Sea Lore

LieSeasickness isn’t that bad. TruthYes it is, I failed the RYA Dayskipper Practical due to projectile vomiting.  It’s very, very horrible and may take years to improve.  When my uncle joined the merchant marines as a teen, it took about three years for him to get his sea-legs and, in the meantime, turned him into an ambulatory skeleton.  Also, I heard a story of how my uncles went on a ‘sports fishing’ trip off the south coast of England years ago.  (Sports fishing is like hunting, i.e. all the booze, but with rods instead of rifles).  No fish were biting until a marathon puking session chummed up the water nicely.  Lovely.  ‘Seasickness: The New Hollywood Diet.’

LieSea monsters don’t exist.  TruthYes they do.

LiePirates are cool.  TruthModern piracy is high-seas armed robbery and kidnapping with RPGs, Kalashnikovs and machetes.  Even in the old days, they were a bunch of largely horrible buggers.  Colourful chaps though.  Rock-stars of the 18th century? Well maybe, in a time that equated rock-stardom with lopping off heads and stealing stuff.

Avast ye scurvy dogs!
