To add to the 4th article: weighing more itself can be a problem, as my grandfather has a bad leg and his obesity doesn't help it.

Michelangelo also supposadly hid an entire diagram of the nervous system on one of the people on the Sistine Chapel's ceiling, and he also has, in another part of it, an angel essentially flipping of the Pope because Michelangelo thought of himself as a sculpter, not a painter, and wasn't happy being forced to paint.

Leonardo da Vinci also did stuff like that (hide stuff in his paintings, like musical notes in his painting of the "Last Supper.")

Who want's to go to Vegas?

Also: I think those professors have too much time on their hands. So what if a guy whose been dead for hundreds of years liked to draw brains in his paintings? Don't they have some more useful activity they could be doing?

Yea right unless you have $55,000 USD just hanging around, and you don't want another BMW then Virtusphere is for you.

I like that. A sea forming "right now," meaning 10 million years. You go do that..

Hmm...I feel as if 8 billion people will be wiped out within 1 generation once such technology is made.

Even better than that he painted God waving his ass at the pope on the ceiling.

First page: Awesome!

Second page: Isn't the red sea splitting a biblical thing?

Third page: Though I love michaelangelo... Not interesting.

Fourth page: I like that I keep being proof against science despite the fact that the science is trying to help me. Makes me feel like one of those spoiled kids. I could be healthier as a fatass... but I'm not, I want to be skinny and muscular, fuck you science, you're lying to me!!!

Could people who study history be doing something more cool than finding a hidden historical piece? I highly doubt it.

Okay, maybe I could have phrased that better. Maybe I should have said, "Why does this matter?" or "How does this affect what we already know about Michelangelo? And how does it affect our perceptions of the present?"

It doesn't, but neither do most anything we discover these days. I remember hearing that blue dye they put in candy might be able to repair spinal cord injuries. While that "might" was definitely a good reason to move forward, I haven't heard anything of it since, so I doubt it actually started working. So, in the end, it didn't matter. And the same can be said for anything we find. Hell, for all we know, he drew a treasure map in the brain of god and found the mayan doomsday device, and we need to find it before 2012.

In the end, learning that he drew a brain, while seemingly unimportant, is just as important as anything else we find short of a cure for something or a way to kill something.

Wow. I was sceptical as to whether or not I'd be able to expereince something like the virtusphere in my lifetime, but to think that it already exists and I can...
That's pretty awesome!
