    You chose to compare Port Royal to Pompeii.. Really????.. Isn't there a more famous and legendary city that that instead of a volcano involves water and sinking and the Wrath of the gods.. Even the Jews wrote an entire yet very fiction drama chapter to this in their book of lies well before Solon and Plato visited Egypt.. Oohh it's just on the tip of me tongue. Ooh what's that pond between Africa, Europe and the America's called again?? They even named a mountain range after that town.. Ooohh damn, what's that name again??!?!

    3:25 "in those days it took up to 2 months to cross the atlantic..." Umm.... depending on what kind of boat your on, (sans 1-3 weeks) it can and does still take about 2 months to cross the Atlantic, given the right time of the year for wind conditions & weather.

    There is a skipping song-chant that I remember from my childhood. 2 bits 4 bits 6 bits a dollar. There were various lines after that, mostly invented on the spot, but it's interesting to find out where the local idioms came from.

    The girls mostly used the next line " I charge 16 bits to make you holler " it's hilarious that they were saying that you can sleep with me for 2 dollars without even understanding the words coming out of their mouths.

    Well it definitely should not come as a Surprise that The Creator of ALL things would destroy Abomination, which this Area was not only full of, but they were boasting in their Obscenity. They set themselves up for Destruction even on the Foundation they set their Abomination on Matthew 7:26-27 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and DOETH THEM NOT, shall be likened unto a FOOLISH MAN, which built his house upon the "SAND": And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and GREAT was the Fall of it. John 11:25-26 Yahushua said unto her, I AM the RESURRECTION, and the LIFE: he that "believeth" in ME, though he were DEAD, yet shall he LIVE: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me SHALL NEVER DIE. Believest thou this?
