It works, bitches.

It works, bitches.
Like my new t-shirt?

The back has a graph of the background microwave radiation of the universe, showing data from the COBE mission plotted over the theoretical curve (equation included at no extra charge). The perfect match is a beautiful thing. Science works!

The cats gave it to me for my birthday. Those kids really know how to shop.

Love the shirt! Those kids have great taste.

And the entire graph will be visible under your brand new hot haircut.

All things come together :)

LL said...

I was certain that the back would say, "Work for it bitch!"

So do you have the one that says "Easy as 3.14159" yet?

dianne - true, the mane did obscure the backs of my t-shirts!

ll - I have the Mental Floss version that says "Simple as 3.141592" with a woman holding a pie drawn on it.

too funny!

wa11z said...

I was just looking at your boobs. What does the shirt say?

fermicat said...

I knew you would say something like that. There were an awful lot of people staring at my chest at the pub last night. I never knew there was such an interest in science there...

Great shirt. I'd like to get one for Magnetbabe.

fermicat said...

It came from the xkcd store.

LL said...

I notice you've been watching Dr. Strangelove too.

Oh I get it! 7x7= your age

wa11z said...

I'm sorry I'm so shallow, Fermi!! But you're 42? Wow...

TheWriteGirl said...

That is one awesome t-shirt! I gotta get me one o' those!

MW said...

Such language, Fermi! You must have fallen in with the wrong crowd, or something! ;-)

Happy birthday! (re: the previous post)

Have fun with Photoshop Elements 6.0 for the Mac. PDM certainly has good taste in birthday presents. I'll bet he was even aware that he might have to pry you away from HIS computer -- continually -- once he bought it for you. ;-)

Beth said...

Omg, that's a GREAT shirt!

I read your reply in the post below and I don't have a Flickr account. =(

I will say your meal sounds like the best meal I've ever seen in print. I want that!

fermicat said...

Thanks for all the birthday wishes.

Cool shirt! I may have to borrow that photo for my blog some day (as a public service announcement, no prurient interest intended...)

fermicat said...

It is on my Flickr site, ready for download in a variety of sizes...

tiff said...

Do we share the same b-day? Mine's the 31st.

LOVE the shirt. Most excellent.

magnetbabe said...

Awesome! I adore the geeky t-shirts, even though Deano won't go out in public with me when I wear my "talk nerdy to me" shirt.

I can't believe no one else has come right out and said it, but you have a great rack.

fermicat said...

tiff - mine's the 29th.

magnetbabe - you are now one of my favorite people. ;-) I believe that wa11z said it, although indirectly. But thanks!

Hey Cosmic Cat! I just happened to come across your blog looking for this t-shirt. Looks like we have a lot in common...I'm a science nerd, sci-fi geek, cat lover, and live in the ATL too! Nice to meet you, I'll be following your blog.
