I took ygmir's advice to heart and found it works like a hot damn! When you visit the JOTS for a #2, take sufficient 1-ply ass wipe for the job and a zip lock bag with 3 baby wipes. The first baby wipe is for the door handles and seat upon entering. The second is for your ass and dangly bits after ...

I polish my leather shoes and boots. Modest, I know, something everyone used to do. Now a days common practice is trashing the dinged up leather and buying new. My wardrobe is probably 30% thrift. Again, modest, but more than the average. 5 years of my life was spent buying almost nothing except foo...

People today are way too germ phobic, primarily caused by all the billions of dollars in advertising by companies selling all those sanitizing products to clean your home and bathroom. The under-reported side effects of using all these products is that it tends to create super-germs as only those g...

eewwww I have no problem with the potty seat after all it's just my thighs/ass that touch that. The door handle is quite different-say someone before you wiped but got (microscopic) poop on their hand and didn't notice it. They then grab the door handle and exit. You go in next and touch that handl...

Door handles? Huh. I guess I'm a pretty dirty hippie. Actually, I don't like baby wipes unless I must, they irritate my tender bits. I spritz. I think the trick is to dry wipe/pat with TP after the final wet wipe. I notice they can kind of give a heat rash sort of prickle if just left wet. I'm not ...

Thanks to all who replied. Mostsky, you cleared up my confusion completely. Makes sense now that I know that there's a whole vetting process involved between shit-sucking and shit-delivery. Drawing on my past experience, it seems like slit latrines could really be a viable option, but I'm not used t...

I pretty much agree with what you said, except for: he started something i love, I think that various people contributed hugely to the shape of the burn, and the focus on Harvey loses that history. Reminds me of Jerry Garcia (Yeah, I know, when you're done throwing rocks at me for that one, read on...

Isn't that hot linking? Yeah, I know I'm a mod, doesn't mean I have IT skills. Linking to an image or embedding the page they give you is usually ok, because you're leading people to the site that hosts the image.

Virgin with a MOOP question here: What's with the 2-ply only, no flush-able wipes/tampons etc? I know the ethic and the tips, I've been reading all about BM for a couple weeks now and this is one thing I don't understand. The reason being that I go to a lot of music fests with biffies and the system...

I did a bit of research, and it appears that it's ANTIPERSPIRANTS that clog and close your pores. The body needs to sweat to work correctly and clogging up the pores will cause light headedness if you can't sweat during exercise. DEODORANT does not have aluminum in it, and allows you to sweat, but ...

Re: 2011 PLAYA Rainforest Jungle Party

As of now JUST AN IDEA.....but tell me what you think. A 50x50 platform. Screw in maybe 80 "tree posts" and create a rainforest jungle IN THE PLAYA. It would have speakers in the trees playing bird and jungle sounds. Also, a section where you can climb up and swing from tree to tree. In the center ...

So my plan to make an ongoing installation out of bits of other people's art I've stolen throughout the week is a bad idea? It's actually a great idea. Your art includes stealing. Their art includes beating theives to a pulp. Win-Win, as far as I can tell. Dammit, I'm going to have to rethink this....

Go to your profile and un-check "Disable BBCode" to get the embedding of quotes right. There isn't a disable BBCode, just a "Always allow BBCode" which I had checked yes but had to go and recheck yes. We'll see with this reply if it works. It works.

Hi, Looking forward to next year. There's a small group of us who are beginning our planning now for our first burn. As others have remarked, I think Rites of Passage is ideal for a bunch of virgins making this their first burn. I've been aware of and wanting to go to Burning Man since 97/98 but by ...
