DID YOU KNOW THAT America was named after Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci, who was the first to discover that the Americas were actually two seperate continents and was first used in 1507



BUT DID YOU ALSO KNOW that even Amerigo didn't like the name America and if he had gotten his way with the mapmakers, it would have been called VespucciLand?

DID YOU KNOW that there really was a "Dread Pirate Roberts" (just like in 'The Princess Bride') who operated in the Caribbean in the early 18th century. He is reckoned by many to have been the most successful pirate of all time.
