Just what you need to liven up one of those dull cruises.

Interesting world we live it?!
I'll take that kind of action over any ballroom dance night.
Of course I am glad that no one was seriously hurt.
That must have been scary.
"Attention all passengers, this is your captain speaking, unfortunately we are being attacked by somalian pirates, they are shooting rockets and guns at our ship, but do no worry, everything is under control"
(didnt RTFA) were there ninjas on board? i always thought pirates won...
Stupid pirates don't win. And these were stupid pirates.
Without reading the article, I'm just gonna guess what this story is about (because that's more fun).
Did the staff and crew on board the cruise ship stop a group of Somalian passengers from downloading mp3s from a p2p network?
Oh, these are ACTUAL pirates, not just the crappy name given to people who download music illegally. Okay.
"And, finally, the people at Seabourn Cruises will be giving some consideration to offering a 10 percent rebate on the price all customers paid for this trip. We hope that each of you will be joining us again on further action-packed adventures."
Attention on Deck.
Attention on Deck.
The forward machine gun is now available for use. Passengers who are interested in trying out their marksmanship please report to the purser on the Promenade deck.
Additionally, we have LAW and other short range munitions available on the Flying Bridge. Passengers who are interested in trying to vaporize a real authentic pirate, please report to the purser on the Promenade deck.
That is all.
I wonder what other kinds of anti-pirate stuff they got on those ships... I mean, the loud noise thing is pretty lame... they should have like a vat of giant squids to release off the bow or something.
Lol, but why not penguins???
there stupid to be scaried off from sounds, or cowards(i bet cowards)
I wonder if they looked like this
Hmm, I forgot about the "cowardice" thing. Now they need a song. What was it the lion sang in Wizard of Oz?
They got Michael Winslow.
Or just change their name to "Action Cruise Line" and make it an interactive cruise where everyone has to "man their station."
Quite honestly, I think that is a great business idea, although the pirates would be actors and the whole thing would be semi-fake, of course. By "semi-fake," I mean they would still hit you semi-hard, but not in the face or the sack. They also wouldn't shoot you for real, but if you do fight them back with force, they totally have permission to eat their can of spinach and pound you.
I was thinking they could store all the ship sewage in high pressure tanks. So when pirates do come close to boarding, the cruise liner could spray them with the nasty stuff using high-powered nozzles.
Ahhhhh, no, the internet has much love for the ninja. As a pirate, however, I like your version.
I simply love the fact that in 2005 you can still be a pirate.
I like the squids.
Some ships have 9,000-volt electrified fences, but many do not. Some use fire hoses to blast pirates. Unfortunately, it's probably cheaper to have an occasional load of cargo jacked, than it is to outfit a fleet of ships with anti-piracy equipment.
i definitely like the sewage idea... that'd be narsty, no way i'd pirate a cruise ship if i thought there was a chance i could get sludged. Not so great for the environment, but i bet once it got used like 2 or 3 times, the word would get out and pretty much end the era of pirates, leaving ninja's free to do their ninja-ing wherever they please.
one word: paintball
One acronym: CSI
latest news is that they could have been terrorists, not pirates at all.
and an un-exploded grenade is still in the ship.
well all the best with that boys!
