2019-08-14 Pirates

One thing I always admired about pirates was the pirate code. The part I care about the most is how booty is shared. For example:

The Captain and Quartermaster to receive two shares of a prize: the master, boatswain, and gunner, one share and a half, and other officers one and quarter.

Just think about this! What if a CEO only ever got twice as much as everybody else? Twice as much was good enough for Captain Bartholomew Roberts!
