It was 527 years ago today, when Christopher Columbus and crew arrived in the New World after 6 weeks of sailing the ocean blue.
It's still early. Greet your friends with this, greet any left-kook you meet. Whatever BS he has to say back, it doesn't compare to this amazing voyage of discovery by the Italian navigator. We can date civilization on the American continents from October 12th, 1492 onward ... till ... pretty recently.
Peak Stupidity celebrated this holiday belatedly last year and in '17, and amazingly, before I just looked at last year's post, I picked an image for this one (2nd picture there). They are amazingly similar! Same minds think alike, or something.
Anyway, it's not too late to take the day off on Monday. If you are a Fed - and I don't expect many readers from that "sector" after things published on Peak Stupidity, but please remember folks, we are an Equal Opportunity Offender, complying with all statutes, rulings, and penumbrae required by the UN and PS legal dept.- if you haven't been offended yet, you haven't been reading enough - where was I, yeah, this holiday IS a Federal Holiday and you should not go to "work". If you are in a State or local government, hell, even a First Responder, they have sick days for a reason. Just let the PC boss and colleagues know, "I'm gonna take a sick day, I'm so sick of you people!"
Don't let the ctrl-left have the megaphone.
PS: The six week voyage was from the last islands off the Euro/African continent until first landfall.
