Crew

I, Eduardo Blomar of the Planet Earth, desire to sign on to this Glorious Grand Adventure as Crewman for The Precariat. Many a calm night on deck have I gazed upward to the stars and thought to myself "I have seen every Continent of my Homeworld and have beheld many wonders, but my destiny lies out ...

Re: Introduction

Much work is being done with developing a 'solar paint' that I believe will eliminate the need for 'panels'. The entire surface of the ship can be coated so that any area facing light will collect/convert it to energy. There is also being developed lightweight cells embedded into thin plastic that c...

Re: House slaves

Who are you talking to (at)? Who do you think visits this forum? It's fairly new, and not a lot of people know about it yet. Those who do are probably connected to Ernie in some way (as I am) and are NOT the crowd who needs to hear what you are putting out here. Add to that your flippancy and berati...

Re: Cargo Design

My Good Fellow Pirates,

In consideration of receiving/delivering cargo in a Lighter Than Air Vehicle you must remember ballast displacement equal to the cargo for attaining liftoff weight.

I agree with Ernie and add that steel cable should sufficient for standard containers.

Re: The Pirate Code

Men can be animals, and moreso Pirates. Captain Bartholomew Roberts became famous for his Code in 1671, which must be signed before boarding: I. Every man has a vote in affairs of moment; has equal title to the fresh provisions, or strong liquors, at any time seized, and may use them at pleasure, un...

A Pirates Prayer of Thanks

I come to you with humble thanks for all that you’ve delivered, For Englishmen to walk the planks and for timbers left unshivered. I thank you for a glassy sea and the steady blowing breeze, For giving all these things to me without making me say please. And I thank you for the horizon where sea an...

Be ye Land-Lubber or PIRATE?

I see a lot of senseless Scuttlebutt on these boards. What be all this nonsense of 'in-tee-lectuool propity' and why such a hang-up on 'money'? All a Pirate needs is fresh water, provisions, and a stiff breeze - and even that last isn't always necessary. Once we take 'to the air' it will be as on gl...
