    • It is fascinating that the captain's version has more views than the quatermasters ... So some have only seen one version. I feel sad about them.

  • In short: -Branding. -Grey spent way too much time learning to talk like a pirate. -When pirates attack, work with them, you have a decentish chance of living unharmed. -Pirates were not THAT evil, more like, 90% evil.
