(Btw, if you want to register TalkLikeA.Pirate, which comes with the right to talk like a pirate at any time, not only on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, as well as the inalienable right to fly the Jolly Roger without joining a hacktivist or BitTorrent-defense group, and to abuse the word "arrrrh" at will, you could, theoreticaly. Realistically, you can't; it's taken. By me. Arrr.)
The last best thing about OpenNIC and the .pirate domains is that they allow you to register a pirate domain without having to read or understand any of the nonsense about ICANN and its four-year new-TLD trip to nowhere. You can simply enjoy being a .pirate without any worries about ICANN's Internet superhighway-to-nowhere or the need to preserve your own dignity.
ICANN has plenty of dignity for everyone, and look how far that's gotten us.
