Try again. Spell properly and make sense.

Thanks. :)

Yes; Sorta; HELL yes!

If you're looking for content, you'll get some.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

You seem to suggest you are mining more than you need. Going from system to system depleting all our precious natural resources is a crime against the Code.

See Bio for isk doubling rules. If you didn't read bio, chances are you funded those who did.

It's okay. I'm sure somebody will beat it into your head eventually, because obviously you don't want to learn things for your own good. :)

Sure you can do it. Although I think its the kind of thing better attemped with a few accounts, then you have a proper nomad fleet with storage/boosts from the orca and some actual roid crunching power. But if you want to fly around in a solo retriever/mackinaw, then nothings stooping you.

Hey, you're being "That Guy"! You know, the one that rolls around the internet in your internet tough-guy truck, taking pot-shots at people who aren't as well versed in grammar and spelling as you are.

Go team, go!

FWIW, I understood exactly what the OP was trying to get across, and it sounds fairly entertaining.

Sure! It doesn't sound profitable at all, but I like the space-tourist aspect.

Be expecting to be extorted for about 10 million by a bounch of dorks spouting nonsense about some "New Order" as hosted by Beaver 957 or anyone else mentioning anything about a "Code". They will bump you until you either pay them 10 Million or decide that the procurer/venture you are in is too tempting a target to resist and unleashing all the destructive potential of their small weapons that they have mounted to destroyers. Once you are dead they will congratulate themselves on a job well done in the name of that dude that seems to get them going.

Extorted for 10 mil? You are purchasing a Mining Indulgence, the ability to mine however much you want and not be harassed. Its worth every .01 ISK. Just like anything else in Highsec, it can be viewed as a tax, a necessary evil if you may wish to call it that.

Now, if you believe that its extortion, there are other alternatives, but most usually involve some very sensual maneuvers with some very fast and heavy ships, and usually end with a fair bit of Fed Navy Antimatter applied in not-so-erotic ways... although the word 'hull penetration' may be used near the end moments...and that's kinda hot.
