They tell us that
We lost our tails
Evolving up
From little snails
I say it's all
Just wind in sails
Are we not men?
We are DEVO!
We're pinheads now
We are not whole
We're pinheads all
Jocko homo
Are we not men?
D-E-V-O
Monkey men all
In business suit
Teachers and critics
All dance the poot
Are we not men?
We are DEVO!
Are we not men?
D-E-V-O
god made man
but he used the monkey to do it
apes in the plan
we're all here to prove it
i can walk like an ape
talk like an ape
do what a monkey do
god made man
but a monkey supplied the glue
We must repeat
O.k. let's go
your witty rejoinder just flew over my head.....

actually, if you look at my profile picture, you'll notice that my hair is ALREADY PERFECT, so i have made that giant leap into the de-evolutionary puddle of aqua-net and my Mennen Black Dry Look will soon be the NORM.

i dont need no stinkin' plastic toupee to devolve, just a good barber.

if all of the old school burners give up on us then who will be there to help us 'evolve' into the kind of community that you can be proud to be a part of?


the kind that drink lots of whiskey, drive fast on drugs and discharge firearms at stuffed animals?

This theme is amazing....

Postby jcoffy » Fri Sep 12, 2008 4:31 pm

If you don't agree consider this....

Everything changes. Everything evolves. Your whole body changes daily. Nothing is actually the same as it was a second ago. The world is in a constant state of flux.

So either evolve....roll with it or don't go. I have very little compassion for all of you that are offended by this theme. I am trying to bridge that gap here.

Or am I?

Theory on Evolution

Postby tubahurl » Sat Sep 13, 2008 3:17 pm

I’ve got it! A new art installation to prove Evolution. Every participant in this installation must submit a sample of their DNA before entering the installation. We set up the Tub on the playa, and with it’s new found speed based on unobtainium snarkutary fusion flux drive, everyone is then spun as a self contained test tube. And as the sound system blasts DEVO, you might almost be able to see the transformation begin. After a few minutes, or so, surely less than an hour of spinning, :shock: we then sample their DNA again. And behold, a new species is bound to evolve based on stupid centrifugal fun. Then we can start a whole level of science based on REVolvolution! Submit I say! Submit to REVolvolution! Anything else is just amoebic fodder. Back to the dungeon! My evi…., My er uh, "science" project must go on! :twisted:

Oh yeah? Well bollocks to you too!

This is the best theme ever!

...for total irritation (for everyone), all the street names should be references, not to demonstrated Evolutionary characteristics, but to bogus Lamarckian hypotheses like... 'Soma to Germline' or 'Use and Disuse' It'll be a hoot! We'll laugh like drains.

In my experience, not everyone changes every day, although, from an odor point of view, I really would prefer it if they did... :!: :wink:

Wait, are seraphim the ones that grow out of the ground, and cherubim the ones the grow down from the ceiling, or the other way around?

And, thank the Tentacled One that I didn't have to bring up the glory hole reference. That would be tasteless and wrong. Ok, maybe just wrong, from what I've heard.

Unfortunately, my student took the picture before I finished my treatise on the irrationality of evolution, atheism, and agnosticism.

I think it's a great theme (as good as any).



yeah me and my buddies stumbled upon it one night, was a few people there.. if anyone remembers a bunch of irish lads who came down and emptied the place then that was us hahahaa

someone shouted something bout nobody being left in ireland to which my mate paddy who was sitting behind me jumped up and in the funniest impression of a gold digger says 'yeah thats cos we all came over here lookin for treasure'

everyone in the class broke out laughing, we left shortly after. most memorable experience tho hehe

Except for the fact that Science is fact, and thats a fact...ok sorry, but seriously Evolution is Scientifically proven to be true, it's not even theory anymore.

Christians can believe it too! The Old Testament is all metaphorical, meant to be taken seriously, but not literally. Like it tells you to kill babies of the sinful bastards, rip out someones eye if they do it to you, marry your lovers brother if your lover dies. It tells fairy tales (though good morals) about parting the red sea and burning bushes that talk to you, living in a whale for many weeks, and having two pairs of all animals on an ark that saves all species (but the lions don't eat the caribou). So you see it's ok to not entrust in the story of the Garden of Eden. It's a STORY about morality and human nature!

The New testament is the true basis for Christianity. Just use that if you want to do the whole christian thing, all about JC! Scientifically proven to have really happened (Jesus Living)! How bout that?

No, this is a fine theme, and hopefully everyone can embrace it in their own way. [b]When Burning Man selected Heaven and Hell, I did not bitch[/b], and im NOT christian...anymore.
