today i learned – mon 16th apr 2018

do you like piercings? … do you also like pirates? 🤔 well, you’ve come to the right place 😜

today we’re combining the two with a dab of superstition 🙌🏻

#tdil pirates thought wearing an earring could fix bad eyesight 👀

i literally love some superstitions from a time gone by 😂 … this one is certainly one of my faves 🙈 it deffo explains why i have good eyes 😏 looks like the five earrings of my youth did me good 😜

anyway, the reason for the eye-hole fixing ability of earrings was apparently that the precious metals used possessed magical powers that could heal bad eyesight … move over specsavers 😏

that’s not even the only magical power that pirates thought earrings had! they also thought that earrings prevented seasickness (because magic) and that dudes wearing earrings wouldn’t drown … like, literally couldn’t 🙈

and that’s us done! this was a super quick one today … but i thought it was cool haha 😅 hopefully you enjoyed it! 😁

laters 😘 #tdil
