I basically made this thread to be link-dump for things that people find interesting that have nothing to do with comics really. Maybe this will inspire some conversation eventually.

I just found this list of the top 25 pirate movies and I'm going to watch Ice Pirates, which is defined by IMDB as "In the far future water is the most valuable substance. Two space pirates are captured, sold to a princess, and recruited to help her find her father who disappeared when he found information dangerous to the rulers. A real Space Opera with sword fights, explosions, fighting robots, monsters, bar fights and time warps."

Might have to watch that one.

I used to love Hook. Such a classic.

I'm not really a fan of Hook. I don't hate it but I don't love it. I loved Cut-Throat Island as a kid though.

In my head, I always kind of put Time Bandits as a kind of Pirate movie.

I agree 100% with this article on why basic income is necessary. But I'm a lot less certain it will actually happen. It seems to me that the people with the most money have a vested interest in making sure it doesn't.

Any country implementing this right would be the closest to utopia I think there can really be, which is why it will never happen.

I'm watching Ice Pirates now. I think he just said his penis was called Dave Passionstorm.
