I think it's definitely going to be impressive enough, and a worthy challenge for the Man team. It would be funny if they put a mini-Man on top of it. Hope it doesn't have a problem where it falls over rather than collapses while burning.
It would be great if they put a mini man on top of the Man, and then a mini mini man on top of that, etc. then we have "Man all the way up" compared to "turtles all the way down"
Cool!

Thanks for the tip. Vital? or just a matter of good form?

The film -- "based on the novel" -- must not be considered a replacement for the book. Michener's epic novel is a veritable education in a culture -- very much worth reading under any circumstances. :D

ebay has 2,881 items on search "joe camel". Better bid now, these are rarer than auto passes.

Who's good at drawing? We "need" a camel drawn up like Jessica Rabbit.

Oh.... And.... Unrelated.... I want to try to be the first ePlayan to post the term camel-humper.
You heard it at Elliot's Camel Shoeing & Tea Parlour first.

Wore them sometime back in the aughts ('05, I think) - do not get "otherly-centered" while wearing them & try to use the bathroom. Trust me.

My only issue is that if I get to go this year I most definitely need a vehicle pass. I live in Georgia and I'll be driving with one or more friends. If I got a ticket and no pass I couldn't go. People as far away as me have a hard enough time getting there let only trying to find people to ride with. If I lived in California it'd be no big deal.

Finally, a reason to break out the abayas mom and I wore in Saudi. And MyLarry's Desert Shield t-shirt collection.

I lived in Shiraz, they have a gorgeous caravanserai, fountain in the middle, lounging benches where tea and morgh polow was served, dappled light coming in through the stained glass windows set in the dome.

"Do I need a Vehicle pass for my Horse"
Are you a native american? If so, pursuant to law originating in the 1800's, you can not be barred from riding a horse on federal land.

If you are not a native american, you may pass unimpeded on federal land via horseback if you are carrying a prisoner, or the corpse of a prisoner, to the nearest Marshal or Sheriff, or are looking for branded livestock.

Know your rights under the law! Brand your Sparkle Ponies!! :mrgreen:

the fact that Your name and My GF's name is the same is an unfortunate coincidence.

Be sure to take your pooper scooper with you when you are styling around on your camel.
