T-Shirt Personalization Contest! (in Contests)
August 21 2006 10:08 PM EDT
I have to get a T-shirt for school for $10. But for an additional $4, I can get something printed on the back. I could just go and put my last name like everybody else, but that is too cliche ;-) So I'm holding this contest to see what crazy ideas people have.
Some things I have already been thinking of are:
- Some binary (01001101)
- Some fictitious/fantasy name (Incadareu, Aotrieq, etc.)
- Some CB chat command that nobody will understand ( /kick tscm )
Prize will be $50,000 CB2D to the one I like the most, $100,000 CB2D if I actually order it on my shirt :-P Contest will most likely end Thursday night; if i need the order form in sooner I will obviously have to end the contest sooner.
So lets hear what ideas you've got :-)

" --/ack kill
And if you didn't know, the one I posted first is the message you get when you /kill somebody. Just thought I'd make sure it was clarified. ;)

" I know violence is not the answer, I got it wrong on purpose "
August 21 2006 10:23 PM EDT
just to clarify, feel free to build off my ideas. e.g. give me binary that actually means something, or some other weird names, and i know there's lots of possibilities with chat commands :-)

A variety of fun quotes:
"Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet." ~Dave Barry
"I believe everybody in the world should have guns. Citizens should have bazookas and rocket launchers too. I believe that all citizens should have their weapons of choice. However, I also believe that only I should have the ammunition. Because frankly, I wouldn't trust the rest of the goobers with anything more dangerous than string." ~Scott Adams (Assuming you may use the *entire* back of the shirt)
"Non-violence is the policy of the vegetable kingdom." ~H.G. Wells
"Violence is as American as cherry pie." ~H. Rap Brown
This, just because if you put this on the back of your shirt, you would be the man forever:
<JaggedFel311> hey james, how big is yours?

When you have elliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, MUST BE THE TRUTH.
Wise words are never wasted.
Cogito Ergo Sum
Come to think of it, there already are a million monkeys on a million typewriters...and Usenet is NOTHING like Shakespeare
Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty
And for some reason, on a school shirt, I like this:
Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.

Great entries, but Flamey's right, this is going on the back of a T-shirt so most of those quotes and longer entries will not fit. I don't know the character limit for sure, but I would guess its about 10-12 characters.
Now that that's out of the way, let's keep 'em coming :-)
"This phrase cost me 50k cb2"
"/who Soup Ream"
or the ever popular...
"Chappy was here"
Vampiric aura..........Bam I just shot Emeral.........Bedazzled shorts.....Trouble follows.......C.B.2 WOOT!......tap maniac.......Parting out for cash........Built by Aliens......Bart pimpson.......Sorrows parting......Socks optional.

If you want to know who you have to compete with, here are my favorite entries so far (in no particular order):
"Your Ad Here" (Slashundhack)
"Et Tu, Dufus?" (Bast)
"Cogito, Ergo Sum" (Sefton)
"Click Here" (Flamey)
"This phrase cost me 50k cb2" (chappy)
"<java> </java>" (SNK3R)
Here's a few I came up with that I might use:

sorry if i'm wrong.
but the letters are about 1 inch high (2.5 cm) and about 1/2 inch wide (1.25cm).
and all along the top at the back. so RW is right it fits maybe 12 letters at most.

Although I didn't choose any of you're entries, (i'm going with <"ltr"=rid odb>) I have decided upon a winner. It was tough, as there were so many great entries, but I finally decided on...(drumroll)...
...SNK3R! He didn't enter in the thread, his entry was via chat a few days ago. <java> </java> made me chuckle.
Also, I'll just hand out 10k to Verifex for introducing me to the lollercoaster.
Let me know what chars to send money to, please.
I personally always enjoyed printing up the DeCSS source code on t-shirts. That, and the binary form of "Take my wife, please!" as shown in the classic episode of Reboot, "Enzo's Birthday".
