As shanghaiing is kidnapping people to serve as sailors, the title "Shanghai" suggests:

"A high Jack and King" = "hijacking"

    $\begingroup$ @EngineerToast Bozman actually answered 19 seconds earlier... Mouse over the time stamp and it will give you the exact time. $\endgroup$ – mdc32 Feb 19 '15 at 14:54

    $\begingroup$ @mdc32 I had no idea you could do that. I tried going to your profiles to see the answer time and it gave yours as 31 minutes ago and Bozman's as 32 minutes ago. Thanks for the tip! $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Feb 19 '15 at 14:56
