Horribly Famous: Da Vinci and his Super-Brain

You’ve probably heard of Leonardo da Vinci. He is horribly famous for: painting the most famous picture in the world, designing the first-ever flying machine, and being THE all-round fabulous Renaissance Man. But did you know that Leonardo designed heaps of wicked weapons including a murderous machine gun, thought pink was the coolest colour for clothes, and liked to cut up people’s dead bodies to look for their souls? Yes – even though he’s dead, Leo’s still full of surprises!
