EVE Online – Dumb Ways to Die

This video is great and, as such, has been linked or posted just about everywhere in the EVE Online universe.

But, operating on the assumption that there is, at best, an imperfect overlap between the readership of this blog and the readership of every other EVE blog or news site, I present “Dumb Ways to Die,” created by Sindel Pellion and Rixx Javix.

(direct link to the video)

It is one of those EVE Online video that everybody can enjoy.  The song is light and happy, the animations are cute, and the references to events will make even bitter vets smile.

And for those who need to be brought up to speed, the video is a parody of the train safety Dumb Way to Die public service announcement video (actual video here) and its list of horrific ways to get killed.

    Wonderful :)
    I already liked the original for its amalgam of cute and icky. But as someone who, in a universe where everybody gets super powers, would be stuck with “Superhuman slowness in learning about Internet memes”, I didn’t see this until now.

    Both thumbs up! (As long as they’re still attached to the body!)

    Though I have to admit there are one or two I didn’t get. The legs? And the one with the drake, I just couldn’t make out what that system was. English being to completely irregular-pronunciation language that it is, I’m sometimes surprised what names turns into. ;)

    @Flosch – They lyrics are in the about section on the YouTube page. The line you are referring to is,

    “Use Rahadalon as a ratting place”

    EVE is full of systems that I really have no idea how to pronounce. I used to mine in “Uosusuokko” but could never tell anybody where I was on voice.

    The legs one… not sure on that. If it were Mintchip, it would mention boobs.

    Oh, I totally missed the lyrics. It still doesn’t help me. Need to check out what the deal is with Rahadalon.

    And yeah, when it comes to system names… if you let Icelanders choose names, you’re in for trouble. It just doesn’t seem to be a very friendly language for most other people in the world. Though “Uosusuokko” always sounded Finnish to me, like some other systems in that area: Vuorassi, Funtanainen, Oimmo…

    I still find the Nullsec names with their random combinations of letters and numbers even worse though.

    Rahadolon is home to the Brave Newbies who tend to live up to that name and fling cheap frigs at you until you explode … Searching for them on youtube is a good idea too they have some really good videos there.
    I recomend a visit to Raha they are a jolly bunch … Just dont take anything you dont want to loose
