Johnson:

Since you are so rich.
And I'm not

Since 1 bil isk is like 10 isk to you
And not to me

Can I have 1 bil isk?
You can write it off on your taxes

True, it is a vanity piece


I am tired of being called vain.

I have altered my Avatar portrait so the monocle is not in shot anymore, as my head is pointed down and out of the page

It should update to the eve forums in a while.

If you cannot afford quality items you should not be able to look apon them if people are going to be hateful

Johnson is just jealous he doesn't have cool shades, that's all.


Well funny you should say that, I know whether you can put the shades on OVER the monocle.

You however, will have to wonder about that when you go to bed tonight.

As you have no monocle.


Or do i?

Maybe it's below my shades

I do however know for sure you don't have cool shades.

And this frustrates and angers you, so you end up spouting nonesense about other people.

All i know is that:

I have cool shades

You don't have cool shades

You are angry

Let me put it this way to you haters.

1) Does my avatar look better, even if very slightly, then it would without a monocle. Slightly different, slightly unique, slightly cooler.

2) If the monocle cost 10 isk, would you buy one, if only for some slight entertainment amongst your corpies.

The answer, my hateful poor friends, is YES and YES

The only thing stopping you buying one, is the cost of the item

I am rich, however, and the cost is the same to me as 10 isk is to you.

ERGO: The only reason you do not buy a monocle is that you are poor.



No offense meant but that monocle looks like crap. Now off course it's a matter of taste but even at 0.01 isks i wouldn't get it.
This said it's not because something looks nice it's worth the price. I like bacon but i wouldn't pay 1k for 100gr of it even if i have the money.


You are simply saying that to look cool amongst your peer group.

Everybody is hating on the ARUM, so you hate on the ARUM

If you were offered a monocle for 0.01 isk YOU WOULD GET IT

And YOU WOULD WEAR it.

I am intelligent enough to form my own opinion.


>bought monocle
>intelligent

>pick one

Johnson Scythe is the only successful troll on these forums.

I applaud you, keep doing what you are doing sir. I may have to purchase a monocle just so I feel less worthless than those that do not have a monocle, however my value will never be as great as yours.

Your shades are not cool. Your shades are the equivalent of the free ones you get at mcdonalds after buying 4 happy meals.

I could put them on right now if I wanted.
You cannot put on a monocle right now.

Why would this make me angry?

Welcome to the elite club of monocle owners


You look silly.

I can afford a monocle I just don't want one. I pity you for falling for this joke and giving CCP an excuse to charge us over the odds for this vanity nonsense.

I see an essential problem here, surely to have a status* symbol, others should be able to see it, which is not the case in eve.



*the only status I'm detecting here is "more money than sense".

I'm having too much fun flying capital ships, wich now that i mention it, some can't even dock so the vanity store for these items is not an option for a fair amount of super carrier and titan pilots out there, wich their ships cost considerably more than a pair of monocles, so they definitely are extremely rich individuals.....Chribba and his alts fly 4 titans(one from each race).

10/10 I await with great anticipation CCP fixing the bug that prevents Mr Scythe from wearing his second monocle at the same time. Not that you need it sir. You are at the moment far and away the most debonaire monocle wearer in EVE. It is fitting you were the first and have set the standard for those to come.

I look forward to the coming weeks and your continued posting as your wardrobe expands. Perhaps even a blog of your own with advice to the lower classes on fashion and finance for you are both stylish and demonstrably rich and are the ideal candidate to guide us in these matters.

Nice monocle.

Think I'll get me one. I think it will go nicely with my outfit.

Say... can you get different colors? I'd like to have a different one for each day of the week.

Yes. I am that rich.

Mr Epeen Cool

( have to get a monocle smiley instead of the one with the shades, though}

tomorrow i will start selling some sausages to people for EUR 20,000 each. I wonder how many people will buy them and not feel like an idiot.


Judging by the size of the fine dining industry: a lot of people.

You claim you can.

But can you really?

I think you cannot because you just like to brag about your monocle too much to put shades on.

This mental dilemma is the source of your anger

On one you hand you want to wear cool shades but on the other hand you want brag about an ugly monocle.

1) No your avatr looks ******ed with that thing on tbh
2) No ,for sure not as long as the item can come ingame only via MT

You assume I spent dollars on plex to get a monocle

As I have stated many times in this thread (perhaps the recording device on the monocle would aid your memory) I am very rich in isk

There is no legal way to transfer isk into dollars. And the illegal way is fraught with difficulty.

SO NO I COULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED ANY OF THE ITEMS YOU STUPIDLY LINK IN THAT THREAD

That thread is aimed at people who are considering buying plex with dollars. Not monocles with isk!


7/10 Great idea for an epic troll and laughs... but only a 7 for showing you're really not that bright.

You bought plex with isk.

You used plex to buy aurum instead of game time.

You are no longer able to buy game time with that plex.

Now you have to pay real money for game time to stare at the virtual hole in your head.

Gratz!
