Not So Cliffie Trivia

During its debut 2000 season, the island location used for TV’s Survivor was a staging post for modern-day pirates. These pirates, with high-tech speedboats, used the remote island for international black marketeering. In retaliation for the invasion of their privacy by the Hollywood crew, several bad guys one day chased the show’s creator, Mark Burnett, in their speedboat. Burnett later said he feared he would be killed. No such luck.

One middle school boy I worked with loved pirates - of the Pirates of the Caribbean mold. He wanted to know if there were still pirates today. Oh, dear, not like you'd like them.

I watched it one time when it first started and never again. Elisabeth the Twit's claim to fame is that she was on Survivor before she was foolishly put on The View.

FP, there are pirates (off Somalia) and then there are pirates (hackers).

I watched Survivor: Africa because I had a wee bit of a crush on Ethan.
Haven't seen it since, although if Ethan ever comes back........?
