Off Topic: The "What's my Pirate Name?" quiz rocks. Take it yourself.
Here's my result:
Also, September 19th was "International Talk Like a Pirate" day. Put that on your calendars, please. Arrrrr. At VintageSpec we love all things Pirate - my first two woodshop employees were called "Scurvy" and "Rickets". Now there's Eel Dottore (he's an Italian pirate!), Sir Scabs-a-Lot, Hanker and Turd. (No, Garret, I'm still not kidding.) Need pirate supplies? Check out 826 Valencia Pirate Supply. Waaaaay better than Captain Rick's Booty Cove (the Wal-Mart superstore chain of pirate supply shops). Plus, Captain Rick wears socks with his Birks. Shudder.
Wikipedia has a good entry on Pirates as well.
