Respond to the following questions to the best of your ability.

A.  A sovereignty structure is being attacked by a small gang during off hours, and you want to delay the entosis until more friends can log in.  What ship do you use, and how do you do it? Kitey Bullshit Orthrus...keep killing the entosis pilots.

B.  You are in a kiting gang and are fighting a kitchen sink.  FC orders you to burn to a celestial and follow primaries.  You fuck up and get scrambled by an Atron.  What do you do? Kill the atron or die.

C.  You get home from work, log in to EVE and Teamspeak.  There is a large group of people in a PvP channel, and are in battle comms when you join the channel.  You want in, but don't know what they're in or where they're at.  What do you do? Join fleet and use fleet chat to find the fleet location and doctrine.  Sometimes the motd has all the information you need. If they are too far out and I would not be able to catch up, I would leave fleet.

D.  You jump into a system and spot a Vexor Navy Issue on scan.  There are only two in local, including yourself.  How do you determine if the VNI is active in space, doing PvE, and what type of damage to shoot him with?
I would dscan for rat wrecks..Usually the VNI Pilot fits his ship for the rats, I would determine which rats they were killing and use the opposite damage type, or just hope they didn't fill the resist hole and use that damage type.

E.  A hostile is trash talking in local and you want to respond.  You open fire with your best line of smack talk.  What do you say? Your mama was a snowblower! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJHzyg9AOsY)

F.  Your gang has a target tackled, and an over eager fleetmate in a Command Destroyer MJDs it away without thinking.  The target gets out.  Your fleetmate is Canadian and probably high.  How do you respond? Jeez M8, Take it easy on the Maple Syrup!

G.  A corpmate is talking about a movie, and you realize you absolutely hate that film.  What film is it, why is it awful and what insult do you deliver to your corpmate? My little pony: The movie.  That is the worst damn movie ever! Everyone knows that you can't beat the Smooze with friendship!  T2 blasters maybe, but not friendship.

Extra Credit: If you're pretty sure you fucked up this application and are scrambling for something of value to sell about yourself, provide a picture, video or audio recording of yourself or something you've done that is funny or creative.  Bonus consideration for custom submissions made specifically for this application.

Attached Photo:

Here is the story.  My blind father-in-law heard that I was wanting to get my hair cut while we visited him one day.  He assured me that he had the best barber around and that he does a great job, so we hop in the van and away we go.  We get to the barber (its in a small home in a farming community) and I walk dad in to the shop.  He has me sit down and he asks how I want my hair cut.  I tell him use a #4 all over.  At the same time, my father in law jokingly shouts, "Give him a Bulldog!" 

I thought things were going well until I felt the top of my head and noticed how much hair was falling down from my head.  After the barber is done, we walk to the car and I exclaim that I had been scalped.  To my exclamation, my fater-in-law replied, " I don't know what you are complaining about, it looks great to me!"

I lost it. 

The photo was taken to send to my wife, so that she could see how bad it was.

Both of my grandparents are blind, so I've heard my share of blind folks not "seeing" the problem jokes, but that story is freaking hilarious, thanks for sharing!

In the scrammed-by-Atron question you suggested you would kill the Atron or die. What if you were in an Oracle or similar and couldn't track the Atron? Would you just die? Even if you were like half our gang's DPS?

Ok, so an Atron is going to be on top of me no matter what, and tracking would absolutely be an issue.  I would have to have help from the rest of the fleet and would let them know that I have been tackled and hope the atron gets blapped.

Django, Thor, and I have all known Louhbo for a while.  I expect much hazing from other members for his love of gatecamping, but trust me when I say that Louhbo and the old SOUND veterans (most of whom don't play anymore) turned it into an art.

Hi. The Claw is not a fleet interceptor.

Your Thorax fit is the worst way you could have answered the question. Hint: to increase EHP, there's armor, there's shield and there's [...] tank. Fill in the blanks. You can use crayons if you want.

Altaen already mentioned the one question you got wrong.

The rest looks ok. Gate camping does not prepare you for our type of pvp, but it's a valid hobby and at least you seem to be fitting your ships right.

edit: also your granpa reminds me of Toph from Avatar.

The same things that I had going for me Louhbo has going for him but more.  He has much more skills and experience.  He also that he was vetted by XavierVE, so he was learning from the best.  And he goes back much farther than Old Spacemen, back to Sound, which is going much farther back with those guys than I do.

9/10 I say let him come.  Not 10/10 because he forgot to mention me.  :P
