Well, That's Just Great
International Talk Like a Pirate Day 2014

There’s still time to celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day! Try working these phrases into conversation tonight!

  • Excuse me. Could you direct towards the port? My ship is set to sail presently.
  • So sorry that I can’t keep up. Afraid my wooden leg is a skosh loose today and it’s hindering my ability to maintain a consistent pace on this constitutional.
  • Dearest Mildred. Thank you ever so much for the case of limes. I feel confident they shall keep my scurvy at bay.
  • I don’t know, Trevor. Maybe you’re a pirate because your dad was a pirate. Maybe that’s why I’m one too but all that matters is what you want right now. Do you want to be a pirate or do you want to study dance? They’re both right decisions,Trevor, but I can’t decide for you. Yo-ho-yo-ho. This life may not be for you.

On a related note, fuck you and your stereotypical assumptions about pirate diction.

Ducky: It’s dinnertime!
Me: No it’s not, Ducky.
Ducky: Yes it is!
Me: Afraid not.
Ducky: I specifically heard you say “Dinnertime!”
Me: The Lady and I are going out for a little bit. I said to her that we need to be home by dinnertime.
Ducky: There it is again! Two dinnertimes! Double foods!!!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I think you’re confused about how dinnertime works.
Ducky: Three-sies!
Me: But that’s pretty good counting for a dog.
Ducky: You say, “Dinnertime!” and then you get up and scoop my food into my bowl. Every time.
Me: I say it to announce that it’s dinnertime…
Ducky: Four! Better get started!
Me: Saying, “Dinnertime!” acknowledges dinnertime. It doesn’t trigger dinnertime.
Ducky: I’m going to need a bigger collar.
Me: It’s noon, Ducky. I’m sorry I said that word.
Ducky: What word?
Me: …
Ducky: I may be hungry.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Dinnertime!

nyctaeus:

This crater, 'The Sedan Crater', remains from the Plowshares program, the purpose of which was to test the peaceful use of nuclear explosions. The operating hypothesis was that a nuclear explosion could easily excavate a large area, facilitating the building of canals and roads, improving mining techniques, or simply moving a large amount of rock and soil. The intensity and distribution of radiation proved too great, and the program was abandoned. The “Sedan” device was thermonuclear—70 percent fusion, 30 percent fission—with a yield of 100 kilotons. The crater is an impressive 635 feet deep and 1,280 feet wide. The weight of the material lifted was 12 million tons.[Taken from the book Nuclear Landscapes, by Peter Goin]

And I took this shot from Jabba’s skiff…

I know it looks like a horribly inept phishing attempt, but actually Smething Roryds is my stage name. 

Or to be more accurate, IT WILL BE FROM NOW ON!!!!
