Declaring yourself the winner
in the middle
of a petty, nonsensical argument
by stating, "I win". By doing this, you are officially the winner
of the argument
in question. This rule is named after Christopher Columbus, who declared that he discovered
a country he did not in fact discover, but still receives
the credit for doing so.
Cole: What are you talking about? Just because I'm black doesn't mean
Stephen: Yes it does. I win.
Cole: What?! You can't do that!
Stephen: Yes I can. Columbus rule. Suck it.
