A Puzzler

February 3 was Ferdinand Magellan’s birthday, back in 1480. He is remembered for sailing around the world, the first ship to manage it. He himself did not complete the voyage (1519-1522), having been killed in the Philippines. The ship was then captained by Juan Sebastian Encano. But Magellan did the legwork, so he gets the credit.

We Rhinos are not clear on how Sr. Magellan managed it, with a flat earth. But stranger things have happened. Frequently. Daily, and often hourly.
