    Important!
    You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.
    Do your part to combat Global Warming!

    Aye, ye scurvy dog, the lack of comeley wenches has caused us to shiver our own timbers and thus greatly reduced our rate of procreation. Strokin' ye olde mainsail solo on the high seas ain't becoming to a pirate worth his salt(y dog)..............................








    yaaaaarrrrrr!

    lol my cool Myth teacher has been talking about this day since last week! He's cool in that crazy way though.
    Anyone else think it's interesting that there are 17 pirates in the world now?

    So did someone just go out and travel the ocean and met the last 17 Pirates and take a head count or what?

    Lift up your voices me buccos. Sing out a good pirate song! Its getting colder already
    1. 1. Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
      Drink and the devil had done for the rest
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
      The mate was fixed by the bosun’s pike
      The bosun brained with a marlinspike
      And cookey’s throat was marked belike
      It had been gripped by fingers ten;
      And there they lay, all good dead men
      Like break o’day in a boozing ken
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    2. 2. Fifteen men of the whole ship’s list
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist!
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      The skipper lay with his nob in gore
      Where the scullion’s axe his cheek had shore
      And the scullion he was stabbed times four
      And there they lay, and the soggy skies
      Dripped down in up-staring eyes
      In murk sunset and foul sunrise
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    3. 3. Fifteen men of ‘em stiff and stark
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      Ten of the crew had the murder mark!
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
      Or a yawing hole in a battered head
      And the scuppers’ glut with a rotting red
      And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes
      Looking up at paradise
      All souls bound just contrawise
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    4. 4. Fifteen men of ‘em good and true
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      Ev’ry man jack could ha’ sailed with Old Pew,
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
      There was chest on chest of Spanish gold
      With a ton of plate in the middle hold
      And the cabins riot of stuff untold,
      And they lay there that took the plum
      With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb
      While we shared all by the rule of thumb,
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    5. 5. More was seen through a sternlight screen
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
      Chartings undoubt where a woman had been
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
      ‘Twas a flimsy shift on a bunker cot
      With a dirk slit sheer through the bosom spot
      And the lace stiff dry in a purplish blot
      Oh was she wench or some shudderin’ maid
      That dared the knife and took the blade
      By God! she had stuff for a plucky jade
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    6. 6. Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
      Drink and the devil had done for the rest
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
      We wrapped ‘em all in a mains’l tight
      With twice ten turns of a hawser’s bight
      And we heaved ‘em over and out of sight,
      With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well
      And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell
      Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell,
      Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
