Ever wonder how you’re going to pay those pirates that hijack your $250,000,000 supertanker? Drop them $3,000,000 in a parachute from a small plane. Hard to believe but true but they all got away. Here’s the story in the January 10, 2009 New York Times.
Some things never change, IF you believe this:
The pirate named Jama said he was waiting for his share of the ransom. “When the pirates receive the money, they will divide in shares on the spot, so that they will disembark tonight from the ship with everyone’s share in pocket,” he said.

I read 5 of them drowned when their getaway boat capsized? Apparently family members are looking for their bodies (or is that their money).
Is it just me or do you find it very bizarre that in this day and age that we have to worry about pirates of all things?
You heard some of them subsequently drowned, right?
Yeah, too bad. Not! Wonder what’s happening with that share of the ransome.
