I need a new recliner, and the furniture stores have traditionally been good about having big sales on Indigenous Peoples Day.

Wish me well!!!!

The Word.


That way, when I take a nap, my wife can tell people who call "I can't disturb him right -- he's spending some time in The Word". :smug:

Why does Columbus get credit for discovering America? He wasn't the first European to visit the Americas, much less first human.

You probably named your toilet Jim, too, so you can tell people you went to the Jim in the morning.

Nope. But there were clearly humans in the Americas before 1492.

It's not indigenous peoples day!
It's a day celebrating white boy invasion of indigenous peoples day. And the indigenous people don't concur there's reason to celebrate all that came after.

Probably because Lief Erickson day just sounds odd to most people. While Columbus discovered south America. And made three other expeditions besides. (Hispaniola, Cuba, and central America) So Columbus did discover America in a sense, just not this land where we celebrate him.
Maybe one day the wacky history will be changed to navigate more toward the truth. Generations from now today will be Solutrean day.

Since there aren't immigrants from other planets in real life, what's the point?

In fact there was not a point when I posted, just fun. But now that you mention it, there are no people in the US who did not come from outside. So we are all equally indigenous.

Oh, because the first humans in the Americas came from Asia! Siberia?
