The Power of Suggestion

Tonight I am watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.  Want to guess why?

That’s right!  While I was writing yesterday’s post, the quote about the pirate’s code being guidelines rather than rules occurred to me.  Then Mike Coville mentioned it in his comment about the post.  Those two things combined made me realize that I haven’t watched the movie in a while, and the idea of having a little movie night got caught in my brain.

It turned out that (as usual) there wasn’t much on television on a Friday night, so movie it is!

It’s always interesting to think about the human mind and where ideas come from.  Usually they’re hard to trace, especially if the end result has been percolating for a while or combines many experiences and sources, but every once in a while there’s a very clear line from initial spark to final thought.

We’ll end with a fun quote from the movie:

Will: “This is either madness or brilliance.”
Captain Jack: “It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.”

    I love that movie. Knowing where ideas come from can be pretty fun, too, though there’s usually less Captain Barbossa involved. X)

    Um… Pirates is an adult flick. You might want to expand the title a bit.
