This girl does, all the time. I'm also almost never sick; my body scoffs at germs and kicks their ass.

Or just stay up until 10:01 at night. That's what I usually do, unless I'm super tired (or don't care about anything in the derby).

It would be nice if shirt.woot sold as many as people wanted order on the day the shirt is announced--it's not like they can't just print up more of them--why have a limit and "sell out"? I'm sure magically they will no longer be sold out tomorrow when the shirt is $15!

Really no magic involved. that's how they roll... they print 3000 shirts for the initial run of each of the derby placers. That's the deal. Then, the day after, more are available at the higher rate (still no shipping).

Where's the crap?

I hope they pick your shirt for editors choice or something. I'd get it if you could submit somewhere else.

I'm gonna call BS on this. I don't know anyone, girl or otherwise, who hasn't envoked the 5 second rule at least once in their life. Although I will say, I am a girl and I always thought it was the 3 second rule. Maybe boys get an extra 2 seconds.

Hi Lifesource, I am a microbiologist and I disagree with E. coli. When E. coli is motile and expresses flagella, it is peritrichous. In other words, those long stringy looking structures that help bacteria swim are located all over the cell, not just on just one end.

Note that the rod shaped bacteria is slightly curved, and is monotrichous. This is very much indicative of a Vibrio species bacterium. I would call this bacteria Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera. Perhaps it is Vibrio parahaemolyticus, known for being a nasty pathogen usually contracted by eating raw shellfish.

I should know this, I am a vibriologist and I study both cholera and parahaemolyticus!!

Think outside the box, collapse the box, and take a sharp OMG PONIES!!ing knife to it.

I love the idea too, and was going to buy it tomorrow since it's sold out- and was bummed I would have to pay an extra five bucks (I know I'm cheap but please blame the economy not me) but now that you mention it, it does (from a distance) seem indicative of turd-like specimens and I will therefore not be buying it, thanks for making me aware. Goes to show things aren't always as great as they first seem.

Or just make sure to get in early enough to get a shirt before it sells out.

Not E. coli, Vibrio cholerae: http://www.trasancos.net/departamentos/bioxeo/images/bacterias/vibrio_cholerae.jpg

The round microbe is NOT a bacterium. It is a classic herpes virus: http://darwin.bio.uci.edu/~faculty/wagner/hsvimg02z.jpg

And yes, the bacteria (plural) on the shirt that has a chain of cocci (spheres) is multiple streptococci http://student.ccbcmd.edu/courses/bio141/lecguide/unit2/bacpath/plaque_SEM.html

here's some info about the 5 second rule according to wikipedia (apologies if this has already been posted):

The five second rule is a popular fiction regarding the eating of food that has fallen to the floor or ground. The origin of the rule is unknown. The substance of the rule is that if food falls on the ground, it may be safely eaten as long as it is picked up within five seconds.
There are many variations on the rule. Sometimes the time limit is modified so that it is known variously as the "three-second rule", "seven-second rule", "thirty-second rule", and "five-minute rule", among others. In some variations, the person picking up the food arbitrarily extends the time limit based on the actual amount of time required to retrieve the food. This also can vary based on the surface on which the food was dropped. In Russia there exists a similar rule: "Promptly picked up is not considered fallen".
[edit]Research

Although it has received little scholarly attention, the five-second rule has been studied as both a public health recommendation and as a sociological effect. It is yet to be proven.
In 2003, intern Jillian Clarke of the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign found in a survey that 56% of the men and 70% of the women surveyed were familiar with the five-second rule. She also determined that a variety of foods were significantly contaminated by even brief exposure to a tile inoculated with E.coli.[1] On the other hand, Clarke found no significant evidence of contamination on public flooring.[2] Clarke received the 2004 Ig Nobel Prize in public health (a parody award) for this work.[3]
A more thorough study in 2006 using salmonella on wood, tiles, and nylon carpet found that the bacteria were still thriving after twenty-eight days of exposure under dry conditions.[4] Tested after eight hours' exposure, the bacteria could still contaminate bread and bologna in under five minutes, but an hour-long contact increased contamination about tenfold (with tile and carpet surfaces only).[5]
The five-second rule was also featured in an episode of the Discovery Channel series MythBusters. There was no significant difference in the number of bacteria collected from 2 seconds exposure as there was from 6 seconds exposure. The moisture, surface geometry and the location the food item was dropped on did, however, affect the number of bacteria.[6]
Ted Allen put the rule to the test in an episode of Food Detectives, and found that bacteria will cling to food immediately. High traffic areas will lead to even more bacteria on the food.
Clemson University conducted research on this as well. "A team from Clemson University conducted a study measuring the bacteria levels on classic 5 second rule locations such as outdoor soil, the sidewalk, kitchen counters (especially porous counters – this doesn’t include granite), and kitchen floors. It may shock you to find out that it might be MORE dangerous to eat food that you just dropped on your floor in the kitchen than on a sidewalk." [

You'd be surprised. Most of us gals wouldn't think twice about picking something off the ground as long as no one was looking.

Although I'm not exactly your average girl, seeing that I bought this the moment I saw it. Plus I don't care if solid food has been on the ground. As long as there's no dirt on it, it's cool.

And Kudos to SeedUvPain, the design is flippin' genius.

Thank you everyone so much! I'm currently in Europe meeting my girlfriend's ENTIRE family, and this definitely made our holiday (vacation for us Americans.) Everything is 7 hours ahead at the moment, so yes, I am speaking to you all FROM THE FUTURE. Glad you like the shirt and I look forward to getting back and designing with you all once more. Cheers!
