Tut tut, getting your Latin numbers mixed up with your Greek. It's not "pentillion" and "hexillion", but "quintillion" and "sextillion".

Now, write out 20 times "My ass is not as smart as I previously supposed".

Fact #45: The first man to circumnavigate the globe was Juan Sebastián Elcano (not Magellan, but his second-in-command). Magellan was killed in the Philippines halfway round and most of his crew stayed there to exact revenge, the majority of people who left from the Philippines were naval sailors stationed there. His ship was the first to circumnavigate the world also.

Nope...Noah built his arc and sailed around Egypt, assyria, messopotamia and thrace....so ner...however we shall discount anything religious as none of it is definitive.

Not sure about going around the globe but what about dinosaurs , also circumnavigation depends on the type of transportation used
