Fact #89

Overview:
In today’s fact we learn about Pirates! Mr. Toes teaches us why some pirates would wear an eye patch..it wasn’t just for good looks!

The Fact a Day:
Some pirates would wear an eye patch so that when they would go from above deck where it was very bright to below deck where it was very dark they could switch the patch to the other eye and be able to see in the dark very quickly since one eye is already adjusted.
