The shirt I ended up making said "small creature" (alluding to the quote from Contact.) I'm not sure if anyone "got it", but quote recognizeability wasn't on my list of goals. (Roughly in order of priority, these were: have a fresh shirt hanging up, that I could make quickly, that I might want to wear again.)

Participants mostly made shirts with names, Dr. Who references, and homages to Minecraft.

Well, I got it :) But you were a bit busy at the point where I was thinking "Hey, that's pretty cool!", and then I didn't remember to say anything later...

So, I thought it was a good choice :)

Rationality witticisms suitable for t-shirts or bumper stickers

What are your best short witticisms, suitable for use on a t-shirt, bumper sticker, or similar location? Ideally something that might make someone reading it think, or get curious enough to ask about it. Simple in-group identification is fine too, though.

For context, therufs is spending today at the NC Maker Faire making t-shirts, and asked me for suggestions this morning. As I was still mostly asleep, I wasn't very helpful.
