    As good a reason as any I’ve seen to wear your underwear outside the pants, superhero-style.

    Hey, thanks for mentioning our estrogen boy short panties! We also have a matching camisole, for when you need to get your uber-chemistry geek on. 😉

    But … the buttons are all in the wrong places.

    You might want to check out as well — they don’t have anything quite as much fun as panties, but they do have several different BSoD shirts and their own spin on “403 Forbidden”.

    This is from RFC 2616. It makes me wonder which came first the panties or the internet.
    10.4.4 403 Forbidden
    The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated. If the request method was not HEAD and the server wishes to make public why the request has not been fulfilled, it SHOULD describe the reason for the refusal in the entity. If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 404(Not Found) can be used instead.

    The capitalisation is from the RFC

    Oh Wow. I was just yesterday talking to a friend who complained that her geek hubby lacked romance and was only passionate about electronics/games. I told her I was sure there was Geek Lingerie but we couldn’t find any. What luck you found this! The 403 error description is priceless I don’t think I ever read them before.

    The 413 error is quite possibly the most complimentary way I’ve ever seen to tell a geek “no.” Brilliant.
