Hate to say it but cant go past Pirates of the Caribbean! And if I were a pirate I think Id have to carry a cutlass and a cool flintlock style pistol! Traditionalist, I am.

and I'd be a more Firefly / Serenity type pirate. I'd be a space pirate if I had a choice.

I would never expect to see Monkey island on Atlassian community! Wonderful!

Monkey island, Prince of Persia and Prehistoric were my first three games I played on my PC 286  (back in '93 I guess?). 

I remember it took my brother and me a lot of time to find out how to get through the insult sword fighting as we were children and didn't speak English much :-).

I loved all of these games @Hana Kučerová! I would continue with the list of games, but I I think it would be out of scope!

However, Sid Meier's Pirates would be within the scope of this thread! Lovely game as well!

So... this topic has historical meaning to me.

Moons ago in another lifetime, one of my colleagues was giving a talk on doing a sales pitch where he commented if I said <insert another colleague's name> is a pirate enough times, eventually you will think he is a pirate. He had a slide that said he was a pirate that repeated many times in the deck. At the end was a final "he's a pirate" slide. 

He forgot about that LAST slide in an unfortunate copy/rewrite thing we were all in... with a customer... and we all became pirates that day. A club as it were.

After that we engaged in puerile mischief in company meetings seeing how often we could insert pirate references with nobody the wiser. 

Our standard greeting amongst ourselves was "Yargh".

Cap'n Depp certainly wins the category fer Most Memorable Pirate, but I can nah help yearnin' fer a reboot o' the Hornblower series. So long as they can find someone who's jus' as good an actor as Ioan Gruffud, I'll manage t' be satisfied wit' it.

As far as weaponry, I can nah reckon o' much I'd rather 'ave fer protection than a dagger, a saber 'n brace o' pistols. Thar's no better way t' signal yer swashbucklin'-ness than t' be armed t' the teeth.

Plus, Three Rings was really the first time it clicked that tech work at a "real company" could be fun. Take a look at that office!

A good reminder of an interview with Daniel James, the Three Rings CEO. It's been too long to find the quote, but he mentioned that developers do their best work when they're rested and happy. Even pirates need a break - take it easy this weekend everyone!    *mutters about finding his old Puzzle Pirates account and going for a sail*

Growing up I couldn't get enough of "The Pirate Movie". I have purposely not re-watched it since the 80s because I know it was cheesy and would rather remember how much I liked it than be disappointed by re-watching it.

YES! heart I really loved that movie as a kid. I agree it's probably best left in the past, but sometimes my curiosity just gets the better of me...

While not exactly a "pirate" movie, there are a lot of pirate elements in the classic, the Princess Bride.

Dread Pirate Roberts for example, and of course, the shrieking eels
