I'm going to guess that it has something to do with that "world ends in 2012 because the Mayan calendar says so" (even though the Mayan calendar says no such thing) hysteria.

I heard Pat interviewed by Klaatu on Hacker Public Radio--He quoted Lao-Tzu and Einstein both in the course of 20 minutes. The breadth and eclecticism of his conversation was most impressive.

Thanks for the podcast link. I listened to Patrick's interview with Linux Link Tech Show guys, it was good as well.

I bought two shirts. I think it was genius to come up with the new logo!

Personally, I don't understand why so many people suddenly believe in the Mayan calendar, even tho, indeed it says no such thing as the end of the world.

Possibilities:
1) People want the world to end, as they always have, and always with them.
2) The Mayans were an ancient, mystical cult who knew many things, at least that's all anyone knows about them, and that's good enough for everyone to believe in something they never actually said would happen. You know, like what people usually do.

I've got to have one of those tee-shirts.

Im always worried about the size of 'medium', 'large', 'xl large' etc.

The people that already have one of these tee-shirts, what size would be best for a thin, weedy person?

I would like to know what are the measurements from hem to underarm for each size.

I prefer "slim and athletic", or even "wiry", as a description. :)
I've got one of the older "standard" t-shirts, medium, and it's a nice fit - not too baggy, not too tight. Hip length, more or less.

Yes that is a better description. I shall use that instead. It doesnt matter that I smoke 30 cigarettes a day because they wont know it.

So I ask the question again, the people that already have one of these tee-shirts, what size would be best for a slim and athetic person?

It's something to do with people believing stuff they read on a computer monitor or hear on Entertainment Tonight! when they wouldn't believe the same stuff if they read it in the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Also, there's one born every minute, etc., (though with today's population, it's more like every second).

The new shirt is about this:

Being different and having fun.

Now go buy a shirt!

Possibilities:

3) Superstition has always been and will always be there. Because of ...
4) Most people if not all experience states of a felt truth - if it feels so, it has to be true. This kind of emotional reasoning is very very common, especially with frightening thoughts.
