Ship Crew Repels Pirates by Pouring Hot Oil and Water on Them

"Sailors in the Philippines sea have fought off a pirate attack using medieval siege defence methods, hurling boiling water mixed with oil at the assailants until reinforcements arrived, Australia’s ABC network reported."

You can never go wrong with boiling oil. Could have used to for some Greek fire, too, if they had pipes. Great story, I thought, opens up so many new possibilities in the fight with piracy.
