ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

Pirates might have been convicts in the eye of British law, but they made many strides in the form of equality. For example, every pirate aboard the ship would have a vote on who the ranking officers were; the caption's authority could be challenged by anyone in times of peace; everyone aboard the ship would be given an equal share of their loot; they would raid slave ships and allow the rescued slaves to join the crew; every pirate was treated the same; and even women could join the crew.

Don't let your history textbooks fool you. They are written by the victors, and therefore one-sided.
#73 to #59 - anon (09/11/2013) [-]
Captain got a bigger percent. It wasn't all equal. Don't let your history textbooks fool you. The captain if you disobeyed or disagreed with his opinion was more likely to kill you than to listen and debate it.

The British actually hired people to steal gold from the spanish treasure ships. The Spanish called them pirates first not the British, and if the British weren't the victors back then who was?

women on the ship? usually as just as hoes. it was pretty uncommon to have women actually on the crew.

Eh most people who are more interested in Pirates than to say they are better than Ninja's most likely know that one mans Pirates (eg France) is another mans Privateer (eg England).

No liability either, if the French discovered that these pirates were actually English, they would simply be outlawed by the Brits as well.
Politics is a dangerous game to play.

Bitch, women were bad luck on ships.
Learn your maritime superstitions.
No British pirate crew in their right mind would allow a woman on the ship.

even though the most successful and ******* crazy pirate out there was a female asian pirate named Ching Shih

"No British pirate crew"
Y'know, maybe different cultures have different superstitions. What a crazy thought. Maybe Britain and China had COMPLETELY different cultures and thus COMPLETELY different superstitions? Food for thought.

Pirates were the first and only interracial jobs in the new Americas. It didn't matter if you were Black, White, Female, 12 years old, if you could do the job you were givin, you secured your share. Pirates also were almost always friendly to each other. If one were to have a problem with the other, they would sit down at a third party location and discuss it until an agreement was reached. Most notable pirates even prefered not to kill people, and gave every person on the opposing ship an opportunity to give up and join them both before and after they took it over.

In fact, the largest and most powerful fleet of pirate vessels ever were owned by a chinese Prostitute.
User avatar #87 to #71 - daentraya (09/11/2013) [-]
And the main reason for raiding ships was for basic necessities. They're pretty much stuck on the seas, with only few ports to land at. That's the eternal ******** struggle of a pirates life, so they didnt really have a choice
Also, compared to british fleets, a pirate had much more freedom in the onboard democracy

Do they rob merchant vessels?
User avatar #27 to #26 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
Look, I've explained this before. There are two big reasons why the Strawhat pirates don't attack towns or merchant ships.
1: Oda doesn't want the Strawhats to look like bad people. They're not supposed to be heroes, but they're not villains.
2: In the One Piece universe, due to the structure of the World Government and the fact that pirates are literally everywhere, civilians and merchants don't have much to take. All the worthwhile loot is either with government officials, the Navy, or has already been stolen by other pirates.
User avatar #28 to #27 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
Don't want to look like bad people.......

What the **** do you think a pirate is?
User avatar #30 to #28 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
They're like the Jesse James gang of pirates. They're outlaws, but not the "rob the weak" kind of outlaws, more like the " **** the government" kind of outlaws. It makes sense if you know who Luffy's and Ace's dads are.
#34 to #30 - htmm (09/11/2013) [-]
There actually was no proof that Jesse James took from the rich and gave to the poor. That kind of just blossomed from his reputation.

In reality, he stole whatever the **** he wanted from whomever the **** he wanted.
User avatar #37 to #34 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
I didn't necessarily say they gave to the poor. The Strawhats don't give to the poor either, they're just selective with their targets, typically taking out the oppressors to gain favor with the oppressed. Jesse James was pretty dangerous because of that favor, there were a lot of commonfolk that would stick their neck out for him.
User avatar #31 to #30 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
I don't know a thing about this show. I have to say, you're not selling me on the piracy thing.

Real pirates weren't robin hood. At best they were working for some national intrest, but even that was mostly selfish.
User avatar #35 to #31 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
Look, it's all semantics. In none of the Pirates of the Carribean movie do you actually see Johnny Depp siege a merchant ship or attack a town. But believe me, the One Piece pirates ARE pirates, even the Strawhats. Let me explain the setting to you.

