  • The Captain's Version: cs-tv.org/tv/video-3YFeE1eDlD0.html

    • @Mike Mikel Yes

    • Make how to be a pirate crewman edition

    • could you make video on biggest army in the world please reply

    • CGP Grey - do white lives matter?

    • What do you think of Transhumanism? I wanted to ask this on a video that was more relevant to the topic (e.g. Why Die, Human's Need Not Apply, or Digital Aristotle), but figured you might be paying more attention to a video with more recent activity. It seems like you're more or less on board for a lot of the philosophy based on the aforementioned videos, but it would be interested to hear your thoughts on that, if you have any, particularly as it relates to environmental conservation. Thank you! Love your content.

  • The captain is remembered while the quarter master is informative

  • Can you put a link to what you use to draw in your next video please

  • *The stick figure and captain when the quartermaster doesn’t say booty:* “That wasn’t very cash money of you.”

  • So does that mean the carpenter would get 2.5 shares?

  • Why did a bother going to university and getting a degree? I'll just be a pirate. Maybe even graduate to Gay Pirate Assassin. (Kudos if you get the reference)

  • Where is the family genetics explained video?

  • so youre saying pirate ships are anarcho-communist

  • Can you do a few videos on New Zealand history!?

  • Can we get the rest of the reservations series?

  • 0:54 Motion we chose, but the sum of forces upon us.

  • "Minimum wage? What's that?" ~the crew, probably

  • Grey, do you have another crowdfunding option? I'm not a huge fan of Patreon especially since I've heard rumors of them hosting cp on their website.

  • Dang it im stuck in a loop of the two videos now

  • Wait, if a captain gets replaced part way through, who gets 2 shares, the old captain or the new captain?

  • How to be captain forever (until you die) 1: fight.

  • How to be a pirate: digital edition, next

  • I think you are secretly xkcd

  • Really expected this to turn into a "Digital piracy is bad mmmkay video."

  • Are you a robot

  • The concept of "personality matrix" is an intriguing topic - any good books or authors on that? I've come across it in Games People play, Celestine Prophecy, Choice Theory and DiSC, though seems like it is ripe for research

  • 'which genetics?' 'sorry, after the nazis, eugenics and pseudo-scientific production and use of genetics correlated to race, research in this field will be clogged forever, so i can't give you an answer but the biological paradigma of genetics+environment = you, though most people like to slide past the genetics part, for the reasons above'. That would be tooo long, 'no matter' is much more incisive.

    • He says “what’s genetics,” not “which genetics.”

  • About that Reservation series...

  • pirates:attack the Brits Britian:um

  • Yep, you definitely watched Black Sails.

  • What about the living conditions

  • pirates: pioneering democracy and healthcare

  • what an excellent video! your voice acting and writing style on both is really compelling.

  • next video

  • I suddenly want to watch a movie or series that's essentially about this

  • Life was short back then so piracy would have been a smart decision

  • So what’s your traits, Um I’m 56% Yarrrr and 44% aggression Your hired

  • Booty B Licious arg arg arg.

  • Can you pls make a portuguese subtitles i know a lot of brazilians that like your fontent even youtubers and i wanted to show that to my family but... i'm the only member that knows english and learning a language at a high age is dificult

  • I love at 5:33, the most emotional the Quartermaster gets: "To make money. [beat] A lot of money, for all of us." And even a hint of a smile on the stoic, all business Quartermaster.

  • hA UwU

  • Do pirates attack each other? For example if a pirate ship sees another pirate ship and try to service them but it turns out the other ship is also a pirate ship Do they just leave each other alone or what?

  • I ws more convinced by the quarter master

  • Captain: Chaotic evil Quartermaster: "Lawful" neutral

  • So what you are saying is that pirates were the first anarcho-capitalists?

  • I'd be curious to know how they get a pirate ship in the first place and how that affects the distribution of plunder. Do a bunch of people pool funds to buy a ship? Does someone own it at the start and then get compensated with a greater share of the loot in exchange for the use of their ship?

