Once, many years ago, my father travelled out into the deserts of Arizona at night, and once he was far enough out he turned off his motorbike and lay staring at the stars and listening to the silence. He said he saw every star in the sky in the utter darkness and that the silence was so profound it hurt his ears with its clamouring.

One day I hope to do as he did.

So I just read this story about a girl who bummed a cigarette off of David Bowie and didn’t realise it was him until afterwards and she turned around and he’d vanished, its beautiful. Here:

'A friend bummed a cigarette off of Bowie in Toronto and didn't even realise it was him until she started to walk away. It was really funny, because when she went up to him and said 'excuse me' he was all startled and said 'yeah? what do you want?' thinking she was a crazed-out fan. But all she did was ask for a cigarette. And he smiled and said 'Well, seeing as it's so cold out…' and he opened his hand and there was a cigarette in it.
When she realized it was him she turned around…and he was gone.”

THAT IS FUCKING TERRIFYING WHY DO PEOPLE FIND THAT BEAUTIFUL?! THERE’S A BIG FUCKING GAPING HOLE IN THE MOTHERFUCKIN OCEAN AND WATER IS DISAPPEARING INTO IT WHERE DOES IT GO?!

*Under The Sea starts playing*

Anyone know where this is?

This is off the Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean! And actually it’s not really a waterfall, it’s the underwater sediment/minerals and sand that is being swept off the continental shelf into the epipelagic waters  by some pretty strong currents, creating a sort of illusion that the water itself is rushing over into a waterfall. It’s a pretty cool illusion though! 
There aren’t ever such things as underwater waterfalls or rivers that are just made out of water since water is technically all the same density (besides fresh and saltwater) and the only thing that separates it would be the salinity and/or the thermocline!
But when water is actually mixed with something denser, such as hydrogen sulfide or perhaps salt water crashing with fresh water, it can actually form underwater rivers such as the one in Mexico!
