Hah! At first I thought your account was compromised by a spam-bot! Turns out it was only compromised by pirates.

that put a smile on my face :)

my brother ( and 666's brother ) aka FBunny, is actually a merchant mariner. you know, on cargo ships. anyway, he has plied those waters more than a few times on various cargo ships. their drills for repelling pirates can be rather humorous.

the one interesting tidbit that news articles never mention is why pirates are so successful in boarding cargo ships... merchant men and cargo ships are forbidden by international law from carrying weapons of any sort, so all cargo ships are nothing more than big fat defenseless targets. yo ho ho and a bottle of rum me maties!
