Hikers exploring England’s Derbyshire Peak District earlier this week stumbled onto a rare phenomenon caused by extreme winds. The River Downfall, a 30-meter (98 foot) waterfall was blown back almost vertically by a powerful updraft, making it seem as if the waterfall was simply flowing into nothing. Very cool.

Banksy just published photos of a new piece titled Girl with a Pierced Eardrum, a take on Vermeer’s famous Girl with a Pearl Earring, replacing the girl’s earring with an outdoor security alarm. The mural appears in his hometown of Bristol, UK where he last painted the Mobile Lovers piece earlier this year.

Installed earlier this month on the western coastline of New Providence in Nassau, Bahamas, “Ocean Atlas,” is the lastest underwater sculpture by artist Jason deCaires Taylor (previously), known for his pioneering effort to build submerged sculpture parks in oceans around the world. Taylor’s cement figures are constructed with a sustainable pH-neutral material that encourages the growth of coral and other marine wildlife, effectively forming an artificial reef that draws tourists away from diving hotspots in over-stressed areas.
Towering 18 feet tall and weighing in at more than 60 tons, Ocean Atlas is reportedly the largest sculpture ever deployed underwater. The artwork depicts a local Bahamian girl carrying the weight of the ocean above her in reference to the Ancient Greek myth of Atlas, the primordial Titan who held up the celestial spheres. The piece was commissioned by B.R.E.E.F (Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation), as part of an ongoing effort to build an underwater sculpture garden in honor of its founder, Sir Nicholas Nuttal. You can see a bit more over on Atlas Obscura and at the Creator’s Project, who are working on a documentary about the piece.
Very quickly, here's how a computer works at the simplest level.
Want to see how computers store data? This next device is called a 'D-Latch'. It holds a binary bit. The top switch is the value to be stored, the bottom switch enables storage. Eight of these devices can be used to store a byte in memory.

Welcome to PHILOSPHY WEEK!
This week we have five comics that touch on some of my favorite philosophical ideas. Today’s comic touches on one of my very very favorites.
There are a few topics I can’t get enough of, and cultural conceptions of where intelligence is located in the body is one of them for me. My appetite for information on this topic is insatiable. Please, send me articles.
Where is intelligence in the body? We are so trained in the knowledge that intelligence comes from the brain that it is hard to really appreciate how novel of a question this must have once been. And, while I gain incredible enjoyment out of mocking inaccurate beliefs of the past, this one was hard to figure out. As much as one’s head might hurt after a hard day of thinking, the idea that thought originates in the brain is not apparent.
Don’t let it not being fair stop you from laughing at these wrong wrong old ideas. The people who had them are all dead! Relentless mock Descartes! Enjoy stories about Egyptians scrambling dead people’s brains because the didn’t think they were important! It’s all fine by me.
Big ups to Galen, who was relatively on the money with this stuff considering how far back that dude was.
Big ups to Rene Descartes for inventing Cartesian coordinates and nothing else.
Big ups to Aristotle for agreeing to be in today’s comic.
And big ups to whoever invented comics. Thanks!
It’s Day 4 of Philosophy Week!
I love Gongsun Long. So much so that when I [url=http://cowbirdsinlove.com/52]initially drew Gongsun Long[/url], I gave him basically the same character design that I use for myself today. When he returned to the comic around comic 1287, I cemented my theft of the short hair, brown skin, blue shirt look.
One of the things I love about the White Horse Paradox is that Gongsun Long is not trying to prove some crazy fact about reality. Rather, he is trying to prove out through reasonable statements something unreasonable, causing us to reflect on the nature of identity. We can say a white horse is a horse, but we can also say that a white horse is not a horse, in the sense that those are not identical concepts.
One of the things I love about this comic is that with regards to horse drawing I just kinda decided that my best attempted horse drawing isn’t much better than my worst attempted horse drawing, so I just decided to wing it.
I know if I ever need to be published in a serious horse illustration journal I’ll have to clean up my act, but for now, giving myself permission to draw bad horses has been incredibly therapeutic.
I hope you join me tomorrow, as we wrap up Philosophy Week and LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE.

The man being berated is Marty Rathbun, who spent two and a half decades in the church, rising to become a top official there before breaking away in 2004. On his blog, Rathbun writes that the people berating him in the video are three of the current top management personnel named Jenny Linson, Marc Yager, and Dave Bloomberg.
On Sunday evening, Rathbun posted this bizarre 2-minute video, a video he had taken earlier in the day while he was waiting at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight back to his home in Texas. Rathbun thinks the entire thing was a set up because Rathbun points out "there was only one carry-on bag for the three of them." The way they spoke was also very calculated and seems pretty clear it was well rehearsed.
