The lesser of two weevils

Tomorrow is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. I will be seriously disappointed if I meet anyone who does any such thing.

I will however buy a drink for anyone I meet who observes International Talk Like Dr Stephen Maturin Day.


  1. It fair makes me weep that the effort that *should* be going into a space elevator, or lunar colonization, or carbon sequestering is instead being diverted into stuff like 'talk like a pirate day'. All that networked technology potential...wasted!

    On balance, I prefer to support 'White Dot' and their turn-off TV week (April 19-25 next year)...

  2. Ooh! I hadn't heard of that one but it already sounds like a powerful argument.
