Nerdy T-Shirt Designs
Often in life, some things need an explanation, including nerdy shirt designs.. Here are a select few explanations :) more will be added as more designs are unveiled.
|I'm a pi rate.. Arrrrr||A play on words (play on differential operators?..) of pi and the change in something over time, or d/dt.. also known as a rate..|
So the change of pi over the change of time, thus pi-rate. (Pirate :P)
|Schrodinger's Cat||Schrodinger's cat was a thought experiment by the famous physicist Erwin Schrodinger about quantum states and how a cat, in a box with 50/50 chance of death is both dead and alive until some outside observer opens the box and collapses the wave function.||Click Here|
|Welcome to entropy burgers!||Another play on words and definitions.. This one relates to "taking your order" as in removing order, aka, entropy.|
"mannn, the service here is getting more disorderly all the time!"
|One ring to rule them all||It's a Lord of The Rings joke comparing the "One Ring" to benzene, a very common organic molecule.|
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
– J. R. R. Tolkien
|What's your sine?||What's your sine, playing upon the common phrase of "what's your sign". The sine of pi/2 radians is 1!||Click Here|
|Canadium - the new element||Its about time eh? Canadium, the element that defines a Canadian. From polar bear riding to work to dog-sledding back to your igloo, this element defines Canadians perfectly.|
Oh, 71 as in July 1st, 186.7 as in the year 1867
|I'm always right||I am, believe me. pi/2 doesn't lie. |
~ Sir Right Angle Esq.
|Physics is attractive||Only if you're made of a dense, ferromagnetic material.. |
Naw just kidding! Physics is attractive to every nerd!
|If you believe in telekinesis...||Telekinesis- The (unconfirmed) ability to manipulate objects in the real world with your mind, most commonly by moving them. |
Now, please raise my hand!
|You must be made of Copper and Tellurium||Copper (Cu) and Tellurium (Te) spells cute.||Click Here|
|I think I lost an electron||When an atom loses an electron, it becomes positively charged, hence the pun "Are you positive?"||Click Here|
|Are my tan lines showing||Another pun, this time comparing the lines on a tangent graph (y=tan(x)) to sun tan lines..||Click Here|
|Two plus two||Kind of a double joke, a reference to Orwell's "1984", and making fun of rounding rules, where 2.4 is a very large value of 2... 2.4+2.4 = 4.8, which rounds to 5.||Click Here|
|The Element of Surprise (O.o)||Taking it literally, putting Surprise onto the periodic table of elements.||Click Here|
|Are You Sure?||The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle equation, where The more precisely |
the POSITION is determined,
the less precisely
the MOMENTUM is known. This t-shirt just uses that as an expression of uncertainty, hence are you sure.
|Paranormal Distribution||The normal distribution is a probability distribution of data. It just happens to look like a ghost.||Click Here|
|Is it solipsistic in here?||Solipsism is the belief that one can only be sure of the existence of one's own mind. Hence, if its "just me", it also means only I exist.||Click Here|
|Don't be such a third derivative.||This nerdy shirt exploits the name given to the third derivative of position, aka "Jerk". It defines the amount of change in acceleration.||Click here|
|In order to understand recursion..||Computer recursion goes round and round,|
round and round,
round and round..
C'mon, sing with me!
|Bach!||This design is Bach, in musical notes. In German notation, B = B flat, A = A, C = C, H = B natural. JS Bach actually used this before.||Click Here|
|Just keepin' it real||When you square the imaginary unit, you get a real number, "-1"|
Hence, keeping it real.
|Resistance is futile.||The resistor is bypassed in the circuit by a conductor, making Resistance Futile.||Click Here|
|Feeling so fly like a G6||Its a G major chord in first inversion, thus notated as G6.||Click Here|
|I ate some pie.||Root of -1 is the imaginary unit, or "i".|
2 cubed is 8, or ate.
Sigma is the summation sign, or "sum"
and Pi is pie :)
|Integrals pick up line||The definite integral of 2x from 10 to 13.|
Which is 13^2- 10^2, which is 69. ;)
|I'm feeling golden||The Golden Ratio spiral, or fractal spiral.. Hence, Feeling Golden.||Click Here|
|CSS Ninja Joke Tee||Just some attributes of a ninja, coded into a CSS styesheet||Click Here|
|And God said, Let there be light||Maxwell's famous 4 equations, basically describes Electromagnetic Radiation, including light||Click Here|
