Legal A major setback for those that claim piracy is having an adverse affect on the US economy: the US Government Accountability Office, who was tasked with reviewing the efforts to find out what, if any, impact piracy has on the US economy, has concluded that all of these studies - all of them - are bogus. Better yet - the GAO even goes as far as to say that piracy may have a positive effect on the economy.

I guess this is a bad attempt at a joke. Aside from being not funny, its also extremely distasteful. You're referencing, out of the blue, with no apparent reason or obvious connection to the article, an accident where 29 people tragically died. WTF man?

The reference to the coal mine was not intended as a joke. For that I'm sorry.
It was intended as a place very far underground where it will never see the light of day ever again.
I hope you understand the context of my reference now.
My Great Grandfather was a Miner from South Wales. He lost a leg in a cave around 1901.

Personally, I thought your joke was funny.

I admit to having a terrible sense of humor, though.
