    Sorry.

    As promised, in with the Jolly Roger, or to be more specific, the flags of famous real life pirates.

    First up, the flag of Bartholomew "Black Bart" Roberts.

    The most famous resident of my neighborhood is a bum known as Pirate. Walks around telling jokes and pirate stories, smokes cigarettes out of his missing eye, hoping people will buy him some food and booze. A neighborhood fixture for decades.



    If I get around to making an avatar, it will be of him.

    Here's a cool write-up about him I found.
    formerly coke & comics
