Man there is so much crap out there on him that the more of it that gets released, the more skewed the truth gets. The most convincing evidence I've seen and read points to him being a Spaniard above anything else.

He could have been Jewish from what I heard....I think that will finish his legacy. No more Columbus Day's.

Seriously, he thought he was invading India and was basically an asshole. He shouldn't be honored with a holiday.

Today I learned October 9th is Leif Erikson Day.

Can we please ditch Columbus Day as a real holiday in favor of this? It would be 1000% more awesome...

Vikings > Europeans: check
Erikson > Columbus: check
Thor > Jesus: who got nailed to a cross and who carries a hammer around?
