The average person inhales 45 pounds of dust in their lifetime.

Burners average double that.

So, a client tells me today that he "recently" read on the internet that the US Government has the right to record all information on the phones and internet to protect the Constitution...

I was like, "You mean the Patriot Act of 2005?"

Then I was like (to myself,)"You know the NAZIS had the internet right?"

Then I was like (to an alter ego,) "You know electromagnetism is like 13.7 billion years old?"

This. Is. The Internet.

I'm not feeling the love Token. Grumpy post burn?

It wasn't intended to be cleaver, just a joke (I thought we could still do that here). I thought it was obvious but you act like you solved the mystery of DB Cooper or something and felt inclined to tell everyone how brilliant you are. Bit of an over reaction don't you think?

Anyway, I am a little pissed off at how many holy rollers are on their soap box's condemning the evil Satanic Burning Man festival. It's too bad that Mr. Mitchell through mental illness, drugs, or whatever drove him to do this. I feel bad for his family but now it's given the whacked out religious media & hack YouTubers a platform to declare all burners as Pagan Satan worshipers. I don't like that. I openly let my employer & co-workers know that I go and unfortunately situations like this make the event out to be something that it is not. It's not just this video but several that I have seen today that spew lies and paint us all with the same brush.

To be honest I think most burners are non-religious and don't worship anyone/anything.

After Video Of Elotero Being Attacked Went Viral, Lowrider Bike Clubs Made Him A New, Custom Cart

So, the original story had to do with gentrification and hipster snobs hating on people, but then it got good.

The community rallied around the guy and helped to make him whole, again.

The reason for posting this here has to do with the fabricator:
He says he’s able to afford to take the time to weld the cart because of money he has coming in from multiple Burning Man bike orders. “My hands are for those who need me,” he explains.
makes money off the event but this dude also gets it!
Art (no relation to Benjamín) is a welder who creates custom bicycles as well as street-vending carts. His signature style involves working with scrap, so much so that he’s known as The Skrapfather.

Like the beat cop I saw stop at a homeless guy sitting on the sidewalk. Cop reached down, took the plastic cup, poured the change out into his hand and put it is his pocket, set the cup back down and walked away. Easily 20 people witnessed this, including his partner, with the cop ignoring everyone. Homeless guy just sat there in fear. Stage whisper that cop's name in earshot of a street person and they'd jump. His "fellow" officers were not happy with how difficult he made it for them managing those on the street. Within a few years he got a high-profile political-security protection job, still in uniform. Go figure.

In the spirit of mainstream doublespeak I think we should refer to Nazis as Racial Purists so we don't risk offending anyone.
