DaVinci...Oh you Kid.

A particularly humorous anecdote I ran across from the life of Leonardo da Vinci:

When the wine-grower from Belvedere found a very unusual lizard, Leonardo made wings for it out of the skin of other lizards and filled these wings with mercury so that they waved and quivered whenever the lizard moved; he likewise made eyes, a beard, and horns for it in the same way, tamed it, put it in a box, and used the lizard to terrify his friends.

I’m low on sleep and so you get this kind of post.
