calgary native victor liu spends one night every week, regardless of the season or weather, camped out alone under the stars at banff or jasper, where he occasionally, with use of his self timer, captures photos of himself with the northern lights and milky way.

"nothing is better than watching aurora borealis in winter on a layer of thin ice," he said, adding, "i love the night sky, it is a complete transformation and helps you feel connected to the universe."

Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish. 

THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS

Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.

Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.

For a long time I never really took the men’s rights movement very seriously. This oppressive “no shorts in the workplace” policy has really opened my eyes. 

And people ask me why I find these MRAs so pathetically and embarrassingly stupid.
