Time again for another march toward t-shirt doom! Discuss this week's life-or-death struggle for sales supremacy as chronicled on the Reckoning page all week long.

Here's how the Reckoning week runs now: every Tuesday at midnight, we retire the previous week's lowest-selling shirts and launch this here discussion thread. Tuesday around noon we'll post the all-new, all-early Reckoning Recon. On Friday, we'll juice demand and prime the pump with a little weekend reminder post. Finally, on the following Monday, the Day of Reckoning post sounds the last call for the Reckoned shirts. All of those posts will be linked below. Monday night (or Tuesday morning), it starts all over again. The Reckoning, she is a hungry beast...

We welcome three new veterans this week - Someone's Lucky Day, Helixtricity, and Vulpa Major. No more strong debut week to count now ...

Honestly, short of that God-awful "Ringbearers Anonymous" shirt (must be a meme that's alien to me), I wish I had a spare $525.00 to order the other twenty-four shirts. I haven't made a serious investment in wardrobe in many years - not since I retired - and the best thing about Woot shirts is that in addition to enhancing your appearance, they are great conversation starters. I've chatted up Baristas, Cashiers, Waitresses, Police Women, the cute girl at the shooting range, Farmgirl, Sandy from New Orleans, and at least six Hooters girls, all while flying my various and sundry Woot shirt colors from previous purchases. So, gentle reader, do NOT go gentle into that good night. Instead, buy some of these candidates, gain input into the Woot shirt political process, and party on in one of these beauties - you'll get a bargain AND make some happy t-shirt designer imperceptibly but assumedly happier.

I would assume so too; after the debut day, they receive a $2 commission on each sale. For the top selling designs, that can really add up.

Speaking of top-selling designs, is there a plan afoot honoring Nevermore when it hits a full five years? There are still a few folks in my circle who don't have a copy yet.

What are the odds that Nevermore will make it to 5 years? It's #19 currently, with 2 weeks to go to make 5 years.

There. I hope that was enough negativity to let it survive.

Congratulations, Wirdou! That's No Moon is the fifth highest Debut Day in the past year, fourth highest on Anvil (Consider Yourself Warned, Procrastination University, and Celebrate! Celebrate!). It's the third highest debut day sales for a Derby shirt behind Consider Yourself Warned and Procrastination University.

Of course, Debut Day sales don't count towards the Reckoning standings. Nous verrons ce que vous faites maintenant!

(Je m'excuse! I couldn't resist. Yesterday's thread both reminded me both of the passionate shirt threads of yore as well and of my fear for humanity.)

Haha! ... but alas, the theory of negativity seems to only work for Nevermore.

I will say this, though. STOP PROCRASTINATING! and buy one. Or more.

I want to buy this for a procrastinator, but would he wear it? Would he believe that he is a procrastinator? What to do!!! Procrastinate!

Is this negative enough?

Thank you Neuro! I knew it was selling really well but I never imagined it was on the top5 of past year debut sales. I feel really honored. I hope it stays for some time in the reckoning :D

I studied french at school (I can read french..but speaking it is other thing XD) but I never really enjoy it, even though being spanish was supposed to make it easier than english. I always liked english much more. But definitely it was a really amusing thread XDXD

Bah!

Way to go, science. You're ruining the reckoning too!

Ummm, actually, it's math that's to blame.
- Math, science, history - it's all their fault!
Wait - what does history have to do with this?
- It'll help unravel the mystery ...

It's a bit past 6am (8am Woot time) on Sunday ...

20. Unstealthiest Ninja 3
21. Thanks, "Science"
22. Procrastination University

So after the back-and-forth yesterday, only to wake up to find UnNinja ahead ... I'm amused!

Also, I think this post probably guaranteed Nevermore making it to its 5th year ...

Am I the only one who wishes they would do one last encore printing of the 'Give a hoot or die' with Woodsy Owl??? I'd pay good money to have even one of them... sigh.

You teach 'Time Management 201' well. - "When is it NOT okay to procrastinate."

As a side note, I did an artist count here - inclusive of collaborations and shirts from other sites, ten @fishbiscuit5, ten @kevlar51 ... and a dozen @doOomcat ... of just UnNinjas. So there may be some slight bias on which shirt I'll be rooting for come tomorrow ...

Haha ... nice attempt, but with the negativity equally applying to all of them, they will all advance the same too.

On a more serious note, with it being a four-way fight between 19-22, tomorrow might just be the most exciting reckoning we've had in months. Adding to that, next week will be a tough one as we have four strong bystanders this week.

So, would a last minute purchase of the "Unstealthiest Ninja 3" save it from dropping, or is it no use at this point?
