    oK Shaun! we will notify the congress of the united States to change the history as to who discovered America, because some kid in Canada is all pissed off that you did not give the credit mr. Ericksson.

    Shaun the info you show is not new, and American history says That Lief Ericksson might have landed in North America 500 yrs before columbus, US Govt . knows this, but he's landings had nothing to with America, he came he landed he took a nap, he ate he took a crap wiped his ass with tree leaves and then went on his way.

    So for this we are going to give credit for discovering America

    Calm down.

    I think if he is to be credited for discovering North America, all he needs to do is discover it. So what if he didn't do as much with it as Columbus?

    I'm not frustrated, because as I have posted, there already is a day (as recognized by the government of the United States of America) commemorating Leif for being the first European to discover North America.

    I would prefer you kept your cussing to a minimum. It is not very becoming of you.

    Thanks.

    The Italians have done remarkable things, one just has to look at the Roman Empire as example; however, I just had a differing opinion regarding the discovery of North America.

    I'm happy this has resolved peacefully.
