    Was The Pirate Code a Real Thing?

    Pirates remain one of our most romanticized groups of villains, from Captain Hook in Peter Pan to Long John Silver in Treasure Island, pirates have become a part of our stories, and our cultural mythology. Even in this modern day, buccaneers have taken center stage thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which brings back the legends of Davy Jones, The Flying Dutchman, and other common myths that were found in general sailing culture, and specifically in the golden age of piracy during the 1600s.

    Rounds flew once again in the streets of Wilmington, Delaware. A 25-year-old man received medical attention based on his bullet wounds.

    DERMATOGLYPHICS: BE CAUTIOUS

    DERMATOGLYPHICS: BE CAUTIOUS

    To save your precious time, I am claiming at the very beginning that dermatoglyphics is nothing but a fraud and deception. That being said, it is even worse than fortune-telling and astrology as should be in the same group as macrobiotic diet, anti-vaccine and multi-level marketing. At least, fortune-tellers and astrologers never claim themselves science-based.

    Reason First: Only Individualism can Save MS-13 Members

    Speculation about whether women cause wars has been thrown around for millenia. Each instance where it would seem like a lady sparked a combat action is shrouded in mystery, even fallacy. But for the MS-13 and 18th Street Gang, like other rivalries, a female may have been the catalyst for the two warring factions.

    My Enigmatic Memoirs

    My Enigmatic Memoirs

    It was Saturday, which meant only one thing; soccer. Lacing up the cleats for another day of coaching my proud, eight year old warriors. Shane wasn’t interested in soccer. He wasn’t interested in any sports. He was however, passionate about picking dandelions on the soccer field, a trait he inherited from me. I was coaching for one simple reason . . . I didn’t want some frustrated, under achieving, former jock, screaming at my son because he really didn’t give a shit. Shane and I preferred the flowers, well, more precisely, the pretty yellow weeds.
