Re: Burning Man Tips for Shy People

Awesome post. [snip] One fun thing I've found that helps breaking your own ice is to just get out there and dance . It feels like one of the most ridiculous things to do, but you're out there, doing it. What know what is even better? Teaching a friend how to do do a dance, in public, in that random...

Meh. "Free" means "do what you want with it". "Gifting" something with conditions is not really gifting. I agree entirely.
