It seems I shot myself in the foot with that last post, but more on that in a moment. I said I'd discuss the suggestions I got and so I'm going to do that first.
First off, to those few who congratulated me, thank you very much for the considerate words. Unfortunately you are the exception in New Eden rather than the rule. There were far more people willing to pile on the derision for my little mistake. That's pretty much par for the course in New Eden. Who doesn't want to whore-in on a killmail? I am grateful to you for showing me the better side of New Eden.
The "funniest" suggestion I got was to let myself be podded while only having an Alpha level clone. That way I could relive the entire 100 million skill point experience five years from now. While the humor in this is apparent to me, the practicality is not. You see, I'd have to actually get podded twice to make this happen. Even if the first time was by self-destruct order, I make it a habit of not being podded twice in one day. So thank you very much for the suggestion Thf, but no.
The only other suggestion I got, and the only seriously considered one, was from Kethry Avenger. She doesn't have a blog in her profile, but maybe she'll start one and join the Eve blogging community full time. I think I'd like that. Anyway, her suggestion was,
"Have some kind of Find Mabrick contest. Go hide in a wormhole. Post the name of it and first one to find you (kill you) wins the prize. Optionally while getting blown up by you or something. If you want more people to be in on it use a low class wormhole."This was indeed my first inclination of what to do as a celebration. I would of course enlist the aid of Surely You're Joking to defend me, but alas, we are very busy with business again. I am also concerned that those who are unfamiliar with WH space would be at a distinct disadvantage if I held such an event in a WH. Lastly, it would not have enough lead time to let people know where I am. The longest WH connection lasts 24 hours so people would have practically no time to mobilize and find me. These are the concerns my corp mates and I came up with concerning this idea. It's just a little too impractical to implement was the general feeling. Though by all means, if anyone finds me in a WH and blows me up, feel free to claim the loot prize. That's how it works! And as a thank you for the suggestion Kethry, I'm sending you one (1) ISK for every SP I have, at the moment I get around to sending it, as a reward for posting a suggestion. That'll be a little over 100 mISK to you. WOOT!
And that leads me to the thing I said I'd discuss in a moment. One of the comments, which I did not publish, in paraphrase said "who is Mabrick and why should I care he has 100,000,000 skill points when he can't even proof his own post." My initial reaction to that was "sod off wanker." Two days later my reaction is still "sod off wanker." And as it preoccupied me, about 12 hours ago an epiphany hit me. Why the hell should my celebration of my goal involve giving away my hard earned stuff to a bunch of wankers?
Okay, to be fair, not everyone in Eve Online is a wanker - though with a predominantly male participation science tells me 19 out of 20 capsuleers wank. And even if there were more women playing Eve Online, that number would only drop by one. So indeed, most capsuleers are likely wankers. But this is one hell of a digression. Back to the epiphany.
So tl;dr, this was my goal and I should reward myself rather than others. That is what I've decided to do. I'm going to reward myself by putting those 100 million skill points to good use. Remember how I said I could sit in a lot of ships but had no experience in them? That changes starting today. I'm done with being a carebear. It's time to do something new. No more hard boiled eggs and nuts. Give me the candy! From this day forward there is no "Fly Careful." You need to watch out. I aim to misbehave.
PS: If this post isn't proofed to your satisfaction... sod off. Start your own damn blog.
