Friday the 13th is cool. Friday the 13th in October is cooler. For some pre-halloween spookiness, enjoy my scary skeleton pix I took at the American Museum of Natural History.

I snapped and photoshoped this (former) critter I saw at the American Museum of Natural History.

Here are three fun papers by Roy Sorensen that arguably have something or other to do with this photograph (though probably nothing to do with intelligent design):

The Aesthetics of Mirror Imagery, Philosophical Studies 100/2 (2000) 175-191

Mirror Imagery and Biological Selection, Biology and Philosophy 17/3 (June 2002) 409-422

Para-reflections, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 54 (2003) 93-10

I’ve been having a few technical issues with the host for Brain Hammer, but hopefully a re-install of WordPress puts it back in whack. The philosophizing will be back shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this very sick horse. Also enjoy the wonderful things Chase Wrenn has done with Supergoo.

Making this pic turned out to be a lot easier than I initially suspected. I photographed the die in three different orientations, layered the three images in photoshop, erased the relevant portions, and blammo: game prop for the risk averse.
