Simon can have the bus I get dibs on the explosives. Second year megalomania has hit and I need to be able to blow things up this burn.

I wish I could be as sweet and understanding as others on this board, but I want to come to Nevada and shake you till your teeth rattle. Delle says it better, and that is how I feel about all of you. With all the asshole crap in the world, to loose one of you beauties hurts us all.

tears fall down my cheeks
and the craziness feeds my fear
I hear the angel speak
the sound I hear, so clear, so nice
how far is it to paradise

if i hadnt been to burning man and hence still felt in the slightest suicidal like i did before today would have been a tipping point.
i woke up not wanting to go to my new shiny exciting job which was unusual so far. I should have listened to my intuition. on the way to work a knocked over a motorcyclist, fortunately he wasnt hurt nor was his bike or my van. however it could cost me £500 then on my second and last job of the day i got a puncture. i have to pay for the new tire £84

total earnings £80
total loss £584 (potentially)

fucker of a day i am going to get hideosly drunk tonight as i am not on call and think of how something so simple as a party in the desert and the wonderful people i know because of it can make such a difference.

Grai, you are a spectacularly lucky man. If you lived in the USA, you would now be buying the motorcyclist a brand new motorcycle (US $ 10.000), because the frame of the old one was bent ever so slightly (detectable by laser beams) in the mishap. Then you would be paying for his trip to the emergency room in a helicopter (US $ 16.000.) And so forth.

Grai, when I'm down, which has been a frequent part of my life lately, I think about the playa and it makes me feel better. Fortunately I've had a wonderful group of friends here helping me through my tough times. We're here for you! Always!

Graidawg, please don't take this the wrong way, but according to OUR driving standards, YOU were on the wrong side of the road, and the motorcyclist was correct.
Still, I'm glad everyone was OK.

nope! but I'll help you hide from Emigration Control. Mary you (in a gay legal marriage state) or arrange a strait mirage for you(no befits unless you pay extra. ). I also would help you become a member of our Tribe. (you'd have to Denounce king and country), and or help you sneak into the country from Canada.

BTW. Thanks for Sharing your life and travails with us. you rock.

oh knowmad! thats the most pleasing thing i have read here for so long. i now truel regret not spending a lot more time with you when i was over there. i would have no trouble with dneouncing country and to renege from the queen (i couldnt denounce her she has never hurt me)
as to the sneaking into the country or living as an illegal, all i would ever be thinking would be if was caught i would never see my friends again. i miss you all so much the rest of the year not seeing you at all would probably make me post in the suicidal tendencies thread. a lot.
i would love to here about becoming part of your tribe though pm me or something about that

That's a famous line from some dramatic era... Maybe the Revolutionary war? It sure rings true, whoever said it.

Yeah, I like your quote too. When life has to be endured, something is wrong.

Yes... quiet on this thread now. Let's hope that's because the whiners of us have less to whine about -- not because we have all jumped off tall bridges! I'm feeling much improved over just a month or two ago, lemme tell ya. :D

This too happened to me. and I would again break these laws of men just to look into my loved one's eyes. you passport is your enemy, those borders are marks in the sand. we are human, and have a right to move around the planet. And for that you can...call me a terrorist, string me up and tell me I have no God. but this I do believe!!!

Grai, if you have nothing that will bar your entry, I suggest you explore your options.

I hear military service is a direct way to citizenship here.
There may be essential services you can do, or public service that will enhance your chances.
I know canadia gives preference to those moving to unpopulated areas.

Catholic groups spend a lot relocating people here to prop up a dying cult, even engaging in smuggling.
They might help with employment, etc.

Marriage is a popular choice when all else fails.

Be aware of all the new rules.

Hey Gyre!
Why didn't you tell him that he could just come over here and grab a piece of land from one of the clueless natives that don't have a seance of propriety? or that just by being here converting heathens would be God's will? better yet tell him that for every savage he kills and scalps he can have another slave or a fattend oxen?

No doubt without publicity, this would have been another massacre.

"The equipment maintained by the military while in use during the siege included fifteen armored personnel carriers, clothing, rifles, grenade launchers, flares, and 133,000 rounds of ammunition, for a total cost, including the use of maintenance personnel from the national guard of five states and pilot and planes for aerial photographs, of over half a million dollars."
The data gathered by the historians Record and Hocker largely concur: "...barricades of paramilitary personnel armed with automatic weapons, snipers, helicopters, armored personnel carriers equipped with .50-caliber machine guns, and more than 130,000 rounds of ammunition". The statistics on the U.S. government force at Wounded Knee vary, but all accounts agree that it was a significant military force including "federal marshals, FBI agents, and armored vehicles." One eyewitness and journalist described "sniper fire from…federal helicopters," "bullets dancing around in the dirt," and "sounds of shooting all over town" [from both sides].

Been a bit more busy, I'm now back in Calgary staying with my papa-in-law for the holidays. lived here for 30+ years so it's nice to be 'home'. It's really good to hang out and catch up with friends...even though I hate the question "what have you been up to?" because I feel like i don't have much worthy of sharing. it's all in my head...a confidence thing...man that confidence eludes me when I'm depressed.

Much love to all the lovelies here...i still lurk each day and am here if you need an ear <3 oxoxox
