Sure. No one mentions the good stuff, the glue of humanity, because nice events don't make good storytelling. Ya need adventure, backstabbing, robbery rapine roguery to make history.

'Roguery' is indeed a word. So there.

Indeed, a very good word. Although I'm even more partial to "skullduggery".

It's my Pirato-American heritage, I'm sure.

Wolf as Johnny Depp. Hmmm. *Squint of eye, twist of lip.* Perhaps Keith Richards?

Bill Gates?

Re: Pirato-American
Any of the above sounds good to me. Though being Keith for even a day would probably kill me.
