Hack Like a Pirate Day

September 18, 2011


Aaarrrgghhhh, maties! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and the Cap’n is as green as the barnacles on a ship’s hull. He’s been coughin’ like he’s drunk some bad grog and has a fever that’s threat’n t’burn his eye patch. ‘Tis a sad, sad day.

D’ye know what is worse? On Saturday we took to land to watch the movie Contagion. The lad coughed all through the film, causin’ a bit of paranoia in the lass sittin’ to his right. (She’s a might leery of tendin’ to his germy contagiousness.)

    Your pirate language translation software is sophisticated. It’s not just one-for-one translation. It looks at word order too. Interesting…
