I never did get around to writing about International Talk Like a Pirate Day yesterday.  Carl Boe, from Berkeley, and I have a long-running joke about pirate-speak stemming from our teaching computing for formal demography using that old swashbuckler standby software — you guessed it — R.  We wanted to reduce the anxiety generated in students who needed to simultaneously learn both the methods of formal demography and steep-learning-curve software by dressing — and talking — as pirates.  We never did do it, but there are always future workshops.  This year, Carl sent me the following amusing picture related to Talk Like a Pirate Day.
