I'm liking the spanking idea more and more, but I'm a little worried about not being able to sit down the next day (I mean, there's a big difference between getting spanked on Tuesday and Saturday, you know?). I don't think a sheet cake will make it all week, and theres no way I'm going to be respon...

My birthday is Burn night, and I need ideas

I've always loved birthdays, and look forward to it each year with nearly the same anticipation I have for Burning man. This year I'm blessed to have these events overlap, and I'd like to use the opportunity to give back to my theme camp and community. And of course, draw a little attention to mysel...

from a practical matter, I understand the problems with no service. I didn't go to bm 2005, but the problem with getting hurricane katrina information out to the New Orleans burners shows that there is a case for extreme situations. But I find the lack of phones interesting. I'd LOVE to do some sort...

well, if you want to think of it that way, you should absolutely look down on any and all solar installations on the playa, as they are without a doubt less cost-effective than a diesel generator. Heck, as you point out, its probably got a larger carbon footprint too, given what goes into the produc...

people seem to be missing the heart and soul of what I'm proposing here. I understand the carbon footprint/cost/whatever make it less than perfect, but on the assumption that you'd rather have your camp, and perhaps your home, or car, or mv, or something else, powered by solar, then how do you do it...

wow, I'm a little disappointed I didn't get more snark. :wink: Swampdog, thats along the lines I was thinking of, but I'd like it to be.... I dunno, more interactive? something along the lines of "its my birthday, do something nice/odd/erotic to a passing stranger for a hug and a shot!" I'm a big fa...

oh, I forgot, the general idea I had was to set some sort of goal, say an order of 100 150watt panels. We have everyone make commitments to purchase whatever number of panels they want, no money exchanged yet. At a certain benchmark, say, 65% of the goal, they pay their money into an escrow account....

Lets start a solar power collective for next year

i've been thinking about this for awhile, I do a little business with chinese manufacturers through alibaba.com, which connects factories in foreign countries with buyers. one of the most popular products on there are pv solar panels. I love solar, but the cost is just so prohibitive to buy locally ...

I'd like to do something cool for my birthday on the 4th

(note: I'm a very long time lurker, and I went to bm in 2007) I've tried to search the eplaya, but the search function has never worked well for me. Basically, I'm pretty set as far as my camp and bike and supplies, etc, but there's one thing I haven't been able to come up with any ideas for, and th...
