We bought our fish the most awesome ever toy. It is a light-up volcano with bubble action. This photo shows it looking sort of so-so:

But this captures the "OMG, the aquarium is on fire!!" cognitive dissonance of the volcano best:

Aquarium fire!

The live effect of the volcano is somewhere in between the two photos. It is mighty fine.

The fish are, predictably, scared out of their ever-living minds at the thing, and have been trying desperately to swim away from it. But soon they will come to appreciate the volcano and we can all be happy.

Edited to add:

Goats at the Faire

| | Comments (1)

Yesterday we went to the Maker Faire in San Mateo. It was OK, although very crowded and a lot of the projects really weren't ready; it was more science fair than technonerd fair, in my opinion. But I'm slightly prejudiced as I've had a tech startup in my dining room for the last three years, so my threshold of impressiveness is fairly high.

On the other hand, there were cute little goats.

They were pretty playful at the end of the day, when the sun was going down and they heat was fading.

I made some movies of them playing.

This one started with us looking at the goats eating from their feeder, then there was a dramatic goat-fight on the pile featuring one of the finest GWF (Goat Wrestling Federation) moves ever.

And this one shows more of what was happening most of the time we watched them.
