Pirates!

Part of me (the inner child still fighting hard to get out) really wants to drop out of grad school and take up piracy...if only because these guys were so ineffective. I don't think they even had a proper flag [Smile]

...or eyepatches, cannons, parrots (even dead ones nailed to perches), proper vocabulary or the all-important cutlasses!

These were no Pirates...

Pirates are not so much fun when they are killing and raping and plundering. I'm still not quite sure how they got romanticized. I guess the same way that mob figures are.

Yarg.

Another Link

Probably a better telling of the story here. I never would have considered a cruise off the coast of Somalia for a vacation anyway...I wonder what the draw is beyond the adventure on the high seas!?

Why couldn't they have timed this for "Talk like a Pirate" Day (sept. 19)?

Does the sonic weapon make a "tick-tock" noise?

Apparently it's just a really loud smoke alarm.

Makers of the device compare its shrill tone to that of smoke detectors, only much louder.
