Too damn cheap to buy an Orca!

Let's assume that a certain carebear is too damn cheap to buy an Orca at current prices even if he does have 2.5 billion ISK laying around. I mean really, can you believe what some people want for those things? It seems like just 3 months ago they were going for less than 400 million ISK. It's highway robbery I tell you!

Anyway, back to "too damn cheap." Let's assume said carebear wants a modicum of protection for his cargo. Let's further assume that once in a while, at totally random intervals, the carebear makes a Jita run through a .5 bottleneck that sees lots of pirate activity.

No, the carebear's cargo isn't really all that valuable in the great scheme of things. However, it is a considerable investment in hard labor. The cargo's value in sweat alone is astronomical. Wait, every cargo is astronomical in New Eden. It's the nature of things...

Okay, its value in terms of sweat alone is tremendous. So the carebear, knowing he'll be scanned without a corporate cargo hold to hide things in, wants to be as unappetizing as possible based on the the premise the ISK value of the cargo in question does not justify the firepower, planning and risk to pop him. (And yes, the carebear knows that sometimes they do it just for fun. Not much anyone can do about being on the receiving end of someone else's crappy day.)

So which fitting would you pick? What would you do differently?

Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
