yarr back in my day we used to send the youngest cabin boy up to the crows nest to tell us where the land was. We lost a few in heavy seas specially if a gust of wind blew them off when they were climbing up the rigging.
Nowadays the aspiring Pirate has Computerised Navigation Systems linked to a Space Satelite, no need for a crows nest now.
aaargh things are not what they used to be.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
