He whipped out his huge "Burner longer than you" privilege and rubbed his swollen entitlement all over you.

Shit, I need two different burn permits for that, and I gotta call the damn burn line to make sure the air quality board is kind enough to to let me light a match.

Re: CoVid-19 and the 2021 Burning Man Event

Seems to me that many burners may be saying to themselves, "They canceled Burning Man this year. What are we going to do? I miss Burning Man!" Now who is "they"? Maybe many of these people are consumers of the Burning Man event, like the local state fair or something. On the other hand, many of us ...

Re: Burners & the Pyramid Lake Paiutes: Time to Renew Respect

What I really want to know is if Paiute is already plural and adding the “s” is superfluous.

Just to be extra pedantic here ... Efficacy is a property of the vaccine itself. It doesn’t change over time. Effectiveness is a property of the population.

It would be a mighty experiment in culture for the BORG to just open up pre-registration for tickets and actually know how much demand there is.
