Re: Does Radical Inclusion equal Racial Inclusion?

“I can do very little to influence how people treat you. I wish I could.” This is complacency. Why don’t you (1) ask how you can help influence how people treat others or (2) research how you can help influence people? Instead of assuming you can’t? Members of any majority population are often the ...

Re: Fireproofing Shade Sturctures

Isn’t thermite an aluminum + Fe2O3 anaerobic combustion where the Al steals the oxygen out of the rust and you end up with a bunch of Iron and Al2O3 powder?

That’s exactly the kind of thing that’s perfect for the playa.

BTW, it is insanely bright when it burns ...

So far my searching indicates that Aluminet is not fire retardant... Don't want to light mine on fire to confirm. Does anyone have insights?
Not only is it not fire retardant in any way, HDPE is classified as highly flammable.

Aluminet is aluminized thin-film HDPE, woven into a cloth.

The event needs to be made much MORE difficult to attend, to reduce the demand and weed out the spectators.
Then the tickets supply problem goes away.
That’s easy.

Make 447 access a full strip search with “The Glove” at Nixon and only other road in via Jungo.

That would be loads of fun!

If you have a specific need to keep something frozen for 5 days, and don’t open the cooler daily, yes, it works.
