We hope you enjoy the Sexagesimal Blame the Sumerians Short-Sleeve T-Shirt. Made with 100% durable ring-spun cotton. This shirt is a silly math joke about the base 60 (Sexagesimal) numeral system. Students, mathematicians, physicists, and many people often wonder why we still use the base 60 numeral system for time, angles, and geographic coordinates. The super short handwavy explanation-ish is that the Sexagesimal originated with the Sumerians, but the Babylonians inherited, improved, and maintained it for about two thousand years. And well, we just kept the ball rolling with it. You’ve now found the staple t-shirt of your wardrobe. It’s made of a thicker, heavier cotton, but it’s still soft and comfy. And the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves add more durability to what is sure to be a favorite!
