I think I have 42k km on my bicycle. I experienced time dilation over all those years. The clock ticks slower and over many months I can see that the amount of time I have saved is growing. And I am starting to be more late to job.

Morning lovelies! Enjoy Westerners' karma!

(Eventually I've found a version with good English subtitles which get the meaning of "per tutti un 'ora d'aria" and "pantha rei" so the lyrics make sense)

Great car for missions. 👌

I am making some cash from time to time, for this future update they will add, gunrunning or something. But more often just fooling around, its more fun I think. Dropping granades from roof on people, jumping from cliffs, picking up prostitutes for naughty moment in the back alley, flying under bridges, or just driving a bicycle on the beach, listening to music and slaloming around people walking or laying on the sand. 👌

I'm glad you had your car fixed for free.
As an owner of a similar car in the past I have few things to say:

1) It is impossible for a car from 1997 with 2 previous owners to have only 269k km on the mileage counter. One of its owners definitely rigged it before selling. I know this because my dad had a brand new 2000 Kia Sephia 1.6 SLX which he sold to my uncle in 2001 when our family went to live abroad for the next 7 years. The car remained somewhat unused but regularly serviced during that period. When we came back, this time my uncle was abroad and I used the car while he was gone. The car was at 190k km (118k miles) and had trouble climbing up steep hills in my city with 4 people in the car. I used the car one day every 2 weeks,caring about its maintenance up until in 2016 March when the range of the car can only go on a full tank (400km or 248 miles) was severely limited due to old age gas guzzling and it could no longer climb hills even at the first gear. The car's entire engine was pronounced dead at 290k km (180k miles) by the guy at the repairshop. So most likely your car was either held in a closed garage for a long time by the previous owners or the mileage was rigged before you bought it. Sad

2) I was afraid of driving my car faster than 80 km/h(50 mph) even on a highway because I was afraid I would damage the engine. You say you drive at 85 mph. If you drove only 3 mph faster and had a flux capacitor equipped on the car, then you would be able to travel through time,lol. Lol No,seriously, that is 140km and dangerously fast for an old, non-luxury car. You could skid and end up in an accident no matter how careful you drive. Sad


It's a Honda Prelude, not a Kia. 400.000 km is a good average lifespan for a Prelude, specially if they've been maintained by the book at officialy licensed shops. And anyway, if anyone was to rig the counter, would be to make the vehicle look younger... not older, IMO. Blink


Yes it's a 1997 Honda Prelude with 167,000 miles on it. I'm the 3rd owner. The 1st owner did the regular maintenance schedule with the Dealership and sold it to another person who took over payments and kept the maintenance package going who then traded the car in at the Dealership for another Honda. When I bought it about 6 years ago, the car had 89,000 miles on it.

The Transmission is starting to show signs of needing repair, the pause when automatically shifting between 1st gear and 2nd gear is getting rather long now. Other than a small oil leak, a few drops on ground after sitting overnight, the car is in excellent condition, both exterior and interior, with a very strong running motor. It's also very fast with great gas millage. The fastest I've had it up to is 125 MPH with 1500 RPM's left to go on the Tachometer before it hit Red Line. The Speedometer actually goes up to 150 MPH. The car loves mountain roads and responds great due to it's Front Wheel Drive and low suspension.

Also those cars are known for going over 300,000 miles before needing a major rebuild or replacement. Anyway, as long as I take care of the car with proper maintenance, hopefully it'll last me a very long time.

Hi o/

Yes, it was, it is and will be. 😎

Thanks for likes. 👍
Really slow days now... I made today 290 M ISK in the game just from one site in High sec. few years ago I would make around 500M ISK on the same item, and I could buy one month subscription time in a form of PLEX. Now, not really. *Sigh*

290 M from a single site?
The "M" still stands for "million" here, doesn't it?
Damn...that's more than what I used to make with incursions back in the days...and about what I made in a month when I was building AFs.....

Help me Capsuleers, you're (probably) my only hope! I think there's a fondness for LEGO here, and I wonder if you might like to support a project of mine with likes - just not here!

The X-Bomber from Star Fleet

So, yes, it's a spaceship. In EVE terms, it's probably a battlecruiser. It comes from an old Japanese puppetry driven show called X-Bomber in Japan, Star Fleet in most other places - including where I first watched it in the early 1980s. Loads of videos around of it, and my own site here:

Star Fleet X-Bomber Homepage

This has been a very long-term relationship for me! Basically I'm trying to get this model in the running to be an actual LEGO set, which takes a lot of support, and at the moment I need a little help getting it off the ground so I can get more time and a better run at it. So if you do happen to like LEGO, and spaceships, and missiles, and lasers, and transforming mecha type shows, then it would be great if you could support the idea on the Lego Ideas site. Whilst I am of course biased, I do think it'd make a great playable set. I hope this is the right thread for this?! Cheers! Fly safe!

Hey there Zimmy Zeta,

Been a long time and it's good to see you again. This place just hasn't been the same without you here.

Exploration rewards are just a drop in the Ocean now compared to the bucket loads of ISK it use to generate years ago.

Hell, I was averaging about 100 mill per hour running high sec sites and that was just the ISK rewards, I would hoard away all the high meta level modules. With CCP nerfing the hell out of loot drops and all the competition, it's almost not worth the time to run those sites.

Anyway, hope you post here more often, help us try to break these forums again before CCP activates the new forums..

Why, thank you very much, DMC.
I just finished moving houses and have now internet access again, so the main obstacle to forum posting is out of the way now...

Actually loot is dropping more often statistically I think, but more people are running sites now. Every one of those people gets his smaller share. Maybe its better like that? *Shrugs* They say here: its better to hold sparrow in your hand than watch pigeon on the roof. *shrugs*

I am licking a rum filling out of a chocolate praline. Probably greatest thing I will ever achieve as a pirate.
