          It's been taught to the masses that Columbus was the man that "discovered" the Americas. But the truth is that the Americas were already populated. What other famous myths can you think of that aren't true but are still considered fact?

@mythandlegend Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Not true ... it's just a saying/idiom.  It just means that if something bad has happened once, it can’t happen again. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with actual lightning strikes.but some don't know how figurative language can fool you.
            
            According to an article I found on the web, lightning is a huge electrostatic discharge searching for a way down, and it isn’t particularly interested in whether or not it has been hit before. Taller objects, such as trees and skyscrapers, are usually choice targets because there is a shorter distance between that and the origin of the lightning. The tallest tree in a forest can get struck several times until the storm passes. Also, NASA released a study in 2003 involving 386 cloud-to-ground strikes and found that over a third of the strikes branched and hit multiple locations at once. Not only does lightning strike twice, but it can also strike two places at the same time!

@mythandlegend What about the fact that George Washington really did not cut down that tree?

          According to several online, our contemporary St. Valentine’s Day may actually be linked to a violent Roman festival called Lupercalia.
          
          Every year, from February 13th to 15th, the streets of Rome erupted in a riotous, frenzied festival. The men of the city would begin by sacrificing goats and dogs, as part of a ritual designed to purify society of evil spirits. It was thought that this purification would boost fertility among the women of the city.
          
          Who knew that this loving celebration could have started with scaring away evil spirits?
          
          That being said, love is in the air, or is it? Come and join in the Valentine’s day fun with the ambassadors at Myth and Legend.

@mythandlegend I like Sekhmet. She, like, represents what women are capable of in two very different yet connected aspects

@mythandlegend I like to be lady Godiva because she was really brave and kind. She's very good.

@mythandlegend  Robin Hood! I'd be able to shoot with a bow and arrow and I'd be helping others.

          As the Ambassadors from the Myth and Legend profile are busy putting together a fun writing challenge for you, they wanted to know one thing.
          
          Would you rather be Zeus, Hades, Hera, or Poseidon?

gods_heros_monsters

@mythandlegend Of course Hades! He's better than his brothers brecause when everyone left him alone in the underworld, he was still strong and he is full of justice! That's why I think he's the best.

@plottingalong Agreed. All the gods have issues, just like any living being, but the hate on Hera is rather staggering. Poor goddess.

          Have you read The Daughter of Magic by @ForrestRaven from The Colosseum: Roman Mythology reading list? If not, here’s a look at what you’ve been missing out on. 
          
          Juno Vixen, a stubborn witch of merely sixteen, has lived with her sister for one year alone after her parents had tragically died in a house fire. Juno discovers a group sworn to protect her, called the Hecaties. After discovering her sister has been captured, the Hecaties start to train her in her powers.

          There are many interesting legends from around the world and through the ages that refer to mythical beings that are similar to horses. The Scottish Kelpies are some of the more intriguing of these creatures and tales about these water horses have been told far and wide around that country. But before those creatures existed, there was a sea horse in Greek myth that was known as a hippocampus.  
          
          If you could have any mythological creature to have as a "horse," what would it be?

Kelpies look cool, but their reputations aren't that nice. Hiccopami like Rainbow from Rick Riordan's books are much nicer.
