In a remarkable rebound after yesterday's Downgrademageddon, the Dow Jones gained 430 points today and finished above the 11,000 benchmark.

Artist Injected Herself With Horse Blood To Feel More Like A Horse

Two French performance artists, Marion Laval-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin, put together a piece called "Que le cheval vive en moi" (May the horse live in me). The two have "been exploring trans-species relationships and the questioning of scientific methods and tools for 20 years now." Because why not? Awesome. Photos, video, and more info inside.
