Blood in the Water thread starters

Post by tummler » Thu Jul 11, 2013 4:00 pm

In the spirit of last summer's "I'm a Dead Horse--Beat Me," what are some "Blood-in-the-Water" thread topics? That is, what topic titles do you imagine might cascade into a gushing spray of churning chum?

For me, a "Frist-timmer seeks cushy camp. Need mircle tix, 2."

"i am bringing a massive load of X and coke and other sweet treats to The Man. Just need some of you peeps to be cool and generous so I can pay off my ticket. Hit me up and lets start the par-tay! Email: bookemdanno@narcs.blm.gov"

Just a polite reminder to stay generic and not go after any current posts you think fit the criteria.

I am literally living hand-to-mouth as it is trying to feed my family, but I want -- no, deserve -- a ticket to Burning Man because impoverished people like myself should still be able to go on week-long vacations across the country (it's an American right after all). The LIT program rejected my plea, but for some reason I can afford a full priced ticket despite my sorry situation, so will you please sell me your ticket?

I plan on inventing my own triathlon to the playa and I'll need folks on the way to help me with, places to stay, food, spare bike parts, and a lake to swim in. Oh, and I need sponsorship so I'll wear your logo!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Hi, I'm just buzzing through Burning Man on my whirlwind hitchhiking trip to see the world. Something quick just so I can say I've been there.
I'll figure out that self-reliance crap when I get to - how you say? Oh, yes, Nevada.

I'm an attractive female with perky tits, and I have an RV to share. But need a ticket.
...and you'll need to set up your tent far away from my RV, like on the other side of the city.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

I am driving to BRC from the Pacific NW. I've got a sweet but old RV I bought for $25 from Craigslist, and will be hauling all of our camp infrastructure in it. The engine rebuild will be wrapped up about August 23rd, so I CANNOT drive on any hills. Which route is flat? Thinking maybe driving I-5 thru LA then Las Vegas would be best.
Oh, and MY GF will be following me on her bike.
