Magellan pt. 3

The mutiny depicted in this story is hardly the only one that Magellan ever faced. If I learned anything researching this story, it was that Magellan was basically a dick. Every group of people he ever came into contact with tried to kill him. I mean everyone: his own countrymen, his adopted countrymen, just about every crew he ever sailed with, and certainly most of the natives he encoutered in his travels.

The first time a mob screams for you blood, you can say "It's them." The second time a mob screams for you blood, you can probably still say "It's them." When you're up to your fifth or sixth bloodthirsty mob, buddy, it's you.

You're probably right, but do They care?.. Nope. And it's still "Their fault". And if they don't choose mein election; they choose wrong.
