Apparently not! Good point! I do seem to recall a History Channel show about him that spoke of not-to-scale models of his inventions!

Have you seen replicas of his notebooks? I love his sketches. Have you seen his lines? Some start out thin stroke, then thicken, then thin again in just one stroke. Incredible. His circles were also close to perfect if not perfect. Amazing.

My guess would be, the site I went to came out before Brave. After I read you post I had to recall the movie. Really liked it. Was going to buy it and send it to my daughter. I believe she would gain something from it.

Thanks for pointing that out...by the way.

Radio waves travel so much faster than sound waves that a broadcast voice can be heard sooner 18,000 km away than in the back of the room in which it originated.

Did you know?

The Bible is the world’s most shoplifted book.

Irony alert! So do suppose these shoplifters have never heard of that 8th Commandment (thou shall not steal)?

Did you know...

If you stack one million US$1 bills, it would be 361 ft (110m) high and weight exactly 1 ton.

A million dollars’ worth of $100 bills weighs only 22 lb (10 kg).

One million dollars’ worth of one-cent coins (100 million pennies) weigh 246 tons.
