Gloves off, fuckos.
So why you FKO's Darwin Blocking this guy?
You seriously think a giant beach ball is going to maime or kill someone?
So fucking what if the beach ball plows into a camp.
Oh fuck! You all switched to lag bolts so there is no more rebar to puncture the gerbil hobby house!
That's what you get for continued pussyfication of Burning Man.
yeah yeah, the guys a troll, and whatever.
As I read this thread, the amount of safety talk and pre-judging of the OP surprised me. Ya'll are "appalled" that the OP, who seems to be a new Burner doesn't want to listen to you guys peeing in his wheaties and sounding like a bunch of mothers over something that you retards think is dangerous.
If you came at me like that for a simple question I would also have told you to get bent.
Gimme a fuckin break. By this logic, then nobody should bring their tall bikes either!! Because the wind could very easily, blow one of them over and land the frame right on your stupid heads, resulting in blunt trauma. The tall bike could also hurt the rider, whether experienced or novice...... Oh my god, someone could get hurt at Burning Man!!!! For sure, the man burn should be outlawed, so should flame effects, those dangerous mutant vehicles, and basically, just about everything else that's fun
I don't know why you all come to Burning Man, but if I wanted to be in some super-safe environment that was also super dull and boring, I'd just stay home.
I come there to see cool stuff, FIRE, contraptions, flame thrower shooting galleries, thunder dome, STRUCTURE FIRE, whatever other dangerous shit people come up with...... Sometimes that dangerous shit is the Man Burn, like when the UFO from a few years ago started coughing up pizza-sized pieces of flaming plywood a few hundred feet in the air. These pieces landed on our MV at 11:45, inches away from 6 bottles of propane, and while my buddy was climbing to the upper deck to throw that shit off, his shirt had 3 holes burned in it, and I had to throw 3 embers out of the vehicle before it caught fire AND make a quick getaway.
It was awesome!
I would not purposely plan for this to happen, OR cause it to happen intentionally, but it's what keeps us coming - pushing the envelope and getting away with it. It was just a little sketchy, that's all.
So are we talking about fucking Burning Man or Disneyland? You guys are trippin big time over a blow up ball that people can run in. It might blow away, who cares? It could be slightly dangerous if the wind goes crazy - no risk, no reward. Read your fucking ticket. Radical Self Reliance - be aware of what is going on around you, and compensate for it.
Token is right, this default world pussification is ruining the event. Been seeing more and more of it, and it flat out sucks.
I don't remember who here is giving us lectures in this thread that just started coming in a few years ago, but seriously some you YOU are the ones that have no clue.
Definitely bring the Zorb, and definitely fill it with explosive gas. If you feel like it, have some one blindfolded try to hit you in it with flaming lawn darts. If you want to have more control then roll it out at night, not in the afternoon when it'll be windy. Consider having a safety team that can warn folks and stop the ball before shit goes bad. Maybe the riders should have a shank in their pocket in case of a needed getaway.
But for the sake of Burning Man, quit it with the "we can't try this, it's not safe" bullshit. Stay home if you can't handle a little excitement. Read your fucking ticket.
