Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
Crap, the latter portion of this franchise was a lot smarter than I thought it was…
There’s so much people don’t get about this franchise, the story is really more complex than just “funny drunken pirate meets hottie lady and hottie man with occasional visits from squid man”.
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
This is so important!
Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.
Friendly reminder that these three dorks are “the scary doctors”

I HOPE THATS SARCASM BECAUSE ELEVEN WASNT HALF AS SCARY NINE
Nine’s not scary.
He’s traumatized, damaged and full of anger but he’s not one of the scary doctors. I think as a rule the more goofy the doctor the scarier he is deep down so Two, Seven and Eleven, and maybe Four, are probably the ones I’d count as scary.
#the thing that makes these incarnations scary is the fact they hide it so well#one minute they’re children and clowning around#the next they have that dangerous glint and they talk a dalek into blowing itself up#nine’s ‘scary’ factor was purely on the surface#he wore it as a shield#but watch how he interacts with rose#he opens up and connects with her#these ones hold their companions at arms length and you never get that deep with them#until they switch from goofy to dangerous in .05 seconds
If you count Four, you should probably also count Eight in the second half of his run, but yeah. See above.
