I heard that BLM (Burning Lives Matter) will be protesting about vehicle passes, Serpa rights, & the new Zorb policy & blocking Gate road on Sunday & Monday causing an estimated 80 mile back-up. So don't even bother arriving until Tuesday.

I saw this on Redit so it must be true.

This just in from the news:

[LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's official. Southern California based Coastal Helicopters is set to provide luxury VIP helicopter charter flights to Burning Man 2016 aboard its large twin-engine Sikorsky S76 helicopter.

"We are incredibly excited to be a contributing part of the Burner Express Air family for Burning Man 2016. We will be offering service primarily between Reno/Tahoe," says Coastal Helicopters VP Bryan Robinson.

Bryan added "For those looking to fly to Burning Man in style, the Sikorsky S76 is the ultimate in luxury helicopters. It can carry up to 8 passengers and approximately 600 pounds of luggage or supplies. No other helicopter serving Burning Man can offer that. While it's not for everyone, it is one sexy machine."

"We're also excited that our people will be volunteering as part of the event community in our first year of service. It's really important for us to be participating and contributing to this incredible event, and we look forward to being of service for years to come."]

Kick up the dust a little on the rest of us, won't you? Like we already don't have enough?

God I fucking hoping so. I'm so over LEDs, and I'm somebody who does LED art. They have become so cheap that they are now everywhere and on everything. I think every bicycle I saw had about 50. One night I had the nerve to leave my camp with only 5 LEDs on my person and somebody came up to me and asked "Is this your first burn? Why aren't you lit up?" I was like "uh, no, this is my 11th, and I'm wearing enough light to be visible from a mile away."

I'm a big fan of light art in general, but I think that the majority of LED pieces in use on the playa are just way too bright. Is it unfair to call it narcissistic lighting? :D

I can totally see where it comes from, in the days before LED's were affordable your options were either insanely dim, or insanely power hungry. At a time when any kind of intelligent LED lighting was first becoming available, it was still ridiculously expensive (and so rarely seen), and even EL-wire was something of a luxurious item. Color and animation were achieved through multiple strands and specialty controllers, and greater care had to be taken in order to keep the lighting wire strands from breaking.

As LED lighting first started to become more affordable, it was generally a lot dimmer. But advances in both tech and manufacturing have resulted in lights that are super cheap, and much brighter than most people used to have access to. This year I saw pre-fab bike light kits that were as bright (or in some cases brighter) than a lot of art installations and mutant vehicles.

When those lights are used well, and maybe have diffusers or are part of a well-made lighting scheme... AWESOME! But more often than not, they're blasting and blinking away at the brightest possible level and with nothing diffusing the light. It makes for stuff that can be seen halfway across the playa.

On one hand, I was going "wow there are so many colors and lights out there" on the very first night after the gates... but that novelty soon wore off and I was wishing at times that there was a little less light pollution.

Back to the subject of rumors (and of course, mod hat off), I heard that the BLM doesn't want to be outdone by Nevada's 9% entertainment tax and is planning to introduce their own pork tax. It remains to be seen whether this will amount to a tax on bacon, or a per-officer fee to be charged to Pershing county.

Perhaps this rumor belongs on the Politics Every Day thread or the Clown Problem thread instead of the Rumors thread, but:

I heard from very reliable anonymous sources within the FBI that in order to pay back personal financial debts to some foreign financiers, a certain NY clown running for PTOUS has plans for their last day in office to issue presidential pardons to everyone ever convicted of spying for the Chinese or Russian governments.

There is a rumor that the Trump party children will set up a golden camp with the Russian mafia, and the donald himself will helo in. After the election, no need to protect his reputation. Or was that Kazantip? Which rumor? Studio 54 all over again?

For those who doubt it, there really is a train station behind Bruno's where you can catch the shuttle train and forgo waiting in line.

If you are still doubtful, Just read the sign to the right on the building.

No, it was the CIA & they left bread crumbs to make it look like Croatians. Or was it the Chinese who made it look like the CIA setting up the Croatians? Or maybe the Russians who made it look like the Chinese making it look like the CIA set up the Croatians who made it look like the Russians.

I blame Simon.

What did you just call Simon? :shock:

Wait, I thought we were blaming rich, fly-in, turnkey, Sherpa abusing, burners & dirty hippies. See what happens when you miss a year, you have no clue who to blame anymore. We do have to blame loosely defined & over-generalized segment of society for everything don't we?

Is this in the sense of all your Yellow Bearing Sea are belong to us, along with all your Balkans are belong to us, or all our tanks on the border will take Eastern Ukraine which are belong to us? Inquiring minds would like to know.

BTW Tiffany T sounds like a golden festy. Which would require insane protection, we hope burners would not have to pay in tickets, except by taxes.
