What the fuck is so wrong with that camp that they had ten dropouts this late?

When I was driving log truck.. Cop with a portable scale pulled me over.. I knew I was in deep shit.. I was driving an old corn binder.. The key switch had died a long time before.. There was a switch handing from under the dash.. I turn the switch off.. The cop set his scale.. Told me to dive forward. So I turned the key and stepped on the starter.. Damn thing wont start.. I had that cop up under the hood with trying everything to get the old girl to start.. Cop gave up, took his scale and left.. I waited a half hour, flipped the switch and drove to the mill

As a parable, I loved the 10 ticket test.
Everyone claims to be going to the Burn for "the community" except for this dipshit -viewtopic.php?f=371&t=69327&hilit=i+deserve+it
Yet when asked to commit to a community that was offering them an opportunity to attend.....the truth comes out, even if the supporting story was a hoax;
"I want a ticket from you for me, screw your community." A well-played parable for our modern burner times.

Hello I am a first time burner virgin/ have gone for the past 100 years.

I realized after March of this year that I am inspired/entitled/needing to have someone give/sell/barter me a ticket, give a ride in-out, camp me, shower me, transport my art project, dispose of my trash and costume me.

I'm a burning star!

So I am entitled for sure!

It's so obvious! (to me)

Internet manifest it, demand I!

Pretty high if you like straight espresso shots in the morning. We even had the PlayaSkool crowd stopping by last year.
However, the required T stake pounding and removal by all camp members seems to keep the riff raff away.

I'm looking for a ticket for myself and 2-8 million of my very closest, dearest friends. Thanks!

High-up BM references available on request.

wtf is it with people who HAVE tickets and one week prior to the event, don't have a ride?
you, your monkey hut, three bins. That's a fucking carload. Not a ride.
get your high up friends to get your shit there, they have lots of stuff going that way, I'd guess.
