Interesting facts regarding pirates:
1. Did you know that humans evolved from pirates? Apparently humans share around 95% DNA with monkeys, and more than 99.9% DNA with pirates.
2. Global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, the suppression of local rarities and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of pirates since the 1800s.
3. Real pirates use cutlasses, those “pirates” in the Indian Ocean are guys with machine guns, cruising around in power-boats. They’re not pirates. And the song-downloading “pirates” are smelly nerds, and therefore not real pirates either.
