Betting on Somali Pirates

Apparently there’s a buy in option to get on a private exchange and bet on pirates in Somalia. How do you do it? I don’t fucking know, but apparently it’s a thing.

People are saying there’s over 70 ‘companies’ to place bets on. Sort of like betting on an incorporated merchant vessel to fund their business ‘venture’.


Anyways, I find it funny that today is the same as yesterday with a few words rearranged.

What I mean is, Somali Pirates are basically violent revolutionaries and betting money on them is equivalent to American Revolutionaries being funded and recognized by France.

In Closing,

Yea, you weren’t ready for that one.

Don’t worry, I wasn’t either.

But it’s not all that wild to think that someone would place bets on someone else’s hopes and dreams.

Even if those hopes and dreams are becoming a Pirate or a Violent Revolutionary.

It’s like betting on horses, but with people.

A Sporting game.

That’s Life, baby.
