In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Had he been in Italy at the time, he might have seen a mysterious blue box, a man wearing an unlikely large scarf, a long dead cult more active then ever, and a red ball of death destroying everything in its path. Of course, had he been in Italy instead of searching for a faster route to Asia, life as we know it would be almost completely different anyway, and the humans who would be here instead of us probably wouldn't be speculating about it.
