in a real rainstorm, these guys would rust... theoretically, those meteors should come down like hail and dent the heck out of everything.



I actually preferred loopy's interpretation far better than this one. Hers seemed more cohesive. Plus, it was one of very few entries last week on a light shirt, which was a bonus.

As much as I love the design, the robots themselves are uninspired. Now with the red giant+ white dwarf design out of the running, this is one more contest where Woot gets none of my money.

My first thought was that those raindrops fall in a really awkward path.

Then I figured they were probably meteors.

But if that is so, how big must those robots be? Meteors are kinda ginormous.

I really like how the shirt flows from left to right as you move down the shirt. Makes for a neat effect.

Another great print, cmdixon2! Congrats

I am so glad this design won something. I love the way it goes from one side down to the other. Creative, unique... Congrats.

Noooo! I wanted the other shirt

I do like this shirt design though. It's a very cute concept well expressed. I just really wanted the other one for my boyfriend.

You know how the number one rule of marriage is to never go to bed mad? Well I'm going to bed mad tonight because the red giant didn't print.

I have to go pout now.

there's nothing douchier than a signature that lists all the junk you've bought. NOBODY CARES.

I spent a few minutes yelling at the computer, "What do COMICS have to do with this shirt? There's nothing COMIC about it!" and then I realized that the condition was "cosmic" not "comics".

My bad.

So does the little girl robot have a doll, or a dead pet human?

...Sorry, that was kinda morbid =P

Oh so sorry. Too dark to see anything. Have not light amplification goggles yet.

Geeze - is there really as LITTLE non-black (or whatever the cloth color is) to see much?

Of course, I could just be being typically blind. However, in "real life" I've seen some quite truly spectacular showers and they are amazingly bright.

Thanks everybody who voted for this one!

I'm really surprised it survived. It lost a lot of momentum after the weekend and I was actually expecting Binkdrop's red dwarf design to make 3rd. It was a great entry and I'm sorry to disappoint those who stayed up waiting for it. Send all anger my way and leave those poor robots alone.

Goodnight all, and thanks again to all the voters and buyers!

Meteors come in all shapes and sizes. The ones that fall to Earth are generally very small because they burn up when entering our atmosphere. Most don't even make it to the ground. Maybe those are just small meteors (definitely plausible). Maybe the umbrella also creates an artificial atmosphere around their levitating space island.

At the very least, they must have some sort of gravity generator. Or maybe both the island and the robots are magnetic, and the poor things are doomed to spend the rest of their artificial lives stuck to space debris...

But I digress. Meteors can certainly be small - most are.

I should add that I should have used the term "meteoroid" instead. by definition, it's not a meteor unless it has entered Earth's atmosphere.

And I just looked it up - meteoroids are "sand- to boulder-sized particles of debris". So yeah... they can certainly be small.

And now everyone has had more than their daily requirement of useless knowledge. Sorry.

I didn't read the write up until I read this. and I must say, while I am NOT old enough to get the reference, I get it anyway, and it was worth the work to decipher it. Brilliant work, writers.

Yeah, me too. It took a few seconds for me to realize it was song lyrics. I actually came to the discussion boards to compliment the writers for it.

So, good job, woot writers!

But what makes them bright is the friction of a planet's (Earth's) atmosphere causing enough heat for the thing to glow. (See eHalcyon's post.) Since the only planet in the picture is causing their path to curve--a really nice design touch, BTW--there's nothing to make them glow. However, glow-in-the-dark would have been a nice touch.

Never be sorry for providing us with useless knowledge (trivia), as that is what makes the world a better place to live on.

The shirt is great and was my favorite of the derby.

I love being under an umbrella in a shower, that must be a special meteor umbrella, I think there is a guy in NYC that sells those.

To all those who said any variation of " Gee Whiz, I wanted the other one. " :

I feel your pain.

But not today. There have been too many Sundays for me to remember where I felt shafted, cheated, and very disappointed that my favorite of the derby missed printing.

But I, for one, am very happy to see CMD's shirt print today. It's the one in the fog I liked best. I like the flow of the design. I think the coloring is brilliant. And I think he used the printing space that woot offers very creatively.

So, good on ya, voters!

congrats CMD!

oh, yeah.......and I'm in for one!
