Also, here’s a shameless plug:

If you’re into nerdy t-shirts ($15.99 – $17.99), for yourself or as a gift, check out the following prints you can order via Amazon prime (click here for other fun non-academic designs): 

 Qualitative Quoala                   Rule the Night!                   Chi-Square Samurai
Academic Researcher              One word at a time!          Squirrel Statistician

Fabric is super soft and the prints don’t fade with excessive washing.

In case you’re curious, these three prints were conceptualized by me and illustrated/designed by my very talented fiancé.
