Who knows, if I go to (the Greek version of) college it will get postponed even more!

I currently haz 165 lolnut pearls so I'm assuming I'll make it (considering it's more than a month until the event ends and I need 21 more dailies). I'm not really interested in the Corvette, I'm just getting it in case there's an accolade with it...

err...the flying high mission only goes for 35 days, and you need 25 days worth of pearls to get the ship, so if you still need 21 more daily runs, you're not going to be able to get it unless you make up the difference with lobi

Gah really? Well I hope it doesn't give an accolade then...

Well, you could waste away a few keys. Open some boxes just for the Lobi. Trade in 5 Lobi for a box of lolnut pearls. Keep doing it until that armed cruise ship is yours. Problem solved!

Keys are expensive...

Also, it seems that I'm only one day behind for the Corvette (if my crappy calculations are correct). It would appear that I left just long enough to not get the Corvette...

The cooldown is 18 hours. If you got on every 18 hours, you would have enough time.

And the Forbes Article. YES! This made Forbes!:

Let me get this straight. In EVE, you buy ships you can LOSE... permanently? And someone paid $9,000 on one of these things?

Can you imagine the uproar if you had to buy a Scimitar every time you lost it?

Yes. I mean I'm pretty sure you remember the uproar over the Odyssey and Bortasqu' packs. I imagine having to replace those ships everytime you lost them would cause those people to actually leave the game. I know I certainly would.
