For anyone who cares...

I "decoded" the "secret message" on the ThinkGeek The Magic Supersecret Binary T-Shirt.

It is "I shopped at ThinkGeek on April Fools Day, and all I got was this lousy shirt!"

The trick is not hard to figure out...they just made it 47 characters instead of 48...strip the newlines, split on eight character boundaries, convert binary value to character equivalent (they just used good old fashioned ASCII...not even ROT13'ed ;).
