50 would be nice, especially w/ a higher amount placed at the uberclub sound camps, although it may be nice to hear the laments of "oh i just dropped my bm logo acid and now i'm trapped in a box"

either way, nice job on the trap.

many years ago i was walking along and thought, "uh-oh, it's glowstick moop" only to have it yanked away when i bent over to pick it up. i laughed. the culprits laughed, then invited me over for a mist and a beverage.
your witty rejoinder just flew over my head.....

The hippy cage was out there in 2005, my first Burn, and, after falling victim to it, I laughed my ass off. It was extraordinarily easy to let yourself out of and it was one of those things I always mentioned to others in attempting the impossible task of explaining to others why I love Burning Man.

Personally, I want to see more stuff like that on the Playa. It seems that BM has become a little more "safe" and "idiot-proof" every year. The cage installation brought back good memories for me.

Mosin, you're welcome.


The OPs attitude strikes me as funny. The burn is what you make it. We had a VERY crappy thing happen to us upon arrival (not going into it) but we long ago learned that if you have a bad time on the playa, it's your own damn fault.

Sure, we ALL noticed the darkwads, the tourists, the speeding LEOs, the dust, the rain (loved that, actually, and Live Trap took the opportunity to use a neighbor's tarp as a Slip n' Slide) the drug-sniffing dogs going through empty camps at night, the crappy porta-potties, the Inevitable Wednesday Drama Smack-Downs...and dude, I'm on the @#%@ rag EVERY SINGLE TIME I GO TO THE PLAYA!!!..the frat boys, the Entitled Sparkle-Ponies, the girl that peed right in the middle of our camp, the random camp squatters, etc...but really, do you want to focus on that?

So if the trap leaves anyone with a little sand in their va-va, maybe they need to re-think their outlook on life. You're stuck! Uh oh! OK, perfect time to challenge that "I'm too afraid/proud/insecure to ask for help" issue. Or whatever.

Here are some examples of reactions, as requested by a previous poster:

--One woman grabbed a porno (lots were left there, apparently) and put on her own self-loving show. No, nobody forced her to do so.

--Joke: "How many hippies does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"
Answer: "Hippies don't screw in lightbulbs. They screw in dirty sleeping bags." This and jokes like it got the victim released, a round of cheers, a beer and some good conversation back at the Peanut Gallery.

--On-the-spot couples conflict resolution. Did you piss off your wife by not coming home to your marital camp for two days? Are you stuck inside while she's outside? Time to work it out, dude.

--Flat-out creative use of playa schwag to get oneself out of a jam, as described above.

--People so intrigued by the flotsam in the gift box that, after 20 minutes of rummaging, WE had to tell them they were in a predicament.

And so on. And yeah, there were a LOT of giggles and laughs.

I really feel sorry for the people that come home to the so-called "default world" and the first thing they've gotta do is bitch.

I think I had the best burn ever. The art was phenomenal. Our neighbors were incredible. 99.97% of our "victims" made the Trap what it was. We met a lot of fantastic folks out there. Even Exodus rocked, thanks to the kind of people who shelve the BS and simply decide to MAKE IT SO.

It was me who requested the stories, Mish, and I thank you. Those are great. I'm really sorry I missed spotting your camp--either to watch with glee, or even to be caught (although sadly, the chances I would have stepped inside a curiously small enclosure--if not a porta-potty--is low. Goddamn my overcautious ass). That some of the Trapped were having so much fun rifling through the stuff they didn't know they were caught is absolutely hilarious, & an awesome example of the inability to control public reaction to one's artistic contribution. Love it.
. . . the girl that peed right in the middle of our camp . . .
If she was petite, pretty & dark-haired and habitually squatting between 2 random strangers' cars rather than darken the doorway of a perfectly good porta-potty (of which there were many) I met that stupid little puddle 'pony on Tuesday or Wednesday of the event. (I hope she was moved to depart on Thursday, finding that anything more complicated than peeing was too difficult to do in public.)

Mish you were neighbors to us and I rode by your camp/trap many times. Now I wish I'd stopped to get to know you. Your comments on people who are so focused on bitching about the negatives: HELL YEAH!

