Pirates are not cool

Disney probably wasn't the first media outlet to glamorize pirates, but if you sail in some parts of the world you need to consider the fact that pirates really exist and they are nothing like the characters you see in popular movies.

CNN is reporting that pirates have captured a family that was vacationing on their yacht - which ran out of gas - and taken them into the hills of Somalia.

I hope the family is safe, but I also share this story with you as a warning. If you're going to cruise around countries like Somalia, it's probably a good idea to make sure you take the proper precautions such as having enough gas to get to the next port.

This story could have went a different way entirely - it seems truly amazing that these lucky souls were safe.
