Questions We Know The Answer To

BBC News - Q&A: What do you do with a captured pirate?

No - Apparently that isn't what you do these days....

Well we knew the answer until 31st July 1998, when piracy and high treason stopped being capital offences. I do believe there are "times of exceptional circumstances" when the hemp rope can be used again though....
In the meantime there's always the Russian Navy and high-speed lead poisoning.
