A Pirate's Revenge on MINISTRY
This post is not going to debate the pros and cons of piracy. We'll save that for another time. This is just about a funny story involving piracy. If you happen to be looking for Ministry's discrography on the Pirate Bay (we assume you can find the link yourselves) and land on rovhal_knullare's post, there is an amazing description to go with the torrent, chronicling just why the original uploader decided to put everything online for free.

What can I say?
True story, I used to own a nightclub, and one night Al Jourgensen was supposed to perform, so I went to the airport to pick him up before the show. So I'm standing there at the gate waiting for the plane to arrive (this was before 9/11) and as I'm standing there waiting, a bunch of cops show up. When the plane rolls up to the ramp, the cops go running down and board the aircraft. I'm thinking to myself, this can't be good, right…So they come off the plane dragging Al Jourgensen, who was screaming that he would kill these fucken cops and whatnot. Turns out, he had insisted on smoking on the plane and when told to put out the cigarette, he told them he'd blow up the plane if they didn't leave him alone and let him smoke. So I begged the cops to let Al come perform, it was two sold out shows. The cops let me take him after I promised to deliver him back to them when the show was done (which I never did of course). Well, Al couldn't perform at the show, was screaming the entire time, throwing full Coronas into the audience (his rider stated he was to have a full case of cold Corona beer on stage). He kept screaming MINISTRY IS DEAD over and over. As it turns out, when he saw the cops coming onto the plane for him, he ate a bunch of LSD he had in his pocket, and thus was WAY TOO HIGH to perform the shows.
I ended up losing a bunch of money from people who walked out and wanted refunds.
So Al, this is my way to make it up to you.
You can't argue with this guy's logic right? Also, go Al for not only being ballsy enough to carry LSD on an airplane, but to also proceed to break the law while in possession of drugs. Rock stars rule!
