being reinstated, but there is no excuse for your "suggestion"

Shirtaday vacuums. I actually ordered the Circular Reasoning shirt, but the size ended up being too big for me. Then they wouldn't accept my return! I was hoping this would win so I could get a similar shirt and actually be able to order it in a size i know will fit me.

i'm not sure how woot does it, but at the print shops i've worked at white is always counted twice on dark colored shirt, especially red. if you use 1 white on a red shirt you end up with pink from the mixing of the shirt's pigment with the ink. the highlight white compensates for that.

Haxrox, this is the only shirt in the fog my husband wants. He doesn't like it as much as the Chuck Norris motherhood shirt, but we have better chance of buying this one. Good luck in the coming days!

Thanks, mjc! Interestingly, this design also hold true if you replace "except in a real race", with "if you're Chuck Norris"
