On Expectations Met

For the first time in 200 years a U.S.-flagged cargo vessel has been captured by pirates.

As if to say, "You do not know who you are messing with," the crew remutinied and took back the ship.

Granted, the captain remains stranded with the pirates drifting in a lifeboat, but I think we may have the upper hand in that scenario. Why are we so fuckin badass? Is it just something that happens whenever the world starts to think we are not, in fact, badass? Is it some inverse square law for American Awesome? Some bizarre Washington's Law?

I say they try us again, with ninjas, because apparently Americans beat pirates.
