How to Tell a "Real Burner"

Post by theCryptofishist » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:24 pm

Okay, I think they don't exist. Or to be more precise: A Real Burner is the person who does it just the way I think she/he should.

And then there are other "tells".

Such as:
A "Real Burner" (I should really learn how to do that trademark thing...) sleeps through the loud music from the bar/camp ten feet away.
Or
A "Real Burner" thinks that Obama got the figure "447 Billion" from the road to Wadsworth.

Any to add?

Real Burners lunge on that piece of bacon which dropped to the playa and is nearly invisible with dust.

I think a "real Burner" is one who is shocked that our living encyclopedia of All Things Eplaya doesn't remember the other threads this has been covered in over the years:

Real burners snarkishly yet lovingly search for previous threads on the same-ish topic. Obv.

Eric's okay. Eric's wonderful. Except for his habit of not being at Fandango when I'm looking for him. I'll have to have dinner with him later this month.

A "Real Burner" doesn't judge other people's burniness.

A "Real Burner" combines antithetical feeling in every greeting.

"real" burners, are humans.
And as such, vary.
One might submit, a "real" burner, doesn't care, who a "real" burner is, or what makes them that way.
They just accept, "what is, who is, where is".

and, love to be judgmental and snarky.......it's a sport here.

I'm so sad that I can't scream "why do you hate me" in your ear over the eplaya like I can from behind the bar.

Real burners give all they got and then give more...

Real burners then play the game known as "what you got left" i.e. making people take shots of worcestershire sauce in my bar and then making them chase it with warm gin...

Real burners always ask virgins how much water they drank today???

Real burners volunteer ar as many facilities as they can in a day @ BRC...

Real burners aren't DARKWADS...
