It’s Leo! Today’s teens go gaga for none other than the one, the only, the brilliant Leonardo da V–

Hold on, we’ve just been passed a note.

…well who the heck is Leonardo DiCaprio? Naw, naw, it’s Leonardo da Vinci! That’s the one you should be in awe of. He’s like The Wolf of Wall Street but for learning rather than ’80s excess. You know he not only invented the parachute but the reason anyone would need a parachute with the helicopter? He had more good ideas before breakfast than you’ll ever have in your life, unless you’re the guy who invented the salad spinner, in which case, BIG THUMBS UP TO YOU, GUY! You’re going places.

The rest of us sit back and bask in the wonder that is history’s greatest mind.

And that was the story of how da Vinci got his demons.

Jacopo della Quercia is a man of many talents who somehow eluded death in 1438. He can regularly be found at Cracked and on Twitter @Jacopo_della_Q

The man is so full of greatness it's choking him.
