I can add the References header, but I-R-T has a different meaning, so
I shouldn't add that. [I don't know which message it's a reply to,

derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But
the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer
to achieve immortality by not dying.
