Exactly. Not sure why this is so difficult to comprehend.

Correct on both counts (and, of course, I have to toss in the "timestamps aren't official" reminder).
Though earlier in this thread there was an period where people from 12:07, 12:09 & 12:06 all reported getting offers within hours of each-other, which is why we keep saying "roughly"...

12:09 or 12:10 . . . but if you don't make it 'til 12:15, don't give up. There will be Tejano music and mini quiche.

I hope there's a food truck serving Indian tacos near the bus stop, because it's gonna be a long wait. NOT THAT I CAN PREDICT THAT!!

What if the bus stops at every Indian taco stand on the way to the playa? That's a whole lot of stops. Then how long will it take you to get to the Burn? Will you even make it or will you die of cardiac arrest?

Does everyone on the bus get have to eat a taco or can you share? What if I got a taco but I want to give it to my friend? Can I do that or do I have to turn it back in to the taco stand and get off the bus so someone else can have my taco? If I pay for someone else's taco, can they pick it up at the taco stand or will it only be for me? I hope everyone gets a taco... :)

Well, I can say that you didn't ask everybody on this thread, but you didn't ask me. I'm doubtful that there could be a scientifically representative of people on this thread, because the number of people on this thread is so small, so how did you come up with the stats to say that?

I'll count up the people who cared enough to voice their opinions in this thread like i stated if you would like. But my money is on over 50% having agreed with my statement... I didn't claim there to be a scientifically valid study conducted on the matter.
