Blogito Ergo Sum. "I Blog, therefore I am" for those of you who aren't big Descartes fans or weren't required to study Latin as a child as was I. ( I never really found much use for Latin in everyday discourse and have dropped much of my use of it.)
This t-shirt is charcoal with a blogger-brown button dead-center on the chest with "Blogito, ergo sum" in white. Beneath, a small reminder that you might not be as popular as you think: "Comments (0)."
It's great to see some old Latin usage taking over the blogosphere. Monty Python has been trying to educate the masses alone for long enough.
Oh, and by the way, thanks to those who keep my comment count and embarrassment level above 0.
- In the Monty Python sketch "Bruces' Philosophers Song" from Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl, Descartes is misquoted as saying "I drink, therefore I am." which would in Latin be "poto, ergo sum".
- In the Terry Gilliam film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen the King of the Moon (Robin Williams), claiming that he is the creator of everything, says "Cogito ergo es" translating it himself as "I think, therefore you is." (The actual translation being "I think, therefore you are")
