    Re: Nerd Nightmare

    Eve Online is crazy. It's super cutthroat and some people take it really seriously. I personally have never played it, but I used to work with a guy who was into it. It always seemed like a lot of work.

    This is a good read about similar stuff. 2 of the 7 examples are from Eve Online:

    I can't believe the geek didn't have his craft insured.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Some of that stuff reminds me of my son. He spends half of his gaming time jacking around trying to get places you aren't suppose to get to, and doing things you're not supposed to be able to do. If you can imagine an online match with six guys repeatedly jumping off a building ledge for an hour straight, you get the idea.

    Did you ever play Crackdown with him? That was one of the best sandbox games of this generation. It was so much fun to just goof around and see what you could do. Grab a dumpster, line it with remote mines, then bury it under a pile of cars, trucks and explosive barrels. Get your partner to drive his car at the pile full speed, and then hit it with a rocket just as he makes impact. It was awesome just to try to see what you could accomplish. it was quite a lot.

    Some of these guys would infiltrate other clans and establish themselves as moles...or better yet #1, setting himself up as a bank. ******* GENIUS!!! I don't think I would have the patience for something like that.
