There are links to the shirt templates where you submit. There might be one linked from the unofficial rules link as well.

Tony Stark: I feel like you're driving me to court martial. This is crazy. What did I do? I feel like you're gonna pull over and snuff me. What, you're not allowed to talk? Hey, Forest...
Jimmy: You could talk, sir.
Tony Stark: Oh, I see. So it's personal?
Ramirez: No, you intimidate them.
Tony Stark: Good god, you're a woman! I honestly couldn't have called that. I mean, I would apologize, but isn't that what we're going for here? I thought of you as a soldier first.
Ramirez: I'm an airman.
Tony Stark: Well you actually have excellent bone structure there. I'm having a hard time not looking at you now. Is that weird?

Wasn't there one named Vulcan? Was supposed to be closer to the sun than Mercury. Then they discovered that their telescope had a fleck of dirt on it or something. ;)

We're usually off-topic, but today's a big day for the Woot children. We're busy in the sandbox preparing for the company picnic sand castle competition.

Okay, here's the brown shirt comp. I put the close-up of the lens in to make the point that it's a peace sign.

Comments?



Oh heck, I meant to soften the look of those nostril lines. Carp. BRB. Okay, done.

The peace sign isn't very clear - how does it look if it's the shirt color?

other than that, I think it looks grate!

Oh man... my internet has been on and off since last night (started around midnight). It just died on me and was gone for around 20 minutes (or however long it was since I last made a comment). I hope it can last another 10...

I almost said something about it originally. I've spent too much time in England. But since woot doesn't ship there, webfoot should be ok.

(glad I'm not the only person who thought of it!)

I'm waiting to see something I like. In theory, I still have a free shipping I'd like to use. I would have bought a LaPazz tablet, offered on both sellout and a wootoff... if I hadn't already bought it on geeks.com just a few weeks earlier. I might have bought the MP3 player offered earlier today if I had seen it in time.

I'm just a little more selective than most.

I would say so! Since January of 2007? Whoa.

I love my Sansa MP3 player(s) that I bought here. They work wonderfully.

in theory, would a free shipping coupon work for switching to overnight at shirt.woot? have any of you photo-choppers checked that out?

2 designs this week. Thanks for any and all votes!

Inspired by the painting The Spirit of '76, this design shows 3 of the recent revolutions in America: suffragettes, civil rights, glbt rights. All three march below a colonial flag.



The outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto) have all broken free of the Sun's orbit. They now have their swords & arrows ready to help the inner planets escape the Sun's tyranny.
