Acculturated https://youtu.be/G2y8Sx4B2Sk Acculturation implies that cultures merge, with the minority culture contributing to the majority culture so that a new improved culture emerges.

Re: environmentalism:

I understand your question. I would speculate many ePlayans are lower than most carbon in their life. What am proposing is that the BORG document participation carbon in detail and encourage lowering it in participants, year around. 13th principle low carbon? Yes.

I could probably fit a 5lb tank close to the nozzle, but a 20lb tank accumulator would have to be a little farther (~8 feet from the nozzle or so). Any idea if this would still work ...

you must have a ticket, or staff credential, to enter the event. I think certain LE and other government types might have some exceptions.
