Pirates: Tides of Fortune

Ahoy Captains!

The day of scurvy pumpkins and scary stories has come!

We have prepared for you a new thematic wallpaper and a Halloween legend.

So, read a breathtaking story and feel the Halloween spirit!

According to Irish folklore...

A man named Jack, well known for his drunkenness and quick temper got very drunk at a local pub on All Hallows Eve. He met the Devil outside the pub because the Devil wanted his soul. Jack asked him one more drink but he didn't have the money to pay.
So the Devil took the shape of a coin and Jack put it into his wallet that had a cross-shaped catch. Jack agreed to free the Devil under one condition: he should let him live for another year. The Devil accepted.

First Jack was good then he slipped back into his evil ways. The following year the Devil reappeared and asked Jack to accompany him. Jack told the Devil to take an apple from a tree; when the Devil climbed up, Jack carved a cross on the tree and the Devil was trapped again. This time Jack asked the Devil ten more years of life in exchange for his freedom: again the Devil had to accept.
Unfortunately Jack died almost a year later. In paradise he was not accepted. In hell, the Devil recognized him and refused him admission; but, since he wasn't so bad, he gave Jack a piece of coal to help him find his way in the dark of limbo. Jack put the piece of coal into a turnip and it became known as "Lack O'Lantern". On All Hallows Eve you can still see Jack's flame burning as he searches for a home.

The Irish used to carve turnips or beets as lanterns and use them on Halloween night as festival lights. When they emigrated to the USA, they brought their traditions with them: they couldn't find turnips in America but they found a lot of pumpkins which were suitable substitutes to make a Jack O'Lantern; since then, pumpkins are an essential part of Halloween celebrations.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

… when travelling across the Aegean Sea, Caesar was kidnapped by pirates. As ransom, the pirates demanded twenty talents. Caesar laughed at them because they didn’t know who he was, and suggested they ask for fifty talents instead. He was held for 38 days during which time he wrote poems and speeches which he read aloud.
Those who didn’t appreciate what he was saying he called “illiterate Barbarians.” Laughingly, Caesar threatened to kill them all. After his random came, he was set free. Immediately, he manned numerous vessels, sought after the pirates, and caught them almost immediately. They were all imprisoned and crucified.

... Pirates believed that whistling on a ship would ‘whistle up a storm’!
... if the injured pirate survived the amputation , and received proper medical attention (which was highly unlikely aboard a pirate ship) he received some sort of primitive substitute for his arm or limb (usually a spare plank, or sometimes nothing at all). For obvious reasons an injured pirate was no longer as effective as an able bodied seamen, and for the most part could no longer carryout his designated duties. Such pirates were compensated for their loss . Actually, most pirate crews organized fairly sophisticated and favorable conditions for injured crew members. Injured pirates were not only compensated financially, but oftentimes they were also offered to do non-physically demanding work on the ship. Such work could include operating cannons, cooking meals, and washing the ship decks.
So what a typical pirate received when s/he lost a limb?
1 piece of eight = $0.96 USD
Loss right arm : 600
Loss of left arm : 500
Loss of an eye : 100
Loss of a finger : 100
Loss of right leg: 500
Loss of left leg: 400

PIRATE LEGEND

Captain Flint

Captain Flint is a character from Treasure Island and is considered one of the most evil pirates in history - becoming a man of legend and the one responsible for burying the great treasure (approximately £700,000) on an island located in the Caribbean Sea in which he was assisted by six of his crew-members. After the treasure was buried, he murdered all six of them and left the corpse of Allardyce with outstretched arms pointing to the location of the treasure.

The location of the treasure was marked by Flint on a map dated 1750 that was entrusted to his first mate William "Billy" Bones, and later into the hands of the hero of the novel, Jim Hawkins.
The only person Flint was said to fear was his quartermaster John Silver, who later even called his parrot "Captain Flint" in mockery.
Flint is said to have died in Savannah, shouting "Darby M'Graw - fetch aft the rum...." His death was said in the book to have been caused by the effects of rum. The inscription on the map suggests that he died in 1754.

You did a great job and 3 randomly chosen winners get 500 RUBIES each.

