Contrapuntal music is the music that your parents fear

As Friday, more or less, it's Humor Blog Awareness Day. If you didn't catch it on your Friends page, there's the RSS feed, or just this pile of links:

Now back to AnthrOhio photos and the most photogenic of the days, the one with the Fursuit Parade:

Con suite, Saturday morning. It's a lot of nibbling without a particular central focus. I make out three people staring at cell phones here; you?

Bunnies! The morning rabbits from the Ohio Rabbit Rescue Society. A couple nice white bunnies that I believe were a bonded pair. Yeah, that's some Frozen towels in the background.

Bunnies with bunny_hugger, who's wearing her bunny cape. Adorable, isn't it?

The darlings of the Fursuit Parade this year: exactly who you might expect. I don't know what happened to last year's Rocket Raccoon. Also far off on the right, someone who has a similar nice long striped tail to mine, but doesn't have the courage to wear it up.

bunny_hugger's moment walking past me in the Fursuit Parade! Also I'm not sure but I think that's Dwight Schrute dressed as a Ghostbuster to her right.


Trivia: While developing his lie detector Charles Keeler, experimenting on himself, discovered a minor cardiovascular abnormality which caused his heart to skip a beat when he was stressed. (It resulted from an old streptococcus infection.) He switched to using friends and roommates for testing. Source: The Lie Detectors: The History of an American Obsession, Ken Alder.

PS: Theorem Thursday: A First Fixed Point Theorem, because I figured this would be a nice easy thing I could dash off in a hurry and then it was two thousand words.
