Re: TastyBite coupon

[quote="DoctorIknow"]The TastyBite company said I could distribute a 10% discount code, good 'till end of year: TB39TEN Even with shipping, it may be cheaper than TraderJoes, and there is certainly more variety and most grocery stores never have more than a few on the shelves anyway.[/quote] Awesome...

I'm looking forward to my first burn this year, and since I've always been a vegetarian I don't have to worry about craving dead things once I get there. I'm chiming in to note that some of the powdered meal replacements these days are pretty good; I really like Vega, especially in a soy milk or tha...

For what it's worth, every lawsuit has a lot more of a story than can comfortably fit into a blurb on a news site. Some which sound warranted are in fact completely spurious when you learn the details, whereas some which sound stupid actually make a ton of sense once you get into it. The famous McDo...

As has been said, there are a lot of great resources online for this, and generally people who play with fire are willing to show you how in person. Two things, though: wear natural fibers, not polyester. Burning plastic attached to you = bad. Second, making your own fire toys is easy and lets you r...

I think an obstacle course would be really cool, although I'm a newbie around here so I'm probably not considering all the relevant complications. I will say that you can make some decent hurdles and crawl-under areas out of simple PVC, and if you don't actually glue it together then it generally do...

Good lord, does my ethnicity show through the internet? Was it perhaps the well-ordered first post that demonstrated I am German/Norweigan? Very well, Herschel it is. Any man who can discover infrared radiation is alright by me, and I bet wooden shoes are pretty comfortable, once you get used to the...

Getting ready for my first time

Never thought I'd be posting that topic on a forum. Anyway, I'm getting ready to come to my first Burning Man in 2009, along with a bunch of other virgins and some 2nd-timers. We're trying to read as much of the forum and FAQs as we can, and doing a lot of planning now, in the hopes of being a littl...
