  1. Watch out pirates.

    You can row fast, but not as fast as a 25mm round, so you’ll only be turned into chopped meat tired.

    1. T,

      I’ve read that arming merchant ships would be bad because, as best I understand the argument, it would kill more pirates.

      It’s like bizarro-world when pirates have to be treated with kid gloves instead of hanged. Is there a different planet I can live on where sh!t makes more sense?
