Yesterday, I was watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean and I got to thinking...this movie made pirates cool, but at the time pirates were about as cool as bank robbers. Somehow over time they've gained a cult status.I can just see some little boys outside playing pirates back then, and their mothers calling them in and saying they shouldn't be such foul creatures.
Pirates aren't the only ones that have fallen into that trap. Indians, assassins, ninjas, etc. have all become sexy fantasies for people. Amazing what can happen over time. Just think in a couple hundred years, terrorists may be cool!
good thing I'll be long gone by then
