I'm not really a science buff, do you have anything design wise for a person who has a B.A. in English Lit. with a minor in Linguistics?

I too have a BA in English Lit. and a minor in Linguistics, but I also happen to love me some science, so in for one.

Well, if I wear that shirt here in Kansas then I'll get to enjoy a good ol' fashioned stoning.

Ether?

A shirt trying to promote science that shows aether as an element makes me a sad Galapagos tortoise.

If it's good enough for The Grey Lensmen, it's good enough for me.

(Lest my reference seems vague, classic space opera is filled with references to aether, it being the substance through which light was thought to propagate throughout the universe).

Yar science! I love spelling stuff with the periodic table. Although it makes me sad that there is still no "j" on the periodic table so I can't spell my name which happens to start with a "j". *sadness*

I'll just have to console my nerdy self with this awesomesauce shirt.

*edit* I love the psuedo-science E aether bit. I'm in a PhD program in engineering but I appreciate the silly too. Lighten up y'all.

*edit again* ooh, my first quality post. Yay! Thanks woot peoples.

I want to love this shirt but the æther element gets to me even though I know it's hard to spell science with just the elements. An electron might have been better. Also the fact that the element names aren't capitalized just bugs me.

"Ether" and "Aether" are completely different things. Err, concepts, since aether was disproved to exist in the early 20th century. Prior to its expulsion from the scientific canon, it was as important a concept in cosmology and physics as gravitation.

There's always the Nevermore shirt.

It's over now, but the Poe vs Shakespeare cagematch had some great shirts. And the long since reckoned A Novel Idea is one of my favorite shirts ever.

This shirt style takes two "has been done before" styles (spelling with the P. table and also the "I [atom] science" and makes it look better than any of the ones I have seen out there.

Good job.

The e-aether bit actually is holding me back from buying the shirt. Why couldn't you just use the mathematical constant e? I mean...math is science, right?

Howdy,

Is your concern that some Woot, NASA, McDonald Observatory, or Silicon Hills employee (perhaps from IBM, Intel, Dell, AMD, Microsoft, Samsung, Motorola, HP, Sun MicroSystems, 3M, Apple, etc etc etc - FAR too many to name) might shoot you for claiming that aether's an element?

Sheesh. ;)

Adios!

Edit: Whoops! Almost forgot to mention that Woot (an independent subsidiary of Amazon.com) is HQ'd near Dallas. Like I said. Far too many to list.

It's a bit off-putting that science is now defined by chemistry. This is definitely more of a "I love Chemistry" than a "I love Science shirt".

Plus, Plato thought of aether as the fifth element, and the shirt has 5 elements on it, so it works out for everyone!

Same here. Now I'll have to constantly defend my shirt.

E for electron or perhaps entropy (a major element in my life) would also have worked for me.

Even Einsteinium, just with the world's smallest "s".

But even with Aether I think it's a Sage choice. I'm in!

My astronomy group will love it as we're always hoping for "clear sky".

Cheers!

I find it a bit off-putting to presume only chemists use the periodic table or electron orbital representations.

I already own several copies of the bird, but I did eye something Writer/English Major friendly in the side sale. So I nabbed that today.

I like the fact that ether is on the shirt. I think that one of the most critical elements of science is its ability to adapt and throw out concepts that prove to be wrong. Including ether on the shirt highlights how science moves forward. It is about the process not the 'current' answer.

Borrowing a quote from a recent SGU Podcast:

"Science does not aim at establishing immutable truths and eternal dogmas; its aim is to approach the truth by successive approximations, without claiming that at any stage final and complete accuracy has been achieved." - Bertrand Russell's "The ABC of Relativity" (4th revised edition).

hey, I want to buy this shirt for my brother who is a molecular biologist plotting to destroy the evils of the world and protect all from peril, but he lives in cali and I live in chicago. Is there anyway to get woot to send this shirt directly to him instead of me?

According to Dr Jones, names beginning with J in Latin begin with an I. Spell it in Latin.
