According to the BBC, piracy is on the rise in the South Seas:
Indonesia suffered 50 attacks, although the figure was lower than the 64 reported in the first half of last year. “It was also the location where the greatest violence was experienced, with many of the pirates armed with guns and knives,” the IMB said.
The question is, did the pirates have their knives between their teeth?
Seriously though, this is terrible. I blame Disney.
UPDATE: For a real serious take on it, Kuro5hin has more details.
