    Default Samuel Hall Lord - Notorious Buccaneer and Murderer (Oligarch too!)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Hall_Lord

    Samuel Hall Lord, also called "Sam Lord" (1778 – 5 November 1844) was one of the most famous buccaneers on the island of Barbados. Sam Lord as he was usually known, amassed great wealth for his castle-mansion in Barbados. He did this through the direct plundering of ships stranded in the coral reefs just off the coast of his estate(UN/LOCODE: BB SLC ). According to legend, Sam Lord would hang lanterns high in the coconut trees around his estate. Passing ships far out at sea would think it was the port city of Bridgetown and would sail towards the reef in the area, leading them to wreck their ships. Sam Lord would then board the ships and keep the riches for his castle that existed in the parish of Saint Philip.[1]

    Looking forward to the Jam Mallows thread






    and the thread on the Buddhist diet.






    Or even a cactus thread.
