We went out to "Pirates of the Carribean" finally last night.
You know what I'm thinking?
Will Turner's dad has been rotting away as a living skeleton at the bottom of the ocean for years now, and suddenly he's just been crushed to death.
--The pirates sent him to the bottom of Davy Jones's locker with a weight attached to his bootstraps.
--He had to have taken one of the gold pieces, in order to pass it to his son.
--His blood was necessary to release the curse.
--Thus he was one of the undead.
