    A man is born in Spain and dies in Spain.
    Yet he spent his whole life within France.

    How so?

    In the Pacific, since the canal goes generally from NW to SE. Although if you navigated due east it would be quite bumpy.

    The tallest mountain on Earth was, and still is a mountain on the bottom of the Pacific ocean but I can't remember the name of it.
    The climbing of mt Everest is irrelevant anyway

    Chimborazo in Ecuador, when measured from the center of the Earth. At 20,548
    feet it isn't the highest mountain when measured above sea level, but its location
    on the equatorial bulge makes its summit the farthest point on the Earth's surface
    from the Earth's center.
