I have severe asthma and use Advair and albuterol inhalers every day, so I was very nervous about what might happen to me at Burning Man. In addition to inhalers and good masks, I also got a prescription for prednisone from my doctor before I went, just for emergencies. So now I've been to Burning M...

Actually, I recommend you run spell check on all your messages before posting (in Word, perhaps?). It is difficult to take rants seriously when every other word is misspelled. Sorry, I have a thing for spelling. I won a spelling bee in the fourth grade and have never gotten over myself.

Nice gigantic image. It's so detailed I feel like I could almost reach into my computer monitor, grab a gnarled, hairy teat and squirt a little of that sweet albino nectar into my morning coffee.

Seriously, though...how in god's name did you get a titty photo of Barbara Bush?

Critical tits does not celebrate women, or empowerment, or freedom, or even sex. It celebrates tits. You make the choice to take your shirt off, you make the choice to ride publically.

I rode in the Critical Tits parade this year for the first time with a friend and my daughter (and our breasts were very nicely painted, if I do say so myself).

Anyone tried the soft cargo "rooftop storage system&quo

I don't have a lot of room in my van (and no racks on the roof), so for $20 I purchased a "rooftop storage system" from GI Joe's - a collapsible square bag kind o' thing that fits on the roof, rack or no, and expands to 13 cubic feet.
