Happy New Year from Top Men and Top Women!
The human body is a miracle of design and a wonder of beauty, especially when viewed comparatively. (Increased color saturation doesn’t hurt either.)
Top Women are particularly intrigued with the human eye – like those displayed in this… ahem… iArt. The diversity in color and structure is nothing short of amazing.
Next on Top Women’s agenda is finding the perfect high-resolution retinal photography for the teeming masses!
A series of rotating buildings based on Dynamic Architecture will be built around the world, starting in Dubai, U.A.E. The Dynamic Architecture concept was introduced by Florentine architect David Fisher. (Live Science)
Top Women want homes in one of those buildings, so we’re stocking up on Dramamine and working out on the treadmill in preparation of chasing down our apartments once we’ve been delivered to our floors!

Span the ages of world renowned art in this video.
Top Women love the portrait art represented in this montage of girls (of the time) and how the expressions and facial features were matched to move and flow seamlessly throughout the video.

One leisure activity that calms Top Women’s frazzled nerves after a busy day at the lab, is plunking away at a pipe organ – attempting a toccata and fugue or two. That was one reason we were so amazed at the organ we recently viewed at Luray Caverns in Virginia. This amazing instrument (the world largest) taps the naturally resonating stalactites with rubber mallets. Listen here.
But what about other organ transplants?

Or what about this bamboo organ; the only one in the world.
And because we know Top Men like to play with fire, we’d feel remiss not to mention the this Fire Organ.
That’s not real water. That’s not a real drain. That’s not even a real hose.
Julian Beever has been on Wohba previously. But here are a few more of his sidewalk artworks that we haven’t drawn to your attention. (Pun intended.)
(All of his work is here.)
Top Women like caves. Top Men like trees. The life, the texture, the science, the symbolism, the sustenance, the possibilities, the bicycle.
Here are some trees that have lost their simple goal of reaching skyward – still amazing, but now bent and twisted to the will of man.
(And, yes, Top Men like caves, too. And, yes, Top Women like trees, too. And, no, Top Men do not like the lab painted pink.)

Top Men now provide a brief reprieve from all the heavy math and outer space discussions…
… with this movie of blowing stuff up in slow motion – backwards.
(It’s what real men do to the beautiful sand sculpture work posted by Top Women a couple months ago.)
Top Women have duly noted the destructive and sadly competitive nature of Top Men once again and have found it necessary to pause from our seclusion of in depth research and study to respond and note that the lab will be painted pink this weekend.
