Some people change the world for the better; but sometimes the way they do it is unsavory to say the least.
Now games and wagers are the life / Of sailors, pirates, fisher′s wives; / But do beware the yellow eyes, / Don′t bet to serve, your soul, your life / Always beware the yellow eyes.
Let me tell you about the machine behind the world.
