Why do you people think Isaac Asimov corners the market on "The Robotic Laws"?
I hate the shirt, by the way. Its a visual explosion
Never wooting again. I've learned my lesson about inferior customer service and employees that illegally modify your signature (18 U.S.C. § 1029). Grow up, woot. (Edit of Mod edit: I am telling the truth about you modifying my signature to slander me. I am not attacking people. You dont qualify as "people" until you call me back and I hear a voice on the phone, then we can discuss how your employees are harassing me.) Still no response Since December 2010.

This shirt would probably be good for the planet of robots in Futurama, if they wore clothes.

Yay! Good story!

I really, really, really like the concept of this shirt. I would definitely like to own a shirt like this one - Asimov is literally my favorite author and there is very little that interests me more than robots. That said, the execution on this shirt just ruins it for me. It's just too chaotic, and the actual message and concept just gets lost in the tornado of metal on the shirt. I like the style of the art and the robot himself looks totally wicked, but there's just too much going on to hold my attention. Plus, for the third law, he's hiding around a corner? Isn't laying low somehow protecting his own existence? Shouldn't he be charging at the cops, guns blazing? Or jumping off a rooftop to his death?
Maybe I'm nitpicking because I like Asimov too much. I want to push the button on this shirt because I want to own one like it... But I can't.
EDIT: Also, because after reading through this thread it seems like not as many people read Asimov as they should - If you think you like Asimov but have not yet read "The Last Question", I cannot more strongly recommend it. It is literally the best short story I have ever read in my life. It's a 15 minute read and is available in full on the internet. Please search for it and read it. You will not be sorry!
