Surely You're Joking

The Rheo Thing blog has a post discussing rheology t-shirts. To be blunt, the slogans are lame. They're interchangeable with shirts for geologists, microbiologists, or investment bankers. If you look at the chemist ("If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate") or physicist (F=ma it's not just a good idea, it's the 2nd law") shirts, those are funny.  In that spirit, here are a few real rheology t-shirt ideas.

  • You can't be too rich, too young, or too shear-thinning
  • Rheologists: going with the flow since 500 B.C.
  • Rebel Rheologist: Nothing Flows
  • Or try this picture below...

    Thank you very much, and I'll be here all week.  Don't forget to tip your waitress!
    (Surely some of you have ideas...put them in the comments.)

  1. Only a line of text seems not characteristic enough of rheologists.

    More images ideas: Simple illustration of Weissenberg behavior, a cartoon rheometry beast with a scary geometry...
