Deep Thought of the Day

"If you were a pirate, you know what would be the one thing that would really make you mad? Treasure chests with no handles. How the hell are you supposed to carry it?!"

I think that no handles on the treasure chest would be pretty bad; but not as bad as a pirate with an interear infection. Not only would they be constantly falling down on board, but whenever a fellow pirate asked them whats wrong they would have to respond, "Aaar, I gots a anter arrearr infarction!" I think that this would be most difficult to explain...but only if you were a pirate.

Yes, falling down on board would be bad... very un-pirate-like. However, if he was speaking to another pirate about his "anter arrearr infarction," then I'd imagine that the other pirate, who'd be well versed in pirate-speak, would know exactly what he's talking about and would respond with an "Aarr, get ye to a darcktorr, ye bilge rat, before yer infarction gets ye and we hav ta send ya ta davy jones lockerr." or something of the like.

touche...that is a good point. However, I have to ask, do you think that they had doctors just for pirates? If not our unbalanced seafarer may end up getting a colonostopy...it some how seems logical to me. Thanks for humoring me.

You know what would suck about being a pirate? GETTING SCURVY and subsequently DYING FROM SCURVY.

Ahh.. but they can get away with wearing wickedly awesome eye-patches!

Today's modern pirate obviously knows that to prevent the scurvy all you need to do is suck on a lemon or two ever now and again...whatta think they keep behind them eye patches? Ain't no eyes back there tell ya what.
