I dare you to find a cooler father than Steve Kuhl, who built this pirate ship bedroom for his six year old son. If this doesn't add value to their Minnesota house, nothing will. Not even a gold-plated Jacuzzi.
The odd mess in this photo is a copper-alloy sword guard discovered in a shipwreck which is believed to be Queen Anne's Revenge. Yes, that was the name of Pirate Blackbeard's ship—and yes, this could be his sword.

The Pirate Bay bittorrent trackers are on trial today in Stockholm. The reports have been interesting:
Yesterday, NBC jumped aboard Starship Zune after its protracted breakup with iTunes. It's clear why—and going with NBC's pricing was only part of it. Saul at the NYTimes says that Microsoft has agreed to develop a copyright filter that would block pirated content from being played on Zunes. Which is exactly what NBC…
Japanese internet service providers plan on disconnecting evil filesharing pirates in some of the most severe anti-p2p tactics worldwide.
