I"ve never understood that " ... " thing
Sometimes I use it to erase something I've written but probably shouldn't post. Sometimes you erase it to check yourself. Sometimes it can be interpreted to indicate you're biting your tongue because of the complete lack of cluelessness that some people exhibit. Sometimes there's a combination of the above involved.

Regardless of the reason, when deleting a post that you've sent to a thread you have to insert something in the way of characters in its place. Three periods seems to be the minimum number of characters allowed.

The Ego is a funny beast. It's ridden with a tassled saddle, adorned with
jewels soo worn they feel as felt. It hands you many reins, steered by
none. It sits in the middle of it's comfortzone, tiny next to the vast horizon
it cannot see beyond.
Acclimatization occurs in a short time, (days to weeks) and within one
organism's lifetime (compare adaptation).
let's not compare oranges to apple... labor for labor, you ever make soap?... bet you savor the clean...


myself, i'm indebted to intelligentsia... have been since i was small and not born in a manger... would've been a little less indebted then...

I use the "...." in poetic license to denote a pause to reflect.

although not proper grammar - I also use dashes as well (and too often I am sure). This is a chat board and I treat it as such a nice informal gathering to chat.

I actually looked up the ellipses on line recently, because I like them as well. Turns out, apparently, that they are used as a marker when we all know what comes next (or came before.) Mostly for yanking quotes I think. I use them as a *figure it out for yourself* marker, sort of "you know what comes next (or at least you should.)" Maybe even a "goes without saying" symbol.[/i]

Use three ellipses (plural of ellipsis) unless you are eliding a complete sentence, in which case four ellipses would be expected.

I can see why you would be frustrated.

However I know that in 2009 there were plenty of tribal people making money off re-selling discounted tickets, I think that violates the intention of giving the discounted tickets in the first place. They should keep the price at a level where it isn't easy to resell and make a profit.

So what? Their whole world (and backyard) is invaded yearly. We are not talking about an affulent community who lives on the rez for godsakes. Its prolly close to truth to say there are some burners who spend more going to BM than the average yearly rez wage.

I'm only suprized the rez has not organized and offered services (water, beer, etc) outside the playa. They'd make a killing - good for them I say.

todays governers are apt to risk falling into a large neural investment of arguement prolongation.

these are our 'representatives'... our 'fiscal dependants/benefactors'

life and nature is innoculated from the divisive powers of names, but for the activeness of peoples intent

here, the intent of radical inclusiveness is served

the experience is available

you could just as well embrace the duality and petition for higher base pricing for the rich to offset the poor's participation

but then the rich are apt to participate and enrich the city in other ways

yeah, seems if they got ambitious, even more.......

I wonder if it has to do with where the res. land is?
Probably has to happen, (with no permit) on res. land.
They'd make a killing, with a semi truck, loaded with certain supplies, parked near the entrance, or at 12 mile...........

They sell fireworks on the Walker River Indian Reservation, just outside of Schurz. I am really surprised that all of these industrious and enterprising Piautes haven't taken up selling explosives to burners. They'd make a killing. I'm going to stop for an Indian Taco anyway so getting a shot at some mortars would be a bonus! Everybody wins!

I didn't see them selling sunglasses and other burner supplies. The taco stands looked pretty bleak; they were still closed when we drove thru.

the question is not whether you see,
but how you process what's seen...

does it close you down, or open you up?

And that's a good thing.

I'd rather wipe my ass with a jalapeno infused belt-sander than ever eat another one of those things again in my life.

I think they were selling TP at the Empire store.
