Folks, I'm really not commenting about the shirt in almost ANY of my postings.

Have you, by any chance, noticed that?

Primarily I'm pointing out the inane and fatuous arguments y'all are using to support either other people's previous postings or your own.

If you wish to adore this t-shirt, use as many credit cards and PayPal accounts as you can to buy multiples of three. "Each to their own taste" as the old translation goes.

But don't claim that your adoration makes anything even approximating "sense".



wow, you sound like a blast to hang out with. :/

Nope. This design simply doesn't sell itself on the basis of what the "danger" is -- and THAT is presuming that there is SOME sort of danger threatening. [to those who would argue that it has something to do with a large space object about to hit the earth, my next question comes up in the form of: how could an ecosystem of those four animals live on an island that small?] Again, nope: I've got no clue whatsoever as to the possible "danger" nor do I see anything anywhere in the design that even faintly identifies it.

Perhaps it is a "cute" design, but as has been recently noted quite strongly lately, (a) there have been far too many "cute" designs and (b) "cute" designs are not worth purchasing merely because they are "cute".

Lemme write one thing about "dangers": if it has never happened before, how have you learned about it being a danger? If it is the danger that no doubt some in this discussion are presupposing, how did these dinosaurs survive it and thus are able to recognize it now? Plain old incompatibility of concepts reigns supreme.

I'd also like to point out that in nearly every movie I've ever seen (why am I thinking of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" right now?) the only time you see someone with a newspaper over their head is in a futile effort to ward off rain.

Is the danger rain? For that matter (and at this point I'm being snarky), where did they get the newspapers?

Re: Yoshi Egg Haters

"Eggs can be very annoying if properly aimed and charging in egg form is quick and can hit multiple enemies."

Yeah, I LIKE that multiple "enemies" bit. Not that I think of you folks as enemies so much as, uh, targets, I guess.


Oh: note about this stuff not being important enough to write so much stuff about. Well, this thread doesn't seem to have even gone past two pages in length, but you REALLY ought to see the ones where multiple people are slinging hash around like there is no tomorrow (and, given the nature of woot, there IS no tomorrow) and the total ends up being 7..14 pages long (or even longer).

To SOME people (not me, by the way, I'm only a poor little old student of the logic of language and writing) these people end up writing veritable tomes about the merits or faults of given t-shirt designs and thus what is worthy of their writing on and on and on.

If you are honest, and look at how little of this thread has been written by yours truly, you'll quickly notice that I'm really small potatoes (sp?) to most of today's authors.

And the best thing of all is that shirt.woot! censors tend to clear out the thread before sometime in the middle of the next day and nearly NONE of this cr*p will still be around.

That ought to bring you just a meager iota of pleasure, I hope.


Note: about the being "out of drag" note: I'm wearing my "Happy Birthday Sputnik" t-shirt at the moment. And I've never worn a dress in my life (I'm 54 in a couple of days).

Nope, but your count is dead on. Of course, the notion that ostriches hide their heads in the sand is a myth, but perhaps dinosaurs did? Aha! that is why the head was preserved as a fossil but the rest of the bones disappeared!

Well, a long time ago when I had a decent reflux condenser and thus could get every single bit of mesc out of the mushrooms and did the same with the pot, cut the mix to 20 proof and added enough vanilla to make it palatable we had some absolutely incredible parties.

Let's see: there was the time when a small herd of cows wandered through the yard (this was the truth -- not hallucinated -- when you find cow patties late in the afternoon the next day and you KNOW you are straight then you have a tendency to understand what DID occur and what didn't), the time when one of the guys disappeared and we found him some time the next day hugging one of the corners of the house, and the "group button" showed a rattlesnake with the text "You can always drink more, but you can never drink less" on it.

edit: forgot to notice: there were train tracks bordering one edge of this guy's place and we'd hear the whistles and the rumblings on the tracks going back and forth from time to time. I loved that stuff. And the time that the local pueblo decided to have an all-night sing. There's nothing like being so blasted that you can't tell if they are just having fun or are about to go hunting around for scalps. Fortunately, it was just for fun, apparently. They've got one of the biggest casinos in the state now.

Ah, but that was 17 years ago.

BUY the b*gger or it'll cost you five dollars more when you realize that you really want it. Unless $10 is a real drain on your budget, you should always get the shirts you like when they are first posted.

But apparently Original Art = trace of google image #1, which happens to be the official art from Mario Kart Double Dash. But I guess since it only sold millions it doesn't count as "Used Commercially".

OMGoshness, people! ztfreep is hilarious! Why is everyone taking him so seriously? If it's a troll ...bravo to ztfreep, cuz he's obviously offending some by being overly anal and overly analytical about a shirt and how other people feel about it. If he's really like that ...c'mon now, that's priceless!

He reminds me of the character Sheldon on the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. If you haven't seen it, watch it once and you'll see what I mean. EVERYTHING has to make sense in Sheldon's world.

Woot, don't you dare touch all these funny posts and reactions! From all your humorous descriptions, I'm sure you can appreciate comedy gold when you see it.

So, ztfreep, I'm curious and hope you'll explain. Why was the guy holding onto the corner of the house?

Well...

There I was at 500 feet in a hot-air balloon and we didn't have a breath of wind from any direction. We were right over the same train tracks as up north where I used to party. Unfortunately, we were beginning to run a little low on propane. In a way I was glad just to be crew and not the pilot (who owned the balloon).

Uh, being over the tracks was a little bit... unexpected.

There's this little problem with hot-air balloons and trains. It really did look as if we'd have to land and deflate right on the tracks. Not only would we pick up an enormous amount of track crud but... y'see, trains don't stop for balloons laying out flat on their tracks. Even if they were able to see them they wouldn't be able to stop in time. It didn't matter if your balloon was worth $2,000 or $20,000, you'd end up with a WHOLE bunch of shredded rip-stop nylon.

