I made this just for fun...
The reason pirates wore eye patches was so that one eye would always be adjusted to the dark. That way they didn't have to wait for the eye to acclimate to the low light levels when they went below decks.
wat is this I don't even.
Thanks for the info, Professor Dr. Scientist!
But... What about the wooden legs in stereotypical pirates?
I don't know. I guess they fought a lot and that was the most advanced prosthesis they had available to them.
tell me why they look like scvmbagz?
