It's not as funny to hear people try to pronounce that. It actually sounds like someone who is daunted by trying to pronounce it.

So true. The 1830s were an interesting time in contrast to today. But be glad you don't live in interesting times!

Surprising how few people know about the first photographs. Especially if you see how much people know about (imo) more trivial things on this site. And Im not talking about current things like popsingers (like the weird comments OMG I cant believe more people know *insert current popartist* than *insert someone from a deacde ago*). \

I would think the coming of photography a rather big thing. Modern times would be the same without it ;) but the leader of some group, somewhere, for a few years. People know.

I might be slightly biased, cause I am interested in inventions. But even if I didnt know it, I think my opinion would be the same. That it is weird how we dont know about the origin of some things that play a big role in our lives, but know some other trivial things in great detail.

I definitely learned about this in the several photography classes that I took in high school and at university... and I think it also came up in more general history classes though more in passing.
