Another book finished:

I've read in the past a number of Osprey books dealing with pirates. Yesterday, I finished reading Osprey Warrior #158: Pirate: The Golden Age which I found most interesting of the lot, because the author points out the very short lifespan of a typical pirate of the era that gets the most notice. Even the most experienced of the pirates rarely survived more than four years of their actions at sea. It was a very intriguing read, therefore, because it didn't try to promulgate the myth of pirate riches and fun.

"Pirate fun" has got to be the silliest idea Hollywood created. Scum of the sea...and most died a horrible death.

Exactly. In comparison, Somalian pirates these days are having it easy.
