There's no question this individual is a seat-of-the-pants risk taker. He chose this situation, and made it out alive.

I can't imagine making these choices. Not my style in a million years. But a win is a win, and this dude seems to have a talent for dodging disaster. So far.

The thing is, he has way better swashbuckling stories to tell than I ever will. I confess this gnaws at me.
