The description can't really be "decoded," you just have to find where the next sentence starts. Hint: THINK WITH PORTALS.


For those wondering what the description is:

In the entire history of video games, there aren't very|
|many that literally changed how people think. And|
|not just thinking in the sense of "where in God's name can|
|they have hidden the red key this time?" but thinking in |
|the sense of "wait, if I grow lungs I can live on land?"|
|Something like Doom or Quake or even|
|Joust, those are games we could all play in a|
|warehouse if we really wanted to. Maybe we don't have|
|flying ostriches, but we could dress up sheepdogs or|
|something. But when you're playing a game that literally|
|is based around the idea that you can make a hole in|
|the game... man. That's something that you can only do|
|in the computer. How could you walk through a warehouse|
|wall and then fall through the ceiling in the real world?|
|We all get a little bit closer to the singularity today,|
|ladies and gentlemen. Unless, of course, it sucks. Then|
|it's just a crappy game from some sellouts who need to get|
|off their butts and make a new Half-Life.

So wait.. this WASN'T supposed to be a combination of Portal and Transformice? Because regardless, I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

Wear this shirt: Narbacular Drop. You'll look like a video game hipster.

Don't Wear this shirt: On bring-your-daughter-to work day.

What this shirt tells the world: despite all of my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage.

What we call this color: asphalt

Hope this helps :P

Curse you Woot for selling out before I had a chance to log in for the day... It's a very clever shirt, both the design and the title. Kudos on the description as well.

I'll just have to console myself (ha, get it?) with the copy of Portal 2 that Amazon so kindly delivered to my door this morning...

I swear to God this the one day I forget to check shirt.woot at midnight because I'm too busy playing potato sack games to get Portal 2 to release. I feel like crying.

At least I can buy it at $15! Better than nothing.

I wonder if Shirt.Woot will ever sell this shirt again? With only 3000 of them being available today for 10 bucks I bet people will be selling them on ebay for like $25 each. If only they would be willing to print a few more the scalpers wouldn't be able to profit. I bet that at even if they raised it to 15 bucks & started reselling it tomorrow they would undercut the scalpers price & rake in even more sales. It's just too bad that no one else already had this idea. I think I'll email the Woot people & see if they will implement this crazy scheme of mine just because this is such a cool idea. In the mean time has anyone been able to decode that crazy write up? I saw a cheat code on the upper right side of the page but I don't see any place to use the code. I bet no one has figured it out yet because usually people like to post these things on the net when they are cracked. Please help me. Now that I've vented I think I'll look over some of the earlier posts. Sure are a lot of them. Maybe I'll find something I didn't know there.

You shut up!
I'm not going to let you undercut my eBay sales with these crazy notions. I used my 43 fake Woot! accounts to buy 129 of these in size 3XL (let's be honest here) so I can make dólares máxima.

As for the writeup, let me help you out, it decodes as follows:


When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Maybe this is just my bias rubbing off, but don't you think it makes more sense for it to be as follows?

"Cool Breeze" was a pretty quick sell. But if I recall correctly, the number of shirts printed in the initial run was also pretty low. I think "Say No to Scurvy" also went over well.

Woot printers are going to have to put in some overtime . . . at the rate it's going today, I wouldn't be surprised if it sells another 3000. Combine that with having to print both sides. Yikes!

Video game shirts aren't my thing and I've never played Portal, but Bass definitely deserves some kudos for coming up with such a popular design.
