This is not the usual Page Two but it is here.

A long time ago a close burner female friend of child bearing age was romanced by two competing male burners. I was in the room at the same time for that palpable male energy.

Well the "winner" made a baby.

I keep in close touch with the mom. I just came across the dad in a Burning Man fundraiser.

The dad birthed a significant genetic birth defect to their child, Prader-Willi. The dad exited and does not support. Meanwhile the dad is doing playa fundraisers now and making their identity photographing young burners and festival females.

That made me sick. The mom changes diapers daily for their adult child.

No naming names, that would be anti-ePlaya. But think it through making a burner baby before doing it. And think through human values.
Holy shit. :shock:

A thousand more worthy are looking, but, I suppose if they're into endless video meetings where the alpha guys get to hear themselves talk and talk and talk, there a camp for you.

The winds have shifted,
the season has turned,
no more tickets needed,
or RV space for the Burn

Where's all of the interesting stories of weird, wonderful and challenging things that happened to people this year? That's what I'm really interested in reading about... Not all of this crap about hating ebikes, and making more rules and regulations and more hoops to have to jump through. Lost posts are out of control too. Everyone wants their bikes, phones, clothes, goggles, coffee mugs, rings and dignity back. Some of that stuff might make it back, but let's get real about some stuff like goggles and coffee mugs, they're not coming back! The only reason anyone lost coats this year is because it was too f-ing warm to wear one, so they set it somewhere or left it in the bike basket. People are loosing way too much shit and expecting to get it back these days!
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

No stories. Where’s my stuff, sell me a camp bike ticket. Just answer my question.

Hey, great news. I found all the stuff you lost at the Burn. Yes, all of you. Just send me $0.05 and I'll mail it to you. Yes, all of you. I know it's crazy, right. Especially when you consider I didn't even go this year.

While it doesn't eliminate the problem, plonking the individual by adding them to your "foes" list makes it a lot more tolerable. Especially when said "foe" isn't actually adding anything to the discussion, just dropping random scat everywhere.

Who lost whose own shit? I don’t know what you earn, but if you can’t keep track of your own things, don’t go to the desert, and especially don’t feel entitled to a service to get it back. Really, if it works out, you fucking got lucky. Wuss.

Fuck, could someone at least make up a good burning man story from this year? It doesn't even have to be something that actually happened... I know there has to be at least one aspiring author out there with madskillz, and a thirst for an eager audience.
