Now that I'm thinking about it...isn't it UTTERLY BIZARRE that an ENTIRE CONTINENT of people were called by the wrong name because of bad navigation, and the name has stuck for HUNDREDS OF YEARS??? Imagine if we were to discover life on Mars, but it turns out the astronauts flew the wrong direction, and so they call the people of Mars "Venusians". And then the people of Mars start calling THEMSELVES Venusians!!! What the #$&*!!??
