Re: Top Asshats of 2013

Yeah... it kind of sounds like "Social Justice" is a euphemism for "Mob rule".

Another term for that is Ochlocracy.

Re: Minimum Greet Lane?

I want the curmudgeon lane to be designated with a tattered gray triangle tent, lit by a dangling incandescent bulb. It should be staffed by an unmoving person with folded arms and a scowl. Next to them there should be a sign that says "Sorry! Back in:" but instead of the customary clock, it's just ...

Better than bringing a watch or carrying your phone with you... don't. Time is an illusion (lunchtime doubly so). Escaping that man-made construct can be a truly wonderful thing, and it only comes after you spend a few days not wearing any kind of timekeeping device. It's morning, it's afternoon, i...

I had three planned things. Made the other two, but missed the M&G. My camp brought a mutant vehicle this year, which ate up (pleasantly) a lot of time and resources. Do over? Nipple?

Re: law enforcement 2013

I think a couple hundred cars over the course of a couple months at 70mph, carrying mostly occupants or light loads is a hard comparison to 20,000+ cars/RVs/Semis carrying the mass of Burning Man in the front door at 5-30mph. Im on Nipples side on that. Through out the year on Playa there could be ...

Just the one that came with cinnamon candy. Is the speed responsible for the condition of the roads, though? On the "playa roads" in the deep playa (you would not drive them during BM) people go 70mph. I think a couple hundred cars over the course of a couple months at 70mph, carrying mostly occupan...

And it's the first year that I saw everybody go 5mph on the gate road. Which was absolutely wonderful! Not only did it make my job at gate much safer, it also left the roads intact for exodus. I remember years where exodus was a horribly bumpy ride because all the cars speeding had turned gate road...

What really pissed me off about those big lit up camps like MASH and Playawaste Raiders, is that it ruined my ability slink by with a gallon of urine in my hand under cover of darkness.
