I LOVE THIS SHIRT! Woot ought to send one to Sheldon (Jim Parsons) on The Big Bang Theory. He constantly wears T's with things such as this.

I love the design of this shirt, but it seems to me that all it does is make a reference to popular science and then make it a cafe and burgers. I don't get it, it seems forced and a naked attempt to appeal to pop culture with no real wit or ingenuity or anything behind the design. Am I missing something?

In case you haven't heard, these physicists are pretty sure they found it, but please don't call it the "God particle". It is the reason we have gravity, nothing more. Physicists don't like that term.

I wholeheartedly agree. This one seems like an extremely childish attempt at humor, and not in a good way =/

I thought it was the carrier particle for mass?

Close, but not exactly. The best way to think of it is as follows:
The Higgs boson is the manifestation of the Higgs field, which is kind of like a cosmic molasses that exists everywhere in the universe. Relativity tells us that particles without mass must travel at the speed of light. This molasses slows certain particles down from the speed of light, which means they have inertia, or mass. Mass is important not only in gravitation, but at every level of physics. If protons and electrons were massless, and always traveled at lightspeed, atoms couldn't form, hence no solid matter.

The design is "Americana"-ish but so are Burger Joints, last I checked. So I don't see a problem there, really.

That said - I've never made a t-shirt design for Woot - much less gotten one published, so who am I to judge?


Yes to me it's like Americana- bison Burger + technology
Yes it's clear and funny. The sad part is that I don't follow Woot too closely and should have picked this up for $10 but I missed it. From my stats I buy 2 year and this looks totally cool. I finally bought one for me and not my husband weeee

The print came out fantastic! I really love the faded, retro effect. Thanks so much for doing such a great job on the printing, woot. I'm a happy girl!