The Great Pirate Era is in full swing. The death of former Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, left a massive power vacuum in the world. Since the title was now up for grabs, and with a legendary treasure to boot, every hardass in the world wanted to sail the seas and get their hands dirty. It's about ten years after the start of all this pirating that Luffy starts making a name for himself. During those ten years, certain pirates have become extremely powerful, others have been stuck small time, and the Navy has started to adopt tactics of brutality to start cracking down. (On one island, every child born within a rough two-year period was executed because it was rumored Roger had been with a woman prior)

So anyways, pirates rampant, Navy blistering, and the peasants are oppressed and scared. This makes it harder for new pirates, as the townsfolk are pretty much a dry resource. Small time pirates settle for what's left of these villages (Buggy, Arlong, etc.) but larger pirates know that the real prize is in stealing from the well-funded Navy, or better yet, from more successful pirates. This, plus the legendary treasure, plus the title of Pirate King up for grabs all escalates into one massive power struggle in the Grand Line. That's where pirates fight, and fight, and bleed, and fight, not just for treasure, but for power over other pirates, because at this point in the Great Pirate Era, everything that's worth taking has either been taxed by the World Government or has been stolen by pirates. It almost makes more sense to ally yourself with civilians for support. That's what the four Pirate Emperors do; rather than plunder, they protect certain islands, for regular cost of resources of course. Mostly pirates vs pirates tho.
User avatar #36 to #35 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
Yep.... all this stuff is pirate fantasy. Bears no resemblance to real pirates at all.
User avatar #39 to #36 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
Okay, look, the primary definition of pirate is as follows:
noun
1. a person who robs or commits illegal violence at sea or on the shores of the sea.
dictionary.reference.com/browse/pirate?s=t

It's right there. Pirates either rob or commit illegal acts of violence at sea, and the Strawhats do BOTH of those things on a fairly regular basis. I don't really care if it fits your personal definition of disease-ridden eye-patch wearing woman-raping black-toothed swashbucklers from the movies, One Piece pirates are pirates, and even if you think they aren't, it doesn't imply anything as to the quality of the show.
User avatar #40 to #39 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
You're very adamant, aren't you?
User avatar #41 to #40 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
This isn't the first time I've had this conversation. I just like One Piece a lot, and I dislike ignorant skepticism. The Strawhat Pirates are indeed pirates, people just like to think otherwise being they don't fit the American/European stereotype of pirate.
User avatar #44 to #41 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
Why do you feel it's necessary to defend the show?
User avatar #45 to #44 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
Because it's one of my favorite animes of all time, and I used to be very skeptical of it myself. If I perchance convince one person to embark on the same epic journey that I took when I first started the series, then it would have been worth my time to defend it. It's not for everyone I realize, but I prefer that people try it before criticizing it for something that only appears flawed from the outside.
User avatar #47 to #45 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
As good a reason as any, I suppose. Sadly, from what i've seen, it doesn't appear to be for me.
#48 to #47 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
May I ask what you didn't like about it? Keep in mind that the series has been running since 1997, so the animation, characters and plots become much more dynamic as you go.

I saw one episode, just didn't do it for me. Don't get me wron, I'm a big fan of over the top, but this show seemed to be going about it all wrong.

Plus, I also didn't like Naruto because what they called "Ninjas" looked more like "Battlemages" to me.

But what's it matter? Opinions don't count here, no matter how well thought out. Thumbs are the only thing anyone listens
#52 to #51 - adu (09/11/2013) [-]
Opinions count for yourself, and to those who are interested in your opinion. People who attack opinions just because they're different are only ever interested in their own. Those are the ones that don't matter.    
   
One Piece does do a lot of things over-the-top, but not as much as some animes like Bleach or DBZ, and it has much more charm and emotion than Naruto in my opinion (not to mention less filler.) If it's not for you, then so be it, but I honestly think one episode is too early to call it quits.

The real blackbeard was 6'5" and was known for wearing slow matches in his hair and beard so that during combat his entire face was wreathed in smoke.

When he was finally killed, it took five gunshots and twenty other wounds.


**** hollywood, that **** was real.
User avatar #76 to #21 - waterbottlemanboy (09/11/2013) [-]
I thought he hated fighting and killing and letting his people die, so he spread stories that he was a ruthless killer, so people would fear him and leave him alone.
User avatar #164 to #76 - tiredofthis (09/11/2013) [-]
No, actually he once was playing poker with his men and aimed a pistol under the table and blew one of his men's knees out.

When they asked him why he said, "If I don't kill one of you every once in a while, you'll forget who's in charge here.

I know a lot of cool Blackbeard stories.

I used to read a lot about pirates because I liked  But they weren't all just blood thirsty kill everyone steal everything criminals. A lot of them just wanted complete and total freedom. Which in the time piracy was big, total freedom wasn't all that common.  A lot of  pirates had a total hatred of government and the way they controlled and restricted people gave them reason to plunder places. Granted some where total villains, like Edward Low. However, somewhere actually decent guys that just wanted a merry life of adventure and freedom, for example Samuel Bellamy. Bellamy had a custom of dinning with the captains of the ships he attacked. Also, on one occasion, when Bellamy captured the ship Whydah, Samuel traded his ship, the Sultana, to the Captain of the Whydah.
