Burningman and the occult

Post by bdongray » Thu Aug 12, 2004 11:55 pm

OK, ok...

So who is <B>prongs</B>?
I know I provide the site <u>http://www.TheVaultOfHeaven.com</u> for anyone, for free, anonymously, so I'm not going to censor the site which gives out interesting "facts" about the statistics of the size, shape, and co-incidences of BRC.

Whoa! Weird! And it made me ponder...

Go see <U>Burningman and the occult?</U> - what do you think?

This person also jumped into the Lat Long question under Questions and Advice. I wonder how many other places this fungus will appear.

Excuse me... but you were the one to start pushing extra details in that thread, by posting extra stats over and above just answering the Long/Lat question, by quoting stats about BRC, and putting a reference to all the stats about BRC - instead of just answering the Long & Lat question. I posted a reference to a good use of the Long/Lat information (to see Iridium flares), and a reference to this thread, which talks about the shadier side of BRC stats someone has decided to put on my site. I'm half inclined to remove it, since it's causing ME hassle, but I feel everyone has the right to their opinions as long as they are not nasty, hateful, racial, etc. Anyway - I thought those stats were amusing, and probably stretching it a bit.

To be honest, it was your posting about Rod Garrett's stats on the other thread that inticed me to bring these shadier stats shown to me, to everyone else's attention, maybe there *is* more going on occult-wise than I know.

I do wish you'd stay on topic, and not just fling insults. If you like to fling insults, please leave that at negative behavior at home when you come to BRC. Thanks.

Very witty! Amusing the pun was intended?

Soon there will be a conflaguration and the world will re-emerge, pure.

Ah you're a doctor. So your spelling is exemplary--but your handwriting sucks.

Actually, I have lovely handwriting.

Sadly (or maybe not) I am not actually a doctor. I'm a beer merchandiser. You found me out, dude, by laying a trap with my own sense of vanity as bait. Damnation.

How many points?



Look if the e-playa had a spell-check, I'd use it. I used to get perfect report cards except spelling and hand writing.

Aaah, Hell!

Named by the christians after the HELLenic religion because we at one time had a place called the underworld. Sadly its just a misinterpretation. Everyone went there whether or not you been bad or good. But that 's very old school Hellenic.

The Theme of this year's event very much offends me and I believe a great many others. By the imposition of having a heaven implies that there is a hell which are all human beliefs and may account for nothing for evil and good are all creations of man's desire to place those that are different in a catagory other then themselves. If you are them, then you are evil. If you are part of us, then you are good!

Hmm, maybe it is a ram's head, which could mean that the Man is sponsored by Dodge....

Ah, but notice: This post is the 24th on this thread. 24= 2+4 = 6. See hwere I'm going with this? 24 posts in a bulletin board, bb, the second letter of the alphabet. 2+2+2+4=10. There were 10 Elders of Zion aprehended coming out of a lake in Lugano, Switzerland. When questioned, these Elders confirmed the existence of the mysterious "League of Red" also know as "Them Jew Bankers What Run Air'thang".

So obviously, Burningman is a secret arm of the Knights Templar in league with a splinter group of discordians who are trying to reform the Legion of Substitute Heroes. It all makes perfect sense.

We're through the looking glass here, people. Trust no one. Quick, behind you.
