the ones from the 1800's-150's did. Hell even the old heads
but nowadays pulling out your gun is the 1st resort as opposed to the last resort. People try to jump to the top too quickly without earning a spot

this post is dumb,

(westren) pirates where civilised people, they had to be , if they really where violent thugs every last man would fight them to the death

they where made into swashbuckling killers by movies

No they werent. Not even close. While they had those democracies on their ships, it hardly makes them civilized. They werent attacking each other on board, which i guess is what you might mean, but anywhere else theyd kill you without batting an eye.

He was hung. And placed in what is called a gibbet cage afterwards. They tarred his body to make sure it didnt rot and hung the cage over the edge of a pier so that the tide could wash over it 3 times. Ive been studying piracy since i was six.

Didn't Blackbeard turn out to have 13 bullets or something in him once they finally put him down?

Close. 22 wounds, including 4 gunshot wounds. The others were cuts and stabs and such.

Still pretty damn impressive. Always found Blackbeard very intriguing, partially for that reason.

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

Pirates were Ok with gay marriage(had some sort of union) and had insurance.

Oh, well that makes all the murder, stealing, and rape okay. Because you know, at least they supported gay marriage.

You do know that most of the time Pirates didn't really care about anything too valuable on a ship,they took the medical supplies more than anything else because you know..its hard as **** to get that stuff. Research is a good thing to do. Not all pirates were bad people. Some of them were just against what British navy was doing at the time.   
   
   
But hey,I guess nobody likes to do research on actually how they live or why they did what they did! Feed me your red thumbs!

But they weren't cruel and merciless violent bastards at all.......

The point of being a pirate and ransacking a town or a ship was to get the target to surrender, and surrender quick. Then getting a ransom or looting the loot.

If pirates ALWAYS went around killing EVERYONE, and giving all the ladies the D, then the people of those towns and those who caught wind of those stories would NEVER surrender their ships, considering what awaits them. Then you'd have to sink the ship or have an impossible task of killing everyone in the ship, both VERY dangerous to the crew and LESS profitable

Under that system people who actually DID do that kind of merciless killing were actually pretty unsuccessful pirates. I actually read up on some of those guys who used to target Spaniards and Frenchmen with a 100% mortality and cruelty rate. They didn't end up well.

Exactly, I mean hell Blackbeard barely killed anyone, he hated killing, that;s why he came up with the Blackbeard persona, to scare people away.
