Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

You’re all proving my point. Not even close. You’re arguing over whether it’s art or not, and what else to do to expand on it, etc. More like, what can possibly be done with it. One of the biggest complaints about it was the lines to get in it. No shit sherlock. With lines to get into BRC, out of B...

Re: I made a Lag Bolt Hand Crank Tool!

Would it have enough leverage to do the work on a long and/or thick bolt, and in the soil where the impact drivers start to run out of oomph?

With that Coroplast construction I'm pretty sure I can work out putting headers on an extension of the straight-through layers for a water-to-air heat exchanger.

So it didn't make it all the way North to the airport? But wow it sure moved.

Look at how the footprints broke through the soil crust.
I hope they make sure all of the tire tracks upstream of it get smoothed over so they can't end up channelling any water into flowing into there.
