    However....

    This "Captain Fool" character has got me thinking two things:

    1) How would one train to use a cutlass?It's just a bloody big cleaver that's wieldy. Pirates of the relevant era didn't use body armour as far as I know.
    2) "Captain Fool" is not as cool as Captain Birdseye.
    I suspect that answering this question as if it were serious will derail the thread entirely.

    Nevertheless: somebody at the Historical Maritime Combat Association might be able to point you in a fruitful direction.

    Arrrgh.

        Phrost,

        You ever try Goslings' Black Seal?

          Nope. Honestly I'm a tequila and cognac man.

          Not together.

          Edit: I should like rum since I'm (alegedly) descended from a fucking pirate (Drake), so maybe I'll check it out.

            Gosling's Black Seal to me tastes like sugar cane, goes great with Coke. We serve it specifically with Ginger Beer, it's called a Dark & Stormy.

              Sounds sweet (both senses of the word).

              I'll have to try it once I burn this stupid gut off successfully. The only calorie-laden drinks I touch these days are protein shakes.

                    Well I think "Captain Fool" has answered No. 2 question:

                    Is he as cool as Captain Birdseye?

                    No. Captain Birdseye wears a proper seaman's cap, is a grizzled sailor and sails a small clipper, having his crew subsist on fishfingers and vegetables. His whereabouts are at any time unknown, but that's fair enough.

                    Martial skill? Unknown again, but I'm sure the use of knives, chairs and other melee objects by his crew would be enough (plus nobody's going to rob a clipper carrying fishfingers)

                    Captain Fool admittedly is... a fool. He runs a singlestick school, which is great, but he has attached a very weird selling point to it.
                    What am I?:

                    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

                    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

                    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

                      but at least it's a FREE singlestick club.... so technically there is no selling...
                      (group of clubs actually, and definitely not a school.)

                      What? You ARE as cool as Captain Birdseye? hard-to-believe.....

                        I would NEVER cast such a claim sir! I was comparing YOU to captain birdseye.

                            The point is singlestick is kept alive more by the Boy Scouts and has a proper lineage easily traced to them.

                            However I wouldn't send my nephews to Scouts if I thought the scoutmaster thought every day was International Talk Like A Pirate Day and he got it horribly wrong.

                            The Scouts are weird at best, but they have a solid operation. This is just silly, Mr Fool. Plain and simple.

                                The shut up is fucked.
                                Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.
