Christopher Columbus - Douchebag 
Christopher Columbus was a cruel, despotic tyrant who ruled over his subjects with an iron fist, according to new documents which have emerged 500 years after his death.

Okay, so now it's official: Columbus was an asshole. He was such a dick that even the Spanish thought he was cruel - and their cruelty is legend. And he wasn't the "first" anyway, so why does he get a holiday? So how will we replace Columbus Day?

Let's see what other exciting events happened on October 12 that we can use for a national holiday:

1773 - America's first insane asylum opens for 'Persons of Insane and Disordered Minds' in Virginia
1775 - The United States Navy is formed.
1810 - First Oktoberfest
1859 - Self-described "Emperor of the United States" Joshua A. Norton issues a decree dissolving the U.S. Congress

I'm going with the last one.

Unwrapping history 
Paper made from mummy wrappings in Maine.

"I've been able to document Maine was a real hotbed," for paper-making with mummy wrappings, said Wolfe, who will be joined by her husband and technical adviser, Worcester Polytechnic Institute Professor David Rawson, in her presentation tonight in Gardiner. "Gardiner had four or five mills that made paper from mummy-wrappings. It's a fascinating bit of real Yankee lore. The big question is what happened to the bodies?"

Carved stone still mystifies scholars 
Finally, a picture. A bizarre, head-scratcher of a picture.

The American Naturalist suggested that the stone "commemorates a treaty between two tribes." Others have guessed the stone is Celtic or Inuit. A letter to the historical society in 1931 suggested it was a "thunderstone," which, the writer said, "always present the appearance of having been machined or hand-worked: frequently they come from deep in the earth, embedded in lumps of clay, or even surrounded by solid rock or coral."

Another curious detail is that there are holes bored in both ends of the stone, with different size bits. Each bore is straight, not tapered. Scratches in the lower bore suggest it was placed on a metal shaft and removed several times, according to an analysis done by state officials in 1994.

What is this thing?
