Heres a preliminatry list of just the first 50 or so pages... ugh.

YMBAMI:

your forearms are bigger around than your biceps...
you reach into your pocket for change but all you find is a few loose rings...
Everytime you see a paper clip, you wish they were at least 10 times as long
Your hallowen costume weighs more than 30 lbs.
your callouses have callouses.
Instead of putting clothes on metal hangars, you put metal hangars on your clothing.
you weigh 15lbs less when you take off your shirt
your friend says "give me a ring later" and you say ?what material, ID, and gauge??
you can give a handshake capable of bringing a grown man to tears.
Everytime you look at a spring, you see potential rings.
people avoid shaking hands with you because you dislocate their joints everytime you do.
You've had at least 2 forms of metal poisoning
You have been kicked out of a hardware store for 'harassing the electricians'
you have ever thought to ask the salvation army to donate their coathangers to you...
At school you get asked at least 10 times a day if you have your maille with you.
if you can clean your house with a big magnet instead of a dust mop.
You cut your fingernails with aviation snips.
you know how many rings each storage container holds plus or minus 5
you go to the zoo to take pictures of the fences
you look at the circular pretzels in Chex Mix and think "Edible maille!!!"

You are a member of M.A.I.L.!

I tried picking ones that would be funny to non-maillers too.

Here's a preliminary image - I have yet to create a border I like.

I love it! Coif Cool Smiley Will it be available in 3X? (Haven't read the rest of the thread yet. So if that's already been answered, my appologies.)

i think the idea might have died, but they just might be looking for someone to push them to finnish it.

I'd definetly get one of those shirts as soon as they become available, but that could be a while from the looks of it.

I am "the cafepress people" for MAIL.. I don't have the fullsize image in the computer I'm on now (I'm in a cafe on my laptop), but I'll grab it from my computer at home and put it on new product this week (probably monday) due to popular demand.. I'll post a link in this thread when I get it online.

Sweet my mom has bought the maille shirt with the designs on the back. It is an exhalant shirt and I would love to get the new one as well. Good job on the shirts.


Sit back, relax, and whip out some rings!
