After about the third day of this roller-coaster I started getting requests from people on the feed asking for “Let’s Do A Science” or “SarcasticRover” t-shirts and such – basically trying to give me money to wear things about a stupid joke account I made… which is ridiculous.
Mandy is a brilliant artist and very good friend here in Calgary, and she painted some amazing good pictures of the rover, and the official “Let’s Do A Science” logo that I use on the Twitter feed. And once I saw that painting, I knew there was at least something decent and not cynically shitty that we could put on a t-shirt and let people wear.
So let me be clear – the profit on these types of internet shirt-mills is slim, and while you do end up spending money – at least you can rest assured that I am not getting rich off some stupid Twitter account.
So if you like the shirt, or the mugs or whatever else we get asked to put in there – then feel free to get one, and if you don’t that’s cool. They’re just there, and we don’t need to talk about them.
Here’s a picture of one – and you should also go check out Mandy’s art… because she’s the only reason you get any shirts at all.
