Port Authority is an assassination in the sequence thirteen's Bonfire of Vanities. The eagle strike is done from the nearby viewpoint. Start off by assassinating the two posted guards by the stairs to the port. You'll need one of them to lure with so I throw one of them down into the water and the other at a certain place right next to a building. Then I climb up and get the attention of an archer. I climb up to a higher roof and get in open conflict using a throwing knife (if I was detected on the same roof level I would have desynchronized since stealth is a requirement in this mission. However, thanks to the "already exposed" exploit I don't have to worry about failing the mission as long as I'm still exposed). Now in open conflict, I rush into the port area and onto the ship where I take out a couple of guards to make this easier. Now that the target is chasing after me I lead him to the spot where I left the dead body and escape his detection. He notices the dead body and stays in that spot. Then I climb up the viewpoint, hang by the edge and perform a side jump. I grasp the ledge of the building and lock onto the target. Even though I'm tapping the attack button the air assassination isn't that fast (probably because Ezio is hanging by his arms).

Accidental Deaths: Here are two cases in which the target might accidentally die.
1. When he is jumping off the ship and onto the port area. This is probably affected by how many other guards there are since they bump into each other in such small spaces.
2. When he leaves the port area he makes a small jump. This could also cause him to fall into the water.

Another Accident: This happened while I was recording, so I thought it was worth showing. I manage to kill all the guards on the ship and get the No Hitter achievement. The target flees as a result.

You never go out or something? Like, with friends? Never go to a birthday and have a drink?

Well yeah, obviously. But not everyday. What I described was what happens monday through friday. Sometimes on fridays, I might go out with someone. Saturdays are the days that I go out most often.

But I'm still too poor to afford my own car, so I have to depend on my friends to do the running around work.

And this has really gotten off-topic.

The only thing I do is work, game, eat, sleep. In that order most days.

Well, I spend way too much time gaming, so obviously I don't really have much else to do. So the answer would be mostly no.
