Re: Now that the lottery failed ... here is a suggestion

From what I understand, this one is the deal breaker. Wait times are projected to be long enough to back the traffic up to 447, which would cause a major safety issue, which could make the BLM lower the event cap. I haven't heard from anyone who works Gayte that thinks this would be easy. Also, you...

Re: Why three circles?

I can't believe I came to you people with a perfectly dumb question and you give me snark of all things in response. Maybe I should've opened with "Hi, I'm writing a research paper on Burning Man for school and I need to know...", then maybe you all would've been cooperative. Yeah, no, but really, y...

Why three circles?

Okay, E-playans, so flame me if you've heard this one before, but swear for the life of me I've asked every real life person I can and google'd it till my fingers hurt, but still have yet to find an answer. Since my first Burn four years ago, I was told that once the Man falls, the fashionable thing...

No taboos, so long as the stick suit doesn't involve a shirt and no pants.

Though I can't decide if shirtstickcocking is better or worse than regular shirtcocking.

Harder to say in any case.

I may or may not have been hesitant to try mushrooms and I may or may not have ended up greatly regretting that decision that I may or may not have made when the paranoia that may or may not have set in after I may or may not have eaten the mushrooms. -I may or may not have decided to have messed w...

And there's nothing supernatural about the Man. Just lumber and neon. Please don't turn him into a deity. It's just a symbol. You chose the symbolism. But please, no god stuff. "per·son·i·fi·ca·tion –noun 1. the attribution of a personal nature or character to inanimate objects or abstract n...

Re: Questions re: set-up

Also... do you think the additional tarp rig-up from the vehicle is overkill? Maybe we should just put our tent under the NorthPole structure? The first year we brought the NorthPole structure we fit two tents in there and still had some room left over for a common area. So yeah, unless you were ho...

My theory is Burning Man will eventually degrade into a series of pointless, esoteric online conversations.

I'm a lifelong insomniac that hates earplugs. Any potential gains from the noise reduction are offset by the discomfort of having two foreign objects shoved deep inside my ear canals. Melatonin use to work really well for me until I read somewhere that it was just a placebo effect. It then immediate...
