Of course the playa is radioactive and filled with deadly poisons, why else would the government let us go there and have a big party. They are secretly trying to exterminate us.

My reaction to gifting has been different. On Sunday and Monday I spend a few hours washing the playa from windshields. Many people felt obligated to give me a gift in return although I never asked for any. I have received beer, bottled water, 'special' cookies, and the usual schwag. Two gifts stand...

I spent an hour or so mooping my village, found a penny, a few little sparkly things, and a few small pieces of paper which had blown in. I quit when I bent down several times to pick up something only to realise I was trying to pick uop a crack in the playa.

If you get run over by some fucktard in a golfcart the fucktard is at fault. Unfortunately you are the one who is injured. When you are out and about at night get lit up the kneecap you save may be your own.
