Re: Keep it simple

I have a question for you (or anyone who's used the vacuumed sealed bags) - have you ever had any break in your cooler? I assume they're extremely sturdy w/ the chance of that being minimal. I'm a little cautious only because I haven't used them before and I'd hate for one to bust in the cooler lea...

The only thing I wouldn't make again was pasta w/ sausage. Even though I undercooked the pasta, it still tasted very mushy when reheated. If I made it again, I'd just bring it out and make it on the playa since it's so easy. The trick with pasta is to par-boil it very al dente and keep it separate ...

Constructive ways to reduce LEO; change the fucking laws. Be active in the political process. Educate people. Remembe...

Burners have varied levels of experience deaing with bad drug experiences, but even that doesn't mean much if you yourself aren't in good condition. The Rangers have an ethic that "all rangers must share the same reality" by staying sober on duty, so if you and your friend are sharing radically diff...

I'm glad to see someone try to start a non-inflammatory thread. Every one I've seen so far tends to drift into "it's a police state" vs. "the police only catch guilty people" argument that seems a little polarizing to me. I hope we don't drift. I would say that the good people of eplaya and outside ...

Hee, hormel sells this in plastic bags that don't go bad until you open them for a fraction of the price that are playa-terrific and sold at costco (a bit thin though). Though the can is priceless.

Getting dosed sucks. Some advice, though, if it happens to someone you are with is to be a good trip captain to your friend first and worry about the asshole that dosed her later (and of course, making sure they get some medical attention as necessary). I know it seems weird to say, but what may be ...

Y'know, everytime law enforcement comes up, I see these conversations go to the polar opposites, it's always: "It's a police state" vs. "Only guilty people get busted." The truth has always been somewhere in the middle. If you do the crime, you can expect to pay the price just like in the default wo...

My question is, why is it always the OLD men that go naked? I saw hundreds of them wandering naked (and alone) this year. Though I wouldn't show my shrivelled ancient ass on the playa (it's not neighborly to burn out the backs of people's retinas with that kind of ugly), there's a difference betwee...

The democratic process of the camps I've been in go down several roads, in descending order of adoption: 1) We're going back to the playa! Get the shit out of storage. 2) Fuck the theme. 3) Elaborate idea for a theme camp that will inevitably fail. 4) Let's organize a camp that strangely seems to be...

How does Burning Man not offer the best basic tool an entreprenuer needs?
