    Thanks for reminding me it’s Monday with this sweet metazoan PZ! I thought it was Thursday!

    I did a nature program for a group of preschoolers today. Every single female child was wearing something that color. When did this become a law, and what are the penalties for female people who don’t wear the color 24/7?

    Must be a female . . . (ducks, runs, hides really well).

    Mary can retire now, that’s the most horrifying metazoan ever. I’ll be having nightmares. In pink.

    By the way, where are it’s real eyes?

    Trebuchet,

    Starting from the two white patches, follow the outline of the ‘bridge’ of what isn’t a human style nose upward and outward.

    You’ll find two sideways oriented clear corneas with refracted light patterns that mark bulges which cover the eyeballs.

    Not that I’ve ever laid eyes before on something as fabulous as this fish.

    Death’s face surrounded by gaudy Brazilian Mardi Gras plumes, all in the color of the famous pink goo.

    No doubt intended to prevent any sort of comprehension or reasoned reaction.

    A fish that mimics a rotting fish corpse – including holes in the fins, the flaky surface and white eyes – not bad!

    i & em: redundant from the human reader’s pov
    b & strong: redundant from the human reader’s pov

    Point 2 on this page is the only relevant thing I know of: http://golem.ph.utexas.edu/~distler/blog/archives/000218.html

    Oh, you beat me to it.

    You can google this one yourself though ;)

    That’s interesting about aural readers, thanks.
    I think I already knew about i, b, em & strong–there are some fonts or browsers that do something other than italicize for ‘emphasis’ (like, maybe an underline instead?) and similarly have some alternative to bolding for more strength. iirc.

    or wait, (d’oh) is that a reader thing too?
