Did you say carol
The english stole the name of our kings and made it a normal name
“Hello,” says a grog-swilling, peg-legged scurvy dog entering your office. “I’m Francine Caesar, a mighty pirate. I’d like to suggest that instead of wasting all that money on attacking pirates you simply buy them off with barrels of bullion, jewels and Maxtopian gold! There’ll still be pirates around, sure, but as long as everyone’s paid off, they won’t hinder your trade. Not much anyway.”
“That’s the second biggest load of bilge I’ve ever seen!” says Captain Grapnel, CFO of Hispaniola Shipping Insurance, LLC. “Shiver me timbers, if these scurvy dogs don’t be cutting into me profit margin! Me comprehensive coverage has to pay out for victims o’ illegality, and of course theft be illegal in this country, bu’ that be giving me an idea - what if we were to have privateers? That is to say, if ye were to make piracy legal but with a quota o’ sorts, like huntin’? That way me and mine can stay in business and ye can get a fine cut o’ th’ booty from licence fees! Savvy?”
“Come now, that’s hardly fair,” argues ‘gentleman pirate’ Taupebeard de Gauche with a bow and flourish. “There is an ancient tradition of actively redistributing wealth on the high seas, and we active redistributors serve an important role in the global economy. You would not keep a family-run bookstore from handing down its business from generation to generation, would you? We simply ask, nay, demand the same right! And get rid of the word ‘pirate’. It’s a slur. We are corsairs - not common sea-faring thugs.”
ARR, T'DAVEY JONES' LOCKER WITH YE ALL!
Alice Parker you are adorable. I love how you care for me. But I love you so much, you will always be beautiful to me no matter what life brings. I love that you keep in shape so you will be around with me for a long time before Mister Death comes for us.
Alice Parker, your spirit will always be beautiful and I love you.
People declaring the RMB dead after less than a couple hours of silence. People do have life outside of NS, and in Asian time zones we have less players.
Also, remember silence is golden
Edit: what really gets my goat is the ones that declare it after 15 minutes of no posts.