Fortunately, we were able to get the ground line down to the chase crew and they were able to pull us over to the road and all went well.

This was just one of those little incidents that occurred during my 22 years of crewing for the hot-air balloon "Lucy" (owned by Gerry Graff of Albuquerque if you wish to verify this story). Each year, at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, I'd come up with a new pin design to hand out to the members of the crew. Certainly, they were only the 2 1/4" "Badge-a-Minit" pins, but I tried to come up with an original design every year, printing the individual crew member's name on it, that kind of jazz.

The light on the left is supposed to be sunrise coming from over the Sandia mountains.

Well, although the posting has already been deleted, someone took me to task for possibly being jealous of these artisans of cloth. It is true that the only t-shirt I've ever printed says "Hi! I don't remember your name either!", but I've printed and machined more badges than my arms hardly could stand.

My single favorite design has been on a web page now for nine years. I kind of think that it shows that I don't go around performing sketch-copies of Mario drawing and selling them as "original art" (which, in other forms, has been a problem with shirt.woot! lately). In fact, I think it pretty well points out that I've got no reason whatsoever to be jealous of the t-shirt designers. Not even the ones that come up with images that almost make you cry to look at.

If you happen to want to see the comp for my 2000 button, here it is: - Gerry won "Lucy" in 1986 and named her for the diamonds that go around her equator.

Even if you don't like it, I do.

I would just like to add for all the 3X big guys out there. As long as you cold wash and line dry your American Apparel Shirts, it should post no problem. I am definitely on the big side of things, long torso and 6'4" with alot of weight behind it. These are the only tshirts on a deal a day site I have found that even come close. Yes, if you dry them, they will shrink. But if you wash, then stretch and dry you will be fine. I have some shirts that have made it through 25+ washes and still fit fine, with no stretching of the original print. I am a long torso, and have the hardest time finding t-shirts, but with a little common sense, these t's will be just fine. Plus, I applaud Woot for including big guys. Find another major printer that has 3XL's for the same price. Woot! Woot!

Ha! Interesting question. I wonder what items made sense for him to buy, especially if they were shirts.
He said he was a guy in an earlier post. W/a gf, if you didn't catch that, either.
I just want to know if he thinks he answered my question to him, or if that was all an elaborate way to intentionally not answer me, or if he was answering someone else? Cuz, like, yaknow, it went woosh, right by me. But, also, too, however, I really do want to know why some guy was hanging onto the corner of a house.

Well, that's an interesting question. I 'changed identity' on shirt.woot! not too terribly long ago, not that it matters. However, in my former 'existence', I began buying t-shirts on shirt.woot! from the very beginning. I believe I earned my 'black square' before they began giving them out.

My collection is, as they say, unbelievably eclectic. PLEASE, no one give me any guff about bragging because OCSBD (Obsessive Compulsive Shirt Buying Disorder) is a terrible, incurable disease and, as a result the only way I can store all of the shirts I've got is in something like five 90 quart boxes but the number keeps increasing.

Or something like that.

In any case, my GF wants me to get those suckers the heck out of her house. I guess it was somewhere last summer that my son pointed out that I had - almost without paying any attention whatsoever - purchased a whole bunch more than $2,000 worth of shirt.woot! t-shirts. In other words, an appreciable percentage of shirts as JadenKalen has postings, but I never got past 1/3 the number of "quality posts" she currently holds.

What shirts do I choose? - anything I damned well please if I happen to have $10 that night or $15 bucks one of the following nights if it still can be purchased and I've come to need it and begin to have incredible bouts of tremors if I don't purchase it. For a while, I was buying a duplicate of the shirts I was buying for my son until he told me he was donating the majority of them to Goodwill.

My favorite at the moment is the mouse (or hamster or whatever sad rodent it is) holding up the placard begging for money. With regard to other people, the favorite shirt has been Cassette Taps which pretty well tells you how old they are. The shirt I hate most happens to be some sort of stupid Halloween thing that ought to be burned into plasma and the gas spread to the four winds.

Past that, you'll just have to guess, eh? The only thing is, folks, everything in this posting is actually true.

It's a really great design. Good work. You can just ignore the d-bag who stole all of his stories from Hunter S. Thompson, uses GF hoping that we will all assume it means girlfriend even though it's really secret rainbow-wearer code, and has obviously never been in an O-chem lab because he's making up glassware that doesn't exist. It's clear that he has absolutely no control over his real life and really just wants to die, so he takes it out on the people who are enjoying themselves and making good art.

Keep up the good work.

quality posts: 0 Private Messages tamtamayo

Wow, since there are any negative comments, I'll just say that it should be a maternity shirt for a few reasons.
1) the evolutionary aspect of it.
2) that you don't know what's coming, you're just petrified. Plus- as a TOTAL over-analysis, the dinos have horns to protect them from predators from above, as parents have biological tools to help them with their baby's needs. (I'm thinking about grapefruits, mostly.) We think of dinos as mighty and ferocious, and it's fun to think of them as ever being scared.
3), maybe just a different way to say 2, the generalized anxiety about anything and everything--all heightened when one is in the family way.

I had thought it may be Zozzles, but I didn't want to say outright. That's more of why I asked the shirt question. The opinion the user holds is that of someone who has an older account and has voiced his opinion multiple times on said old account. A newer, practically unknown account would garner more attention though, should they start voicing their opinion on the state of s.w. and the designs they print. I immediately dismissed that possibility it was just some newbie shooting off their mouth. It's also why I didn't bother contesting anything being said (not that I'd necessarily would anyway...).
