In six days, September 19, it would be International Talk Tike a Pirate Day
International Talk Tike a Pirate Day is often associated with a terrible, yet mysterious, condition known as Davy Jones Aphasia.
Davy Jones Aphasia is an unusual, yet scientifically accepted, language disorder that compels people to talk like (and sometimes act) as pirates.
Brain altering chemical bombs, Dragon cult’s dreamers, Pastafarians’ holy day, cosmic radiation, mind altering fungus, and climate change have all been speculated causes of Davy Jones Aphasia - Generalissimo would have blamed Kaiser Martens - but there has yet to be a consensus in the world’s medical communities.

September 19, 2010 (Generalissimo Scale real time) was the last great Davy Jones Aphasia outbreak with most nations succumbing. . .
. . . eventually causing an absolute breakdown in international communications.

Doctor Hugo, Procinctia’s predominant investigator of unusual phenomenon, decided another international conference was in order.
If there something was really going to happen on September Nineteenth might be better if the scientific community was a little more proactive this time.
Doctor Hugo, like many Procinctians, liked genre savvy theatrics intentionally hosted the event six day before the possibly impending crisis.
Six days was enough time to be dramatic, but not enough to decisively do anything about it.

Second Davy Jones' Aphasia Conference, Savoonga Municipal School, Savoonga Village
Dr. Hugo, a leading expert on Davy Jones' Aphasia, addresses the conference

“Today the world’s medical community, alongside the popular pirate metal band Alestorm, has gathered in Procinctia to discuss Davy Jones' Aphasia.
Last year, pardon Procinctian year, our world was overtaken by am unexplained condition.
Millions were unable to converse beyond primitive pirate speech followed by a massive breakdown in international communications.
That global has been identified as an affliction now known as Davy Jones' Aphasia.
September Nineteenth is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, a day synonymous with this condition, is upon us.
Every significant outbreak of Davy Jones' Aphasia has taken place approximate to this time.
Some have said another outbreak was inevitable soon. . .
The data wasn’t nearly conclusive enough.
Science’s understanding of the phenomenon was best described as incomplete.
All of the little existing evidence was completely circumstantial.
If there is actually an immediate risk of another Davy Jones' Aphasia outbreak it’s better we have the conference beforehand.
An unnecessary conference is better than some kid finding himself lying dying in a gutter [b]talking like a pirate![/b]
If we encounter a storm of Pirate-induced lunacy, we’ll be ready for it right?
Standing together there’s nothing a unified Scientific community can’t overcome!
[size="7"][b]!For Science![/b][/size]”

An unnamed Arctican representative described a phenomenon that was taking place in Arctica among many groups of students and youth. They have been practicing speaking in a snobby upper-class English accent that will hopefully cancel out the effects of Davy Jones' Aphasia. For them, anyway.

It might actually be possible to fight off of any compulsion to talk like a pirate with sufficient mental preparation.
Why a snobby upper-class English accent?
Would other alternative speech patterns be sufficient?
Is encouraging populations to rehearse alternative exaggerated fake accents viable?”

[quote name='Kaiser Martens' timestamp='1315965785' post='2800086']"What about people who already talk like pirates? Do they talk normally instead on that day?"[/quote]“People who already talk like pirates?” instead of replying intelligently Procinctia’s representative parroted the questions back, “What about people who already talk like pirates? What happens to those who communicate as pirates beforehand when afflicted with Davy Jones' Aphasia? Would they talk normally instead?”

Momentarily agape with uncertainly the wild-haired scientist considered this question but instead of an answer produced yet another question, “Where are we going to find people who already talk like pirates? Is that ordinarily a common demographic anywhere?”

[quote name='Kaiser Martens' timestamp='1316034446' post='2800533']"Yes. In England, if I recall right. On the coastal areas."[/quote]”If this were true it would be exceedingly easy to find the answer.
We just need permission from proper English authorities to observe this population on September Nineteenth.
Is there anywhere else where we can likely find quantities of pirate-speaking peoples?”

September 19th, Second Davy Jones' Aphasia Conference, Savoonga Municipal School, Savoonga Village

Doctor Hugo looked much more disheveled than usual, “Sorry for the delay everyone, we couldn’t start the conference until an hour before September nineteenth.
The United Federation of the East seems to be trying to take over the island, or something.
This minor oversight sets back our schedule, slightly.
Today were going to brainstorm and come up with a dramatic last-minute plan to save the world from tomorrow’s possibly imminent Davy Jones' Aphasia outbreak.
Right now we only have forty-ish minutes until September Nineteenth.
That’s forty-ish minutes to devise an implement whatever come up with, starting. . . now.
Any ideas?”
