Our book giveaway jury has convened and rendered a verdict. The winner of our Become Somebody's Sidekick contest is Grant, who dreams of working beside the Most Interesting Man in the World from the Dos Equis commercials:
"He rides jet skis, is surrounded by beautiful women, has sword fights, frees bears from bear traps, drinks beer on occasion, and lives vicariously through himself. Seriously, who wouldn't want to live vicariously through themselves? On top of all that, he's got a wicked awesome beard."
Grant, I'll be in touch about your prize. Now on to today's challenge, which comes from intern Casey Johnston:
"Recast any historical moment you think would have been cooler, better, more exciting, etc. if it had happened differently."
Winner gets a copy of Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James Loewen. Good luck!
