So now the pirates' employer is looking at this as an unsuccessful business venture. The failed attempt did not produce any ransom payment, meaning a "loss of Revenue", resulting in a "negative Cash Flow" and "zero Return on Investment". But as with any entrepreneurial venture, there is always a risk involved. So to Farah, the pirate leader, all I can say is : "SORRY!!!" I like the Russian method of "Catch and Release", wherein the pirates are ultimately released, put on an inflatable boat without any navigational instruments, and left on their own. It is also interesting to note that the inflatable boat had a leak. To nature conservationists and oceanic experts, this appears to be a novel method of reversing the world's dwindling shark population.
