By popular demand I’ve resumed my search today for awesomely geeky t-shirts at Maker Faire. Sunday delivered just as much as Saturday, with pithy slogans, Latin text; even a hamster that shoots lasers out of its eyes.

Enjoy this little slice of how much fun Maker Faire can be, and we hope to see you next year.

    I have a catapult. If you don’t give me all your money, I will hurl large rocks at your head.

      You caught me on my way to giving the “Mechanical Artillery 101″ lecture.

      As to the translation, well, I visited a friend who is an actual teaching latin scholar. She gave
      the translation on my shirt a C, a C+ if she was in a good mood. (lots of strange word choices, some tense issues, etc Eg: Uses plural of all, but singular of coin, instead of throw, it was send like a letter, and instead of at your head, it was in your head.). Here is it
      re-written, with the rock upsized, instead of mail, hurl with great
      force, and indicating you want more than a single coin.

      Catapultam habeo. Da mihi pecunia omnia Nisi conieciam magnum saxum capite tua.
