Disabled or Sufferng with Body Issues at Burning Man

I was wondering this, and have been for sometime... Do people feel more generally accepted at Burning Man more so than they do in everyday life or simply less aware of it at the event? After attending Burning Man for 10 years, I decided I hated it a couple years ago. I was riding my bike around feel...

Re: post what you didn't like about 2011 here

Entitlement seems to be more of an issue. It is no longer the gift economy, but people assume everything is up for grabs. "Hey, maaaaaaaaaan, it's BURNING MAN." I had an argument with a nearby camp when I caught not one but three people sneaking into my Coleman Shower tent to shower...Then...

Re: Burning Man Research

If you haven't found anything, then I fear for your project. There is several analytical books written on Burning Man. It has come as a focus of many anthropologists in the last several years, and there have been several scholarly articles written about the various aspects of the festival. Look hard...

Looking for the Man down on Burn Night on Art Car

He was really out of it and experiencing chest pain and was taken away by an ambulance. Due to the dust storm and his conditions he could not communicate much. ...

Re: Black Rock City is in N. Paiute Territory

My question is why the Org doesnt put dumpsters along exodus to maybe alleviate some of this. That's an excellent question. I also think it's time for them to start providing dumpsters at the event. I'd pay extra for the ticket for that service. And I doubt it would be any more or less against the ...

Over your head. It's funny how you guys try to dig deeper but always seem to dig around the main point of things. It's fascinating. I hope it's just to be irritating. The quote is actually borrowed for the article from George Lakoff, a Professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics.
