Big deal, I just ate ice cream. Bet old Leo never had ice cream!

Having sex with little boys. Because he was a pedo.
 
2019-05-12 09:48:33 AM  
He was 2 years into a painting that took him 12 years to finish so we're about even on the doing things in a hurry scale.

Barnacles!: starting work on the Mona Lisa.


Mine is ending work on the Mona Lisa.
And St.John the Baptist, and The Virgin and the Child with St.Anne.

Skull-farking... er, farking around with a skull, apparently.

Ask me again in 5 weeks, and it'd be the Vitruvian Man.

At the age of [redacted], Leonardo found the time to explore his passion for human anatomy.

At least we have the same hobbies.

"It's a sobering thought, for example, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years." - Tom Lehrer at age 37 doing "That Was the Year that Was"

So what was Leonardo doing at that age

"The year he turned 37, Leonardo obtained a human skull and made a series of fantastically accurate anatomical drawings that were well ahead of their time, and included an analysis of the skull's internal proportions and functions."

Farting around on a couple paintings.  Big whoop.

The dude was definitely not skating marathons, so he clearly did not amount to much of anything.

:-D
 
2019-05-12 10:04:09 AM  
Drew a map of a town. Big deal. I used to draw hundreds of maps, for insurance companies, a quarter of a century before that schmuck sketched Imola.

Bet he didn't know how far it was to his nearest primary care physician, the loser.

Drawing The Battle of Anghiari in  the Basillica of Santa Maria Novella in Florence. Then failing to apply the paint and giving up on the whole project.

Working on his last three paintings and eating pizza with the other ninja turtles.

He drew a map.

hahaha loser

/i meant me
 
2019-05-12 10:07:50 AM  
When he was 38 he did the Vitruvian Man thing. Bah! I just made chocolate lava cakes for my mom and grandmother. I think my contribution to society is by far the greater achievement.
 
2019-05-12 10:10:21 AM  
Ha!. I've already outlived him. By two years. Now I feel old...

At least he lived a century before buses were invented.

Yeah, so this Leandro Di Capricio chap also thought hard-ons were due to air tubes connected to the lungs. Hack.

No need to run. That is an awesome comment!

And to answer your question, "Much better, thank you!"

Procrastinating to call his mother on Mothers Day?

Coincidentally...
 
2019-05-12 10:37:44 AM  
Meh, he probably wasn't diamond level Terran player in SC2, nor did he get ALL of the single player Achievements in Doom.  So bite me.
