Woo hoo! Now I'm feeling a warm glow of fuzziness. Everyone wins! Mass group hugs at the Piss Clear RV next year...

Sam I must say I'm looking forward to seeing your stuff.

Woah, Halcyon, have you been doing this a number of years now? I think we got a hug from you in 2001 and it was the best! Your technique is amazing! *wink*

But every single year the rangers themselves tell the first five(?) rows to sit down. When you get there early, the rangers will warn you not to keep your bike with you, and warn you that you're gonna be sitting. At this point, that should be everyone's expectation. If we took a poll, I think more p...

Now now, Adrian, Sam's proven himself to be non-clueless in other threads. I'm still mellow enough from the burn to want to see everyone get along. Share the love! You tweaked him with the ad, and so now he's good and tweaked -- but he'll come around, I'm sure. Thanks for the kind words earlier, and...

e-playa's very own bradtem (behind this year's phone booth and the Save The Man protestors) is very famous in some circles. Here's why: http://www.templetons.com/brad/ Similarly, a lot of famous dot-commers made the pilgrimage a few years ago; a friend of mine spent one pre-burn Saturday hanging out...

It's not art. It's not a joke. It's not funny. A chacun son gout. I find them funny, because they're so out of context. I suspect in real life if the ad agencies saw these they'd blow a gasket, because brand managers hate to see their brands out of the carefully controlled contexts that they usuall...

A lot of this is about expectations. For both burns, I'm with groups that arrive early, and we always avoid the easiest location. For the Man burn, pick an obscure spot, like 11 or 1. For the Temple burn, try the back. The crowds are less thick, and the people are happier and more cooperative with e...

But they're fake ads. Are fake cigarettes actually cigarettes? I don't think so. None of the companies involved have any idea that their logos are being used in Piss Clear. Adrian and his staff just make up these ads to tweak people. You may not find the joke funny, but it's supposed to be a joke. I...

The Piss Clear ads are fakes, and they're in there every year. Don't believe me? Go to http://www.pissclear.org/ Adrian mentions on the front page, "On this site, you will find practically every article that has ever been published in PISS CLEAR over the years, along with a gallery of all our covers...

Oh, and by your silence on the trash issue I take it that you DIDN'T spend the required two hours picking up trash? Thought so. I bet you left tons of moop. I bet you didn't clean up even your own camp. I bet you're the type of person who left bottles and cups all over the playa. Am I right? Sorry i...

Rich, The only thing I'm advocating is talking to people who do stupid things (like drop trash in the potties, or drive around at night with no lights -- endangering MY safety and my friend's safety). Are you seriously telling me I shouldn't do that? I don't know where you get the idea I'm proposing...

What? The proposal is to close the event on Thursday Rich, I'm trying to remain calm, but your tone is starting to infuriate me. And not just me -- everyone here has told you to calm down. You do realize that the talk in this thread won't actually change the rules, right? We're just chatting here. ...

Don't break my community to fix a 'problem' that isn't really a problem! Gee, didn't realize this community was yours and yours alone. Quite possessive of you. You're overreacting. No one is forcing rules down your throat; instead we're discussing how we can limit the impact of certain problems. Yo...

Rich -- just chill out, k? I think Dusty's idea has some merits, but ultimately won't work. Too many of us have friends who, like Rich's friend, are experienced non-Yahoo burners and who want to attend, say, Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday and can't get there by Thursday for personal reasons. They...

Filled the water bottles; picked up the mini-van rental; stuffed all the junk into the back; fed the cats; got the last minute ice. Someone needed a dust filter for their mask.
