Have you been talking like a pirate today?

To err is human; to arrrrr is pirate: it’s not too late to get a few arrrrrs in before midnight!

Here’s a slideshow of pirate types (edit: apparently Picasa REQUIRES a logged in Google profile to view stuff now – so here’s a link to the slideshow on Flickr):

  1. I noticed there was quite a lot of talking like a pirate going on in #QT tweets yesterday.

  2. Are me hearties going ahead with the suggested meet-up this Sunday?

  3. The embedded slideshow isn’t showing up for me. Do you have a link?

  4. Ah, now I know why I can’t see it! You have to have a Google Profile.

  5. Seriously? They’ve blocked picasa images from those who don’t have a Google profile now?
    I didn’t know. I’ll put those images up somewhere else then.

  6. Thanks, Tigtog! Yeah, I could create a profile and fill it with lies (since I don’t expect them to make things public without warning the way Faceborg did, but I don’t trust them to explain the settings accessibly either), but I don’t want to risk losing my Gmail. It’s accumulated a lot of things I might want to find again, since I created it as a throwaway account to join Dreamwidth with! *should clear old stuff out of my various inboxes sometime*

  7. d’oh! I hadn’t seen your comment at 9, and that link doesn’t work either. It says “Oh No! We couldn’t find anything.” *feels silly posting so many comments about a fun item*

  8. hm – I’m over the 200 pic limit for a free account, but it’s supposed to still display the latest ones and only hide the oldest ones from view. Annoying.

  9. p.s. please don’t feel silly – FUN IS SRS BIZNESS

  10. p.p.s. deleted three old items to get under 200 pics – try again?

  11. I’ve enjoyed people talking like other kinds of pirate.
    There’s copyright activism in a closed account:

    I’m going to rip this movie so I can add closed-captions for someone with an auditory disability!!! #talklikeapirateday

    And political commentary:
