What they didn't *want* you to know about Christopher Columbus:
#IndigenousPeoplesDay2018

1) Columbus did not set people straight about the shape of the world. Navigators in his time all believed that the world was round.
2) Columbus was wrong about geography, not a lone rebel who was right. He thought that a trip to Japan was only 3,000 miles. In reality, it would be 12,000 miles even if a route existed.
3) Columbus was not a hero who is maligned only in modern times. His cruelty during 7 years ruling Hispaniola, including torture, mutilation, and slavery, led to the Spanish imprisoning him.

Day 3 of #ScaryMovieMonth If you were a fan of It Follows, then check out Lace Crater. Don't watch the trailer, it gives the whole movie away. There's light visual horror, but that isn't what will make you cringe—it's the intimacy of watching it all go down. It's so absurd.
Day 4 of #ScaryMovieMonth is a twofer. The Aussie movie Wolf Creek came out in 2005 (rent on Amazon for 3.99) & it is BRUTAL. It could very well make you puke from fright & then those weird scary bastards went & made a whole terrifying series out of it (also called Wolf Creek).
Day 5 of #ScaryMovieMonth my recommendation is Unsane with Claire Foy. Being gaslighted into thinking you're crazy, being in a place where women are only believed when the truth is profitable & a man obsesses over controlling you—it is on the nose horror for today.
