September 19 - Talk Like A Pirate Day

Unattributed, Jack of all Blogs, Sept 19, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Arrrrgh. It's 'Talk Like a Pirate' Day once again - has a year passed so quickly? Well, me hearties, this here is a nice article from last year with advice for would-be swashbucklers. Like: "Choose yer battles well, mate. If ye shoots a broadside at a galleon, ye'd best have more than a dinghy to back it up." Arrrrgh! Ye got that right, mate! And most important, "Know that you are master of your own ship. You never have 'no choice' in your life, even if you're in prison and shackled hand and foot. Even if you're about to die, you can choose to die well." Aye, matey.
