Well for the people who has never taken stats or something similar to it, you probably wouldn't understand this shirt lol.

Would've been much better if the axis (axii?) were labeled, at least.

This looked so much better on Eggplant. It makes me sad when woot screws with colors.

That said, I hope that it does well, because I feel it's the perfect line-straddle of wootiness and actual humor. So long as wooters don't overanalyze the fact that it's not an equation, ergo missing the entire point of the tee.

Oh wait, they're already doing that? WHAT ARE THE ODDS!?!?

I find it interesting the poster of the original comment uses one data point to make conclusions. When commenting on a shirt that is based on the normal distribution. Go look up the central limit theorem!

This woman got her B.S., M.S., and soon-to-be Ph.D. in statistics from great universities. Oh, and what, I'm one data point. Doesn't mean hernia!

this obviously was not made by anyone with bit knowledge of math because a graph can never curve back under itself as shown on the neck of the dinosaur. this shirt doesn't make any sense.

I have a neat idea, lets use a drawing of the loch ness monster as proof of mathematical knowledge.

Oh nevermind, you did that already.

This shirt is awesome...got one already. It is totally going to sell out by the morning, no question about it!

I LOLed when I saw this shirt...my room mate came over to see what I found so funny. She just graduated from UCLA in Business and Econ...she stared at the shirt for a minute and asked me why I found it so funny because it didn't make any sense to her. I then tried to point out "Normal Distribution Theory...look at the mean, stdev, etc." and she just stared at me a drew a blank. I tried to go to the basics to explain it, and she soon interjected, "...wait a minute, is this something about statistics???"

Some people claim that they actually can see a cryptic creature in the shadowy outline of the curves, others completely miss the opportunity... Just like in real life!

Of course, no one can actually know exactly what we're dealing with here without a z-axis.

Polar functions do curve and loop around underneath themselves. Yes, sure, go ahead and tell me that you cannot have a hybrid of cartesian and polar. But, as someone pointed out, this is Woot humor. And I, for one, as an engineer who works with statistics on a nearly daily basis, can find the humor in this.

...as is the plural of "axe" which makes statistics a little more sexy and dangerous if you think about it. Or not. I guess it depends on how dorky you really are.

I'ma just gonna tell my 6-year-old that it's a woot math shirt. He begged me to buy him "Nevermore" after I read him "The Raven", and he had a great time showing it off to his reading teacher. Can't hurt to try another subject, eh?

Oh, I understand the reference to distribution in the mathematical sense, but I definitely am not seeing the pun, if indeed there is one. All I see is a bell-like curve repurposed as the body of a sea monster. Tell me, is there more that I need to "understand this shirt?"

If this is just a "make a goofy picture out of a diagram" shirt, well, thanks, but I already have two of BreakfasTopo.

And much of the time in practice, the latter is in a cause-effect relationship with the former.

Wow, women aren't going to appreciate you saying that few or no women exist *who* understand the shirt. Watch those double negatives?

It's the first thing I noticed, too. I will buy no shirt that is not mathematically sound.

agreed! it's really cute and considering i work with a bunch of statistics nerds (aka actuaries) the normal dist reference wouldn't be missed... i just don't get the joke further than that. please, someone enlighten us.

I live in Reno so I feel the anger. But I think the Tahoe Tessie knowledge is within a 100 mile radius of the lake.

Ohhh new woot/aquatic monster/mathematical shirt idea.