What did I have go wrong? Not a single fuckin' thing. Nothing worth bitching about anyway. <trivial>

Oh it's just too boring to think about. I had my best burn ever.

Thanks again for the laughs and next year I'll stop and get to know you.

Oh, btw, first time I saw the trap I was tempted to go in, thinking "Do I have any gifts on me that would be cool to share?" The only thing that stopped me was that I didn't really have anything and it seemed too much work to park the bike and go ALL the way into the trap just to rummage around. So after I figured it out every time I saw someone trapped I laughed especially hard because I was laughing at myself also.

Suggestion for the next Live Trap....

Hang a sign by the entrance that states something like ..."To receive the best gift we have, please remove all clothing and hang on the hooks provided"

Pussray, your comments are the greatest complement of the hundreds we’ve received. Thank you! It is a privilege to have made your list; we are so very honored.

Next year we’ll make the trap even more obvious so as to catch only the really stupid people, thus sparing intelligent, experienced burners that really get it such as yourself.

Now I’m going to go turn myself into law enforcement for false imprisonment.
LOVE IT! You guys rock!

Overall, my best burn so far! However, the low points were:

Running into my douchebag sperm donor father that I haven't really spoken to in a few years at Silkscreen Camp. We live in the same city and NEVER run into each other. 51K people and I run into him at BRC! :shock:
We were cordial. lol!

If it's the trap I'm talking about, it was a chickenwire cage with a basket in it that said "gift exchange." .

i totally got caught in that chicken coop one night. it was awesome. i caught the door the first time it started to close but couldn't re-fix it and then got distracted by the velvet basket and turned around WHOOPS! i got a fossilized tooth (or something) and a pente bead that said "desert" and i left a pantyliner and a packet of emergen-c.

i did hear of a bear trap that was baited with blinkie lights. that one sounds a little worse. :p

The 'burnier-than-thou' Canadian neighbor of ours who at first insisted we park our rv next to his so he could utilize our roof for the shade structure pieces he forgot... then bitched about our generator use when I need a cpap to sleep... then advised us of inverters which Cruise America's don't have... only to have him leave his rebar uncovered (so we could trip on it while putting up our aluminet) despite our gift of tennis balls on the slanted shade structure he settled on after he didn't like my responses to the generator issue. It wasn't like we used it all the time... only when we slept! I thought I read there was noise at burning man and to bring earplugs... we did... along with plenty of water, gas, food, tennis balls, shade... wonder how he dealt with the other 5 rvs that moved in and did about the same as us!

Wankers at the burn of the Man, behind the people choosing to stand behind the seating area, then demanding everyone in front of them sit down thus assuring the shorter people who were standing to see couldn't see shit, move the fuck up into the sitting area!!!

I was fully de-darkwadded out, particularly my bike, and I wore my headlamp anytime I was away from camp (and sometimes while in camp). I'd be scared as shit to be walking or biking around without being lit up. As it is, being a newb, negotiating around on foot or on bike was challenging as all hell. There's no rhyme or reason to the traffic flow. It's like driving into downtown LA with no street lamps and everyone is on mushrooms and meth. Pure craziness. To try to get around in that without being able to see? Fuck that.

My fucktard award, however, goes to all the cars and trucks I saw driving around towards the end of the week that were obviously people not wanting to walk or bike. They weren't loaded down with any gear, so it's not like they were just arriving, and the vehicles weren't marked as staff/emergency. They were just assholes who didn't want to get around as they should and kick up a lot of dust.
Couldn't agree more!

Even with that, my Best Burn Ever.

can ya tell I'm still frazzled from just getting back home?
ditto!

despite all of this, had an awesome time and coming back 2012 with all that we've learned along the way! =)

Funny you should mention that! We dragged the Trap to break it down by the wood recycling area, and a local rancher asked to claim it for his expanding flock of layer hens.

So while Deathray can go ahead and masturbate to fantasies of the Playa Gift Exchange soon being covered in chicken shit, the rest of us can think happy thoughts about a rural family making a few extra bucks selling farm fresh eggs.

