How I Became a Professional Gambler

I had never gambled before and knew nothing about it, but I'd gotten too many e-mails like it. I was at my parents house for winter break during my first year at UT, and I was bored.

Hmm. That doesn't seem very risky. I might as well download to see what it's all about.

The Terminator and the Pizza of Doom

On Pod Born

At one particular point in my Eve career i said it'd be fun to some Planetary Interaction. In retrospect i was bloody insane for thinking micromanaging will be fun but at that point the concept of 'easy' and passive money-gain appealed to me.

Found myself a little planet off Molden Heath close to Rens, in lowsec, with an Interbus CO on it. It was fine and dandy for a few days, getting stuff up, and then i accidentally misspoke in a channel that i wanted to destroy the CO to put my own one up. I mean, it was a future plan, but didn't exactly want that done /right then/. One person, we'll call him 'dude' for easy referencing, was more than eager to jump on my proposal to mini-posbash the CO. Quoting him, he was bored and wanted something to do. For payment, he said we'll talk after since he was doing it for fun but we discussed some options, one of them involving IRL pizza.

Now, while i was cahooted into this mostly, i couldn't anticipate the carnage that would ensue. I was away from the system, but we were mailing every once in a while when stuff started happening. I think he was with an alt, both battleships, in a sector in lowsec, preparing for a grueling few hours of bashing a CO. Indeed, a few hours later, i got this:

"Planet is clear although I can't guarantee it stays that way. Mail me tomorrow regarding pizza.
