Re: Top Asshats of 2011 Burning Man

I want to apologize for the angry, flippant statement I made regarding generators in this thread. It was spontaneous, and hurtful to many that rely on them for important power needs for themselves and their camps on the playa. I'm sorry that it detracted from a honest discussion about the difficulti...

Re: Top Asshats of 2011 Burning Man

Yes i did go a bit overboard on the generator rant, but some people are really selfish sociopaths(like ringing your camp with RV's, and placing the generators on the outside without baffels!) Generators are ok, if they are run for short periods and are properly baffled, but most energy needs can be ...

Re: Top Asshats of 2011 Burning Man

Those who run generators, and don't give a crap about their neighbors are complete aholes.

It's the desert, if you need ac go to the Gerlach Hilton..

I refuse to let a camp near by mine, invade our sound space with a 24/7 generator again. It will be sabotaged, trust me.

Re: E cig smokers?

Really for that week, folks should not "smoke" anything. Our lungs are hammered by the dust. So yes, an ecig would be a much better choice, and portable vapes for cannabis. Best choice? Quit smoking.

Re: Will my tent be ruined?

My "family" style 3 room tent died the second day on the playa. The poles are too flimsy, and the winds made mincemeat out of it. Now....that was the year with the SUSTAINED 70 mph winds for HOURS, that destroyed my entire camp! (3 shelters and our main dome destroyed). My friends and i holed up in ...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

RockStar Orphans, which for the last decade has supported 20-30 campers each year, so far has ZERO tickets afaik. As with most other theme camps, obviously this is untenable. Theme camps tend to fall apart if not reinvigorated each year by BM. I predict that many great large camps will never return....

Re: Do the math: over 50% of tickets went to scalpers

I disagree completely. Sure, maybe .5% of the tickets went to scalpers willing to fork out up to $390/ticket. The rest went to excited long-timers and future birgins. BM got outrageous notoriety last year after selling out, and everyone and their mother wanted to go for 2012 with all of it's prophet...