OK, enough from me. This is why MsMonkey gets the bullhorn, and I don't. I don't know when the hell to shut up.

(Thanks to those who chimed in to share their PGE stories! All I did was donate some materials and transportation. That wasn't nearly as important as random participation.)

The thing I hate most about this human trap is that I didn't see it. Had I come across it, I might have trapped myself intentionally to see if I could get myself out. The fact that it may return in subsequent years is no good. The surprise has already been ruined for me by reading about it here. Damn.

Also, changing the D street signs was a great idea. I can't believe someone took issue.

Oh, what was this thread about? Oh yeah. Top d-bag was whomever stole my wife's bike. Suck it, loser.

Those 2 pissed me off. I was on 6 & Kyoto and heard art cars all night long.
SAME HERE! As a driver of a street-legal "ArtCar" (that didn't get licensed to drive on the Playa - "not mutated enough") I didn't appreciate being kept awake all night EVERY night by the same, boring, unimaginative pounding bass note broadcast by every fucking "Mutant Vehicle" that shared it's "gift" over and over. While some of the vehicles were at least amazing structures (the dragon, the pirate ship, the mushrooms, etc.) lazy excuses like the pickup truck covered in unpainted cardboard really pissed me off!

This is the only part of my week on the Playa I can't seem to find a sliver lining in.

The undercover police who own art cars and camps, who dress like burners to ruin peoples lives. We try to come out to the desert to experience freedom but I suppose freedom truly does not exist. They have the persona a lot of the time down too. If only they would let loose they might even catch a glimpse of what it is like to truly live.

can i get a photo of one of these "undercover" art cars or theme camps?

not saying they dont exist, but surely someone has to have a documented pic of one if it's going around busting folks. Art cars by their very nature are the opposite of discreet.



likewise, if a neighboring camp was a big trap, wouldn't the guy across the street put up a big sign that says "it's a trap!"?

I am just wondering how these undercover assets work.

Wish I could give you an answer unfortunately it is my friends and friends of friends who got caught in that matter... One group asked an art car for a ride towards the end of the night. They gave them one. When they arrived they offered a little somethin somethin for the favor...they were then arrested by the undercovers...
Not to mention the police busting all the bars...so fucking weak. Be careful everyone!

I almost forgot...

I want to give a big, loud FUCK YOU to the group of Russians at 2:45 and C who left at least 30 bags of garbage and 50 empty water suitcases as they left on Monday morning. We were camped next to you and I hauled most of your trash out with me. So once again, a big fuck you to your camp. I hope to see you next year.

I arrived on Sunday night the 29th. Monday morning I saw these guys making the rounds with a little red wagon in tow and a bullhorn. I didn't really know what they wanted at the time but found out the next day. EVERY single day the whole week they were going around each morning and asking for donations of booze to restock their bar.

Excuse me?!? You're running a bar camp and you fucking run out of booze at the beginning of the week, I could understand near the end of the week, but putting your hat out each day? Leaches. I didn't give them anything.

Here's a brainstormer, pool your money together and send someone into Gerlach on the shuttle to go restock.

I agree though, there was, as always, a lot of great stuff and I don't mean to ride the negative train here.
I know the Petting Zoo quite well and camped across from them for years at 2:30 and D. They are one of the best bars in the BRC and guarenteed that you will leave there drunk. No games, no puzzles, no "tell me a story, no bullshit. Its an alcoholics bar and, as with most alcoholics, there biggest fear is running out of booze. I didn't know they were begging for booze so early in the week but I imagine it is to make sure they make it through the week.... I guarantee you they did not run out on the first day. Those guys bring a fuck-ton of alcohol every year. I'm talking multiple kegs of beer, and case after case of hard liquor. They don't fuck around. They usually run out by Friday and become depressed and sullen following that....

Of all the reasons to complain about the Petting Zoo, this seems to be the most minor. I mean how about the constant Black Rock Ranger calls to fights and problems at their bar? How about the at least once year (and sometimes 3x yearly) Medivac to Reno? How about the bar operating at full capacity and full volume frequently until 5 in the morning? Believe me, a little bullhorn announcement is the least of it.... God bless em. I love that bar. They are also really really good people...

