Other People Exist

and are not just sense data

Studies show that even when they are not there, other people exist, with thoughts, feelings, and desires just like you


T-Shirt giveaway

I received an email from a custom t-shirt website asking me to try two of their t-shirts for free in exchange for reviewing them on this blog. Normally, I'd cut off my ear before I'd shill for a website, but I thought I could give the t-shirts away to readers of this blog and it would be a win-win (assuming they like t-shirts).

***Shilling begins here***
I uploaded my own image to ooShirts.com and, using their interface, I was easily able to customize the size and placement of my image on the t-shirts. The checkout process was a little bit confusing for me, but after getting help from someone who doesn't give up at the first sign of difficulty, it went fine.

The shirts took about two weeks to arrive. The shirt is a "Gildan Heavy Cotton" tee shirt. The image quality looks excellent to my eye - the line is crisp and clean - though I should note that the OPE logo isn't a complex image. I'll have to wash it to judge the comfort and image durability, but I don't expect any problems. [update: I washed the medium shirt and, as predicted, nothing untoward happened]
***End of shilling***

Knowing that my readers come in various sizes, I ordered a medium and a large, and the only fair way to decide who will get the shirts is for each of you to send me nude photos of you, and we will all vote on who would most benefit from wearing a shirt. Alternatively, you can leave a comment on this post, mentioning your shirt size, and I will pick a winner at random. [update: winners have been picked. Shirts have been mailed.]

The shirts are arriving:

Can I colour in the letters? Are you ticklish?

OPE mugs are available at Cafe Press (three have been purchased, two of them by me), but I prefer that readers not buy from them, as they make it impossible for me to withdraw my measly profits.
