Are you doubting that she's a she?

Who, Proleg?

Also, I had never used the word "wit" used as a noun to identify a person before, but upon looking it up, it is apparently correct - though Wiktionary states that it is "rare, colloquial".
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

I just thought of something, if enough of us get these shirts, do you think we can beat the record noob invasion of last summer?

I'd buy enough shirts for everyone at work to have one.  That's about 6000.

Yes, Proleg. Clearly a woman. A big woman with red cheeks.

Also I 'lrnt2english' over 30 years ago, so i find it quite easy nowadays. Anyway, thanks all the same for your validation.

After a long delay and far too much time spent revising the same basic design over and over again, I have something I'm pretty happy with.  And if the rest of you are happy with it, I'll go ahead and get some official Flat Earth Society t-shirts printed.  But before I do that, I'd appreciate your input.  Is the design decent?  Any little changes to be made?  To keep costs down, I'm sticking with a single colour print.  I'll give you an approximate breakdown of my hypothetical production costs so you'll know how I came up with the hypothetical price tag.  I'm not planning on making a profit on these, so the price will just be enough to cover my expenses with any accidental profits going toward web hosting fees and upkeep on my solid gold mansion.

The cost per t-shirt for me would be about ?6.00 ($9.00) in smallish batches (10 or so).  That's for a one-colour print on a Fruit of the Loom Super Premium t-shirt.  I've read reviews and that seems to be quite a decent quality shirt -- not a cheapo shirt that will stretch and fall apart the first time you wear it. 

Shipping costs would obviously depend on where you live.  Within the UK, it would be about ?2.00.  To the US, more like $7.50 (according to the Royal Mail site).  More than likely, people would pay via Paypal so I'm going to factor in their transaction fee as well.  So, all told, about ?8.50 within the UK and $17.00 in the US.   Shipping to other countries outside of Europe is probably similar to the US costs.  These prices are all approximate and may change (especially international orders if currency rates change), but probably not by much.

Your thoughts?  In case anyone is wondering, the "IN VERITATE VICTORIA" is taken the preface to Samuel Rowbotham's Zetetic Astronomy and means, "Victory in Truth".  I'm taking it on as the Society's official motto, I think.  It has quite a nice ring to it.



I'd be interested. Nice look to it too.

A lower 20's man in canada is a fairly large piece of evidence for one.

Jesus Christ, you are a fucking twit. What does your belief in the shape of the Earth have to do with your judgment of the design of a shirt? I hope you post another pornographic film and get permabanned for it next time.

Also, if Proleg were a woman I'd be fucking begging her to marry me by now. I'd say that's pretty strong evidence against the case.

Because as an RE, I would automatically dislike the idea of having a t-shirt with a flat earth on it.
I would be a hypocrite wearing that.

I'm not sure that believing in RE or FE makes any difference. If the shirt had a picture of the FE globe or the RE globe it wouldn't make a difference to your particular t-shirt needs as both would be flat. Ergo, if your RE society made a tshirt you wouldn't wear that either.

Yes I would. As long as the motive was clearly a round swirling globe on a flat t-shirt.

You're talking about a spherical shirt with no holes for the arms or head, or a waist! Unless you acknowledge that Antarctica as a continent does not exist, but even then your theory is still flawed, and I'm explaining that. Another win for FE, methinks, because we can go on a T-shirt.
