Like, well, everyone, I have a crush on Captain Jack Sparrow. Not so much Johnny Depp, who is a fine actor and surely a fine person, but is otherwise just some guy. His character, however, makes me think I was born in the wrong century. Except for being a selfish, narcissistic, violent criminal, (oh, and fictional...though in light of the aforementioned qualities, that might be a plus, on balance) he's sort of my ideal man. Imagine my delight to read that archaeologists believe that 18th century pirates of the Caribbean had a fascination for fine pottery!
I feel like I did when I learned that the Enterprise-D has a ceramics studio.
