I say we restore that thing and set it on fire.

Fuck that scumbag.


#3

In before the first “Columbus was an awful human being” post! Ah, damn, I’m getting slow…


#4

Little known fact: Columbus had a fourth ship called the Sin Prudencia.

It fell over the edge.


#5

I know! Don’t you just hate it when people have actually read about stuff? Whatever happened to passively regurgitating centuries-old propaganda, that’s what I want to know.


#6

…as opposed to hot, up-to-the-minute propaganda. :wink:


#7

Oh, tots! I mean, like, you “discover” the New World and commit genocide, and all of sudden the PC police want to burn your ship!


#8

Yes. We should destroy all the artifacts left over by those we feel have committed wrongs in history, because this will help our society to… Wait, what are we doing again?


#9

Should we rephrase news of the ‘discovery’ of the higgs boson because there is most certainly another civilization that was aware of it?


#10

I knew the indigenous peoples of the New World were advanced, but I had no idea they had particle accelerators!


#11

Excuse me sir, to the indigenous it wasn’t the “New World”, as you call it.


#12

One of the benefits of committing genocide is the right to rename the conquered’s lands. Fairly well established historically.


#13

You have a problem with “discover” but think “New World” is ok?


#14

Wait, the sarcasm recursion level is getting too deep. Are you asking if I have a problem with use of “discover” or with ““discover””?


#15

How can something be new if it wasn’t discovered?


#16

Were the New Kids on the Block known as Kids on the Block prior to their discovery?


#17

No, according to the Wikipedia they were known as Nynuk


#18

Sure it was. They came here from Asia ~15K years ago.


#19

Really, prehistoric Asians called this land the New World?

Fucking weird.


#20

Just don’t rename the New World Symphony, okay guys? Dvorak can’t even fight back. Then again, I suppose Columbus can’t either.
