Convince me to shoot in RAW

So that you can wear Jared Polin's "I shoot RAW" T-Shirts.

Dumb question: Are these shirts intended for people that proudly exclaim the format in which they shoot, or is it meant to mock RAW shooters who think they're better photographers just because they shoot RAW?

Shoot in RAW. 

If you don't, no one will ever love you, and your doggy will die.

Convinced?

I have a dog. I don't want him to die.
Thanks for convincing me!

To anyone else here to answer my question and not add wood to the fire, It didn't take me long to see the benefits of RAW. For some reason I thought shooting in RAW would add an extra step to my workflow. Using Lightroom, it doesn't, save for slightly longer processing times, which is more than worth it for the results I'm seeing.
Great! Enjoy the flexibility. And (my English teacher would be dismayed that I started the sentence with this word) if you need JPGs in a hurry, shoot both. Whenever I shoot both, I write both to the CF card.

I must admit having similar thoughts. Perhaps those t-shirts can be used for both, can't they?

It just depends on who is in the t-shirt.  ;)

Not quite, real hardcore is having *backups* of all these raw shots, too.

I wondered about the same thing when I recently saw it - but it isn't dumb at all because all publicity is good publicity, he is remembered and talked about :-o
