lol very true, probably because pirates were free and want to spread the "idea" of true sovereignty

They were not that bad, after all they even had a primitive version of health insurance.
(They got money if they were injured or lost a body part)

Actually, regular sailors were even more brutal and murderous at the time. They were also practically slaves. The reason most sailors turned to piracy was in order to get some freedom and cash. Some traded, some looted, some demanded protection fees, but very few were the "rape everyone, take everything that isn't nail down, kill everyone and burn what's left" kind of pirate. Heck, some of those ships even had their own little democracy with an elected captain. Some were more civilized than the people back on land.

I'm guessing it's a similar tale to the popular view of vikings. Vikings weren't primarily raiders and killers; most were farmers and merchants and explorers. Pillaging is an effective way to supply your men, though, so a minority occupied themselves with that while the majority only did it when they had to - but it's the victims of the raids that wrote the history books, so it's fair to say that the impression of what both vikings and pirates/privateers were all about is a bit skew.

There's a Sean Lock joke like this, but instead of gangsters it's terrorists.

Inner city gangsters would **** their pants in the mere presence of a real pirate.

They'd have nightmares and PTSD for the rest of their life if they saw a fraction of what most pirates saw on a daily basis.

You know on the making things non-violent discussion, why haven't we been making fun of warm bodies, the zombie version of twlight?
User avatar #93 to #73 - schneidend (06/30/2013) [-]
Because, unlike Twilight, it's actually really well-written book. I didn't see the movie, but I've heard good things.
User avatar #98 to #93 - rhiaanor (06/30/2013) [-]
its about a zombie that...becomes... not a zombie anymore... just the concept itself is terrible.
User avatar #101 to #98 - schneidend (06/30/2013) [-]
The zombie epidemic in Warm Bodies is a metaphor for a lack of independent thought and the dangers of stagnation and promoting hostility and vitriol. I was skeptical at first, too, and had the exact same thought. The fact that the novel's cover has an endorsement by Stephanie Meyer did not help. But, never judge a book by its cover fits this ever so well. Seriously, read the novel. It's really good.

call me simple-minded or whatever, but of the contants you should have for myths, one of a zombie's is that it is violent and certainly not curable by.. what keeping it as a pet until it humanises? The premise of it just puts bad taste in my mouth.
User avatar #106 to #102 - schneidend (06/30/2013) [-]
The zombie "myth" is an entirely modern creation that barely resembles the Haitian folklore from which it is derived.

Bottom line, read the book instead of watching a one-minute movie trailer.
