Also provide actual evidence and stats that people standing in Empire or Gerlach are arrested for loitering.
Please, I beg of you - show up at the Gate without a ticket in a vehicle full of people. Just let us know when you're going to do it so we can video it. Your understanding of the facts and reality is right up there with the Duggar family.

Your long term old troll game is boring. I suggest you redecorate your basement instead.

Yes. In what is politely termed "the back seat" - as long as it's not too full.

Sic Pup,

I do not know about a vehicle pass for your zorb, you might need to check it out.

However, it is my belief that if you intend to ride/drive/operate/run/fly/roll/push (whatever you do with that thing) if you want to do it at night; then, you will have to be well lit, need to have out-walkers and you will need to go by DMV to have it inspected so that you can get your night-operation sticker/permit.

Eric, is not that correct?

Yes. You also need to go through Gate line in it, while maintaining full control, and carrying all your supplies. Please let me know which day you'll be coming, I enjoy an slight chuckle now and then.

Ever have a desert that was so good that you want to smear it all over someone just so you could lick it off?

Dear SC

While food and fun do often mix, had a desert tonight that was just, WOW, I want to smear this one someone just so I can lick it.

Which is a rather a strange thought to be having at work.

Might have to take some home though.

Dear Eric;

What are your fashion thoughts on a seersucker suit, spats and riding crop? Would this be appropriate dress for a dumpy old fart at the meet n greet? Or should I try something with stripes or tails? I'm rather shooting for the "Ygmir look", but I dont have the boyish good looks and svelte Nordic physique to rock a tux. Help!!!! My entire burn is in your hands!

I have never wanted to lick a desert off of someone. I grew up in one, too many cactus spines and random dead shit.

Apparently there was Hanta virus in that desert you licked, and it's causing you to turn questions into comments. You might want to have that checked.

Suits are always a good idea. Putting your entire Burn into my hands is not.
