My wallet is on fire

I spent isk today as if I suddenly hated it. My eyes are still boggling a bit since I just dropped around 300mil.

Soon, that won't even cover the ships I want to fly. For now, I think it is the most expensive buying spree I have yet had. I remember the day I got a Domi and a Noctis almost back to back and spent like 90 mil. Soon I will be posting billion purchases, I can feel it coming.

My wallet screams.

I'm down 500mil from that loan but I try not to think of it.

I wound up with 3 fully fit hurricanes. I contracted them to my corps jump freighter toon. I also had to buy a new set of sisters probes and launcher because I lost yet another covops frig today. Turns out the rats that spawned scramed her. She was fucked and could not warp out. However, I salvaged a piece of T2 salvage off the frig that covered the cost of the frig. I consider that a win in the end.

However, for the two I have lost (had a spare in the station) I've earned over a bil. So I can't actually complain. However I will anyway.

I've been reading a lot of threads on the Eve Online forums. Its great mealtime entertainment while I am chatting. These are not always productive but the 'theme of Eve' comes up a lot in the arguments for the PvP vs No-PvP crowd. One thing is about the entire loss concept of Eve.

The reason I complain about spending isk is that the isk I spent to create and fit those hurricanes is gone. I know that those hurricanes will be blown up. Probably, in rapid succession. Once they are gone they are gone. I will be tossed into space in my pod and I will attempt to escape before my pod is also destroyed. The goal is to have fun in them in the meantime. However, a lot of games don't have loss like that.

I also decided to help someone. Being the random person I am in there is a random corp chat room I hang out in. They have aquired a new member who is a nice guy and I encouraged him to apply to them. Well, they got him a set of +2 implants the other day. I felt they could have dropped more isk so I got him a +3 set and then gave him a +2 set to sell.

Just had a 'nice' day.

Plus, I'd been working and working and building isk and building isk.

The Eve work place.
