#1255: Columbus


[[A figure in a hat is talking to two small children who are sitting cross-legged on the floor. A woman is off-panel.]]

Figure in hat: Everyone said the world was flat, but Columbus knew it was round.

Woman: «Sigh» No, no, no.

[[The woman walks into frame. The children turn to look.]]

Woman: So he took his ships and sailed west– –in a line tangent to the surface. The sea fell away, and he landed in Valinor.

Woman: A Silmaril on his brow, he wanders the heavens as the morning star, still believing he reached India.

Figure in hat: Stop making stuff up.

Woman: You first.
