Ferdinand Magellan General Discussion

Any one else here a fan of the legendary portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan?
He circumnavigated with one ship the entire planet. Really incredible accomplishment. He was killed by wild natives before they got back to Portugal, and when they got back there was only like eleven people alive of the two hundred and something crew and the entire ship was rotting down to the waterline. What an incredible inspiration of determination. I hope schools still teach about this great man instead of filling kids minds with the useless garbage they see on E! Network and social media.
