Times are kind of tough for my wife and me, as I am sure it has been for many of you. My place of employment (a small print shop in So Cal) has been very, very, slow due to the economy so I haven’t been getting full time hours and the prospect of getting a new job in the printing business doesn’t seem very good either.
One thing I am doing to attempt to supplement my income is to try and boost business at my online T-shirt shop “Evo-T’s” and this brings me to the point of this post.
I am making available add banners in various sizes and colors (similar to the one on the right side of this blog) and would like to request that anyone with a MySpace page, a personal web-page or blog, please consider placing one of these banners on your site. The more traffic I get the more likely I’ll sell a few shirts and then maybe I won’t have to think about canceling my internet connection (one of the few luxuries we have left).
I would of course be willing to reciprocate, and I am also always looking for new shirt ideas. Also if you haven’t already please consider adding Evo-T’s as a MySpace friend.
Evo-T’s add banners.
Thanks for your time and sorry for the slightly off-topic begging.
Update: Things just got worse. The boss officially informed me that my hours will be cut to a maximum of 24 (three days) a week. A new or additional job is a must now.
Done. Larry Moran has too.
As for shirt ideas, here are a few from my vast collection of TO sig files:
It ain’t the parts of the Bible
that I can’t understand that bother me,
it is the parts that I do understand.
– Mark Twain –
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge:
it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so
positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved
— Charles Darwin —
Those who reject biological evolution do so, usually,
not out of reason, but out of unjustified vanity.
– Isaac Asimov –
Creatures inveterately wrong in their inductions
have a pathetic but praiseworthy tendency to die
before reproducing their kind.
– Willard van Ormand Quine –
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one:
‘O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.’
And God granted it.
– Voltaire –
Facts are meaningless. You can prove anything
that’s even remotely true with facts.
– Homer Simpson –
A man does not attain the status of Galileo
merely because he is persecuted;
he must also be right.
–Stephen Jay Gould
It is misleading for creationists to characterize science
in general and evolution in particular as “godless.”
Science is godless in the same way that plumbing is godless.
– Robert T. Pennock –
A world in which man must rely on himself, in which
he is not the darling of the gods but only another,
albeit extraordinary, aspect of nature,
is by no means congenial to the immature.
– George Gaylord Simpson –
For every complex problem,
there is a simple,
easy to understand,
– Albert Szent-Gyorgyi –
It is as respectable to be modified monkey as modified dirt.
— Thomas Henry Huxley —
If I were granted omnipotence,
and millions of years to experiment in,
I should not think Man much to boast of
as the final result of all my efforts.
– Bertrand Russell –
Science has proof without any certainty.
Creationists have certainty without any proof.
– Ashley Montague –
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.
– Philip K. Dick –
Scientists have odious manners,
except when you prop up their theory;
then you can borrow money of them.
— Mark Twain —
To what ridiculous theories will men of science be
led by attempting to reconcile science to scripture!
– Alfred Russel Wallace –
To say that secular means irreligious implies
that all the arts and sciences are irreligious,
and is very like saying that all professions
except that of the law are illegal.
– John Stuart Mill –
The trouble with the world is that
the stupid are cocksure and
the intelligent are full of doubt.
– Bertrand Russell –
The difference between genius and stupidity
is that genius has its limits.
– Albert Einstein –
Only two things are infinite,
the universe and human stupidity,
and I’m not sure about the former.
– Albert Einstein –
Stupidity, if left untreated, is self-correcting.
– Robert Heinlein –
All superstition is much the same . . .
the deluded believers
observe events which are fulfilled,
but neglect and pass over their failure,
though it be much more common.
– Francis Bacon –
Liberation from superstition is a necessary
but not a sufficient condition for science.
– Carl Sagan –
And my personal favorite:
Some mornings it just don’t seem worthwhile
chewing through the leather straps.
Many thanks John!
