Leonardo da Vinci: Being A Polymath Is Not Illegal In Utah

Leonardo da Vinci was a true Renaissance man: he was a painter, a sculptor, an engineer, and an inventor, not to mention what one historian calls his “mad macrame skillz.”

In the arts, da Vinci is known for painting both The Last Supper and Mona Lisa. Plus, “Seinfeld” was his idea.

In the sciences, da Vinci’s notebooks are filled with drawings of helicopters and something he called “thee grille of Goode sir Geo. Foreman, Esq.” He also made many anatomical drawings, which was pretty much the only porn that existed until National Geographic magazine came along hundreds of years later.

These days, people know about da Vinci through Dan Brown’s popular book “The da Vinci Code.” This is, of course, a work of fiction–there is no code in da Vinci’s works, though Mona Lisa does contain a hidden Sudoku puzzle. Plus, Dan Brown’s book is really, truly, horrendously awful. Have you tried reading that shit? Damn, Slappy.
