Before you ride your bike from BF Egypt to the playa, fully pack your bike and yourself and ride down a two lane highway during a storm with raging winds..
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Just want to make sure that everyone is clear on the feather rule here, as I've seen some comments about it. If you use extra large feathers and pay them extra special attention when you make your mohawk/head dress they won't fall out and no one will mind that you are wearing feathers on the playa. Sure.. we all know everyone elses poorly sewn feathers aren't okay but wanted to make that distinction.
The answer is never no.

What glue do you suggest I use to secure my feathers effectively against the sudden rear impact of an overloaded hippie pickup and uhaul while I ride my Schwin north to the burn? And if the feathers are knocked loose before the photo shoot,it's still cool, right? I paid extra at my camp to take care of stuff like that.

So, I was looking at my ticket last night, and some ass hole stapled it to my receipt! Now there are two tiny holes in this wonderful 1 of a kind piece of art.
Are they going to exchange our damaged tickets for pristine new tickets at Gate or at Greeters?

You're to use those same holes when you staple it to your forehead so you don't leave your ticket at home! :roll:

Exactly!
Each one has its very own serial number, so no two are alike. Plus, only this one is my one.

Wasn't there a whole thread on these staple holes in our tickets?

Must have been back when the special holiday tickets went out.

Go to Will Call.

They take your unmarked ticket out of it's oxygen proof sealed envelope (untouched by human hands) and as they hand it to you, staple it to your receipt.

Pay 10% more than the highest retail price for items selected by an unknown person earning minimum wage!

Pick them up curbside already packed; do not inspect, inventory, or de-MOOP your supplies before heading to the playa. Remember: No Expectations!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I am sure there are folks who will actually do this.

I've been prepping for the unavoidable late night urge, avoiding the run to the outhouse on the playa, by peeing in an old empty laundry jug here at home. Can't wait until after the burn to bring home the new additions to my collection. Once you start collecting, it's an addiction, I already have over 26 jugs saved in the garage !!!

Pickup some cheap plastic shit and start handing it out to random strangers on the street and at the mall.

Announce on eplaya that you finally got all the precursors to whip up a batch of illicit mind altering substances and that you will be gifting the results of your clandestine efforts on Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of GDP and 8.
The next morning you will wake up pretty much your old self except that a very unusual 16 hours will have been added to your store of life experience.
