unsatisfying

Every now and then I just have to play up a bit in local.  Mr Studley was flipped while jetcanning veldspar in a Retriever in hisec, and took umbrage.  Honestly, is there no depth to which people will sink to scratch together a living.

StudleyManiac > only target I have in local is a damn can flipper
Vasilissa Dragomere > i have no targets in local
Silent Shaz > o/
StudleyManiac > who should be ashamed
Silent Shaz > oh don’t be like that
Hermann Salza > Hallo Silent
madhatta18 > yeah blimmin flippers
Silent Shaz > I hung around to let you shoot me and all
madhatta18 > darn shame the npc cant get them for it
madhatta18 > lol
StudleyManiac > and what did I do?
StudleyManiac > gtfo
Silent Shaz > clever
Silent Shaz > I’m new at this so I don’t really know how to properly psyche people into shooting me
StudleyManiac > nope smart… you did the clever thing and baited
madhatta18 > dont engage a flipper thats what thay want
Silent Shaz > I’m introducing a mate to the world of eve, and can flipping is part of eve’s rich pageant :D
Vasilissa Dragomere > im new to eve only been playing for 3 weeks but no ones ever shown me how to can flip
Silent Shaz > studley will show you
StudleyManiac > nope
StudleyManiac > you flip a can from me you can keep it
Vasilissa Dragomere > lol my alliance and corp frown apon such things lol
Silent Shaz > nah I felt bad, I left the can there in the belt for you

I really thought he might go back and nick it.  He didn’t. For shame.

StudleyManiac > and why?
StudleyManiac > would your aliance frown upon it?
Silent Shaz > I hear it can be a rich source of tears and entertainment for all
StudleyManiac > entertainment I can see…. but tears hmmmm
StudleyManiac > you get flipped let it go
Silent Shaz > or… seek revenge in manly rifter-retriever combat
StudleyManiac > move on to a different belt but you do get a window to kill the flipper
madhatta18 > true
Silent Shaz > flippers deserve death by boat violence
StudleyManiac > time for more alcohol
madhatta18 > but by the time you get a ship to doit thay prob run
Silent Shaz > maybe, but you can get lucky and get a dumb one that will hang around

Just throwing back the small ones so they grow into big ones for later catching.

StudleyManiac > yes they are like whale s** you can’t get any lower than that
Silent Shaz > awww
Silent Shaz > cluttering up the belts with cans like that, someone could get their ship dented
StudleyManiac > no worries … this is just a game
madhatta18 > and i dont want to scratch my custom paint job
Silent Shaz > aye it is :) well played to you sir

I was prepared to go to bed about now.  Mr Studley had different ideas.

StudleyManiac > you want to make your imaginary penis bigger go ahead and flip me go ahead… My penis is big enough for me
madhatta18 > nah cant got war targets floating around
Silent Shaz > wait, didn’t you just say it’s a game? aren’t flippers just playing a game too?
Silent Shaz > suddenly it’s about penises?
madhatta18 > yes
StudleyManiac > yes…
madhatta18 > its a dangerous living thou
StudleyManiac > yours is too small so you have to compensate
Silent Shaz > lol
madhatta18 > lol
Vasilissa Dragomere > hello again
Silent Shaz > MY HONOUR IS BESMIRCHED. I DEMAND SINGLE COMBAT TO SETTLE THIS INSULT.
Vasilissa Dragomere > okay but u shoot first
madhatta18 > lol
StudleyManiac > you’re a can flipper you have no honour
Vasilissa Dragomere > all i said was hello again lmao
Silent Shaz > ARE YOU A MAN OR A FEMALE IMPERSONATOR, STUDLEY (IF THAT IS INDEED YOUR REAL NAME)
madhatta18 > who uses there real name here ????

Wtf?

StudleyManiac > nope my real name is Maniac…. and I do have a penis
Vasilissa Dragomere > I dont :(

I presume Vasilissa is referring to not using their real name, but it could well be an unconfirmed sighting of a genuine girl.

StudleyManiac > short but it sitll does the job
Silent Shaz > WILL YOU NOT BACK YOUR COWARDLY WORDS WITH DEEDS?
madhatta18 > i fail to see what that has to do with a fame lol
StudleyManiac > silent do know where the cap lock key is?
Vasilissa Dragomere > I didn’t realise I was using cowardly words
madhatta18 > hahahaha
Silent Shaz > I am outraged, that’s my outraged voice
madhatta18 > nice
Vasilissa Dragomere > okay ill stop now its been fun though lol
madhatta18 > this is so funny
StudleyManiac > thanks for my 15 minutes of fame I will die realizing I have achieved perfection
Silent Shaz > YOU HURL INSULTS AND ASPERSIONS, AND HIDE IN YOUR STATION BEHIND CONCORD. THAT IS NOT THE ACT OF A MAN
madhatta18 > cool np
madhatta18 > its been an entertaining local chat lol
Silent Shaz > STUDLEY, YOU AND YOUR CORP WILL HENCEFORTH BE BRANDED COWARDS UNTIL THIS MATTER IS SETTLED

OK I read ninja blogs. Get over it.

