    Sorry, Grandpa. I bet you still think Venus has its day the same length as its year, right?

    The Vikings wouldn’t have known about the place if the Irish hadn’t told them about it after St. Brendan’s voyage.

    Toby is brighter than I thought.
    Is the sullen, lazy, ignorant teenager thing just an act to achieve social acceptance?

    Yeah, man . . .
    It ain’t cool to know all this stuff unless you can use it to fluster old guys who think they know all there is to know.

    Nooo. Toby just didn’t learn the 1950s version of History. Give him a few decades and he’ll be screaming at HIS grandkids the same stuff he’s saying here, and his grandkids will have a whole new paradigm they’ve learned. Prob’ly about Bigfoots and Space Aliens discovering America.

    David, Columbus (or more correctly Colombo) didn’t land in the Gulf. He landed on San Salvador in the Bahamas, in the Atlantic.

    Love Toby’s smile. As to the history …. stupid *&!%# revisionist history! Next thing will be the Martians colonized Earth when they lost their water.

    Actually Chris C. did get to the continental coast, just not on his first voyage. He got to South America on his third trip and to Central America on the fourth one.
    He never got to the continental USA, though, but that is not very relevant because America is also the name of the whole landmass. (Check your dictionaries and encyclopedias if you don’t believe me.) We also call the landmass “The Americas” to avoid the confusion with the name of the country.

    A whole lot of people “discovered” America. Columbus was the first to hold a press conference about it :D :D :D

    In the early modern period, the voyages of Columbus initiated European exploration and colonization of the American continents, and are thus of great significance in world history. Christopher Columbus was a navigator and an admiral for Castile, a country that later founded modern Spain. He made four voyages to the Americas, with his first in 1492, which resulted in what is considered by European Americans as the Discovery of America1 or Discovery of the Americas.2

    The discovery of the Americas has variously been attributed to others, depending on context and definition. For example, Asians migrated across the Bering Strait to North America between 12,000 and 42,000 years ago and the Vikings (c. 1000) established a settlement at L’Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland. While Columbus was not the first European to voyage to the New World and did not actually reach the mainland until his third voyage in 1498 (when he reached South America, and the fourth voyage, when he reached Central America), his discoveries led to the major European sea powers sending expeditions to the New World to build trade networks and colonies and to convert the native people to Christianity.
