From our friends at neat-o-rama, 7 Myths and Truths about Pirates:

We’ve all got an idea of what it was like to be a pirate in the 1700s – but a lot of it is pure Hollywood hooey. Here’s a few of our most common misconceptions about pirates … and the truth about them.

    I agree with Capt’n Spaghz, we should keep the plank. Besides, everybody knows (well, Pastafarians know) that pirates were not the maurading bunch of murderers and rapists they are reported to be (according to the site, rape was a death-penalty offense). No doubt they didn’t use the plank because they had to use wood for other things, like repairing holes after greedy navies chased them down for their treasure. I’m sure if they had a plank, they simply would’ve used to jump off and go for a swim.

    @rmw- “No doubt they didn’t use the plank because they had to use wood for other things, like repairing holes after greedy navies chased them down for their treasure.”

    Right-
    .
    Platinum, Gold, silver etc. is effectively a simple reactivity series. Yeah, i know bronze is an alloy. And yeah, i know that nobody uses platinum. Shut up.
    So we should be getting Gold, Silver, Mercury, Copper, Bismuth, Antimony etc.
    SCREW THAT!
    .
    Just stick to Gold, silver and bronze please, or we gonna end up with the coments section just consisting of people listing various elements of the periodic table; and then we gonna get people making stuff up, like piratinium or noodlite.
