Thanks!

The list wrote:1916 - Vivien Signy, nurse

I found that quite amusing. Must've been quite the nurse.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
