We've been focusing a lot on Tolle of late, so let's take a quick break from that and enjoy a little miscellany. It's healthy. The Grab Bag of random miner tears is just what the doctor ordered!
I knew it was coming, you knew it was coming... So I decided to just get the Hitler references out of the way right from the start.
I still don't see the resemblance, to be honest. Churchill, Gandhi, maybe even Caesar, but I'm certainly no fascist.
Of all the miners I feel sorry for, I feel the most sorry for miners who have never read MinerBumping dot com.
Judith OrphanKiller asserts, without any evidence, that the majority are not enthused about the New Order. Where are these statistics coming from? I want to see these statistics. If they show anything less than a majority of highsec supporting me, I want to have a look at the cross-tabs, too.
Peter XZ brings up an interesting point. I am also kind of like the James Bond of EVE, when you really think about it.
Gexcolo posits his own theory of the Code's origin. This is why miners need to stop thinking bad thoughts about the Code; it leads to all kinds of inaccuracies.
Now this is why the Code really exists. People like Hoban 'Wash'Washburne are so lost.
This guy is a walking, talking game of Miner Bingo. His comment reminds of that goofball miner who said "My identity is defined as a father, a husband, and a businessman". Sometimes I'll copy-pasta his stuff into local when miners call me a kid playing from my mother's basement. I bump from a "custom-built home office and hotels all over the United States!"
Agent BillMurray has earned plenty of accolades over the course of his acting career. But Meganium Shakra pointed out a major flaw: Anyone can add stuff to a Wikipedia page!
Meanwhile, Chrysta Sharisa developed an entirely original space lawyer argument: It's against the EULA to impersonate an actor. Bill didn't need to take any of their guff. He knows who he is. His identity is defined as an actor, a comedian, and a miner-bumper.
Ice miner omega seiffe lamented his inability to mine in peace under the new regime. That's what happens when you violate the Code. No justice, no peace.
It's true, I am a very nice person. The reason I enforce the rules is that I care about the miners' well-being. I'm not here to be the miners' friend. I am their friend, but I also have to lay down the law. Miners have many friends, but they only have one Supreme Protector.
