    talk of pirates...

    Discussion started by vinyl junkie - Sep 12, 2002

    meatfaceski: whats up man
    vinyl junkie: just talkin about pirates...
    meatfaceski: real pirates
    vinyl junkie: yes and no...
    vinyl junkie: there's a lot of people that were thought to be pirates, but were really hired by a country to act as a pirate toward another, specific, country... they're buccaneers... they don't count in my book...
    meatfaceski: whats the difference between a buccaneer and a mercanary?
    vinyl junkie: nothin much... but real pirates had a fuck em all the same attitude... that's why i like them more than buccaneers...
    vinyl junkie: oh, and buccaneers refers specifically to going's on on the ocean...
    meatfaceski: whats a swashbuckler?
    vinyl junkie: a swashbuckle is a round sheild with a spike in the middle... a swashbucler is someone who uses one of those...
    meatfaceski: and a morning star?
    vinyl junkie: not sure... i should know that one...
    meatfaceski: i think its like that spiked metal ball on a chain connected to a pipe
    vinyl junkie: that's a mace... wait, maybe yer right... a mace is a solid ball i think, not spikey...
    meatfaceski: no no
    meatfaceski: a mace doesnt have the chain
    vinyl junkie: no?
    meatfaceski: its can be solid or spikey
    meatfaceski: connected to the pipe or whatever
    meatfaceski: http://www.medieval-weaponry.com/media/2608.jpg
    vinyl junkie: well fuck... pirates didn't use em so they don't matter...
    meatfaceski: http://www.medieval-weaponry.com/media/2605.jpg
    meatfaceski: thats a flail
    meatfaceski: not a morning star
    vinyl junkie: that's a flail?
    vinyl junkie: do you know the difference between a flailing and a whipping?
    meatfaceski: no clue
    vinyl junkie: a flailing is when the whip is repeatedly and quickly hit across the back in a side to side kinda way... a whipping is when you can count the lashes... all slow like...
    meatfaceski: whoa i guess a morning start has two or more of those spiked balls on chains
    vinyl junkie: ouch...
    meatfaceski: thats an iffy weapon
    vinyl junkie: but again, if yer a pirate, all you need is blades and projectiles... and occasionally a swashbuckle if yer pimp...
    meatfaceski: true

    well, 1st... the mace was NEVER a pirate weapon...

    AND

    No pirate EVER has been known to fly the Skull and Crossbones on a field of black... if you want I can open my historical tomes and drop some knowledge about what pirates flew what flags but that will have to be on the morrow... and someone could probably beat me to it using the internet I guess...

    I wonder what you think a 'pirate tattoo' looks like...

    Among the more common tattoos of pirates was the "open eyes" don't in all fashion, from crude one colors to multi-colored detailed work... this tat was 'eyes' tattooed on the eyelids, I think the idea was pretty much an attempt to prevent robbery and rape...

    first, yes, i know...

    AND

    BULLSHIT!!! while the skull and crossbones was more likely to be seen on a feild of red, it was occasionally flown on black as well... however, the skull and crossbones wasn't that common to begin with... a skull with crossed swords was a little more common... but the most common flags were: a skeleton with an hourglass in one hand and a dagger stabbing a bleeding heart in the other this was on red or black backgrounds) and a plain red or a plain black flag...

    also, if you wanna get into the pirate vs. buccaneer vs. privateer debate, people such as captain kidd (who was actually more of a pirate hunter than anything else) flew black skull and crossbones a lot...

    i don't have any of my books at the moment, but if i did :shakes fist:


    so take that mr. smart(ypants)

    no, I'm just sayin... I do have knowledge of dope pirate tats but I am very near to sleep (3 fingers left in the 40) and I'm not gonna go into it tonight, still, if you're serious I can provide some leads on some dope stories that might lead to 'original' imagery or some actual descriptions on flags/emblems for some quick flash...

    i used to think pirates were cool until i found out they were all into sodomy. think about it: a bunch of guys on a ship, together, long voyages=butt pirates. there weren't wenches all over the place. just a bunch of male pirates. that sucks. bugs bunny as well as many other childhood cartoons made pirates look cool. i'm disappointed.
