An interesting read which succeeded in changing my opinion of high sec miners.

Though this entire thread is going to be just people commenting on the sheer number of words, as if they've never read a book before in their life.


What, you believe the fantastic drivel this man has come up with?

I suppose you believe the people who tell you the grass is purple, even though you see that it is clearly green?

He has cited nothing. Everything in this thread is speculation based on speculation.

''Brevity is the soul of wit''- Some dead guy who isn't really relevant to discussions about space miners and the killing thereof

Seriously I'm pretty sure I read something that would resemble the executive summary of this very large post somewhere on one of the many suicide ganking/propaganda/ice interdiction threads of the last few months. It was really unnecessary.

At least I have the capacity to accept that things may not be as they seem. Just because you see green grass doesn't mean it's truly green, or that it's even really there. But this is a philosophical discussion for another time.

Spare me the new-age philosophical crap. It's a way for relativists to justify their actions when they can't find a reason in the real world. After all, the world is really an illusion, right?

Reads like it was written from a small wood cabin in remote Montana Lol

The advantage of a bad memory is that one can enjoy the same good things for the first time several times.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.

+1 person who actually read all of that.

I have to say, good read. It is these sort of characters that give EVE the depth that it has. I am glad that there are still people around willing to put this much thought into the game.

Someone has spent too much time at uni writing long papers or something. I hope he does something else with his time besides writing long winded speeches. He should get a job working for a politician somewhere.

I could have said what he did in maybe only a few sentences.

I don't usually mine but I now have a strong urge to start mining again for some weird reason.

But seriously, cool story bro but WOW!!! dude this is a game and you wrote a manifesto that rivals Mein Kampf. Did you miss the daily dosage of whatever you're on? Shocked
