We all have heard the official story about how Christopher Columbus discovered America merely by mistake. But giving it some thought, I wonder if there is another side to the story.
Considering the fact that celestial navigation was an ancient science known and used to navigate on the sea, what would be the chances of the "Admiral of the Ocean Sea" chosen by the Spanish Crown for the treasure hunting voyage, getting lost and sailing in the wrong direction?

In this article, Mike Zappy transcribes the contents of a talk on cannabis and how it's going to change 'life as we know it' that he had intended to deliver at a Tedx event in Boca Raton.
The text was approved by the organizers and Zappy was scheduled into the event but a few days later he received an email from the same organizers cancelling his talk. They said that 'Boca Raton was not ready for a talk about cannabis'.
