A slab of beer? Also sounds like he needs to be more thrifty and start making bathtub gin like our grandparent's generation.

The actual limit is:

* 2 cases of 24 beers or pre-mixed drinks each
* 12 bottles of wine
* 2 bottles of spirits

Two categories at a time, per person per day. The only way that'll be a problem for you is if you're literally drinking two bottles of whiskey a day, every day.

I know it's not the main thrust of the article but I'd be interested in seeing a source for the Jolly Roger being used primarily by privateers. I was under the impression that pirates flew it specifically to distinguish themselves from privateers and government ships--as the latter were expected to show quarter to surrendering enemies even if they had been resisting and pirates very much were not--so you'd better just be safe and just hand over your poo poo right from the start.

It's not correct. Privateers were generally required to fly a variant of their hiring nation's flag, which would distinguish them from naval vessels but also indicate that they weren't just regular pirates. Many of these privateers turned to piracy after the wars settled down and their services were no longer required, and the skull/skeleton on a black or red background spread rapidly over the years. I would also be very hesitant to call privateers a "loose paramilitary organization."

Okay, short version of how that comic is wrong:

Privateers are basically mercenaries. They're given a letter of marque that puts them legally in the employ of a particular government, giving them permission to attack and plunder vessels of an enemy nation. The letter would indicate exactly what they were and weren't allowed to do and they generally had to follow laws and treaties to avoid getting in trouble with the admiralty court. They had to return captured vessels to get prize money or have the vessel legally transferred to their ownership. You would actually want to fly distinctive colors and keep your letter of marque on hand to avoid accusations of piracy, because that was a capital crime.

Pirates don't have a letter of marque and generally attack whoever. They may sail under false colors or pretend to have a letter of marque for deception, but they're operating illegally. Privateering is legal, piracy is not. The famous age of piracy with captains like Blackbeard, Black Bart, and Anne Bonny began when the War of Spanish Succession ended in 1714 and a ton of privateers ended up out of a job and not really knowing what to do except keep robbing ships. Triangle Trade became a huge thing at that time as well, which led to a rich field of potential prizes for anyone willing to become a pirate. The only way you could ever call privateers and pirates a "loose paramilitary organization" is if you take into account that they generally didn't attack each other and made attempts at alliances and even forming a free state at Nassau.

Funny enough, Assassin's Creed IV is actually a reasonably accurate depiction of this era and the relationships between the pirates for the time (obviously accounting for the fictional aspects). Stede Bonnet wasn't quite as silly and tubby as he is in the game, but he was just a wealthy landowner who got bored and annoyed with his wife and decided to commission a ship and become a pirate for the fun of it. It lasted up until he got hanged.

Yes, it's a Webley. The bore size suggests .455, which was last produced in 1923. Assuming it's not an air gun replica, I wouldn't want to shoot a gun in that condition.

Yeah, Naomi Wolf is the one who said gay people were regularly executed in Victorian England and turned out to have been badly misinterpreting a legal term that actually meant "Would have been sentenced to death but was actually released", and also picked as her homosexual martyr a guy who raped a small child.

"in Europe loving in front of your family and kids is very normal you stupid prude!"

The only place I've seen anyone unironically say this about medieval life is A World Lit Only by Fire, which is one of the worst and least accurate pop history books in the world but has unfortunately colored a lot of popular medieval history "knowledge" because it ended up assigned reading in a lot of college courses. Other claims include

* Medieval peasants had no sense of time and never went much further than their home village, which could lead to them becoming hopelessly lost if they ever left town.

* The focus on religion removed the medieval man's sense of self as an individual human, causing them to frolic naked in the summer due to having no shame.

* Cannibalism was a regular occurrence, as was poverty so great that you were left naked in an empty hut any time you had a bad year from selling everything you owned.

So basically the medieval countryside was just full of roving bands of nude cannibals. It also had one point where he took a medieval joke about a peasant fainting at the smell of perfume in a city and needing to be revived by waving a shovel of dung under his nose as actual fact that he repeated.

Just a tad.

For the record, she's also wrong. People at least put a curtain up and tried to stay quiet. Loudly loving your wife in front of your kids was considered as much of a faux pas as it is today.

Isn't this just an admission of Scorsese's complaint that superhero movies are theme parks rather than cinema? Like, the whole point of a popcorn blockbuster is for those woop-moments, he's just dressing it up in fancy/classics 101 allusions.

He’s technically right. Shakespeare’s works were mass market plays with crude humor that often had a contemporary political bent to please wealthy patrons and the nobility. The only real difference from modern blockbusters in intent is the language used.

Not specifically in Shakespeare but you do see references like that in other literature and it only gets stronger heading into the Victorians. If I remember my Chaucer correctly he drops a couple favourite inns during the Canterbury Tales.

Again: all our literature really is just dime novels, it’s just OLD dime novels so it feels more important.

There's a specific namedrop by Falstaff of Tewkesbury mustard, which was a popular variety at the time. The plays are full of what are basically Elizabethan pop culture references.

I had to cut down Romeo & Juliet to 1 hour for a show I did last year, and I decided to start with the entire unabridged script and go from there. There's a fuckton of useless stuff that gets cut out in most productions, including at least one wacky comedy scene with a band that's thrown into the middle of the climax right before Juliet is found "dead."
