If he's seriously considering a job in the seafaring arts that's one thing, but he's in the woods.
Where there ever any Polish pirates?
 
2007-05-07 12:39:18 PM
Yes.

Count Maurycy Beniowski, also known as Baron Maurice de Benyowski, was born in Poland to a noble family. At that time Poland was partitioned into three parts. Beniowski was born in the Russian part and it determined his future life as an adventurer. As a youngster he took part in the Polish uprising to liberate Poland from the Russian rule (Konfederacja Barska) and after being captured by Russians was sent into exile to Siberia. However he managed to escape and after some tumultuous years he found himself leading an armed expedition headed toward Madagascar. On an African Island near Madagascar he managed to establish a stronghold, and pronounced himself the king of Madagascar. We can easily classify him as a pirate because he was not above attacking the shipping lanes around Madagascar, and he didn't represent any authority. One of the nearby islands (Mauritius) was named after this Polish adventurer and to this day he is remembered there.

Wow.
Thanks, AR!
I'm always finding new reasons to be proud of my people!

Some of the top American pilots during WWII were of Polish decent. Many of the great Allied pilots were Free Poles.
 
2007-05-07 12:59:15 PM
Arg, that be creepy matey.
 
2007-05-07 01:00:01 PM
I want to see some pics of this fort.
 
2007-05-07 01:00:03 PM
Before this devolves into a polish history thread let me say 2 things:

1. this could still be cool if these were a bunch of hot 17-22 yr old women who were looking to live out sapphic fantasies inspired by the porno flick "Pirates"

2. This thread is worthless without pics of hot babes in Pirate regalia

"Arrrr, been driving me nuts!"
 
2007-05-07 01:01:34 PM
Creepy unless you're a pirate, that is.
 
2007-05-07 01:02:38 PM
i'm polish and i definitely want to be a pirate!!

Building a pirate fort in the woods is always cool.

Always, you guys.

Yarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

/All I have to say about that, matey
 
2007-05-07 01:04:01 PM
The campers had skull-and-crossbones flags, pirate swords and a tiki bar stocked with booze.

If they threw in some wenches and this goes from creepy to farking cool.

/hard to get wenches when you spend your spring break building pirate forts though

I would like to add, who of us would NOT want a pirate fort that comes WITH booze?
 
2007-05-07 01:04:06 PM
I thought building forts was cool no matter what your age. They just get more complex the older you get. Like the 4-year-old with a Big Wheels turns into a 30-year-old with a Porsche. Older boy, same toy.
 
2007-05-07 01:04:16 PM
Two campers were charged with marijuana possession.

Well, that answered most of the questions I had about this story.

/marijuana can affect your gauge for creepy behavior
 
2007-05-07 01:04:27 PM
I'm 27 and I think that sounds pretty cool.

I'm kind of creepy though.
 
2007-05-07 01:04:27 PM
more like an ass-pirate... right?

/snap

I'm anxiously awaiting this one.

Subby has pirate envy.
 
2007-05-07 01:05:30 PM
FTFA : It was on an island, there was a tiki bar filled with booze, and 2 of them had pot.

If this isnt cool to the people of fark, Im with the wrong crowd.

/subby prolly told me to get off his lawn

tsk tsk tsk

Not a single global warming/pirates graph?

You make Al Gore cry.

I'm 30 and my dream is to have a pirate fort out in the woods, having a booty of booze and marijuana along wouldn't hurt either. Then again this is bad cause there would be no chance of seeing these pirate babes on girls gone wild.

/drtfa
//regulary falls asleep after Colbert Report~ leaving TV on, only to wake up to the girls gone wild infomercials they pre-crank the volume on

True.

Donald Ridenbaugh says he plans to fight the citations. He says deputies singled out his group, ignoring more well-established campsites on the island.

Beware of the prosecut'arrrr!

/Yeah...that sucked.

They were just doing their part to curb global warming

/So speaketh the FSM

That is one of my two favorite jokes ever. I can always count on it for a laugh

"He says deputies singled out his group, ignoring more well-established campsites on the island. "

Yeah, it couldn't be because you stood out or anything, lol.

And this rocks. I would totally hang out with these guys and be their pirate wench.
 
2007-05-07 01:09:32 PM
Something tells me that Subby is upset that he wasn't allowed in, hence the "creepy" part.

Because I think a pirate fort with your swashbuckling comrades is -sweet-

/21 years old
//doesn't consider self as "creepy"
 
2007-05-07 01:09:39 PM
bunch of guys spending a secluded weekend together with no watching of sports, hiring of strippers or killing things is gay as can be.
 
2007-05-07 01:09:50 PM
Just send some ninja in there to straighten shiat out.
 
2007-05-07 01:10:17 PM
I am disappointed in you, subby. This one totally deserves the img.fark.com tag. I would kill for my own island pirate fort with a tiki bar.

/Avast!
 
2007-05-07 01:10:36 PM
My friends and I made some little makeshift forts in the woods to play paintball. that was pretty fun. But we didn't stay out there after nightfall.
 
2007-05-07 01:11:07 PM
Actually, that sounds like a helluva lot of fun to me.

/would rather be a mongol horde than a group of Pirates
//me also gots me some Polski blood
 
2007-05-07 01:11:26 PM
That sounds like a great vacation to me...I wanna be a pirate!
 
2007-05-07 01:12:56 PM
There is absolutely no age when it is not cool to build a pirate fort, and suggesting otherwise is like giving a Cleveland Steamer to the baby Jesus. It's just wrong. Don't do it.
 
2007-05-07 01:13:05 PM
Darkfalz: /hard to get wenches when you spend your spring break building pirate forts though

You're not looking in the right places then.
 
2007-05-07 01:13:54 PM
foridian62: bunch of guys spending a secluded weekend together with no watching of sports, hiring of strippers or killing things is gay as can be.

1. They're probably making and playing their own sports. Twice as fun as watching them.

2. I'm sure that out of thirteen males, there a few with some good looking girls to come along for the ride

3. I don't know about you, but I'd be killing my dinner. Thats how pirates do it.


floridian62 is obviously another jealous outcast from the Pirate club across town
 
2007-05-07 01:14:51 PM
It said 13 "friends", why are you guys assuming it was all guys? Frankly if they want to build a fake pirate fort for a camping trip and the brought boozes AND women, more power to them.

They're inbred pirates!

I don't consider "drop the soap" a sport.

They will never get a girl out there because:

1. no air conditioning. girls don't like hot muggy.
2. bugs
3. no cold drinks. if you want to drink beer or booze, you have to drink it warm
4. no music once the batteries in the boombox run out

This sort of thing is strictly for homos.
