North American Pirates are apparently slackers. Found on this collection of neat maps.

Any statistical increase in the usage of the :idiot: emoticon since becoming Admin should not be considered significant, meaningful, or otherwise cause for worry.

Well, since pirates fight global warming, it would make sense to do it where it's warmest, right?

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

But do I mean your left or my left? :confused:

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

As a poet and a Beatles fan, I found this video to be amazing. It's a lesson on poetic structure, using the works of various poets, including and especially The Beatles, as examples. I never read their lyrics as poetry, so I was amazed at how structurally varied the lyrics were. I had only ever heard the stresses as the melodies presented them. I have a newfound appreciation for my favorite band, and my favorite hobby. :fsm_float:
