History & Reference
The only reason I'm not a full-time grifter is because I lack the patience needed for a successful long con. I once purchased a subscription to Pageantry Magazine for a Toddlers and Tiaras-loving friend and having to wait for her first issue to arrive before I took credit for the joke damn near killed me. This book made me think about that a lot, and it made me wish I had:
1. The moxie to fake a skeleton of a 10-foot-tall giant
2. The ambition to bury it
3. The patience to wait a year before "finding" it
4. The salesmanship to profit off it
Put back the Guinness Book of World Records and give the gift of armchair travels to wondrous places instead.
