How noob can you go

"Yes," said the skull. "Quit while you're a head, that's what I say."
-- (Terry Pratchett, Soul Music)

Bombing around Eifer in my Rifter, I had tackled a Drake earlier for the M34N crew and ransomed the pod for a few hundred milllion, so things were looking rosy.

Later on a small gang were camping the Emolgranlan gate and I tried to draw the Wolf off the gate, eventually he started to close the distance so I warp to 100km off the gate, so as his friends couldn't get a warpin to him and spoil the fun...

Can you guess the Facepalm?

... I agress the Wolf, in full sight and range of sentries :FACEPALM:

I warp my pod out and offer a 1v1 to the Wolf with a new Rifter which would take me a minute to fit but nothing in local is uttered, so I warp to Gusandall gate to get another Rifter, land, there's a Hurricane just landed as I jump through the gate...

... And I'm in the station, sans implants and a hefty cloning bill :FACEPALM:

Not sure I understand (how you got podded,) you still had an aggression timer or you didn't jump-on-contact or you unfortuitously landed out of jump range from the gate or you were semi-afk?

I guess session change timer, i once almost lost a set of snakes because i forgot it and could not dock.
But luckily the guy in the rupture assumed i could dock had he yellowboxed me as he later told when i informed him of my inability to do so from a safespot :)
