Stupidest 1: I was changing corps and moving ships and decided to autopilot through high sec with a low security status... in my Legion.. came back just in time to see my ship esplode.

Stupidest 2: Running a epic arc mission couldn't hit a scramming rat and lost my ship then proceeded to lose two more ships to the infernal rat. Due to angrily and Hastily fitted.

Dumbest noob mistake: Lost my very first ship, a Harbinger, in low-sec. I was ninja mining, had 2 lasers attached so I could kill the rats. Drake lands in belt 50k off, then he warps off. I think "Oh he must be ratting!" 15 seconds later he lands at 0 on me and subsequently melts my face.

Dumbest mining mistake: Going afk with my drones out to protect me in a .6. Came back to a pod after the rats killed all my drones and then destroyed my covetor. Actually did this twice!

Dumbest mission mistake: Not paying attention to the trigger while flying my Absolution in a neut heavy lvl 4. Popped 2 triggers in a row, scrammed by frigs and neuted dry.

Dumbest trading mistake: While playing trading games on an alt I see a contract to buy a plex for 343,000.00. My mind saw it as 343,000,000, so I bought a plex off the market for 313 mil and sold it for 343 k. I felt absolutely ********.

Mmm, I love the smell of pod goo in the morning.

I got an interesting story from back in the day.

So, I was pulling a corp theft at the time all by myself. I was in an Ares for a quick get away. So I started off deep in Catch and took all of the BPO's, some +5 implants, and whatever else could fit. Then I made 20 something jumps to Stain where they had a Carrier BPC chilling (back when carriers were a big deal and new). Then I make my way back to empire space. I notice my path is taking me through HED-GP, notorious for ganktastic times. This was also when the Bob/Goon wars were first flaring up. I figure I will be ok though. I think this was before warp to zero but I felt confident I could make it ok in my inty.

So I jump into HED and notice local is flooded with tons of people. Not good but I keep going anyways. I warp to the gate and get pulled off by a bubble about 70 km out. ****! There was also a massive fleet there with Bob and Goons shooting the hell out of each other. DOUBLE ****! So I kick in my MWD and burn toward the gate straight between the two fleets, missiles flying over my head, lasers burning everywhere on my path. I thought for sure some joker would decide to target the one lone inty streaking around.

I got lucky though. I managed to burn through that wall of fire and jump out into empire space where I promptly found the nearest station, docked up, and heaved a massive sigh of relief.

Me and my friend started up a corp, just the 2 of us. We wanted to make a POS but we didnt want to have to do thousands of missions to get our standing up. So we desided to make it in lowsec. We went down to 0.4 space and set up the POS, as soon as it was up a Dreadnaught showed up and tolled us we had to take it down, but to do that we had to online it and when we onlined it he and 2 other Dreadnaughts showed up and started fireing at it and us. We where podded and 4 hours later we got a email say the POS was destroyed. (Our shield was at 56% to start)

Most Stupid: Going into a wormhole flying a minnie ship (I was the ONLY one in corp that flew rust, everyone else flew caldari, those snobs), and without any skills what so ever for scanning. The result? I was stuck in a WH for a bit while I trained up Caldari Frigate to fly the Heron sitting in the Corp Hanger dealy, there was also the basic skillbooks sitting in there, next to the Heron.

Ballsiest: Flying my partially deadspace fitted Macherial from 6vdt to highsec with no scouts and the intel channels closed. I still have that same Mach :D

Weirdest: Was in a wormhole with 1st corp, was warpin around planets "discovering' stuff, and i noticed something strange, it appeared that the star in there was following me, as in it was always directly behind me. I need to stop going into wormholes

stupidest: bought brand new fitless drake, took shortest route back instead of safest. Guess what was in the next jump.
ballsiest: poked avatar with rifter
weirdest: everything else I did ever, probably.

Stupidest/Ballsiest: though the rest of my fleet was 12 jumps away, i solo tackled a carrier. after being popped i kept bumping the carrier in my pod and was being really annoying till they podded me.

Wierdest: My friend Breia Starbeam decided to autopilot from our home system in null to jita, something like 40+ jumps i think, in a shuttle. Somehow he made it there and then autopiloted the whole way back.

When I was very new to the game I decided I wanted to see the EvE gate in the new Eden system. So I did. In a Rifter.
I then found out about all the cans people had anchored there, some as memorials but most just like 'xxxx was here!!!'.

Wanting to do the same thing I started looking for a place to buy a small secure container. Erhm.....what?!? Nearest is 11 jumps out?
Then and there I decided it would make me serious Isk if I would be the supplier of those containers in the nearest station, which happened to be in the Angur system.
'Ok, lets do this. Zip to Amarr, buy a Sigil, load it with all the small secure containers it can hold and zip back to Angur.'.....

In an unfitted Sigil, without having a clue about low-sec, and without getting shot at once.

It then took 3 whole months to sell 21 containers for a net profit of 4200 Isk.......Shocked

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

It's hard to pick just 1 thing...

Taking an Apoc fitted with 1 ML and the rest large smart bombs 36 jumps through hostile 0.0 with no bookmarks before warp to 0km when there was only warp to 15km... and lived.

Taking a badger mark II through 40+ hostile 0.0 systems with a cloak on it to unanchor and retrieve a tower the alliance I was in had left behind... and lived.

Chasing a lone hostile through 0.0 for about 5 jumps in my Rifter and finding the other 300... then the station.

Joined a new corp, moved down to their area and had a look around.

Went into a 0.4, and saw a ship many km away, so wasn't worried, and I sat there as he proceded to melt me from 150+km, I'd always flown ravens so had never heard of sniping ships.

I sat there stunned and didn't warp off, or even slow boat it back to the gate. Needless to say, I learned about snipers, and maybe it would be a good idea to move away when you're getting shot at.

Stupidest: I (drunk) once popped & podded my own alt while gate camping in AAS-BR. The alt was carting half a bill's worth of stuff to the local station in an Itty. Not a lot dropped.
