What with the new school year starting, and once again having to wake up for work every day, and over 150 names to learn, and teaching all of calculus in two days, there hasn't been much time to blog anything longer than a paragraph, and unwritten posts have been piling up.
However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!!! Arrrrrrr!!!!
It's not Dress Like A Pirate Day. Be sure to read all about this in the FAQ.
Also, Pirate Riddles for Sophisticates will never get old.
There is little to no evidence that real pirates talked in the manner that we associate with pirates. "Our present-day concept of the quintessential pirate" was created by actor Robert Newton in 1950.
