  1. Torture and Punishment

    How about Running the Gauntlet (notably used in the Royal Navy as a punishment for minor theft)... The condemned was prevented from rushing by the master-at-arms with a cutlass and pushed forward by a corporal, while being beaten with rope yarns that were plaited into so-called "knittles" (a word for a string; possibly sound-associated with nettles), which looked like smaller, improvised versions of the cat o' nine tails .

  10. I'm currently drinking a . . .

    How about an 'Ambachts Roestbikkertje' (Ambacht being my home port, and the rest could be translated as 'Little Rust-Chipper' ), a local herbal liqueur...
  11. POTC 4 is at this time....

    Here's a freightening thought: Captain Jack is trying to find the Fountain of Youth (since he wants to be immortal)... What if he finds it, jumps in, and actually becomes younger? Then, the role of Jack Sparrow might be taken over by.... YEP!!!
  12. Ahoy! As I be'n told t'was a Dutch term itself! I be welcomin' ye to the Pub. I saw the photos and left a note about the "Pirate Chaser" and Dutch Boats in general. Lookin' forward to havin' a Gam now and then.
