"The Renaissance," says my history prof, "was when artists finally, FINALLY, admitted that people were naked under their clothes."

This is the same prof who told us about the time he was standing somewhere in Rome, looking at a little piece of broken wood claiming to be part of the Cross, and two English women were murmuring in awe, and he turned and told them "Madam, if I took all the supposed pieces of the Cross and put them together, I could build a bloody big boat." Apparently there are enough pieces in existence to build a fleet big enough to re-enact at least a couple of the Crusades. "They looked quite shocked," he says. "I think they must have thought I was an American."

Ah, Da Vinci. Did not know Latin or Greek, so was not *really* a Renaissance Man.

Still cool. :P
