Their original factory was at 1 Mustard St. just around the corner from you, Simon, in the Roc.

We have a Heinz Street in Berkeley.




Of course, that leaves us 56 short.

not to get back on topic, but in a round about way, this explains in a sense why defaultia can be bland and predictable.

most conversations in the D-World have a pretty standard arc to follow.

most conversations on e-playa, as well as the playa playa (p2) end up evolving into seemingly random free flow word association madness.

of course, you never know where it might lead to, and thats the beauty of it.

we need more of this here, or there, now...

go out tomorrow and fuck with one "Normal"....just behave like you would on the playa, toss all your filters out, and let it fly.

the reactions can be priceless, especially if you can pull them out of their rut, if only for a minute, you might actually be that butterfly wing that starts a hurricane in their soul.

or you could get beat up, or thrown in a looney bin, or talked about, badly.

but you just might change someones life if you gift your playatude and it sticks...

i don't know ....

i used to do this all the time, and i had someone to do it with ... just two of us, surrounded by accountants ...

we never did see anything but amusement or disgust, and certainly didn't change anyone.

years and years and years of it. decades.

no wonder i'm so complacent ... sigh ...

We spend all year thinking dreaming wanting fantasizing hoping waiting wishing and we are finally there,
enjoying each moment knowing it will pass horrifically fast.

Being on the playa is that orgasm you have been anticipating all year long.
No wonder we all walking around with silly smiles on our faces.

And after the climax, some aren't very good at cuddling.

Trust a fish to be a wet blanket.

We're all on holiday there. That pre-selects for a good mood, leading to better interactions.

There's a whole lot more to the event than that, but if the playa were the default world, imagine the kinds of fights in the porta-potty lines by week 37.

by week 37, it'd look like a bunch of praying mantis (i?) put in a jar.........

just a bunch of shoes with feet in them laying around the playa, all having eaten eachother early on.............
