Columbus day? Bah humbug!

Columbus day I firmly believe to be the stupidest holiday in existance.definately not worth having no mail delivered either. The guy sailed around the boat, failed to find a shorter route to the far east like he planned. He didn’t even discover America for gods sake. The what discovered by a Chinese Muslim adimiral named  Cheng Ho.

Although in all fairness most children are taught that Columbus discovered America, and that Custer was a brave hero(As opposed to the insane bad guy that he really was). So, let’s for a moment pretend that what schools teach are children is correct, even though we all as adults know that half the crap our schools teach us is not accurate.

Ok! So, Columbus “Discovered” America. How can you discover something when people are already living there? You can’t discover that any more than I can say “Yes, I discovered Pizza Hut when I went there the first time in my life”. I obviously cant claim that, because people are eating there and working there…it’s been discovered clearly. Now, using that logic on America. How can Cheng Ho, Amerigo or Columbus claim to have discovered it? There were people living there and eating there! THEY discovered it AGES ago when their tribes were settled there…you know, before the land masses broke up.

So, taking that all into consideration, why am I not getting mail? Why is Columbus so damn special that he can keep me from getting my netflix movies on a monday? Why? Is it because he got lost? He’s a guy! Guys get lost all the time, i doubt he was the first guy who got lost. Maybe because he got lost on a boat?

Don’t get me wrong, im sure Columbus did something to warrant a holiday in some peoples eyes, but i promise you, no matter WHAT he did, I do not believe it warrants a holiday. Hell, I even disagree with having thanksgiving as a holiday and Labor day, so whatever.
