A modern hobby akin to building a ship in a bottle.

Other people have no clue why you do what you so.
It takes time and patience to achieve anything.
You look ate what it took someone else to achieve something and just wonder where to begin.
The day you think you have mastered it, you learn about a new facet of the hobby.
No matter what you do, someone else has done it bigger and better.
After much effort you can produce a thing of beauty, only to have some griefer crush it in seconds.

I would recommend placing the bottled ship in a protective case and out of reach of small children. Wink

Eve-wise, find something you love doing so that you'll do it often. ugh Courtesy of a friend of mine; wise advice!

It's like playing with internet spaceship dolls. I put the fittings on them. I name them. I pet them. I has a tea party. I undock and jump into gate camp. My doll explodes! I do it all over again, because that's just how I roll.

Um, I don't think you're too familiar with this whole building a ship in a bottle hobby. Generally, you put them on the mantle, where they stay and get dusty. It isn't like there are gangs of burglars going around ganking people's ships in bottles. Real life isn't like Eve (thank the Amarrian God).

Playing eve in high sec is like standing in a huge crowd of people with a paintball gun, but not being able to shoot anyone.

Playing eve in low sec is like being dropped in the amazon forest with a paintball gun and looking for someone to shoot.

Playing eve in 0.0 is a combination of both low and high except your floating in a life raft with a few people surrounded by sharks and you have a fishing pole.

Playing Eve is like.... .....a tease and denial session with a super hot dominatrix who happens to be confined to a wheel chair.

.... having a day off after months of non-stop work, and on that day off, not having any idea what to do with all that time, and you spend the whole day trying to figure out what to do, but can't get started, so you try to position everything for that next day off months away...

If EvE were a part of the food pyramid, it would be the meat. Not the cheese, but the meat.
