Tees That Give Instant Geek Cred
We've selected some of the geekiest T-shirts ever spotted in the wild. Just being seen wearing one of these classics can elevate you to the heady heights of geek chic. Prepare for the awesomeness that ensues!
Bat Boy Proves Riemann Hypothesis T-Shirt
This T-shirt combines pop culture and mathematics in a perfect convergence of geekery. Bat Boy of Weekly World News fame proves the Riemann Hypothesis, a mathematical conjecture about the distribution of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function which states that all nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function have real part 1/2. And he has pointy teeth! Pointy teeth are cool.
Ninja Code T-Shirt
Here we have an example of a typical geek obsession (ninjas) combined with another geek obsession (coding). If you understand the humor of this shirt, your geek credentials are confirmed! Otherwise, ask a ninja.
I've Been Outside T-Shirt
Why leave your house (and stop gaming) when pizza can be delivered? The main drawback of this shirt's message is that it's effective only when someone comes to visit you...and no one comes to visit you.
No Place like Home T-Shirt
They say there’s no place like home--and for geeks, home is 127.0.0.1, the localhost or loopback IP address associated with your computer.
Geek Love Poem T-Shirt
Here’s a geek love poem. Nothing says “I care” like the thoughtful inclusion of proper hexadecimal color codes!
Command Prompt T-Shirt
This Windows command prompt humor harkens back to old-school reading primers of the “See Jane run” variety.
Wi-Fi Detector T-Shirt
Our bonus T-shirt is the ever-popular Wi-Fi Detector (which also appears in our otherwise nonoverlapping slideshow "15 Tech T-Shirts We Love," from last year). This garment actually lights up when it detects a Wi-Fi network. The stronger the signal is, the more bars on the shirt light up.
