  • Or maybe they can just pay a qualified surgeon more. I figure an ordinary surgeon is already well paid so a pirate surgeon should naturally make a lot more to make up for the additional risk. Heck, they even risk making less money than what they would otherwise make. What if the crew doesn't acquire a whole lot of loot or acquires none at all? You better double their share of the reward. Plus surgeons are pretty smart, they probably want to see records of your past success before signing up and chances are they will probably read the contract agreement to see if it's to their liking.

  • Wait so does this sort if make pirates communists? They don’t believe in private property (they trespass it all the time), they share the profits among the people and the leaders are chosen by the people and are for the people because they can be replaced at any time right? Pirates are the real comrades bro

  • 'which genetics?' 'sorry, after the nazis, eugenics and pseudo-scientific production and use of genetics correlated to race, research in this field will be clogged forever, so i can't give you an answer but the biological paradigma of genetics+environment = you, though most people like to slide past the genetics part, for the reasons above'. That would be tooo long, 'no matter' is much more incisive.
