Spiffy Darwin “Origin” tee shirt

Reader Peter called my attention to this lovely Origin of Species tee shirt. I know I’ve put it up before, but here it is again, and it has 40,000 words of The Origin on it imprinted by dye sublimation. That’s not the whole book by any means: as my friend Andrew Berry just found out by pasting the first edition into Microsoft Word, it’s about  153,000 words. Still, the shirt has about a quarter of the world’s most important science book, and is emblazoned with a picture of Darwin on the back, with his hair morphing into an ape face on the front:

It’s $34, and you can also buy Origin purses, scarves, and temporary tattoos (2 for $5). Imagine how much of a hit you’ll be showing up at a party wearing this (not!):screen-shot-2017-02-22-at-1-29-41-pm

    Would come in handy if your subway-riding companions were to run out of reading material.

    The tattoo is provocative. I am getting them for me and my kids.

    As I recall there’s been at least one tattoo like it on WEIT.

    Those are nice and tasteful. Though less so, I still prefer the one with Darwin in Che’s headwear under the words


    Less expensive by far as well!

    I’ve always been an Evolvefish fan.

    On a silver chain around my neck this one http://www.evolvefish.com/EvolveFISH-Pendant-p/jneck-evolvefish.htm I wear every single day. Simple. I know. (I am not much for necklacing bling … … so this is easy !)

    ‘Bout had it wholly and utterly yanked the ‘ell off that neck o’mine one workday BY a (public / state university [ “of SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY” IN ITS formal name !] ) dean’s secretary who disgustedly scorched @ me, loudly and in the presence of a multitude of colleagues, that I so needed to get the ‘correct’ one fish — and that she, from her church’s leader, ‘d be quite forced to herself bring that ‘correct’ one in to me just asap !

    Fortunately, I had had prepped and readied a verbal byte — with which to not only stop her up short but to also drop her jaw.

      Is paragraph 2 intended as a mockery of that woman’s speech patterns?

        That’s just Blue’s style, Craw.

        Curious I am, Craw: what about the speech pattern in paragraph 2 is that of mockery to you ?

    You mean it has a quarter of Newton’s Principia as well?

    At the risk of sounding inappropriate, but if I were unmarried, I would find any woman sporting that tattoo to be sexy as hell.

    Will be great for the March for Science, although NDT’s site’s shirt “Science isn’t a Liberal Conspiracy” would be good too.

    Thus, Ms Diane G: “HANDS OFF ! the bling, (insert Secretary’s name) ! Religionists including yours, STOLE this fish symbol from The Ancients. This evolving fish is a bagazillion years older than .any one. of your gods.”

    No mocking, craw. Just .finally. — after decades and decades of kowtowing to and shutting up and away from persons whom I feared ‘d retaliate upon me and my livelihood – abilities for my Self and my Boys — able I am to have for my Self … … A(ny) at all actual and true Voice.

      And a unique voice it is! 😀

      Thx for the answer, Blue. And brava! 🙂

    This T-shirt is a bit more succinct. https://www.lookhuman.com/design/338820-what-do-we-want-evidence-based-science-white-font/legging
    I saw it first on a sign at the Women’s March a month ago. Perhaps it is older.

    Oh my friend, I think you should look at my perspective, just for fun. https://th3platform.com/2016/09/23/my-final-refutation/

      For fun? It’s pure creationism, admitting micro-but not macroevolution. Go over to the creationist websites and push your garbage on people who don’t know anything about biology.
