Oh no’s Columbus did not discover the United States of America!! Some other white(r) people did!!

Canada <> United States of America, but then neither are the Bahamas and other Caribbean Islands. But cool story otherwise.

Part of the joke, sir.

I’m just looking out for our neighbors to the north. I want them to know that we fully recognize them as a sovereign nation and not as the 51st state (even if they have funny looking money)

Look, if the lands didn’t stay discovered, then it doesn’t matter.

Going over, make a short-lived settlement, and then nobody figuring you were there for about 1,000 years… that doesn’t count for much of anything, other than a note that sure, Vikings went from Greenland to Newfoundland at one point. (oh, and the Vikings were in Greenland for a short time as well, but the end of the Medieval Warm Period shut that one down.)

This is an appropriately good time to put this here:

The NYT has a story today, too. Really cool stuff.
