I’m pretty sure that I learned how to do this sometime during the 2nd grade. Yes, immaturity begins to set in at around that time. And of course, the fascinations boys have with boobs start much earlier than you ladies think. In fact, I remember there being an entire formula of pluses and minuses, complete with a full story. And when you hit the equal sign, you’d get …. BOOBLESS (spelled out in upside down digits). But alas, I can’t remember the exact story that I used to tell when showing off the BOOBLESS trick.
Fortunately for us, we have the magic of Google! I found there to be multiple variations of the BOOBIES calculator trick, but I can’t remember if these were the ones that I had learned as a kid. In any case, enjoy!
BOOBLESS Calculator trick instructions:
The latest tee from NerdyShirts reminded me of this nifty trick. And although the calculator on this tee spells out BOOBIES instead of BOOBLESS, it’s still hilariously awesome. Buy one now from NerdyShirts for $19.95.

Now this was an absolute blast of a list to do. It’s a list of 76 Threadless T-Shirts from sketch to print. The post was based on a post that Phil Jones started on the Threadless Blogs. He asked artists to post sketches. I thought it would be cool to give a before and after perspective and thus this post was born!
The big news this week Â comes from our friend and fellow T-Shirt blogger, Andy Bowness of Hide Your Arms. Andy started a new website dedicated to listing the top T-Shirt blogs on the planet. I’m currently ranked #4 so please help me out by giving a vote of 5 stars! Virtual hugs, kisses and high fives will be dispersed appropriately!
Andy from Rethink Clothing is starting a revolution! Watch the video to see how you can be a part of it and be sure to check out Rethink Revolution. Fun prizes are involved!
Kudos to In My Short Sleeve for spotting this amazing tee from Chalk Brighton. The shirt is called MOOG and features hundreds of tracks featuring a Moog synthesiser. Via In My Short Sleeve.

I really, really, really liked Apathy, Our Country’s Leading Cause of Whatever by Josh Miller.
And did you know that Threadless is now collaborating with Society6? Well they are and they’ve got some really rad stuff.
In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear Melted by Desired Hearts and review Modern Art and Pirates from New Math by Craig Damrauer. The shirts are based on the popular website, More New Math, and the book written by Damrauer. The site, book and shirts feature witty equations for every day living.
Pirates and Modern Art by New Math. Pros: The New Math shirts by Craig Damrauer match the New Math website and book perfectly. Printed on American Apparel tees so you know that I dig the fit and feel of these shirts – super comfortable and soft. My shirts came packaged in a lovely New Math printed cardboard box. Excellent shirt for those who enjoy mathematics, typography or just fun witty one liners.Â Cons: Nothing really. The shirt is what it is and that is a compliment to the New Math book and website. Price: $20.

Remember the guys from Doubletake Clothing? Sure you do, they released the very popular Bears, Beets, Battlestar… tee early on this year. Well, they’re back. Sort of. This time the masterminds behind Doubletake Clothing has forged a new alliance with author/artist Craig Damrauer, of New Math fame.
“New Math started as an art book which was sold at MOMA and a number of other museum stores and boutiques in the US and Japan. In the fall CT Editions will publish a collection of New Math, edited by Ed Ruscha. New Math has been seen in GOOD Magazine, the New York Times Op-Ed page, Mother Jones and the German Greenpeace Magazine.”
If you haven’t checked out New Math: Equations for Living, I urge you to do so. I just picked up a copy from Amazon for a cheap $9.94 and am excited to see what other equations Craig has cooked up.
As far as the shirts go, yeah they’re simple – they are supposed to be! They retain the “New Math” look and feel as seen in the book. My favorite from the bunch is the Modern Art equation shirt. Isn’t it so true? I think so. For an extra $5 you can even pick up an amazing collectors/gift box. Each of these environmentally friendly boxes features the New Math equation of the shirt.
Not directly associated to the shirts above but somewhat related. You YouTube fans will probably enjoy it:
Ok, I couldn’t help myself. I had to do an “epic list” post of my own. I haven’t attempted one before and it seems that people like them, so, why not? The hard part was figuring out a list topic that was fun enough for me to do because, as I had predicted, this would take forever to complete! I decided to tackle SCIENCE! And why not, I’m a dork when it comes to science stuff. I love science! Science is awesome. Science is my religion. And so if you’ve been hunting high and low in search of the perfect science infused T-Shirt, well, I’ve got a hundred (plus one) for you to choose from.

2 + 3 = 5. But, you knew that already. If not, well, 1. I feel sorry for you and 2. you should be ashamed! All kidding aside, I’ve never been the best person to go to for math advice but this shirt does seem like math advice overkill if you ask me! Nonetheless, you need to appreciate the attention to detail that Ugmonk founder, Jeff Sheldon, puts into each one of his designs. His love for typography undoubtedly comes across in each one of his designs.Â
The recently restocked Math Problem tee is available now for sale at $21. But, my suggestion for you: pick one up now if you want one! After just a few days of being available stock is clearly running low. Hint: Use the coupon code COTY09 at checkout to save an additional 10% off your entire order!
I spotted these Google tees a while ago on the Every Loves Free Stuff blog, but it’s been sitting in my drafts folder and I just never got around to typing a blurb for it! Anyhow, love this mathematical infused Google company shirt that was distributed to employees to celebrate the workforce. Google, do you need a hardworking blogger? I’d love to be a part of your team. They also serve as a subtle and friendly reminder that functioning as a team player is a good thing when working at Google!
I absolutely love the newest tee from Robit Studios! It’s called Most Of You Are Average and it features a simple bell shaped curve. Now, if any of you have taken a course in statistics then you are probably very familiar with this “normal” curve. This very simply shape is actually very powerful and can tell us a lot about any given population.Â
Now, as a blogger, I hope that I don’t fall right smack down in the middle of the “T-Shirt blogging population.” I hope to fall at least two or three standard deviations to the right of the mean and towards awesomeness! In the world of blogging, those that stay at the peak of that bell shaped curve are easily forgotten. The goal is to be at the tail end of the curve (hopefully the positive end). Here are a few things that set this T-Shirt blog apart from the crowd:
1. Videos! Lots and lots of videos. Be sure to check out the latest episode of Co-Tee TV every Thursday and Coty Loves Threadless every Monday!
