I'm a virgin this year so I cannot speak to Burning Man but I know at other "events" such as the Rodeo, the State Fair and the Reno Air Races during arrests that include any physical altercations, the arresting deputies are video taped. Not by bystanders but by their own to provide evidence of what actually happened as court evidence. I doubt those videos would make U Tube because of the chain of custody but I'd bet they would include some incriminating images of Tube boy and his friend.

Dum ,dum, dummmm. Simple Simon strikes again! The cleverness! Using my real name, how shocking, how clever (already said clever didn't I?). Or is it, how clever? At least if your going to pretend to be....humm, now what is it actually? Nihilistic? No, that would require some thought about the philosophical state of the world, and most philosophical positions are actually based on providing an explanation that make the uncertainty of life more existentially tolerable. Not enough heart or mental horsepower in your posts for that. I suppose if someone is just going to be mean-spirited for the sake of making themselves feel like they have a life, people should be generally tolerable of these poor traumatized depressed people, ho hummm, too bad, so sad.

Afraid of being filmed? You betcha. As long as Simon wants to out me, I’m a prison psychologist. Part of my basic education has been a centrally important and simplistic realization; Stay away from crazy people and people who carry weapons. The crazy ones will make you part of their craziness, and not in a good or amusing way, and the ones that carry weapons have them because they believe in their innate right to use them on you if circumstances dictate. Law enforcement: have strange little electrical patterns in their brains that tell them that even if your doing no harm, they can take the weapons they carry and use them on you if they don’t like your behavior. And after that the real rodeo begins, a vast system of inflicting and distributing misery that lasts for years and years.

Go ahead, tease the crazy people with the guns and courts. Pull on those lion’s whiskers, good luck with that. I’ll walk quietly around them and let the weaker, or dumber, members of the heard get eaten. If you are against the drug laws join MAPS or one of the other organizations that is actually making some real progress against the craziness of the legal system. Or you could hang out like some folks and speculate on other’s desire for anal sex.

I was going to post about how neat I thought the spy cameras were in gyre's post, but I think it might be best not to get involved in this whole mess... :roll: )

Sync........I believe the only people that may have got any idea who you really are......are you and Simon. You did what he wanted you to do......which was go off on some kind of psychobabble about pulling whiskers……..Here’s an idea……..you can send Simon personal messages…..that way you won’t out yourself by responding to everyone on Eplaya…….which to my count is currently about 6 people…….

As far as filming the police………everyone who wants to film the police at BM, please; go fuck themselves…….

Hugs and Kisses,


Flatlander
