    My favorite part about this thread is seeing people literally butt hurt that someone is celebrated for discovering a new land - new to those that sailed under very dangerous conditions to find North America.

    Some of y’all are pretty petty and lack a life with a social aspect outside of web forums.

    The Columbian exchange was massively important, sure. No arguing there. It was going to happen regardless of who “started” it, though.

    As a person, Columbus was a brutal, avaricious monster. There can be no doubt of this if we simply take the diaries of his own soldiers at face value. Take a look at his governance of Hispaniola, for instance; Columbus required every Taino to pay a monthly price in gold— if they failed once, their ears were notched; if they failed twice, their noses were cut off; if they failed three times they were killed. The entire population of the island was wiped out within decades.

    Do you know what age the Spaniards preferred the native girls to be when they took them as sex slaves? Nine or ten. Once again, we know this from their own words.

    This isn’t revisionist history; it’s ACTUAL history as opposed to that mythological crap we learn as kids. Sorry about the truth.

    Scandinavian “cuisine.”

    Shut up, dude. lol. My grandma still makes lefse and it's really good. :( But yeah, not much of a fan of things like pickled herring or lutefisk tbh. Fårikål is a nice dish though.

    One of my wife’s friends is from Sweden. She eats fish from a toothpaste tube. Just saying.

    People are being mean and making fun of Nordic-American history and heritage in this thread.

    Throvald was almost my Birth name, but my mother wasn't having it. My Grandma is pure Norwegian (First generation American) and My Dad is half and Thorvald was his Grandfathers name. I would have been called Thor for short. Instead I have a very common biblical name which I don't mind, but Thorvald would have been sweet :D

    Hes talking out of his ass. The oldest known human evidence is 24k years old, tops, located in Alaska. Brazil (hilariously) comes in second at 22k year old evidence.

    It doesn't get better than that. And yeah, aforementioned grandma was born over there and is super proud of that shit. I've bought her at least three or four "Uff Da" coffee mugs. The last couple years have been rough as the siblings, first-gen American friends and acquantances have all started rapidly checking out.

    Why is that “hilarious”? I’d say it shows that there are major inconsistencies with the theory that the Americas were settled in waves from Siberia beginning 15,000 years ago...

    The 70,000 number was wrong, though. I was going from memory and got mixed up. That is the “out of Africa” number.

    My post has been edited to “24,000 years ago.”

    This, of course, makes a major difference to my main points because...

    Nothing wrong with Leif Erikson himself or celebrating him as an explorer, but this day was long co-opted by neo Nazis. They're ruining appreciation of Scandinavian history when most of them aren't even Nordic.

    Shout out to all the pussies on the fence with Rune tats cuz you're too scared to go all the way and get swastikas.

    I grew up in the eighties and I'd never heard of this kid until a few years ago. Was he on a sitcom or something?

    lol I thought the same thing for a second .. but kinda knew 'erickson' wasn't him .. I think that guy was a teen hearthrob singer in the 70s .. by the looks of that picture, he was probably one of the many victims of the industry who were turned out
