Will Wonders Never Cease?!

So we went to a lecture at State this afternoon.

And by "we" I mean all of the usual suspects. 
It was a great lecture!
Mr. Big Food introduced Professor Prinz 
to a standing room only crowd.
Here I must interject logistical detail. Referring to the seating chart (above) you will note that the front row has three seats. I occupied the left-most (as it appears in the photo), figuring that at the Conclusion of his Introduction Mr. Big Food would jump off the stage and occupy the empty seat to my left (right in the photo). 

My figuring was thwarted by these two lovely young women-- who paid close attention throughout the lecture but who came in rather late and proceeded to occupy the two seats to my left leaving Mr. Big Food with no place to sit!

So. Under the radar, I snagged a crappy old chair chair for Mr. Big Food, positioned it properly as a 4th, and at the Conclusion of his Introduction, asked the two young women to slide down. Worked wonderfully. Except I lost my primo photo snapping space. 

As you an clearly see.
It was a good talk!

There was reference to Hume. 
There was a slide of a brain. 
There was some talk of religion and art. That was fun. 

And then there were some questions and a bit of discussion. It was a good talk. Oh! And there were photos of babies and monkeys and apes!!

Who doesn't love babies? and monkeys and apes?

I went outside. Met up with A. Leland. We watched the toddlers as we finished our cigarettes. We figured they couldn't have been walking for more than a month. 

Will wonders never cease?
