Columbus Day is Fake News

Growing up as an Italian kid on Long Island, New York we always loved Columbus Day. It was a day where we celebrated our people and more importantly enjoyed a three day weekend. As I grew up and became a fan of history I started┬áto learn how Columbus was a murderous dumbass and everything around his story is a myth. Also I feel like most people don’t get off this day anymore, so I’m extra salty. Anyways here are a few quick facts about Columbus and Columbus Day:

“Columbus discovered America” – Besides the fact you can’t discover a place people already are this kid only made it to the Caribbean. He hit up Cuba, Jamaica, DR and some other islands. This claim is obvious cap on multiple fronts.

“Columbus proved the World was round” – People didn’t think the world was flat. I mean they do today but not back then. Columbus actually thought the world was shaped like a pear.

Columbus wasn’t even trying to find America – He was trying to find a shortcut to India and happened to stumble across unknown land. Should we really be celebrating people who mess up their job and get lucky?

Not only was he dumb but he was an asshole – Columbus pulled up on the Dominican Republic and the Taino people who were super nice to him on his first trip. He went back to Europe came back with reinforcements, then enslaved them. He tried to force them to give him their gold but that’s not naturally occurring on the island so they didn’t have any. Then he brutally started murdering them. The diseases the Europeans carried also infected and killed a bunch of native peoples.

Why we actually celebrate Columbus Day:
In 1828, some author wrote a biography about him and completely fabricated these things I pointed out. At the same time Italians were moving to the United States in huge numbers. At this time they were treated like shit and marginalized.┬áItalians clung onto this myth and created a hero out of him as some sort of defense mechanism or rallying point. Unfortunately he’s a POS and most of his legacy is complete FAKE NEWS.

  15. The Echo service does some things locally, like sending commands to home automation devices, but most of itÔÇÖs behavior, like skills/apps, requires a server on the Internet. IÔÇÖve never written a flash briefing skill, but my understanding is that the Amazon servers retrieve the content from your server, and then send it to the Echo. For this to work, your server needs to be reachable over the Internet.You can certainly use a RasPi as a server to do this. But you will still have to set up an https server with a proper certificate and make it publicly reachable.

  16. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll
    try to get the hang of it! games ps4 allenferguson games ps4
