Writer's Block: The Only True Question:
If you could go back and fix your most regrettable decision, what would it be, and what would you do differently? Or: Pirates or Ninjas?
Pirates, if only because I don't know much about ninjas. Swaggering, pillaging, boisterous pirates, who have no qualms about thieving and looting and generally causing havoc, but who will refrain from rape because that's, to put it mildly, not fun for anyone.
Contemporary pirates are not nearly as exciting, of course, because real-life theft isn't really joke-worthy. Also, with modern hygiene and nutrition, that scurvy-licious scruff factor isn't there, and that's half the fun, yeah?
This post brought to you by fond recollections of Johnny Depp in dreads, and a childhood empathy for Captain Hook.
