Wow. Lotta stuff. And it's all so damn serious and important and stuff. BIG GRIN.
I'm actually not entirely without shame. I mean, let's face it. We're internet spaceship enemies, but in all truth, I don't have much against anybody in this game (except the ones who are complete douches to me for no real reason, and even then, I generally get over it pretty quickly). So, for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why everyone got all heated over this.
Okay, so, now onto the not so important news: GOONS!! (http://www.evenews24.com/2012/06/21/goons-running-faction-war/) Doing bad things!!!! Cue the evil maniacal laughter and creepy music played on an old organ.
So, in a completely unexpected move totally outside of the Goons' normal operating method (yes, this was totally not anything like what they ALWAYS do), they apparently gamed the shit out of FW to make a billion gajillion trillion zillion and a half ISK, and totally kept the Minmatar at high warzone control levels for like, well, the entire time warzone control levels have existed! Wow! That's totally not like those decent mild-mannered null-sec gentlemen at all. I mean, they never go out and purposefully try to mess up a chunk of the Eve populace's day whilst simultaneously netting a ridiculously sinful amount of ISK. Not THEM! (lol. I can't even keep a straight face while I'm writing this).
Okay, but now for a moment of seriousness.... BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
No, but it is terrible. I mean, it kinda is. At the same time though, I can't really get all that upset about it. I mean, it's a horrible abuse of the mechanics, but, it's not like Goons wrote the damn code. I'm not sure half of them can even read to be honest. So, yeah, I'm not terribly surprised.
Now for actual serious: It's my 5 year anniversary of being married this weekend. Yay!
Also, I'm giving thought to possibly running for CSM next year. Gimme feedback. Good idea? Bad idea? Worst idea since like, um, that guy who attached a jet engine to his truck and crashed it into the side of a cliff?
Also, just so you know:
