Da Vinci: An Overrated Genius

Image result for da vinci
Leonardo Da Vinci was an architect, musician, engineer, scientist, and inventor.

He’s also one of the most overrated people in the history of the world.

Da Vinci is heralded as a genius, and yeah, on the surface it seems like he is, but take a step back for a second. Back when he was alive, what it took to be considered a “genius” wasn’t what it is today. If you could paint a nice picture you’d be considered a genius. I’ve seen chimpanzees paint decent pictures, and that was even with a break from the canvas to fling their own feces at someone walking past their cage.

The Mona Lisa is considered Da Vinci’s masterpiece and one of the greatest paintings of all time. Have you looked at it lately? At best, it’s an okay painting of an ugly woman. I don’t care if his technique was great. Good for him, he could hold his brush properly. I want to see results, I don’t care if the artist holds the brush backwards and between their teeth as long as they get the job done.

Da Vinci is also credited with designing the first helicopter, airplane, tank, and parachute. These are all things that he drew and didn’t actually build. I say he shouldn’t get any accolades for that. I mean, look at his helicopter:

Seriously? That thing has no chance in hell of getting off the ground. I don’t think you get credit for inventing helicopters if all you did was doodle a half-assed one in a notebook.

If that’s all it takes to get some credit, then check this out:

Time Machine

You know what that is? It’s a time machine. 

What’s that? There’s no way it works? Too bad, I drew it. It's a done deal. I can’t wait for all the textbooks 600 years from now to talk about what a genius I am.

Also, The Reigle Code, is going to be  best-selling novel, but the film adaptation will be a box office flop.

P.S. That drawing of the guy in a circle with a bunch of arms and legs is pretty stupid too.
