DYK-This is for Columbus Day... Christopher Columbus' First Voyage was the only semi-successful voyage that he had despite having the Santa Maria being destroyed and the first settlement in modern day Dominican Republic being demolished by the Natives.

Also...Zheng He supposedly discovered modern-day California and his voyages were abrupted by the Chinese Monarchy...if it didn't... China may have had ports on the West Coast of America!

Cristopher Columbus never set foot in in the continental USA (He did set foot in Puerto Rico and The Virgin Islands) this is why I call it "Leif Erikson Day" and He did set foot in Miane and perhaps New Hampshire.

The explorer Christopher Columbus made four trips across the Atlantic Ocean from Spain: in 1492, 1493, 1498 and 1502. He was determined to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia, but he never did. Instead, he accidentally stumbled upon the Americas.
Columbus was no friend to the native people. He definitely saw profit in enslaving and selling native peoples kidnapped from Caribbean shores. Once he made allies among what he called “good Indians,” Columbus advocated fighting and enslaving native groups he presumed to be cannibals. By 1500, he and his brothers had sent nearly 1,500 enslaved islanders to European markets to be sold. Even “friendly” indigenous peoples were forced to mine gold en masse, speeding death from malnourishment, torture,overwork and disease.

Yes, I think I knew that Christopher Colombus never sat foot in what now is continental USA.

But did you know that Leif Eirikson had a sister, Freydis Eiriksdottir, who followed him on his expedition to North America? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freyd%...Dksd%C3%B3ttir

Cool DYK

One of the funniest stories ever... Back in 1998, People Magazine allowed write-in candidates for their annual World's Most Beautiful People award.

A fan website popped up nominating Howard Stern Wack-Packer Hank, the Angry Drunken Dwarf for the award. His claim to fame was being a midget alcoholic who appeared on The Howard Stern Show in a drunken stupor cursing at everybody, vomiting on himself and falling down stairs.

Hank received more votes than mainstream celebs. like Leonardo DiCaprio, who was very big w/ Titanic at the time. Hank had received 208,000 votes while Leo received 14,400 votes.




Reps. for People were not pleased about this and said in various interviews that they would "never" put Hank, the Angry Drunken Dwarf on the magazine cover. However, they did say they would give him his own online homepage.

They "blamed" this on the fanatical Howard Stern fanbase as an elaborate prank. The write-in candidate option was shortly discontinued after.

As a luxury passenger vessel, the ticket price on the Titanic was $4,350 for first class, $1,750 for second class, and $30.00 for third class.

DYK-Even the Taino Tribes butted heads with the Spaniards...the Tanio destroyed a settlement made by the Spaniards after Columbus went back to Spain.

Also...90% of the Caribbean Tribesmen were either destroyed or absorbed by the Spanish!

BUT...

The first Italian to reach the mainland America was John Cabot who reached modern day New England on June 24th, 1497.

"The Groom of the Stool "was a male servant in the household of an English monarch who, among other duties, “presided over the office of royal excretion,” that is, he had the task of cleaning the monarch’s anus after defecation. In the early years of Henry VIII’s reign, the title was awarded to minions of the King, court companions who spent time with him in the Privy chamber. These were the sons of noblemen or important members of the gentry. In time they came to act as virtual personal secretaries to the King, carrying out a variety of administrative tasks within his private rooms. The position was an especially prized one, as it allowed one unobstructed access to the King’s attention. Despite being the official bum-wiper of the king, the Groom of the Stool had a very high social standing.

The human excrement was then dumped into the moat. Ah..... the good old days!


Anybody want to apply for the job?

Did you know that ExLax used to be chocolate? If you're over 50 you probably know this. I remember one time when I was about 3 years old I found the ExLax in a cupboard and ate it. It looked just like a chocolate bar! Anyway, I was on the potty chair all day. (We had no bathroom yet) Well, for heaven's sakes what kid could resist?! LOL Yummy!
