ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Heroine: Ada Lovelace
I’m just disappointed they only offer them as babydoll shirts. I’m a guy, and I’d totally wear that art on a male-fitted T-shirt.
Am I the only one who gets Ada and Linda Lovelace confused?
What is that pipe-looking thing supposed to be?
i’m one who would totally wear this shirt, or maybe i’d pick the Marie Curie one, if they were available in a large, regular t-shirt style. they are much artier than many of the thinkgeek designs! but the “ladies” style is a no-go for me, and a few others with whom i’ve exclaimed over them.
Lady Lovelace sure has had a resurgence in popularity hasn’t she (this coming from a 2D Goggles fan)?
Funny you should mention Marie Curie. Ãˆve Curie wrote in her biography of her mother that she would find her mother in a black dress, seated on the floor, surrounded by papers and muttering numbers to herself in Polish; almost exactly how the Lovelace tee-shirt looks.
I agree we with #s 2 and 5- make a guy’s tee! I’d definitely wear this.
Agreed–that Curie shirt is just gorgeous.
Aw, disappointment. I was hoping this was “Thinkgeek’s women” in “tech tees”. Or even better, I hoped it was some pics of Lady Ada modeling t-shirts. Woof.
Sadly, it’s just and ad for yet another garment I’d look inappropriate in.
Or…you could get up from the keyboard and go outside. There are women in T-shirts all over the place.
Where’s the men’s version? Boo.
The Marie Curie shirt is also pretty awesome
