This was very insightful, Grey. I had no clue the quartermaster was so vital to the ship's overall operation.

The economy diagram on 4:18 is wrong. P1 should correspond to Q1 while in your diagram it corresponds with Q2. Same goes for P2 and Q1.

The concept of "personality matrix" is an intriguing topic - any good books or authors on that? I've come across it in Games People play, Celestine Prophecy, Choice Theory and DiSC, though seems like it is ripe for research

'which genetics?' 'sorry, after the nazis, eugenics and pseudo-scientific production and use of genetics correlated to race, research in this field will be clogged forever, so i can't give you an answer but the biological paradigma of genetics+environment = you, though most people like to slide past the genetics part, for the reasons above'. That would be tooo long, 'no matter' is much more incisive.

I love at 5:33, the most emotional the Quartermaster gets: "To make money. [beat] A lot of money, for all of us." And even a hint of a smile on the stoic, all business Quartermaster.

Do pirates attack each other? For example if a pirate ship sees another pirate ship and try to service them but it turns out the other ship is also a pirate ship Do they just leave each other alone or what?

I'd be curious to know how they get a pirate ship in the first place and how that affects the distribution of plunder. Do a bunch of people pool funds to buy a ship? Does someone own it at the start and then get compensated with a greater share of the loot in exchange for the use of their ship?

Hey, once again a very nice video. But you explained a couple of points that only work for pirates who are only pirates, and not privateers or freebooters like Sir John Hawkins and Sir Francis Drake. For example they could sail into British Harbours and it was actually the New World that needed a lot of "persuasion" for them to be able to repair their ships in their harbours, since allmost all the colonies at the time of Drake were either Spanish or Portuguese.

I enjoyed both of these looks into what pirates were realistically. IF you look at the most "notorious", successful pirates in history, you can see how they made great use of branding to get what they wanted. For example, Captain Edward Teach (infamously known as Blackbeard) wasn't nearly the monster at heart that his reputation with the authorities knew him as. Otherwise, why would people chose to sail with him if he was always such a cruel, violent individual? Even if he were, his crew would likely rise up and clearly that didn't happen as he held the position of Captain for a very long time (considering the average tenure of a pirate in that era). No, Teach was fair to his crew and those loyal to him. To his enemy's he was a showman, putting cannon fuses in his beard, stringing people up to make horrifying displays and putting on an act of an unhinged, possibly demon-possessed, violent individual so that those who survived the encounter (and I'm sure he never gave orders to leave no survivors) ran terrified to their home ports telling of a demon that sails the seas, cruelly torturing and killing everyone that dares stand against him. This was all part of Teach's brand; as when those who have heard of him find the Queen Anne's Revenge coming up to them, they are far more likely to surrender in hopes that the demon that commands the ship will be merciful. I don't remember clearly, but I think Teach also outfitted the Queen Anne's Revenge to be unmistakable to anyone observing it. He wanted anyone who saw the ship to know without a doubt: Blackbeard's coming, be ye prepared?
