    Off “a” production line I’d accept if there are enough production lines. Off “the” production line?; not possible under any circumstances.

    Yes ladies can be strong enough to lead men and be a pirate Queen.

    So the famous “Mistress Ching” from “At World’s End” was real?

    Beats Anne Bonny and Mary Read hollow.

    Omit the article altogether… Off production lines. However, I believe the plural was implied, therefore the definite article is more appropriate than the indefinite.
    Whether you accept it or not, one would never use the indefinite article to denote a plural quantity.

    Must have been small ships with only 20 crew.

    Re: Candle Fish. As a kid was told drying a “cat tail” of a reed worked. All I got for my trouble was a smoky mess.

    I wonder how many of those cars would be recalled?

    I’m surprised that Walmart hasn’t already imported these cars and sold them in the United States.

    If Walmart did that, they would probably put the Big Three out of business like they have already done to many other American businesses.

    Do you suppose she was called a pilate?

    Oh yes, she was real. I looked up female pirates and read about her a Month ago. She was a Prostitute when a Pirate captain proposed to her. She agreed, on the terms that he let her help run his ship. When he was killed, during a raid, she took over command.
    At that point Ching Shih let the second in command handle the sailing, while she began plotting and planning everything. It took a long time for her to build up to that 1000 ships, all armed with fierce and loyal cutthroats. By that time she was so powerful, nothing moved on the South China Sea unless she said so. The governments of the time had failed to stop her for well over a decade. Finally they gave up and offered complete amnesty if she stopped.
    She retired the Richest woman alive and then married her second in command. The same second in command her former husband had before. In the words of a famous radio personality, “And now you know, the rest of the story.” =)

    You don’t have to dry them, but you do need to pick them when the head is brown and full of white fiber. Soak them in a little lighter fluid and they act just like a wick. =)
