Jumper can be used to mean a thicker woolly thing, but mostly people just use it interchangeably with sweater. Well, I say that, people don't usually use the word sweater but you know what I mean.

As far as raptor ones go, I'd imagine the thicker ones would be impossible to make but the thinner type still get my vote. Not hoodies though, too many bad connotations.

Edit: Just realised that you're english too! Guess it's just a regional thing or some such then.

Re: moebius stuff: I have a silver moebius ring, which is utterly fab. The people that make it have discontinued it, apparently, but I think there's still a few floating about. I love this ring -- brilliant design.

But it's not as cool as a WWED bracelet.

It's not very hard, you just type in your name, address, and credit card number like you would for any other method of buying it. You're not going to find some other way that involves you doing anything different.

Also; I want an XKCD design on a hoodie NAO!

Ok. Now assume I don't have or have access to a credit card. And can't set one up.

(I pay for everything I buy online by depositing money into the sellers bank account. Everything. Nintek and Scorptec encourage it.)

Well, if you don't have a credit card then your buying ability over the internet is severely crippled.

I just used my mums one. >.>

That's.... hardcore. Now all I need is money.


What's the going rate for a raptor-repellant rock these days? Here I have such a rock. Do you see any raptors? No? THan it must work! Save yourself from the Raptors, buy a RRR (Triple R, 3R, R-cubed...) today!

I would like that "just shy" shirt, because it is the truth! I am just very shy, and you can talk to me! Sometimes, though, people do talk to me. But it is mostly boys. And they mostly say inappropriate things.

Also, I always thought it was funny in school when people would say x to the third because even I knew it was x cubed and I am horrendous with maths.

Yay! I have ordered my "Just Shy" and "Witty" shirts! I am pretty excited. Also I apologised for turning the Nash thread into a thread about shoes. Shoes are pretty awesome, but I guess Nash also is awesome. I think. Shirts are more awesome!

Anyway, I cannot wait until they come and I can show them both off. Maybe I will take pictures and post them up! :D

I considered ordering a "just shy" shirt, and then I did a thought experiment.

I thought, "What would I do if I saw someone wearing that shirt?"

I would look at the shirt, stare at it for a bit, stare at the dude wearing it for a bit, think, "That's cool, it's by the XKCD dude, and shy people rock!" And then I would be like, "I should mention how cool that shirt that is to the dude, and that I am also an XKCD fanatic, wooooo!" and then I would retort to myself, "Naw, the dude will just think I'm creepy," and then I'd walk away and be sad the rest of the day, and then I'd drink and listen to the Mountain Goats.

The result of the thought experiment is that I clearly am antisocial and not just shy. So I can't wear that shirt.
One of these days my desk is going to collapse in the middle and all its weight will come down on my knee and tear my new fake ACL. It could be tomorrow. This is my concern.
