The Secrets Behind Mona Lisa's Smile


There are numerous theories about Mona Lisa'€™s identity,
and more than a dozen others from Da Vinci'€™s time are thought to have been the sitter for the portrait, including the revered artist'€™s male assistant (and, some say, possible lover), Gian Giacomo Caprotti da Oreno, better known as Salaì. Other researchers have even posited that the painting is indeed a self-portrait. - - Interesting

Your Say

Is she smiling or smirking?
The answer is in the eye of the beholder.

"Some say" is elitist nudge code for feeding, drop by drop, any new idea to hoi polloi. In this instance, it's bullshit Gaystapo-activist propaganda. They'll claim every great mind, including God's, as being oriented toward a perverse gratification of primal bodily urges. They'll cloak themselves within the aura of whomever they perceive to have the highest IQ, income, talent, or motives. They'll ascribe to anyone who does not fully embrace their perversions every vile label of stupidity and hatred they can manage. It pains them when great minds or talents are found to be merely promiscuously hetero--so great is their need for totalitarian acceptance of the narrative-- so they'll "some say" a whisper of bi-sexual tendencies. Everyone worth knowing must be 50 Shades of Gay.

It can never be that they lose the well-managed perception of how awesome and preferable their lifestyle is. Perception is their only means of self-propagation. And since they can't create life, they can only pervert and convert it. Much like the Devil.

Joan: the commie bastards use the "lowest common denominator" strategy to level the field. They strive to bring everyone down to their level.

I've found that a good hard punch in the face is a great leveler.

The elevate the lowest to the highest and nudge everyone to accept the new norm.

If you have Truth, you are a nail in a sure place. They can hammer, but I'm never bending, never sinking down to their level. They try to hammer me down, their hand is gonna hurt.
