    Now that’s a Pastafarian project if I ever heard one! Anyone know who’s in charge? Are they a disciple of the FSM? Could we get involved in any way (or at least the Pastafarians who live on the east coast)?

    Blackbeard settled in Bath and received a governor’s pardon. Some experts believe he grew bored with land life and returned to piracy.

    He was killed by volunteers from the Royal Navy in November 1718 – five months after the ship thought to be Queen Anne’s Revenge sank.
    This was followed by a unusual rise in seasonal tempatures and increased hurricane activity on the Carolina coast

    cape – could that be still more evidence that decrease in pirates is an increase in global temps?

    The Queen Anne’s Revenge shall rise again!

    I think that the site should be excivated and the nearest beach declared a pastafarian holly place, where beer and pirateness run free.

  6. Booty says:

    Wow – so cool! Keep us informed Bobby!

  7. vplgringo says:

    Maybe this event will enspire more people to become pirates and stave off our impending doom.

    Welcome Bosun, may the the increase in the number of Pastafarians like yourself solve the great heat and drought in much of Africa.
