    I did NOT learn this in history class. I had to go out and learn it on my own. You know what else I didn't learn in history class? The fact that Muslim raiders along the land trade routes to Asia were the REAL reason that Christopher Columbus undertook to find a sea route there. History class made it sound like he came up with the idea on a lark, or because he thought it would be faster, not because Muslims had essentially closed down the land routes with their caravan raids.

    Yeah, but things are different today. We can just talk nice to them and they'll leave us alone. And i'm sure they're quite impressed with the NASA Muslim Outreach program President Obama started.
