Career advice for the little blaggards

Postby DaveL on Sun Jan 18, 2009 3:10 am

YArrrrrr...

Mateys,

The world of piracy is a career choice not for the faint hearted. It be a lifestyle, rather than a career choice.

Bein a pirate takes a lot of work, heck just think of all expenditure ye have to endure to get started:

There's all that study and weapons training to do.
Purchasin' the correct prosthetic limb is a nightmare
Findin the right parrot takes lots of time
Purchasin the right galleon is a right pain in the butt.

Given the vast experience on this board, Oi wuz wunderin if ye had any career advice for our aspiring young 'seaborne murderers and pillagers'.

Argh, this be a good oidea! We kin impart our Wisdim an' Hexperiyence an' sech.

Well, oi've got a few nuggets o' Advice fer the wee yungstarrs:

1. Nivvir eat beans afore a battle, for when ye be swingin' onna the enemies' deck wit' yer cutlass in yer teef meens ye could shoot roight ova tharr bloody ship!
(The lads onna uvver boat warr reel noice-loike aboot that. They fished me oota the watarr an' gave me a blankit an' sum hot chockit. Happarently, the preveeyoos summer, they ate a tin o' hexpired beans each an' didnae need cannons!)

2. Ye dun' hold the sharp end ove the cutlass, ye hold the safe end!

3. Be nice to yer Ol' Mam, jus' dun sell 'em to the Aztecs, or ye'll turn out Welsh!
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

YArrrr...Oi've found taken a few beans on board can come in handy, if we ye be runnin out of ammunition.
There be nuthin like a bit of gas weaponry when ye be backed into a corner matey.

Yaaaar...there a few human sacrifices worth pursuin on that front!

Here's one...

When yer selectin a parrot, make sure ye get one with a low 'seed:poop' ratio. Cleanin yer cabin can be a right chore at the best of times. So gettin a low poopin polly be a sound investment.

'ere should be special courses teaching us beginners how to tell a schiavona frem a cutlass. 'ere ain't even a word fer cutlass in me native language. In culture 'tis coded that a poirate uses a rapier.
Any oideas on 'ow to persuade ye ol' folks frem giving ye a sabre?
