One of the most pointless projects in recent times would have to be the search for Mona Lisa’s body.Yes, Archaeologists have been shoveling dirt in Florence looking for the skeleton of Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo who is believed to have been Leonardo Da Vinci’s muse for the world famous painting Mona Lisa. What the hell for, you may well ask? Hmm, well they want to reconstruct her face so they can compare it to the painting to prove once and for all Del Giocondo was Mona Lisa. A few days ago they unearthed a skeleton (including skull) that they believe are the remains of Lisa and now they are just waiting on DNA to confirm it. Can’t wait.
Still no cure for cancer.