StudleyManiac > man/woman… what is difference (besides one in an innie and the other an outie)?
StudleyManiac > silent what issues do you have with me? my alliance would like to know
Kimaeha Jeremin > Lols… Space-Diplomacy 101.
StudleyManiac > hmmmm where are the skillbooks for that
Silent Shaz > NONE BUT YOUR UNJUSTIFIED INSULTS TO MY HONOUR AS A HARDWORKING CLEARER OF UNANCHORED BELT CANS
Kimaeha Jeremin > You don’t need skillbooks for “run like a girl”
Vasilissa Dragomere > I would just like to ask are there any real life females in local?
madhatta18 > is there a skill books for cvan flipping ?
madhatta18 > if so where can i get one
StudleyManiac > yes it is named AssHole 101
Vasilissa Dragomere > I havn’t met any on eve besides me yet and its getting pretty boring talking to the guys about how big there guns are lmao
madhatta18 > and whats it pay a day
Silent Shaz > AND STILL YOU INSULT, AND STILL YOU HIDE, AND STILL YOU REFUSE MY CHALLENGE

Vasilissa Dragomere > It’s just lucky i like big guns
Vasilissa Dragomere > and i would say killing ppl but all i do is die lmao
madhatta18 > nah forget it ill rather work for my iskies nothing wose than beeing a can rat
StudleyManiac > silent …. no challenge… I don’t PVP

Vasilissa Dragomere > now now mad no need for such language lmao
Silent Shaz > THEN HOLD YOUR COWARDLY TONGUE SIR

Kimaeha Jeremin > No, Vasilissa… “Cowardly Tongue…”
StudleyManiac > my bad was just trying to let the community know what you were up to
Vasilissa Dragomere > no i ment pvp?
Kimaeha Jeremin > Oh. Nevermind :)
Vasilissa Dragomere > im blonde i do admit that lol
madhatta18 > this is interesting we actually have amusing convos in local
Vasilissa Dragomere > sorry kind of new at the game lol
Silent Shaz > Thank you for spreading the massage that cluttering belts with cans is a sociopathic activity
StudleyManiac > sorry the sun is up and I have to contiinue drinkiing….
Kimaeha Jeremin > That makes too much sense …
Silent Shaz > FAREWELL
StudleyManiac > adious
Silent Shaz > PEOPLE OF [REDACTED], YOUR CANS ARE SAFE WITH ME

Woulda been better ending with a kill. Either way. Ah well.

In hindsight, I should have challenged him to combat in an industrial. I’m going to fit a Battle Mammoth specially for future opportunities.

The urge to yarr is strong.

I’m not by any stretch of the imagination an experienced pirate, but I love Eve for its freedom to do so if and when it tickles my fancy. Since returning to Eve a week or so ago, getting set up to indulge in a bit of yoinking and wormhole raiding has been my focus.

It hasn’t been smooth though. First, Brucey woke up from his six month slumber in a 0.0 outpost (BWF-ZZ) which had, during said slumber, changed hands and was now owned by The Russians TM. He had also been good-naturedly kicked for inactivity (with a standing invite to reapply). Invictus are a great bunch of lads and I love flying with them, but RL won’t permit that sort of commitment at the moment. One day I shall return to the fleet Sabre; but it is not this day.

So with about half a billion in ships and fittings sitting in a station that I had no docking rights at, it was time to hit the market and contracts. I sold everything except for three GSCs of assorted paraphenalia and my Firetail, posted three very generous courier contracts to the nearest hisec, waited for an opportune moment and snuck out the back door. An evening of autopiloting and I had most of my remaining gear back down in my hisec hunting grounds.

Shaz, meanwhile, had been busy buying and fitting a Hound for Bruce as well as a number of Canes, Rifters, Vigils and Cyclones for sharesies; as well as upgrading all of her research agents to L3 for some passable passive income. My 3rd main switched training from a Black Ops to an Orca, though he’s still a month off the hull so I have some time to get settled.

Tuesday night I had half an hour spare so I scanned down my home hisec to see if I could find a wormhole to peek my Hound into. No such luck, but I did find a Radar site and, recent costs being what they were, felt compelled to quickly fit a codebreaker and check out cans. 18M in decryptors for my trouble; not bad at all.

Last night I had a similar short Eve opportunity and headed out in a pretty bog standard Ninja Vigil. Shaz (in her Prowler) scanned down a Domi well off the ecliptic, clearly in a mission. There’s nothing I have that can take out a mission-fit Domi, but I thought at least I’ll get some battleship salvage and maybe goad him into getting Concorded, leaving a tasty fat wreck for picking over. No such luck as he ignored me salvaging the battleship wrecks, even as I helpfully target painted his mission rats. Still, Armour Plates eh? Ship them off to my lab for inventing into highly profitable [redacted].

I need to run with some experienced pirates so I can see how it’s done. This feels like amateur hour.
