It appears Mona Lisa, who has been captivating people for centuries, just got much more interesting. Art detectives have discovered that one of the worlds most famous paintings contains small letters and numbers put there intentionally by Leonardo Da Vinci:
Hidden in the dark paint of her pupils are tiny letters and numbers, placed there by the artist Leonardo da Vinci and revealed only now thanks to high-magnification techniques.
Experts say the barely distinguishable letters and numbers represent something of a real-life Da Vinci code.
The revelation could have come straight from the pages of Dan Browns best-seller The Da Vinci Code, in which the Mona Lisa is said to contain hidden clues about the Holy Grail.

eh? It was paint by numbers???
If something required that kind of magnification to see, how did Da Vinci even put them there? Could he see what he was writing? What paint brush did he have back then, that could write that small?
So the guy signed his own painting?
Maybe he was such a brilliant mind, he invented a time machine and transported to the future - acquired a gadget - and then zipped back and stuck it in there?
Maybe on one of his trips to the future he read The DaVinci Code, and now he’s played a practical joke on all of us?
If the Liberals and Elites placed 1% of the faith they placed in man into faith in God, the world be a much better place.
The fine print say's to head to China before 2012 and get a job working on one of the arks so you can sneak aboard when the time comes.
My thoughts exactly
>>If something required that kind of magnification to see, how did Da Vinci even put them there<<
People from my home world have been visiting this planet since before any “as yet found” human history (though there is still some juicy stuff you will find if you folks ever get off your duffs and start exploring the ocean floor). Da Vincy was one that exposed a little more of our technology than we were comfortable with.
I’ll confess that he got this one past us. We had pretty much put it to bed. We thought.
Sort along the lines I was thinking. Will be interesting to see how long this story stands under scrutiny.
In other words, a pre-conception led to an invalid "conceived" find...
It’s true, it’s true. Islander7 proved it last night:
The magnifying glass was invented a couple hundred years before Da Vinci's birth. Painting with a single hair or bristle wouldn't have been too shocking either.
“For a good time call ....”
If it reads along the lines of “23/350,” then somebody got screwed.