So the lucky winners are:

- Mark Ward-Taylor

- Hip Briseno

- Sharon Smith

And the correct answers are:

1. What is the contemporary name for the Caribbean island 16th-Century pirates referred to as Hispaniola?

- Haiti (Hispaniola and Jamaica became integral strategic positions for pirates ruthlessly pillaging ships and port villages during the "Golden Age" of piracy (approximately 1650-1725). The Republic of Haiti and the Dominican Republic now share the large island then known as Hispaniola.)

2. The modern dollar sign ($) is derived from symbols that appeared on which infamous manner of pirate currency?

- Pieces of eight ( Pieces of Eight, properly known as Eight Reales or Pesos, featured the Spanish Coat of Arms on one side, and the Pillars of Hercules from the Straight of Gibraltar on the other).

3. What name did pirates give to ships they succesfully managed to sack?

- Prize (Pillaged ships were called prizes. A gam is a whaling term that means a friendly meeting between two ships at sea. When ships "tack" they change direction by turning the bow into the wind.)

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

… Rogers Woodes , English privateer and governor of the Bahamas was an exceptional pirate hunter. He offered pardons to pirates in an effort to get them to turn. While most were skeptical, they soon found him to be sincere and eventually 2,000 pirates accepted the pardons and made the Bahamas virtually pirate free. Rogers knew the habits of pirates and he was certain that many of the pardoned pirates would go back to their evil ways. But this concerned him little. Rogers recruited men from among those pardoned to hunt down those who returned to their old ways. The move was quite successful and eventually many of the brethren of the coast were "dancing the devil's jig" on the gallows.

… most pirates never learned how to swim. They’d rather drown right away than be marooned or eaten by sharks.

… the invention of gunpowder is usually attributed to Chinese alchemy, and is popularly listed as one of the "Four Great Inventions" of China. The invention was made perhaps as early as during the Tang Dynasty (9th century), but certainly by the Song Dynasty (11th century). Knowledge of gunpowder spread throughout the Old World as a result of the Mongol conquests of the 13th century. It was employed in warfare to some effect from at least the 14th century, although the development of effective artillery took place during the 15th century, and firearms came to dominate Early Modern warfare in Europe by the 17th century.

PIRATE LEGEND

The Mermaids

Legends of half-human, half-fish creatures go back thousands of years. Everyone has seen pictures of mermaids. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transforms herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.
Sightings were made by the early Arabs and the Greek Pliny in 586 A.D. Many medieval sailors claimed to have seen them and such reports continued right into the 1900's.

The Lizard in Cornwall is a high plateau surrounded by the sea, with numerous hidden little coves and beaches, just the sort of area for mermaid stories.

Many Cornish people, particularly sailors, have claimed to have seen or heard a mermaid and belief in them was once widespread. There are many stories of mermaids seen on the rocks and of mermaids sitting weeping and wailing on the shore.

The mermaids in Cornish stories possess many of the features of mermaids the world over. They are beautiful, often seen combing their golden hair and live for a long time without ageing. Like many British and Irish mermaids, the mermaid in this story has more sympathy, inquisitiveness and interest in humans than other mermaids.

It was often thought that people with a knowledge of healing or a knowledge of the future gained these powers by supernatural means, either from the witches, fairies or, in this case, a mermaid. This is not the only tale passed down the generations, of special powers given to an ancestor from a mermaid. Preparing a vessel of water, which would show the face of a thief, as in the story, is a common means of detection that occurs in many myths.

Mermaids are one of the most famous mythical creatures, depicted regularly in literature and film. The "Mermaid's Rock" can still be seen off the coast and you can visit Kynance cove and the beaches by the Lizard.

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

... the name of the drink is due to the name of Grog is due to Admiral Edward Vernon, whose nickname was Old Grogram?
In 1740 he ordered that the rum was diluted with water and the beverage was given the name grog in disdain for Vernon's command decision. With that said, the word was used in the Caribbean at least as early as 1718. However, it is uncertain of the "grog" before 1740 was rum mixed with water or some other island concoction. What is known is that after Vernon started the practice, Rum mixed with water (and usually lemon or lime juice) was called grog. Some sources suggest that Edward Vernon was actually nick-named "Old Grog" after he instituted the policy of mixing the sailors rum.Water and rum mixed together was often called Grog.

... pirates also had superstitions!

