Steam in the subway, earth is afire
It was a week of comic strips and repurposed content on my mathematics blog! What comic strips? What content? These:
The story strips? What's Going On In Judge Parker? And Who's Fleeing What? 25 December 2017 - 18 March 2018. Enjoy that. And now how about more of Friday at AnthrOhio 2017?
Cake matrix: the eleven decorated cakes as presented for Alkali's judgement.
And a close-up better showing (on the left) my and bunny_hugger's cakes,a long with some of the others that I can't fully explain. Well, the robot dragon I can explain. I think the lake in a forest is a video game thing?
And the fate of all decorated cakes: the winning and the losing cakes brought to hospitality/con suite, there to join the rest of the abundant food and get eaten up.
The fractured event-schedule board. Since it would be the last of the conventions at this hotel we took more photographs of routine little boring stuff like this.
Message board, almost filled up by Friday evening. On the right board you might be able to make out bunny_hugger's advertisement for her pinball talk.
Ars longa, vita ... well, everybody's cake gets eaten eventually. This wasn't even 11 pm Friday.
Trivia: In 1895 E M Fraser of San Francisco patented a duplex-motor-system elevator; by March 1899 a dozen of the smooth-running lifts were installed around the city.
