With violence happening as it is, maybe we could consider The Purge. Not sure if you have seen those movies.
    I've seen the first one. Weird and violent.

    I had the day off!! Didn't get to party tho. I have been before to the parade and festivities and Italians really know how to have a good time. The Feast is my favorite Italian event...4 days of non stop celebration.

    Now, can't really say that Columbus was a "good guy", but if it wasn't him, it would have just been the next ship captained by someone with an equally checkered past.

    The type of character that would risk his life to captain a 6 month journey is not going to be the kind of guy you'd want sitting next to you in your cubicle at work.

    ... Then let's change the name to "Just a random day to stay home, get hammered and ride the hobbyhorse."

    Columbus 'discovered' lands that had been discovered very many times, by various peoples. Perhaps some brilliant American will discover the bicycle one of these days, and we can celebrate him too.
