Re: So who is still going?

Hi Fam, I was going to buy a van to make into a cabin on wheel today (been shopping a while) and it just wasn't a good fit for where I'm at. I was going to use it to head out this weekend from Chicago to camp in the desert with my daughter (and possibly my co-parent). So sorry I can't make it but I'...

Re: Burningham back up plan for 2020 or 2021

Alabama...Really? And what would burners DO there? Those home prices reflect no job market. It doesn't look like fun at all. What would the locals think? Sorry, California born and raised. Well burners would go there and burn silly :) Well since I'm not working :roll: I decided to go and drive to A...

Re: Burningham back up plan for 2020 or 2021

So I decided to play with this idea a little more because of reasons and I still think this might be a fun idea. For the price of a few tickets to BM you can buy a house like this (https://bham.craigslist.org/reo/d/birmingham-check-this-house-out/7106255339.html) or even less a house like this (http...

Re: Burningham back up plan for 2020 or 2021

Yes! We could erect The Man on the site of the old blast furnaces and make our camps on the slag piles and toxic waste dumps. (Said by a disgruntled former steelworker) I like where your mind is going but can we put the man in the middle of BirmingHam? We could all eat bacon (since bacon is vegan o...

Re: Burningham back up plan for 2020 or 2021

Yeah, nope. Not going to live in a State where women’s rights don’t count. Lucky420, reading between the lines I see you think that this plan will work but that it needs to be a state that fits similar criteria but already respects women's rights. That's reasonable, it might take a larger number of...

Burningham back up plan for 2020 or 2021

TLDR: If we don't burn in the desert, lets burn Birmingham.....for reasons like it's name sounds like Burning Man. Warning: This is the ramblings of a man with too much time on his hands...for the moment. I'm hoping that our world never really gets to this point but it definitely seems possible toda...

First of all I want to say thanks for the wonderful insight and information. It's really appreciated. When the lines are not removed from the full writing, it takes on a different context.

Hey all you seed throwers

Could one of you wise people help me? I am trying to understand the wisdom of the saying "Those who know, do not speak. Those that speak do not know" I do not see the wisdom of this saying in a truly free society; or for a truly free individual to hold in any society for that matter. While it is tru...

Re: Prostelytize Here and Only Here.

Ahhh so that's what I've done, I've ended up spontaneously teaching myself magic. They really need to put that in the manual so you know it can happen when playing this game. Or was this always supposed to be an undocumented feature that players had to unlock on their own. If so I guess it's time I ...

Be a Wise-ard, not a Wise-ars. A friend I think there is some great wisdom and Truth in this guys series. I'm really digging it.

Re: Prostelytize Here and Only Here.

Tho the tough love can lead to confusion as it inherently creates more and more rules/Religion. Then we ...

I feel I need to say this because I believe it's an important lesson that I'm not sure everyone has considered. The Good does not always triumph over the Evil. I believe I am a very positive person and love everything about this world in its own way. The belief that "Good always triumphs over evil" ...

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

Everyone deserves to go to the Burn. Everyone is allowed to burn how they want to Burn. Everyone Burns at the Burn. Be the change you want to see in the Burn and the Burn will continue to reflect the changes you wish to see in the world. If we are not liking what we see at the Burn then we need to t...
