Circuitous

Gwen looked up as Jack laughed at a joke she couldn't hear. He was in his office talking to a woman from some obscure section of law enforcement that she never knew existed.

Jack talked about the future as if he'd seen it. Gwen couldn't quite comprehend that, but she was still coming to terms with him being a hell of a lot older than he looked.

He knew the oddest people, had more connections and, she suspected, knew where all the bodies were buried. She wouldn't be surprised if he could bring an entire country to its knees.

Luckily for the country, Jack's having way too much fun to bring it to its knees.

That would imply he'd use his power frivolously, where I don't think he would.

I'm not that familiar with Jack, as Torchwood hasn't landed in this area yet; but from what I do know he seems like the type to have fun, regardless of how important his work is.
