Alexander McCall Smith has several novels out called the Scotland Street series.
One of the characters in the books is a quirky anthropologist who goes to the Malacca Straits to study the economic structure of contemporary pirate culture.
I wanna do that.

Happy be-layed 'International Talk Like a Pirate Day' everybody. It was September 19th.
Remember, it is talk like a pirate, and not act like a pirate.
In honor of the day, I will be bringing it up in my classes this week. Specifically, how to recognize pirates in the archaeological record.
Yo ho ho....and a bottle of.... Dead Guy Ale (from Rogue Brewery in Oregon).
Bob (a.k.a. Dreaded Pirate Flint Roberts...my official pirate name bestowed upon me from some pirate web site).
