Re: Is disposal of H20 + biodegradable soap on playa MOOP?

Ridiculous objection to an innocuous rule. Try again. You talking to your self again Bob? Or who? Whom. The OP seems to be arguing about simple established rules, based on his feeble objections to the methods and reasons given. If I have enough water for washing dishes, I also spread my cooler wate...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

Will Pershing County's legal team point to this incident as a reason for which they need to raise their fees from $180,000 in 2012 to $400,000 in 2013?

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

I agree 100%, Snow. I'm fascinated with how life on the playa is so conducive to finding truth. In this particular instance, the motives of the law enforcement agencies that patrol BRC are undeniably oriented towards generating revenue. I don't really mind if Pershing County/ Washoe County writes th...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

@omgrey No time to answer my questions. Interesting. My rapist won't respond to the accusations either . He just hides behind "I would never do that," and refuses to speak to the events. By using the word "either", are you making a subtle suggestion that you'd like the opportuni...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

@omgrey I apologize as I do not have the time to answer all of the questions in your response to me. If you don't think due process is a fair system that *works*, then perhaps you should move to a country where it is not one of your protected rights and see how safe you feel. I'm not in a position t...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

I agree, bringing a crime lab to the playa seems to fall out of the participants' means of contributing to the event. However, it seems perfectly reasonable to accept that it's also out of BMORG's or county law enforcement's means as well. It's a legal/conceptual issue, not a logistical issue. If DN...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

(...) Remember, as a culture, we think that "actual rapists" go to jail. They don't. That's reality. This is not about prosecuting an "innocent" man; this is about protecting women from violence. So, tell me, is it worth someone's reputation to be slightly (and I mean slightly) ...

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

I agree that it should be made feasible.

addendum: Based on what Joseph has told us, it sounds like this would require revisions to legislation, which can take years. For 2013, BMORG should consider more immediate solutions for facilitating transportation to and from the facility in Reno.

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

As to rape kits on the playa-- there has been a great resistance to having them on the playa. It's not a fair representation to say there has been "resistance" to having rape kits on playa since that implies that the Burning Man organization itself is resisting the concept, which is untru...

With all of the resources available (and the massive Pershing County law enforcement budget), I find it incomprehens...

I'm without the card that I used to purchase my STEP ticket.

I had to cancel the card I used to purchase my STEP ticket due to suspicious activity. The banker told me he needed to take the physical card in order for me to get a temporary card. My name is on the STEP billing info and I have my valid CA ID, so I should be fine right? On the STEP ticket Q&A,...

Damaged tent poles - pole repair set or replace altogether

The shock cord (elastic cord) of 3 out of 4 of my tent poles has snapped. Also, some of the ferrules have become warped from camping in windy places. In the past, I successfully repaired the poles of my other tent (a 3-person tent, which I still own and will bring to BM as a backup). However, I'd li...

Re: Driving from Southern California

Anyone done the detour through hawthorne/schurz recently? I'm thinking of trying that this year. I notice that the BM website recommends not doing that. I got a speeding ticket for going 58 in a 45 zone in Hawthorne last year. The speed limit had been 70 on the highway, and the limit was decreasing...

Last year I brought running shoes and combat boots. Much to my surprise, the running shoes were the most comfortable option and I wore them 90% of the week. However, I've come to understand that the playa surface was particularly firm last year. If the playa surface is particularly powdery and britt...
