I love how Columbus just sailed the other direction and was like “ah yes, brown people. Must be India, clearly China is a myth made up by the big tea industry”
@Lord Cthulhu, that's, uh, not even remotely close to what happened.
@Captain Swordsman, it's pretty close. He sailed west to find India, found the west Indies in south America. Saw natives. Called them Indians. And the rest is English history
@Codeine, yes, but if you look at projection based maps from around Columbus' time, he wasn't the only one who didn't know where things actually were.

My favorite came from my Music Appreciation class. We had 5 pieces every week we had to be able to identify by listening to a short section of them. We had 2 Italian pieces, 2 German pieces, and an instrumental piece. The professor reminded us right before the quiz. Had a guy raise his hand and ask what language the instrumental was in.
He did catch on after a little bit, but he was very confused why everyone started laughing at first
Took a girl on a date once. Saw a movie about the cold war and espionage. After the movie she asked what I liked about it. I said I liked how it portrayed politics and negotiations. She had no idea what either of those things were. The bad part is after I explained what they were, she disagreed that any of those things occurred in the movie. Needless to say they were integral to the plot.
