This Is The First Ever Photo Of Canada (via This Is The First Ever Photo Of Canada)
Behold the first photograph ever captured in the Great White North.
Taken in 1840 (yes, technically before Canada was actually a country, but stop being so persnickety), the picture of Niagara Falls was discovered in 1997 at Newcastle University in England, where it had been sitting forgotten in the Special Collections of the school’s library. Taken by British businessman Hugh Lee Pattinson on a trip to Canada, it was given to the school by his family.
The image is a daguerreotype, an early form of photograph that required a long exposure time. The picture took around 10 minutes to capture, leading many to suggest the figure in the bottom left corner is Pattinson himself.
The photo went viral on Reddit this week, racking up tens of thousands of views. Clever Redditors even took the time to enhance the image and flip it. The original was inverted as part of the daguerreotype process.

Tumblr I need your help. I’m trying to do some planning for my Ace cosplay and I need to decide:
Does Ace’s Alabasta robe thing look like black or navy blue to you guys? IDK it could be black, but it could also be really dark navy blue. I don’t think it’s quite the same color as, say, Sanji’s black suit. I bought a black trench coat yesterday to alter for this part of the cosplay, but IDK maybe I should return it and hold out for a navy blue one. Opinions???
Leslie Morgan Steiner was in an abusive relationship, though at first she didn’t realize it. In a talk at TEDxRainier, she tells the disturbing story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.
If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence or an absuive relationship, you can find a list of resources here. The U.S. National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-4673 (HOPE), and RAINN offers a secure online hotline.
That’s my girl! Rows by herself into the mist that no one has ever escaped from, finds her friends in like two minutes flat, and rows up with a boat full of treasure and a mouth full of sass.
reasons why Nami is the best.;)
Why yes, she is the best, isn’t she? (And Robin, too. She hasn’t gotten to do much yet as part of the crew, but every time she does do something, she’s freaking awesome. This show has some fantastic ladies in it, let me tell you.)
