We spent way too much time at the Field Museum today.  The special exhibits included a bug's view, where you were "shrunk" to less than an inch tall and transported underneath the surface of the earth, and a pirate's life, and I don't know about you, but count me in with anything involving pirates.  This particular exhibit showcased the Whydah and documented its transformation from slave ship to pirate ship.  At the end of the display, real pirate booty (treasure!!) was shown.  Obviously, the pirates didn't benefit from any of it, as the ship sunk one evening and all the treasure was lost. 

Well, until the historian found it and shared it with us. 

If you are interested in learning about this, they have a nice website.  It's a neat exhibition.
