DigitalCoffee: If it's not a holiday that encourages getting drunk and/or blowing shiat up then it doesn't belong on the calendar.
TheOther: Mugato: Does anyone past the 4th grade even give a shiat about Columbus Day, besides having to figure out if the mail and garbage comes?Well, Mr. 1%, you get your garbage delivered??
DigitalCoffee: If it's not a holiday that encourages getting drunk and/or blowing shiat up then it doesn't belong on the calendar. As it stands, there is so much cruft listed on a typical calendar because every group wants it's own special day/week/month that it looks like a roster for Jerry's Kids. Feel bad for black people month, buy pink shiat month, don't burn the books week, blow a months pay on useless crap celebration, the annual gorge yourself with family members you despise day... get rid of it all./grievance aired//feats of strength next///don't make me hit you with the pole
JerseyTim: I hope of they recognize Dora, they also include Boots.

rocky_howard: Are the people who say Columbus was a "mass murdering moron" idiots? Do you really believe that?1.- Columbus requested a crew. The Catholic Monarchs gave him a bunch of criminals who were imprisoned for murder, rape and armed robbery because they didn't believe Columbus was going to get anywhere and they didn't want to lose good men.2.- One of the first things Columbus did after discovering America? Getting himself jailed and relieved from command.So, any genocide against the natives was made by the Spaniards, NOT Columbus.
RickN99: GAT_00: As long as it takes Columbus off of that list, I'm fine with that. There is no reason we should celebrate a mass murdering moron.Never realized he was intentionally mass-murdering people. You have a citation to where he claimed to want to kill off the natives and decided to use disease to do it? Since, you know, it was murder and all.
One Bad Apple: SFSailor: Amelia Earhart? Yeah, cuz hiding in the attic counts as exploring. Sheesh.She wasn't hiding she was just too blind and deaf to know where she was
tenpoundsofcheese: Going to a sound stage in Arizona is hardly being an "explorer".
Foxxinnia: Sounds good. Christopher Columbus was a Goddamn moron. Every educated person back then knew how large the Earth was because that had been figured out two thousands years ago. They knew how far away Asia was and that sailing Westward to it was futile. Columbus however believed a different measurement that people knew was wrong. Then he arrives in the Caribbean and thinks they're in India because Columbus has no farking clue what India is actually like even though that's where he was trying to go the entire time. Then when other explorers are like "Yo dog, we're pretty sure these islands ain't India. India has like cities and shiat" Columbus continues to maintain that he had found India. Then add onto that that Columbus never reached the land that would become the United States, and that he wasn't the first European to reach America anyway there's zero reason to have a holiday to this guy.
basemetal: Columbus day isn't a highly celebrated day around my neck of the woods.
