    It is a sad day for pirates everywhere when several of them cannot even take over a boat laden with middle age drunks fresh off the congo line. Seriously what is the world coming to.
    Did Everquest teach you that?

      You could at least link to the sonic weapon they used to deter the pirates which was on /. earlier today:

        I was going to say...pirates still exist. USCG deals with them and drug runners on a daily basis.

          They had RPGs and machine guns and they did only minor damage? Pirates aren't what they used to be.

              Neither are pirate ships. Where was the Jolly Roger?

                  Not all USCG members get to have that much fun, ecpespecilly if your USCG Flotilla is in Colorado.

                    I know. I meant to say that branch of the Navy deals with them every day.
                    Coasties DO need more people though. Currently I think the entire force is what? 1/2 the size of NYC's Port Authority?

                    I am sure Bouy Tenders get to board less than Cutters, so fourth.
