    But instead of sabers and canons, they now use guns and RPGs.

    Are you kidding ... you ought to hear the shippers in HK talk about pirates. It's a great business. E.g., out of Malaysia, you will regularly have tankers carrying $150 - 200 million worth of oil, and 7 crewmen. Pirates board, make them an offer of either (1) $1 million each, and disappear forever; or behind door #2 (2) death. Most ships are being satellite tracked now, but it still happens. For pleasure boats (we have a lot of friends who sail long distances) there are smaller operations that go for these boats, usually killing everyone aboard. The Philippines are the most dangerous waters for small boat piracy. Unfortunately, they have some of the nicest islands to visit. It's a big big problem in the South China Sea.
  6. RPG's? What, they sit them down and bore them to death at gunpoint?...wait, rocket propelled grenades...nevermind.

    disney is making a sequel, no?
  9. Carnival Cruise Lines win. You oughta see what they are charging to house the NOPD in a stationary boat....true piracy (here's a hint...it's about 1 million more per week than the boat would generate if it were cruising with tourists). Sorry to get off topic.

    ''Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer refused to rule out the possibility that attackers deliberately targeted the US-owned ship in an act of terrorism.''

    What a wanker... Haha, sure is a 'downer'.
  11. as a pirate, I do not condone these actions of my fellow buccaneers.

    Disney is making two sequels. The one coming out next July is "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". The third in the series may not be named yet, but as I understand it, the thrid is being filmed the same time as the second.

    my original comment to this involved a pun on that title that i deemd too racy, so i will now only respond with, "that is interesting," and proceed to scratch my chin in a manner that signifies interest. :)

    Man, that went over my head! Being as I will be on Carnival Liberty for a cruise tomorrow, I guess I am daffy trying to figure out if my black belt in karate will come in handy when and if pirates attack. I just hope if they do, they'll look like Capt Jack Sparrow. :hyper:

    You know... we all fight over what is better... ninja or pirate... of course smart folks all ready know that pirate could kick ninja's tight little arse but some of us still believe otherwise...

    To both sides i will say this... think how unstopable ninjapirates would be... there is nothing that can stop a ninjapirate... they are unstopable hance the name: "unstopable ninjapirates". Ever think about that? Ninjapirates man... thats where its at!
  17. I concur.
