The remains of R. A. Fisher are visited by Bayesians again

Thanks to Phillip Alday, the second edition of Doing Bayesian Data Analysis has visited the remains of R. A. Fisher at St. Peter's Cathedral in Adelaide. Here is a photo that Phillip snapped: 
In a previous post, the first edition visited Fisher's remains. The book has also visited Bayes tomb, Laplace's memorial, and Jacob Bernoulli's grave. The goal here is to have some fun and pique some historical interest, not to show any (serious) disrespect. If you pose the book at sites of other relevant people, dead or not-quite-yet-dead, let me know!
