Topic: Pirates and other stereotypes
Thanks to Hollywood, many stereotypes have been created. Please post any others that you can think of.
Pirates had no reason to keep pet monkeys or parrots around unless they were going to sell them. Not all pirates were cruel people. Black Beard was not a great pirate, as he only captured less than thirty ships. Black Bart (Barthalomew Roberts) captured four-hundred fifty six ships, and he was religious, and hated cruelty. Pirate captains did not always wear tricorner hats.
Ninja typicly disguised themseves as gardners and the like. When they did wear costumes, they usualy used Noh costumes. When throwing knifes, the knives would spin, not go perfectly straight. They did not use nunchucks. Ninja did have honor.