It is believed that the soul of the ship is embodied in the ship's bell. For this reason, the bells of shipwrecked vessels are preserved whenever possible. Bells of sunken ships are supposed to ring from beneath the seas where the wrecked craft lies.Like the bell of a church, the ship’s bell had the task of keeping away all hostile influences such as storms and devils.It is said that a ship’s bell that rings without human aid is an omen of death.

Cats brought luck. If a ship's cat came to a sailor, it meant good luck. If the cat approached the sailor and then went away, it was bad luck. If a cat was thrown overboard, a storm and very bad luck would follow.

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

... captain Benito de Soto was Galician pirate, and captain of the Burla Negra ("Black Joke"). He proved to be one of the most bloodthirsty pirates of any age, murdering crews who fell into his hands and sinking their ships. He became so notorious that ships sailing from South Armerica refused to sail alone. They would form up in convoys around St. Helena in order to attempt safe passage. The most infamous episode in de Soto's career came on 19 February 1828, when the Burla Negra happened upon the Morning Star en route from Ceylon to EnglandEngland . After killing some of the passengers and crew with cannon-fire, de Soto murdered the captain and took possession of the ship.
Many of the captured crew were killed, while women passengers were raped before being locked in the hold with the rest of the survivors. De Soto then scuttled the ship, thinking to leave no evidence of the attack, but the imprisoned survivors managed to escape and prevent the Morning Starfrom sinking until a passing merchant vessel rescued them the following day.

... Corvette (Sloop of War) was a speciallized "brig rigged" sloop of war with only two masts. A sloop of war was a two or three masted fore and aft rigged ship with a single fighting deck.
The Corvette also has her guns arranged on a single fighting deck.
Two masted sloops of war and corvettes typically carried between 12 to 20 guns ranging between 6 to 12 pounders. Larger three masted sloops of war could carry more guns but would still have a single fighting deck
As the ships become less well armored its ability to maneuver increases. So this would make the both Corvette and sloop-o-war a fast light ship that could attack quickly but not bring an enormous amount of fire power to hand.

PIRATE LEGEND
St. Elmo's Fire: St. Elmo's Fire is named after the Italian Saint Erasmus (Elmo in English). St. Erasmus is the patron saint of Mediterranean sailors. St. Elmo's Fire is a weather phenominon that occurs when a large amount of atmospehric electricity is present, usually before or after a thunder storm. It is usually seen as a good omen by men at sea, a sign that the very finger tips of God has come down from Heaven to protect the ship from danger. St. Elmo's Fire appears as blue flame or sphere at the top of a ship's mast or masts, often for minutes at a time. It does not produce heat or cause things to burn. Sometimes the sphere will break up and dance along the yardarms and upper lines of the ship. On ships with more than one masts the flame may appear at the top of each mast or dance about like a blue flame licking the top of of all the sails.
Basically as electricity builds up in the atmosphere before or storm or disippates after a storm it is attracted to the top of the masts which act as grounded lightning rods. The elctricity causes the tips to brightly glow in a blue or whitish blue light. Despite the scientific explanation, the light is still seen today as a sign of good luck or fortune, escpecially when it appears near then en of a tempest. At that time, it is seen as a sign that St. Elmo has watched over the ship through the storm and answered the prayers of her crew.

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

....Diabolito or Little Devil was one of the most violent pirates of the era. He was a 19th century Cuban pirate. He actively engaged the United States Navy and was one of the main fugitives pursued during later American naval expeditions in the Caribbean during the 1820s.
Diabolito was killed in the water when he refused to surrender.

... Earrings were given to young sailors to commemorate their first crossing of the equator, or when they rounded the treacherous waters of Cape Horn, the southernmost tip of South America. Many of them believed that pierced ears would prevent seasickness. Others believed that a gold earring served as a protective talisman and that a man wearing an earring wouldn't drown.

However, many of the pirates wore this dressing for a practical use - in case of their death the earring became a pay for their transportation to families in order to be properly buried. And pirates who were responsible for firing the guns used the earrings like ear plugs.

.....what means a pirate whoop yo-ho-ho?

In the famous song from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" we can hear: "Fifteen men on the dead man's chest. Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! ". It is logical to assume that the "Yo-ho-ho" - is the laughter of pirates, but it's not.

Such a whoop was used by English sailors when they had to make an effort together in some work - it corresponds to the phrase, "Heave,ho!".
