Pirates get one seat in Paaaarrrrrghliment

Ninjas actually have 20 seats, you just can't see them.

A bunch of my friends back in Hampton just went to the Blackbeard Pirate Festival this weekend so this topic has been reintroduced into my life.

if i read that right, the pirates mistook a "fighting vessel" for a "merchant ship." that has to be worth more than just one point for ninjas.

Once the pirates realized their stupid mistake, they got off the ship and back in their little boats, evading the military vessel for an hour before about half their number were finally caught. They gain some points back for that, but since it's only the French military it isn't much.

Nonononononono... those aren't REAL pirates.

I bet not a one of them had a peg led, hook for a hand, patch over their eye or once said "Arg!"

Somalian pirates are wannabes, not a true representation.

It's like saying anyone with a black jumpsuit walking around with a foam sword is a ninja... we don't do that to your side, don't do it to ours!

If they're not real pirates then you wouldn't mind proving it by going over there and sailing around the area for a few days.

They aren't pirates. They are opportunists.

How would that prove anything? That's like saying to prove someone isn't a ninja be having them assassinate you. The odds of it happening to you are so slim, it would only prove me right. It's not like everyone sailing over there is attacked after all.

Plus, I don't see any of their stuff on the torrent sites.

Pirates are opportunists. These guys are opportunists. Therefore, these guys = pirates.

Well, they *are* pirates, but if you want to make a distinction between classic fantasy pirates that you find cool and modern pirates that you don't, then no argument from me.
