    Ahaargh! Piracy is cool.
    Best way to do it on Olde England was to licence as a Privateer.

    Poole has a famous pirate honoured every year on Harry Paye Day.

    Harry and his crew were based in Poole, and raided French and Spanish ports, taking merchant ships with everything from spices, wine and gold. There's an enormous pinnacle of rock beyond the Devils ground named Old Harry Rock, just across Man of War bay (i shit you not, these are real names)

    Harry and his crew were a bit too good for the Spanish and French's liking. Eventually after Harry and the lads raided Gijon and Finisterra (stealing the Cathedrals massive gold crucifix) and trashing the towns, the French and Spanish sailed into Poole harbour , and attacked the town. Harry was away ,but they were driven off by the townspeople (they are still a bit hard nowadays) Sadly, Harry's brother was cut down before they left.

    They thought it was all over... So the French started sailing past , with one ship carrying the finest of Frances wine.
    It was the first one Harry's crew took in revenge for his brother..On return to Poole the cargo was shared amongst the town and everyone was drunk for weeks in celebration. Every year since , this is celebrated.

    That sounds way more glamorous than my great grandmothers career! Dont even think she had a boat, lured ships to wreck with false beacons and took what washed ashore, including hacking rings off the sailors hands with a small axe😁

    Aha-that was known as 'wrecking' here, tis still a form of piracy. As looting a wreck was often punished with hanging, those on shore had to choose between the bounty of the sea or saving the survivors....Dead men tell no tales. Popular in Devon and Cornwall in England.

    One night when Coppinger the Dane was washed ashore they got more than they bargained for- they claim he was the Devil himself. Look him up!

    Yea, its a lower form of piracy than the shwashbuckling grog-glugging type with cannons and stuff for sure. Read about cruel coppinger just now, hehe! Typical danish mindset if there ever was one!

    Yes- the spot where his gang beheaded the revenue man , Parminter, is just below my in laws beach house. Parminter had a fearsome mastiff called Satan, who carried two loaded pistols in a special collar and accompanied Parminter when tackling smugglers and pirates. When they ambushed Coppinger's men, the dog had vanished -Parminter was seized and his head cut off over the gunnells of a rowboat. The gang decided to go for a beer to celebrate with his head as a trophy, but when they got to the inn they threw it down the well outside. The maid later hauled up the bucket , only to find bloody water with a head in it! The pub to this day, is called 'The Bucket of Blood'...

    Nearby Bournemouth is entertaining . Red light district, and the streets are full of drunken young girls on hen nights in the summer. A buddy used to own the UK's biggest custom bike biz in town, which was a good place to hang. He used to get girls from local lap dance clubs to model with his bikes.

    Went riding with a friend . He finished the bike fairly recently and is just doing short hops while he's working out any bugs. On the way back he wanted to stop locally and take a couple of pics at the Kings Park Psychiatric center in our town. Look it up.

    Damn , those places give me the creeps. That's building 93 in the background? We had two large asylums in my home city, when the population inside declined they sold them , and they got developed as yuppie apartments!! I know who's really fucking crazy- people who pay a fortune for one of those apartments. Who'd wanna live in a building steeped in despair and misery?

    Yes that is building 93. 5 minutes from my house. Why this area hasn't been used for a horror movie is beyond me. Many more buildings around than just this one, YouTube will show some history.

    Wow, that's some real estate- but it'd cost beaucoup to clean up.
    There's three films i've looked up , 'Eyes beyond Seeing' 1995 which used Bldg 136/137's interior , and exterior shots of 93, 'Blood Night the legend of Mary Hatchet',2009, a ghost story based on a committal , and 'Peripheral Vision' 2010 , which used Bldg 93 as a location.

    Back in 1991 I was driving a borrowed car between two local cities, there's a now deserted Asylum with a bad rep in between the two. About a half mile before it, I saw a wrecked car with no-one in it, wrapped round a tree with steam coming out. As I passed the asylum gates I saw a figure stood under one of the lamps stand out and look straight at me. I stopped , it was pouring down. He asked for a lift to the next city, as he'd just crashed his car , and needed to get to the Hospital as his wife was expecting a baby. Get in, I said... Well , we were driving along, pitch dark night only lit by lightning flashes, when he asked me the twilight zone question -'aren't you afraid? You just picked up someone outside an Asylum, late at night, in a Thunderstorm!' . I thought about it, and replied 'aren't you? You got in...' We both laughed ..
