- The Stages Of The Road Trip: Stage Three, last week's big piece and a startlingly popular essay for reasons I'm not clear on. I think people found something engaging in the weirdness.
- After Kind Of Watching The First 45 Minutes Of Moonraker I think of the silliest possible question about its premise.
- Statistics Saturday: US Acting-Presidents Under The 25th Amendment Name Lengths Over Time and here I think I've exhausted all the possibilities for this formalist exercise passed off as humor.
- What’s Going On In Mark Trail? Is Mark Trail gonna punch a Yeti? July – September 2019 It's too soon to say. No coatis in the rest of the concluded gold-mine plot, by the way.
- The Most Wonderful Thing I’ve Seen About Equinoxes All Year as I see a funny disclaimer.
- Popeye has a weird game of Ping-Pong in a cartoon that tries very hard to be boring and then goes and interests me anyway.
- I’m past wondering if Long Story Short is making fun of me but get in another quick silly dumb joke.
- The Stages Of The Road Trip: Stage Four, this week's long-form piece as really nothing happens but I make jokes about it.
More peeking in at Motor City Fur[ry] Con 2018. There's fewer of them to pick from than I had realized.
``He's right behind me,'' said bunny_hugger, ``isn't he?''
Somehow I'm already on closing-ceremonies pictures. Here ... I guess everyone was doing The Wave for some reason?
The Motor City Fur[ry] Convention board of directors waves or maybe takes a picture right back at me.
People milling about in costume at closing ceremonies.
And with the convention officially closed people enjoy stacking up a couple chairs and stealing them for home use.
Another good look at the dragon with the 3,850-pound suit, this time with the eyes turned off.
Side view of the 5,830-pound dragon costume, and while the dragon isn't holding a shiny purse it looks enough like the dragon is that I like that interpretation instead.
So in hospitality there were a couple people playing this musical card game that looked interesting yet inexplicable. Each card somehow had coded to it a lick of music and putting them together on the deck that's all but invisible in the lighting produced song loops. I have no idea what this is or how it's structured as a game but the idea fascinated us.
Taking Archimedes out for another bit of prowling around.
Here, my camera looks at the various lighting requirements of this frame, throws up its arms, and says, ``Yeah, good luck.''
Archimedes nestling down and trying to hatch the Tivo remote.
Hey, karaoke has started! People singing makes for great photographs!

PS: My 2019 Mathematics A To Z: Hamiltonian, about a way of doing mathematical physics that puts in a lot of computational and conceptual overhead! Surely that pays off?
