Listen: Greg Greg, Greg Mchugh, Vinci discussed on Timesuck with Dan Cummins
"C. k. eight zero. That's like receiving eight meals for free. When you go to hellofresh dot com time suck eighty enter the code t. I m. e. s. u. C. p._k. Eight zero lincoln the description now. Let's talk about some crazy ass davinci weapons four seventy five poss- possibly ninety six leonardo gets into the missile launching business sketches design for giant crossbow like a really big crossbow. The effort put into design components indicates that he was striving to realize it as it's a workable weapon. The structure is huge. It's dimensions can be judged when comparing machine to drive a man who's operating it. The bow was made within would on six wheels twenty-seven yards arts across made up of thirty nine separate parts this giant crossbow we'd be cranked winding gears had two different firing mechanisms the simplest of which involve aww releasing a holding pen by striking it with a mallet if successfully built it would've been able to shoot giant rocks other huge projectiles very fast across the battlefield reminds reminds me of how the plague suck we talked about launching plague infected bodies through the air with a tributary would if you could shoot infected dude across about if it was a giant crossbow loud the greg greg greg crossbow fire that greg mchugh magistrate a giant crossbow the battlefield i mean they did already have cannons but i think a giant crossbow way more intimidating. That's that's like straight out of game of thrones like. It's like one of those things us. Try and kill the dragons with what are they gonna make giant eros you know just shooting shoot him to the bathroom like just just just make shishkabob enemy dudes with the era was on fire. What if you could make a flaming human shish kebab. It's a good thing vlad. The impaler ruled few decades before da. Vinci didn't get ahold of that weapon. He'd have been shishkabob. Motherfuckers left right for wlac. Ya also around forty five leonardo da vinci sketched designs signs for some other vehicles of war. One idea was a sized chariot. My god this is something like grim reaper graphic novel type shit the size chariot gary it was propelled by horses with a pillion rider and carried in front of it foresights mounted on a revolving gear turned by a shaft driven by the wheels of a cart behind the horses. It was like it was like having a chariot with huge helicopter blade just out in front. If all the blades were essentially giant fucking sorts just four huge sword blades spin around charlton people's arms and heads off shit or malfunctioning and chopping off the horse had there was pulling the chariot or pulling the chopping off the head of the driver leonardo. It did note this particular idea. Was you know maybe not as best. Maybe had the potential to do. A lot of collateral damage probably best that one stays in no book leonardo leonardo it also drew a sketch and nobody's during this time about a what was basically a tank davinci's tank was said to be propelled. We're supposed to be propelled by two men powering crankshafts. Although the drawing self looks quite finished the mechanics apparently a fully developed because if built drawing the tank with a lot of effort might be he made to rotate on the spot would never progress before direction but in a in a bbc documentary was such good title leonardo the man who wanted to know everything a military team built machine and just made one slight little tweak <hes> found that you know they just had to change one of the gears and that it did actually work really well. <hes> these guys were were moving around around one guys. You know <hes> mankind of the top part of like the turrets. There's a couple of guys chris. Turn in these gears making the tank actually move leonardo's notebooks also <hes> <hes> showed cannons which he claimed could hurl small stones like a storm with the smoke of these causing great territory enemy in great loss confusion. These canons would come out of the tank and an armoured moving vehicle capable of shooting numerous projectiles if you sent those across the battlefield annual shoot at the enemy of the giant sucking crossbow. I feel like psychological. Intimidation alone is going to win when you some battles and enemies would just be so confused. At what does it he saw a what did they think that they do win. Who the making."
