I did not know that. I think you could spend your entire life researching DaVinci's life and you'd still find more...

He was a midget. I used to push him around in the sixth grade. Loud mouth punk he was. Always trying to cheat on my math tests as well.


I think they prefer little people. :-b

I have an autistic cousin who can draw with both hands at the same time. He can either draw identical pictures, or two different things, it's pretty cool.

My English teacher can do that, except he's only so-so at it. I think he must practice or something cause he can only do a few things. Pretty cool though.

I can draw with one hand and write with the other...the only problem is you can't read what I wrote and can't tell what I drew. :-?

Anyway, I think this is a great thread that IS different from the Did You Know thread. Did You Know indicates the information given is definately true, but perhaps not very well known. Useless Information isn't necessarily true - could just be rumor or speculation - because after all, can information be any more useless than if it isn't true? :-b

Also, if sharks stop swimming they'll die because for their gills to work, they have to have water flowing through them.

They sleep while moving, unless it is a nurse shark or the others mentioned above
