So since it was Columbus day yesterday, there are a lot of history articles floating around about Christopher Columbus.  This one I found was explaining how the legend of Columbus “proving” the earth was round and not flat is just not true.  Historians say that there was no way that around that time, people thought the earth was flat.  It had been known for years that the earth was round.  I just thought it was funny that even that far back in history, people still made up false legends that still come up in today’s current situations.
