I won't bother going back further than that.



+1 internet to you.

Inconsistency is not a good thing to present in a debate. It makes your entire argument questionable in a huge way. The fact that you are writing this shirt off as racist is laughable. There's nothing wrong with it at all. I agree with many of the previous posters suggesting that the depicted "evolving from chimpanzee to human" image, in and of itself, is recognized enough to essentially become public domain, no one artistic entity "owns" that image, for Christ's sake. That is akin to chastising someone for drawing a picture of the solar system, if the picture they drew is somehow reminiscent of a picture that someone else drew 30 years ago.

tl;dr, This design is fine. The racism accusations are utterly absurd.

Also "if you have to explain a design to someone, it's not a good design", right. yeah. Subtlety is for chumps.

I really love this design! I mentioned this in another forum thread: Pretend you're the guest editor: Week 9 (Propaganda...FOR SCIENCE!)

...yeah. I'm not sure who originally said that, but obviously they're confusing "designs" with "jokes". I find that the shirts I own that I consider having the best designs are the ones that baffle the most people.

See, it's times like this that I dislike the new system of how prints are chosen from the derbies. I was really hoping this would print, and coming in 2nd, it would have under the old system. :-/

it should should say "SCIENCE" then "Human Testing Today" and at the very bottom "for the future"



行く is Go not today. So its more like "Human Testing, go" Japanese implies the subject all the time so I think the best translation would be something like:,"To human experimentation I go!" I think this might imply you are a scientist who experiments on people, which is of course: AWESOME. Nice shirt.

Couldn't agree more. Myself and both of my children were waiting for this shirt to print. To see it score second place and not print is a bit of a disappointment.

@meandsecoya, datls and Fausttt

It's kind of a bummer, but honestly, If I were calling the shots, I wouldn't have chosen to print this either. There were some really strong entries in this derby.I really liked the 2nd and 3rd places.
And I've gotten 3 e.c. prints since the rules change, so I can't complain.

If I don't get an honorable mention I'll try to find a way to get this printed.

Thanks for love, though.

Outstanding! Tesla NEEDS to be given his due after what that know-nothing Edison did to him. I want one!

If you find another place to sell this, or just want to sell the image for use as wallpaper, let me know! :D
