What goes up must come down

Staggering out of my bunk room, I stumbled my way towards my hanger... 'anti' pirates looked upon me in disgust, not knowing my true intentions. I wasn't drunk, I don't drink; I just like to look like my fellow pirates who do drink... After entering my hanger, I looked upon my small fleet of ships, I was going to go can flipping today, since I wouldn't be able to do it for much longer. My eyes fell upon my vexor, and I saw goodness. Before getting prepped, I had to get my ship companion, a fellow pirate likes horses.. but they smell. Realizing that I had no exotic dancers (trade items\live stock) I went for the next best thing: my meat locker. It took me awhile to drag the frozen corpse of TallyRaya to my bridge, but I finally did and buckled us both in (I think I need to turn down the freezer temp, he doesn't look too good).

After entering a suitable system for flipping, I was noticed my comm console blinking... Who could that be? It was Alenas Mcnabb, a noob who I had tried to gank in my incursus vs. his caracal. I had warped out with damage to my hull, this conversation followed shortly after:

[ 2008.09.01 19:08:57 ] Alenas mcnabb > coward faggot
[ 2008.09.01 19:09:10 ] Lanissum > want to finish this?
[ 2008.09.01 19:09:14 ] Lanissum > meet me at planet 4
[ 2008.09.01 19:09:24 ] Alenas mcnabb > only with you
[ 2008.09.01 19:09:31 ] Lanissum > hmm
[ 2008.09.01 19:09:44 ] Lanissum > if you'll let me get my cruiser, i'll do a 1v1 with you
[ 2008.09.01 19:10:02 ] Lanissum > fair enough?
[ 2008.09.01 19:10:06 ] TwiceDAsiZe > with who?
[ 2008.09.01 19:10:14 ] Lanissum > this guy, alenas
[ 2008.09.01 19:11:08 ] Lanissum > you up for that alenas?
[ 2008.09.01 19:11:42 ] Alenas mcnabb > lol if i new i coujld trust you faggot i might but your a coward and will bring freinds
[ 2008.09.01 19:12:23 ] Lanissum > tell you what, I'll kick twice, you find a nice safe spot-- unwarpable object- only us in the fleet, no others can interrupt our 1v1
[ 2008.09.01 19:14:05 ] Lanissum > is that good?
[ 2008.09.01 19:15:12 ] Alenas mcnabb > hmm what ship you use?
[ 2008.09.01 19:15:20 ] Lanissum > vexor, t1
[ 2008.09.01 19:19:06 ] Lanissum > I got 3 min left on my gcc
[ 2008.09.01 19:20:43 ] Lanissum > just 1 more minute, you up for it?
[ 2008.09.01 19:22:19 ] Alenas mcnabb > il take you down later when we have equil ships
[ 2008.09.01 19:22:23 ] Lanissum > if you want more security, we can fight on a gate (I take your can, you fire first shot, n1 can interrupt w/o guns shooting them)
[ 2008.09.01 19:22:34 ] Lanissum > Equal? vexor is a cruiser

Noticing that this person was in local, I opened of the convo.

[ 2008.09.01 20:52:55 ] Lanissum > do you want something?
[ 2008.09.01 20:53:26 ] Alenas mcnabb > you'll find out soon enugh
[ 2008.09.01 20:53:33 ] Lanissum > oooh, i'm scared now
[ 2008.09.01 20:53:48 ] Lanissum > you still want that 1v1?
[ 2008.09.01 20:53:49 ] Alenas mcnabb > lol indeed you should be mother f***** your goona die

Hmm.. I grow weary of empty threats and snobbery; let us find this person and destroy them! I snarled to TallyRaya, my loyal corpse (he looked a bit wet). So, I warped to planet 7, and proceeded to goad him into fighting me.. It took awhile for him to work up his courage, but he did eventually fight.

Caracal Vs Vexor

After this, he was *much* nicer to me, almost a sycophant really. He even asked for his loot back! Well, I gave some of it back, about 10km off of a station.

Osprey Vs Vexor

So, after this, he brought in some of his buddies, in a Raven Navy Issue and a Hyperion... to 'deal' with me. So, were all at a planet (except Alenas Mcnabb, who probably had enough of me today) flying around; I'm sizing up my *potential* oponents, one of them is about 6 or 7 months old... I *might* be able to take him on. I told them that I was going to refit my ship and be right back, I threw on a ship scanner (if he didn't have a scambler etc... I'd have given it a go) but when I warped back... nothing. Except a convo by their 'leader' Hockshi Nvek.

[ 2008.09.01 22:25:59 ] Lanissum > nothing, just seems like you want a fight, and I might be able to give it
[ 2008.09.01 22:26:57 ] Hokshi Nvekk > Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't you just destroy a ship belonging to one of my Corp members?

[ 2008.09.01 22:33:11 ] Lanissum > you got 1 minute to show up, or I declare you a coward
[ 2008.09.01 22:33:57 ] Hokshi Nvekk > Declare all you like. all pirates are cowards including you (especially Gallente).
[ 2008.09.01 22:34:02 ] Lanissum > me?
[ 2008.09.01 22:34:10 ] Lanissum > i'm the one sitting here, waiting for you to attack
[ 2008.09.01 22:34:59 ] Hokshi Nvekk > You had ample opportunity before but didn't fire. What's up hoping concord will do your dirty work?
[ 2008.09.01 22:35:37 ] Lanissum > No, i droped a can, you didn't take it
[ 2008.09.01 22:35:55 ] Hokshi Nvekk > Lol didn't see it :)
[ 2008.09.01 22:36:07 ] Lanissum > at the station, I still have one out
[ 2008.09.01 22:36:23 ] Hokshi Nvekk > Unless one of the others picked it up.
[ 2008.09.01 22:36:47 ] Lanissum > beats me, I'm leaving; since your obviusly not going to fight
[ 2008.09.01 22:37:01 ] Hokshi Nvekk > o/
[ 2008.09.01 22:37:02 ] Lanissum > with like 5 mil loot

Bored after waiting about half an hour for nothing... I begin my trip home and enter a new system... only to be blown out of the sky by the police... ugh. I make my way home (in my pod) and throw together a thorax and fly around for awhile, and eventually nail a cormarant.
A few minutes later, the same guy comes back in a black bird, to the same belt.. I smell trap; but a friend went in first and I followed shortly (when I didn't hear 'omg, rapier; its a trapz!')...

blackbird

A short while later, 12 million isk randomly popped into my wallet; a little investigation revealed that someone had bought a 12m isk shuttle from me 0_o... Must be my lucky day.

I don't know of any places which are a 'hub' for idiots; but if you fly around long enough, I'm sure you'll find some worthy of the title.
