    Lucy Lawless and other Greenpeace activists illegally boarded a Shell Oil drilling ship to protest and prevent it from departing

    On Thursday Lucy Lawless, the actress who played Xena, and six other Greenpeace activists illegally boarded a drilling ship leased to Shell Oil off New Zealand's western shore.
    Lawless and the other activists have "occupied" the drillship to prevent it from departing on a "6,000 nautical mile journey from New Zealand to the remote Arctic to start an exploratory oil drilling program that threatens to devastate the Alaskan coastline," Greenpeace spokeswoman Szabina Mozes said.
    Lawless has no idea how many days she and the group will be out to sea. She brought some chocolate and peanuts with her.

    Being literally in the middle of nowhere and illegally on a platform with no friendly witnesses seems like something of a pretty stupid idea.....but what the hey...they had nothing better to do than raise our gas prices.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    Sounds like the very definition of "piracy" to me. They should be treated like the Somali pirates that have been prosecuted recently. Or maybe like the pirates the SEALs "prosecuted" a couple years ago

    So let me get this straight: ^^She^^ threw herself on a ship that's going out to sea on an expedition? Those sailors are some lucky bastards.

    She doesn't quite look like that anymore. But yes. Yes, indeed, I still would...

    Lucy , you got sum splaining to do.
