I'll start.

4. Soloed a freighter into nullsec. In first system got ransomed for 300 mil and blown out of space.

3. Was too lazy to travel through half the cluster. Changed clone station, self-destructed. Realized I just threw a bil worth of implants down the drain.

2. Gave 2 bil to a goon.

1. Was falling asleep at the keyboard, but refused to let an opportunity to jack 4 bil worth of BPO's slip by. Took down the POS shield, blew everything to pieces. Couldn't find what I was looking for in the clusterf**k I just created. Closed the laptop just short of putting my fist through the screen.

Wasted a Catalyst and five frigates trying to complete an SOE arc mission when I all I actually had to do was quit the mission and restart it with a slight standing loss. Rolling Eyes

1. AFK-hauling with an Obelisk with cargo worth 1.5b without first setting autopilot to high-sec jumps only

2. Getting so peed-off by some guy in local that I engage him with my shiny fully fitted navy mega without realizing that it is a high sec system I am in - mega concordoken

You've got me topped, dude.

Stupidest thing I've done is replying to yet another thread with pretty much the exact same subject and discussion.

1. Accepted a lucrative courior contract into null-sec, only to find I couldnt dock at the station once I survived the trip. (This was before the warning given on contracts now). Turns out I was shipping an empty container worth nothing anyway. Lost my collateral but gained experience...the hard way.

2. Again, another shipment into null sec. I was psyched this time. Checked my clone, checked my ship counter measures. etc. Checked to make sure I could dock at the station too.

Survived the warp bubbles. Survived the gate ganks. Had to make some evasive moves to planets for misdirection. Heart pounding jump after jump...finally made it and docked.

...only to find out I forgot to take the damn package with me when I accepted the contract.Rolling Eyes

Story time!

1. Got drunk and signed up for Eve again. While this could be the end of the story, I rather like Eve. So I flew out to Solitude to fly with some friends of mine, but I didn't have any ships there... so they gave me a corp blackbird. I had absolutely no missile skills at the time (perfect skillz now :flex:). We got into a fight with... a zealot. I remember that much... luckily. I warped to zero on the fight at 100, got zapped by the zealot. Warped out to a planet, warped back at zero. Got ****ED UP by the zealot. http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=6269149

2. We had a small gang of some kind, and spotted a BANE broadsword 500km off the station. I was bored and took the bait. http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=9250934

3. I was bored and tried to solo a battleship in my shield Brutix. It turns out that shield brutixes take full damage from battleship guns. http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=10376949

4. There was a pair of 20+ man gangs next door. We spotted a phoon in a belt, and I warped 65AU (solo) to enage it next to the gate they were all on. Turns out the gang wasn't as big as I thought (it was just a cluster**** of small/medium gangs), but the effects were equally deadly to me. I almost killed the phoon before his mates landed, even though they were much closer. YARRRR!!

5. I was bored, and Ivy had a blob on the station. I tried to volley one as they undocked. Whoops. http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=11300935

6. -EM- was knocking over a Phobos POS with 40 Tempests and 10+ scims, and we had been bat phoned in to come help out. Phobos brought in some LR BS and was getting face ****d. -EM- had some scims way off their fleet and the FC told me to tackle one. I got volleyed by arty tempests. I went back to bed happy (**** getting up at 5am). http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=12523195

7. Rupture and Hookbill on the gate. One of my mates got tackled by the Hookbill and was gonna get nuked by the Rupture. I aggressed the Rupture when he got off the gate. The **** I'll get into for an Epic Kill. Laughing http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=12987818

8. "Solo" mega playing gate games, with obvious backup fleet. Hesp says "This is a trap" on vent, and I'm like "I know" and jump in. Laughing http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=13012794

9. I wanted a binger. Turns out Amarr is a ****ty station to try to get out of without an insta. Hek is much better. http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=13157184

10. Roamed for an hour or two in low sec, but couldn't find anyone to shoot. Went out to 0.0 and was 2 jumps ahead of the fleet. Sabre lands next to me and I nuked him down to 10% structure or so. Scim warps to me. Kitsune lands and permajammed me. Caracal lands and eventually kills me. Scim lands. Scim permajammed. Hurricane warps to him. Scim dies. Hurricane lands, permajammed. Hurricane dies. Laughing http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=13241744

Hope everyone enjoyed tales of me being ******ed. As if you didn't know I was ******ed already. Razz

Worked my standings up to 8 with a corporation so I could get jump clones, then realizing that corp did not offer jump clones.

Killboards used for telling a story are cool. Killboards used for determining how awesome you are at Eve are ******ed. Guess which one you try to do? Wink

I tried to hustle back to a gate after jumping into a gate camp, but didn't bother waiting out the session change before decloaking. Would have made it if I didn't have a session change timer...sat there trying to jump after my poor little rifter popped (http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=13149720) and lost a half bil clone too (http://eve.battleclinic.com/killboard/killmail.php?id=13149719)Embarassed

Bought a Stabber for 65 Million ISK.

learned a lesson, so I guess it was money well spent in the long run Rolling Eyes

In my first days, continually undocked in a mining Omen even when somebody with kill rights was sitting out of station.
