Can Pedestrians Find Places Columbus Couldn't?

  • Published on Oct 15, 2019
  • Today is both Indigenous Peoples and Columbus Day. Many of Jimmy's fellow Italian-Americans get very defensive about Christopher Columbus even though he never even got to North America. He died thinking he went to India and found a trade route to China but he did neither of those things. He had one job and he screwed it up. So today, as a nod to Columbus, we went out onto Hollywood Blvd to find out if people on the street could find the places Columbus couldn't.

    Columbus is a nice scapegoat for anybody that wants to deflect blame from all the people that came to the Americas after him

    Oh well... if you ask Europeans to find Missouri or Utah they would struggle too. Most of them at least.
    Not knowing where you are on a World Map is worrying though.

    It is a bit sneaky of them to use a map that has the Americas on the right when Americans are used to maps that show the Americas on the left... but still, this is ridiculous!

    I feel bad for Americans. These kind of examples bring you a bad name. Either this was a performance or both Texas guy and Indonesian guy are the products of incest. Stop sleeping with your siblings, it’s wrong!

    Wow, look at this Colombus guy, didn't even know he wasn't in India. What a dumbass, unlike me with my superior hindsight. Like come on guy, you thought it was India, despite the fact you wrote that you had realized it was a vast new continent, but never mind that. Who cares if he took slaves and gold for the Spainish Monarchs because Colombus did a funny haha.
