a little humility

Shove it. And while you're at it, go back and read the TOS that you just signed. Remember the part about no advertising? Actually, since they're not asking to play for money, I'm not sure this counts as an ad. However, while I have no problem with a band seeking a stage to play on, I have a huge pr...

Wait a minute, can't we just solve this by changing the phase variance of the Tachyeon Beam? That seems to work for everything else.

Back to the subject at hand. Does anyone have an update on the BLM amendments? I heard that the BLM and BMOrg worked out a deal, but haven't had any confirmation. Did the letters we wrote do any good?

I doubt it's a script. If you check the timestamps on the posts there are a couple of minutes between each posting. A script would be much faster. It sounds like someone has way too much time on his hands.

You've hinted at what his anxieties are but I think you need to get him to be specific and then address them. Is he afraid you'll do drugs? fool around on him? parade nude and get hit on by smooth young boys (or girls)? show up in someone's photo gallery and embarrass him? What? When you know what i...

All of those articles you link to are just interviews in which MS marketing people claim their event is similar to Burning Man.

Am I missing something?

I'm not seeing where the BMOrg licenced anything. The Microsoft blogs simply compare their event to Burning Man (incorrectly, I might add). They're not using "Burning Man" in the event title or in their marketing. Trademark law does not give the Org the right to prevent any mention of the words "Bur...

The Moon as big as Mars this year!

That's right! This year the moon will be as big as Mars on the night of the burn. Due to a once-in-a-lifetime planetary alignment the moon will actually be 10 million miles from earth. It will be so dim that it will appear as if there is no moon at all that night! It's true!

Also, very important, is how many air holes does your perspective goggles have? If you buy a pair with a lot of air holes you can use duct tape to seal most of the holes to keep the fine dust from penetrating the goggles. Don't seal ALL the holes though because then the goggles will fog. Actually, ...
