Born 1452 — Died 1519.
Also known as:
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci ("Leonardo, son of Mr. Peter of Vinci"), "Renaissance Man."
Harassed by Renaissance bullies saying:
"Hey, Leo! Why don't you invent yourself a personality!"
Got even with Renaissance bullies by:
Sending them up in his helicopter prototype, then "forgetting" to bring them down for two days.
Peanut butter, jelly, and potato chips on Italian bread. Da Vinci? Da Licious!
Was good at:
Uh... everything. That's why he's a "Renaissance Man."
Despite inventing a "Footwear Chooser Thingy" (working title), da Vinci's socks were always mismatched.
Likely to say:
"Sure I'll invent weapons for you. But then I'll hide my plans so that no one ever builds them. War is not the answer."
Unlikely to say:
"Sorry, I can't do that."
Whenever he got an idea, a little candle appeared over his head (because the light bulb was not yet invented, you see...)
Reason little-known fact is little known:
It's not true.
Favorite ice cream:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Leonar-dough.
