Pirates And Math

When it comes to dealing with animals that are preying on shipping off the coast of Somalia in Africa it seems that people from the Civilized World are showing the critical flaws in their countries’ educational system. They fail to understand the basic drives of the predator and/or the scavenger, and are pathetically bad at basic arithmetic as well.

Pirate & Math - It's a simple equation
1 Pirate + 1 Bullet = 1 Less Pirate

Come on people! Even if you can’t get a grasp on the idea of shifting the Risk vs. Reward equation so that it is no longer weighted in favor of the Somali pirates, you should be able to handle a bit of basic math. 😉
