We all have that friend who wants to grow up to be a pirate someday. Well, maybe you don't, but I do, and the good news for him is that this path still seems to be a viable career option. On Saturday, pirates off the coast of Kenya pulled in their biggest ever haul of booty. In some ways it is astounding that actual piracy still exists in our modern world, but with potential returns like these it makes sense. As ridiculous as my mental image of a swashbuckling Johnny Depp swooping onto a Saudi oil tanker may be, this line of work might appeal to those of us struggling to find traditional employment due to the economic downturn.
