My experience is there is nowhere to escape the thump-thump of subsonic bass pulses. I've camped way out in walk-in camping and still feel it in my body. I don't think I'm overly sensitive, but the sonic aspects of BM are one of the survival challenges. I've never left there without going somewhere ...

Aaarrrgh!! I said 'vibe'. My brain is shrinking, shrinking.... Love and peace are kind of a side-effect of minimal rules.

Re: isn't it ironic, dont you think?

I have never been to BM, and I really hope to one day (unfortunately I live in Australia). From what I can tell the BM experience is like one big happy caring family. But I would have to say that I am a little dissapointed that when all you burners get back to the real world and congregate here on ...

You can't have the plans, the architect who designed the original Man specified that it be so.

You can work from the numerous pictures of the construction, but not get your mitts on the specifications.

I like to do a hit of dopamine first thing in the morning, followed with a serotonin chaser. Gets me reeeallly high, whooboy.

Don't get me going on those endorphins. Mix in a little lactic acid for that burning sensation.

So, if the conveyance has some form of engine, be it electric or combustion, it has to be registered.

Staff, DPW and human powered vehicles are exempted.

Having said that I get the impression that the criteria is going to be a bit more stringent which translates (in my mind) into the need for some serious creativity in order to pass muster.

I don't find electric golf carts so objectionable since they are usually pretty slow moving. It's the Ford pickup with a piece of wood on the nose to resemble the prow of a boat.

That's the spirit of BM. Whatever you disagree with, just insult people crudely and then flip them off.

The guy's right. Maybe he's off base with his remarks, but talk about hitting a gnat with a bazooka. Chill out already. Take a testosterone cooler or something.

A drug-fueled, drunken orgy full of crazed hippies wearing glow-in-the-dark clothes and careerning around on motorized art platforms.

They burn a giant figure in effigy while worshipping his demise. Satanistic practices mixed with paganistic rites of mortification.

Oh, and bring your own water.

There's no way the alternative energy industry can fuel civilization like oil. There is no replacement for it. It grows food, pumps water, runs cars.

Next time you are in a snowstorm, try heating your house with solar energy.
