      +Cheshire Cat you would be considered a pirate if you don’t fly a flag I guess.

      Here you go, guys!

      [Bennett, Allyson. “That Sinking Feeling: Stateless Ships, Universal Jurisdiction, and the Drug Trafficking Vessel Interdiction Act.” Yale J. Int’l L. 37 (2012): 433], who says:

      In addition to ships flying flags of convenience, some ships have no nationality at all. Ships without nationality, also called stateless, flagless, or unregistered vessels, undermine the law-of-the-flag regime. Because stateless vessels do not have a flag state, no state can exercise control over them on the high seas or provide diplomatic protection on their behalf. Ships can become stateless in a variety of ways. They may lose their nationality if they violate their flag state’s laws or do not comply with its requirements; their flag state may be unrecognized by the international community; or they may never register with any state. Furthermore, ships that sail under more than one flag, using one or the other according to convenience, are “assimilated” to stateless ships under UNCLOS. Because stateless ships do not enjoy the protection of any state, some countries and scholars have asserted that any state can assert jurisdiction over them. But, as discussed infra, a ship’s statelessness alone may not authorize such actions.

      +Cheshire Cat Not flying a flag (mind you this is a *legal* flag not simply a literal one) would be an unregistered vessel ergo not participating in the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. There seems to some greyness to the matter but basically you would be unprotected by any state authority and therefore are subject to whomever wants to assert their authority over you.

      The Gig. When one megabyte was not enough.
      You gotta have quips to fire back at them. Letting them know they’re bothering you is like blood in the water

    • Megan Saper says:

    • Megan whatsittoya says:

      It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

    • Erik Walker says:

      Fwiw (I find name origins interesting), Meg is Welsh for Margaret, which is similar in spelling to the ancient Greek which means “Pearl.” Which of course represent the beauty and danger of the ocean. Meg, as in megalodon, however, comes from a different word, mega meaning vast. It’s like two movie posters, one saying _”the big,”_ and the other saying _”the Pearl.”_ Megan, being diminutive, means “little Pearl.” As opposed to “big tooth” ?
