If everyone was a pirate, being a pirate wouldn't be special.

Ninjas are sissies. They have to sneak around to kill anyone. A pirate, on the other hand, will tell you straight up he's gonna kill you.

Exactly. They are like passive-aggressive samurai - but lacking in honor altogether.

I feel like the whole pirate thing is becoming less amusing with the news stories about real pirates of the coast of Somalia.

I have a theory that if a cargo/tanker ship was sailed by a mercenary force of former spec war operators with experience in a maritime environment and given a free fire zone to eradicate pirates, they could have this whole pirate thing cleaned up pretty quickly. Dogging behind the cargo/tanker could be a diesel boat (and by boat I mean submarine) watching the cargo/tanker's six and remove the mother duck launching the rubber ducks.

It could be called Operation Following Sea.

(I read too much Marcinko and McNabb.)

Bushido is overrated. Pinoy will just gank you over the head w/ a brick when your back is turned. Aint no Jedi in a street melee.

Jedi in street melee still have the force. BTW, I thought Order 66 was BS. No way a lot of those Jedi wouldnt have survived.

Disagreement. How you gonna use the Force if someone puts one in your brainpan from behind? I buy Order 66, Rothlisberger isn't going to expect his entire O line plus receivers to jump him after the snap.

Not like they'd be able to steal an Olympic medal from me or anything.
