More evidence of the pirates – temperature relationship

Published April 4th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

The evidence for the relationship between pirates and global temperature continues to mount.

CNN reports, “The International Maritime Bureau, which tracks piracy, said in its annual report earlier this year that global pirate attacks rose by 10 percent in 2007, marking the first increase in three years. ”


Then, BBC News reports “Global Temperatures to decrease“.

The mainstream media may ignore the pirate-temperature link that Pastafarians have long known, but soon the evidence will be so overwhelming that they cannot ignore the Truth.

Further evidence: Google Trends shows a very solid relationship.


That screenshot is remarkable and 100% legit – not doctored. You can try it yourself here.

Congrats to Pastafarians Oliver and Adrian for spotting the CNN/BBC evidence.

    Now, now, it’s not called “global warming” anymore, it’s called “climate change”. That way, people can freak out about the weather, no matter if it’s warming *or* cooling down.

    But really, just how the “oncoming ice age” of the 1970’s was scared off by the arrival of “STAR WARS” (the movies, not the missile defence system) , or how the ozone layer is directly influenced by Vanilla Ice’s popularity (so with any luck, we’re safe for now) , I’d say that with the growing interest in pirates (digital ones count as well, I think) , the Earth’s climate will be safe from harm for at least another generation.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
