Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

Say what you want, but since the rich pay the most taxes and the poor, by definition do not, who else should get the tax cuts? Certainly not those sucking off the public teat of governmental largess.

Re: my mind begins to hum...

According to Curt Gentry in the book, "The Last Days of the Late, Great State of California" the bear on the flag, which indeed became extinct in the 1920s, was actually known as Ursus horriblus Californicus. One bad ass bear I would imagine.

Re: New here

There are a number of burners from Amsterdam at Barbie Death Camp. I will send you their contact info if you're interested. Just PM me. It seems you can't swing a dead cat at Burning Man without hitting someone from The Netherlands.

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

All I have to say MDF, is our time that evening early on in the week, over a glass or three of champagne, sitting at VC and Grai's camp, was the most rewarding and positive feelings I've had in years. Hopefully that's partly what you're referring to.

Your mistake is calling it "gray water". If you say it's used for "dust abatement" then they view it completely differently.

This may not be of much use, but if you have no gear, making a sign that's easy to read with RENO on it should get you a ride out of BRC/Gerlach in nothing flat. My favorite read HOME TO MOMMA, NYC but you can always change NYC to RENO. That gives you a personality and might help you get a ride if a...

Or if there's an "Amber Alert" and some idiot 17-year-old is out screwing her boyfriend and is reported "missing" the entire place can get shut down for hours--I'm talking about eight hours--and you are hostage to the P.C. Nazis. So there really isn't any answer to that question.
