Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. You are actively encouraged to say things like "shiver me timbers!" and "avast behind!" all day, because you get so few real chances.
In related news, I have taken this opportunity to write about the use of space pirates as a plot device in televised science fiction. It's a bit of a stretch I know, but just as there should be more occasions for talking like a pirate, there should be more conversations about space pirates.
