The Pirates! books are teh awesome! Glad you're enjoying them! :)


I don't understand why more people don't comment here. Lance, even when I disagree with you, you put things in a way I must at least consider. Those who DO comment here also have great viewpoints. It just seems a shame that so many good posts seem to go unread, based on the comment volume. Atrios gets more comments by posting "heh, indeed" like Instashithead.


Perhaps pirates love ham because it's so scarce? Pigs can't be raised or kept on shipboard (at least, they weren't mentioned in the editions of Moby Dick or Two Years Before the Mast that I read).

Must check library for Mr. Defoe's books (is that a consciously-chosen pseudonym, considering his subject matter? Is Mr. Defoe really named Selkirk? Can I learn this anywhere? Do I need more coffee?).