  • So communism ships? Let me call uncle sam

  • Hey, once again a very nice video. But you explained a couple of points that only work for pirates who are only pirates, and not privateers or freebooters like Sir John Hawkins and Sir Francis Drake. For example they could sail into British Harbours and it was actually the New World that needed a lot of "persuasion" for them to be able to repair their ships in their harbours, since allmost all the colonies at the time of Drake were either Spanish or Portuguese.

  • stonks

  • Can we get a video on how to become a real life Knight Templar.

  • Aaaand now i need to rewatch Black Sails again 🏴‍☠️

  • all of the quartermasters and accountants look bored out of their minds

  • could you make video on biggest army in the world please reply

  • when ur playing as a pirate republic in EUIV against human players. "no guys my people are just into more risk taking. We're just more ambitious merchants!" D:

  • 0:34

  • Be Somalian

  • pirates has no boss, corsairs has a one, but at the end both are equal to mercenaries.

  • Gonna sound like a total weeb here but the quartermaster reminds me of Kyoya from ouran high school host club

  • Legends have it that he'd like to hear it from the captain till this day.

  • "No", said Luffy.

  • I enjoyed both of these looks into what pirates were realistically. IF you look at the most "notorious", successful pirates in history, you can see how they made great use of branding to get what they wanted. For example, Captain Edward Teach (infamously known as Blackbeard) wasn't nearly the monster at heart that his reputation with the authorities knew him as. Otherwise, why would people chose to sail with him if he was always such a cruel, violent individual? Even if he were, his crew would likely rise up and clearly that didn't happen as he held the position of Captain for a very long time (considering the average tenure of a pirate in that era). No, Teach was fair to his crew and those loyal to him. To his enemy's he was a showman, putting cannon fuses in his beard, stringing people up to make horrifying displays and putting on an act of an unhinged, possibly demon-possessed, violent individual so that those who survived the encounter (and I'm sure he never gave orders to leave no survivors) ran terrified to their home ports telling of a demon that sails the seas, cruelly torturing and killing everyone that dares stand against him. This was all part of Teach's brand; as when those who have heard of him find the Queen Anne's Revenge coming up to them, they are far more likely to surrender in hopes that the demon that commands the ship will be merciful. I don't remember clearly, but I think Teach also outfitted the Queen Anne's Revenge to be unmistakable to anyone observing it. He wanted anyone who saw the ship to know without a doubt: Blackbeard's coming, be ye prepared?

  • Glorious!

  • “Working 9 to 5 on a ship of the Empire, for minimum wage. Staying out of Trouble and saving for retirement, as Banal days pass eroding the dreams and aspirations of your younger self leaving you at the end to wonder how it all slipped away...”

  • I would like to make 100k a year making videos about books I read

  • 1:28 THE BEE

  • When the captain hold the sign “ask me about branding”

  • Carpenter Edition when?

  • Like to activate.

  • Wow

  • Grey, you ever do a Africa related narration thing

  • "Don't lie who's been a fan of CGP Grey for more than a day" (He just commented on my newest video omg)

  • Hmm I'd like to hear from the crew

  • amazing series

  • I CAN'T STOP WATCHING THIS HELP ME

  • so who owns the ship?

  • Can we get an opinion from a crewman

  • This is way better than the captain version.

  • i mean im down

  • Can you do one for the people being pirated? You touched on it but there has to be more to it than you talked about.

  • SO does he become a pirate or not?

  • Step 1. Install Utorrent Step 2. Go onto the pirate bay Step 3. Profit

  • Would you please make a video on how vote by mail fraud is detected? Since the US has about 7000 nukes it would be for the good of humanity to put conspiracy theories to rest. Most people do not know about very cheap and easy to implement methods like unique, barcoded numbers assigned to each voter, etc.

  • I like how went from upbeat to monotone

  • Make a vid on the parts of the ship

  • Pirates in the Caribbean: We are a business. Vitalian Brothers: Let's start a war with every nation in the baltic sea! Barbaresks: Hold my bear! (founding states for centuries and be the nightmare of every mediteranian nation and later the USA).
