Wow...what an honor. I was actually hoping to win an ever-elusive burning man ticket which I am worried I will not be able to obtain this again this year.

Oh...about me... I'm a 4-time burner...I made and brought an art car once, and made three custom scooters each other time. I've been self-employed for 12 years, but the latter word in that phrase is a misnomer. Entrepreneurs survive on their wits and anything they can. They often work for below minimum wage while paying themselves out of now income. I discovered if a self employed person gets in a car accident, insurance companies won't compensate for wages because they don't consider there to be any. And you can't collect unemployment benefits.

It is both interesting and sad that the feds and states are pushing to create more jobs. Don't jobs start with businesses? How about improving the business climate for startups so we can enjoy the freedom of being creative, but not be smothered in so much bureaucracy and fees that we can't even get going.

Burning Man created something from nothing and gets hassled constantly with so many government entities extracting tolls everywhere they can. Yet we still persevere...hoping to escape the harsh reality fabricated by control freaks determined to destroy the planet and enslave others while amplifying their power. For two weeks a year, we can forget about that reality and enter an alternative universe. Thank you burning man for showing the way.

Yag, you may have to take care of that, my arms are just not long enough!

Ecodevoman, I know the ticket gods will smile down on you and provide a ticket. There is 6 months to go and lots of things can happen. After all, when you got up this morning, did you have any idea that you would be honored as number 37,000? I would buy a (state) lottery ticket if I were you! :D

Welcome #37K!

Your number came up once this week. This must mean your bio-rhythms are running hot. Maybe try the real Lottery?!

I hope you get a Burning Man 2012 ticket :P

More power to the self employed!

Thanks to the power of many socks you are # 37,000. And you win a prize.

At this stage of our lives, I think we should welcome non-consensual advances and groping, with open arms!
