The side effects of enjoying Black Sails  

1. You begin re-reading Treasure Island.

2. You try installing the 2004 edition of Sid Meier’s Pirates! on your shiny Windows 10 PC only to realize that the game, quite miraculously, is running more smoothly than ever. During an afternoon of nostalgic bliss and cheerful plundering you memorize the exact shape and position of Nassau. Seeing Jack Rackham included in the game’s Top Ten Pirates Ever list is making you cheer.

More side effects likely to follow.

Now, the computer game that I’d really love to play is a 1715 Age of Empires Special Edition located in the Caribbean… *g*

Ha! I did my own Treasure Island reread a few months back, see relevant post, because the show does drive you to it. And nice to know about Jack Rackham. I'm currently somewhat angry with him, but as a Londo Mollari fan I'm used to be periodically go "DON'T DO THAT, YOU FOOL! At characters I'm basically fond of.
