How to change your Facebook News Feed into a Log o' Adventures
You can log-in to your Facebook account and change the default language to English (Pirate) and all of your settings and sections of the social networking site will be in pirate speak.

Here's how you do it... Go to Your settings at the top right of your browser, select Settings, Click Language, In the section "What language do you want to use Facebook in?" click edit and change it to English (Pirate). It will change the Home button to "Home Port," messages will now be "Bottle o' Messages," and if a friend changes their profile picture, it will say "Avast ye, (insert friend's name here) has a newly spied litany potrait for ye to rest ye eys upon."
Minutes will show up as "shots o' rum" and hours will show up as "turns o'the hourglass."
Once you get your pirate fill and you're ready to change back, just go back to your settings and change the language to back to your default language of choice and everything will return back to normal.
