This One I Knew

Leonardo da Vinci wrote notebook entries in mirror (backwards) script, a trick that kept many of his observations from being widely known until decades after his death.

I do a lot of writing upside down.
If I'm at someone's desk at work, and I need to leave them a note, I'll lean over and write it, upside down for me, and right side up for them.
It's a gift :::::shrug:::::

Joy I knew that he did this as well. It's too bad it isn't necessary today. All you have to do to hide you thought today, is write as an adult would, and most of the population can't/won't read what you have written.
