From post 121, I think that maybe the Somali pirates are getting pirated and they need to form an association/union to protect their money from getting stolen along the way. Gosh, it's a tough world.
- - But seriously, all over the world in mostly 3rd world countries generations of people who only know about harvesting a living from "under" the surface of the seas are finding there are fewer and fewer fish
to catch. So they start harvesting a living from what is "on" the seas. Only thing is that as they get a little success in their new endeavors the land-based pirates move in and start siphoning off that harvest.
- - Be it organized crime syndicates or organized governmental entities it isn't long before the new revenue source is depleted back to where it was. Some things never change.
- - Unfortunately, we are the "seafood" that is now getting harvested and you can either be a clam and hide in the sea floor mud or be a great white shark (or somewhere in between) and bite back.
