The BBC : Killings by pirates on the rise || kuro5hin.org: “Many people do not realize that piracy is still a threat to modern maritime business. Indeed, the era of great wooden ships is over, but powerful and dangerous pirates, or privateers, as some prefer to be called, still ply the coastal seas, especially in Africa , the Carribbean, and the Indonesian Archipelago.”

Arrr. Somehow, next to an article about real pirates killing real people, the Google Ads for amusing pirate fancy dress costumes don’t seem so appropriate.
