RoboBlitz T-shirt contest: Day 1 [update 1]

Some of you may recall that I was a little jealous of the RoboBlitz shirt that Naked Sky gave to Gamertag Radio's Godfree. It looks like Naked Sky's Tian Mu (who we interviewed yesterday) was listening, because he sent us not one, not two, but five T-shirts to give away. We have three men's shirts and two just for the ladies. Starting today, we'll give one away every day. What do you have to do to win? Well, we're not sure, but we'll think of something new every day.

Today's T-shirt is a men's large. Bearing a picture of Blitz the robot on the front, and the RoboBlitz title smartly emblazoned on the right sleeve. RoboBlitz is all about physics, so if you'd like to have this shirt as your very own (your preciousssss), all you have to do is tell us something fun you can do with physics. You know, things like kicking a ball, using a lever, or curb stomping a Locust. So, think something up, leave it in the comments, and we'll choose a winner completely at random. If you don't win today, just come back tomorrow. And if you don't win tomorrow ... well, then you'll have to come back Monday, but still, that's an awesome shirt, right? Get to it and good luck.

Update: This contest is now closed, and we are on to Day 2. Check out our new contest here.

General contest stuff: Only one entry per person. Winners will be contacted via email in order to obtain shipping information. This contest is open to residents of the United States only.

1. You could take a parabolic flight in a cargo plane, then at the peak, while you're experiencing zero-G, scatter a bunch of brightly-colored rubber superballs throughout the cargo bay and wait for them to all come crashing down and bouncing chaotically when gravity returns.

6. I'm a fan of David Letterman's "Will it Float" game. Put an object in water and see if it floats or sinks. Some results aren't what you'd expect...

7. potato guns are always fun, but in the holiday console war spirit, should we make a PS3 gun? nah, profits on ebay are just too high.

11. Convince your friends you can pee off the top of a building into a glass, and then get one of them to hold the glass while you try.

12. One of my favorite things to do with physics is use a planet's gravitational pull to slingshot myself in a new trajectory at a higher velocity, while juggling four full glasses of 2% milk.

13. Something fun with physics, I'd puke on a PS3 then chainsaw it.

14. I would demonstrate Newton's law by smacking my wife's ass and telling her that the sting of my hand hitting her ass is the result of the mass of my palm times the acceleration I forced on it plus drag due to gravity.

15. Bounce my wireless 360 controller off of 3 different walls when I killed due to lag on halo 2.

16. Shift My Center of Gravity so I can fit in a Large, that is what I would do with Physics.

19. Take a tennis ball and a basketball. Hold the tennis ball on top of the basketball, make sure they're touching, and then lift them into the air like that and drop them. The basketball hits the ground first, bounces up, and shoots the tennis ball some 20 feet into the air.

20. You can have a lot of fun with magnets over superconductors. Somehow the magnetic field lines get "stuck" in the superconductor and the magnet will float!