I don't know the Petting Zoo except by name, but when I read that story was not "oh, not enough booze" but something along the lines of "wow, that's a way to extend interaction." A.A. Milne wrote a little fantasy novel that contained this little idea. The Countess throwing "largess" to the people; something about it being a perfect circle, the people taxed to provide the money that was thrown to them. Reminds me of that.

Giving the Burner who brings the single MV to High Sierra Music Fest "a little somethin-somethin for the favor" of a ride is in good form, and at best marginally illegal, even if a Quincy cop was standing right there. Giving anyone on the playa a lil somethin for anything , knowing what we all know about LEO presence and mission in BRC, is just fucking retarded--under any circumstances.

The common denominator in almost every 2010 bust I have read about here (except for the Burner who was illegally searched and busted after being caught opening their pack) is that someone offered, shared, or openly displayed some form of drugs on the playa. What the fuck is it that people don't understand about doing your thing in the privacy and relative safety of your tent or RV?! With at least a year to stockpile, if anyone in BRC that one does not personally know in Default comes to the playa insufficiently stocked with their favorite intoxicant(s) that is THEIR FUCKING PROBLEM. I say give the MV driver a fucking Gatorade or sincere thanks and a hug, and skip the potential to at the very least pay thousands of dollars in legal fees, and probably ruin one's Burn.

j.bii wrote:it was a very positive and much fulfilling week for my campmates and I, but there is still a small list of fucktards:

All the fucktards around 4:00 and D who REALLY had a problem with out little prank to change all the Detroit signs to Denver, which is where we are from.

From 2:00 to 10:00 it was mostly smooth sailing, we all set up in our cutesy little burningman road-crew outfits, put on our new york construction worker accents and got to work changing the signs.

Things to be noted:
We were NOT stealing the old signs, just putting new signs over them.
Denver starts with a D, so does Detroit, our signs were just as legible, even bigger (did them to last years size) then the originals.

we put on performance art, most people loved it, it was fucking hilarious.

But you, mr four o clock old 60 year old shirtcocking bastard, are ludicrous.

First this guy comes up and says "hey what the fuck are you doing get the fuck off our signs" we play it off and tell him if he's got a problem to talk to the foreman, the foreman louie, who can't be located, hes at lunch- we're just making our living as a roadcrew.

he then decides hes going to get hostile and pushes the ladder our from under my brothers feet and grabs the sign from his hand and literally tries to break it on his knee (which was funny seeing the splintery wood come so close to his junk)

at this point we realize this dude is really offended, it's creating quite a scene and so some rangers step in.

we agree to be nice and for his block only we will skip the sign.
as we agree with the rangers on this compromise, douchebag #2 with a beard and fully nude comes up and says "yeah fuck detroit!" and rips the original sign of detroit down and walks off with it.

the rangers had their back turned and missed the guy by a split second and we were already halfway on our way to the next block,

we said fuckit now they're signless, the rangers thought the irony was hilarious and told the old guy now hes really fucked for his party tonight.

(apparently he was having a party at 4:00 and Detroit and NEEDED the Detroit sign to be up)

"now nobody can find your street, you should have let them put up the sign, atleast then you would have a D sign." said the ranger to the doucher #1.

so we continue changing the signs and we get to 6:30 and D and the Sign committee is waiting for us. "we hear you have been defacing signs" they say as we arrive.

in the end they ended up thinking our idea was brilliant, ballsy, and fucking hilarious because of the new york accents, they let us finish up with no more problems.

so all in all a great burn except for my list of 2 douchers that can really go fuck themselves for
A. caring too much.
B. Calling the rangers/sign committee on us
C. Stealing the signs, thats never cool

but even though your a total douchebag, THANK YOU SO FUCKING MUCH!

i haven't laughed so hard in my life since i was a child watching you try to brake that panel on your knee, junk wobblin and all.
j.bii, that was fucking brilliant. We were the folks at 8:15 and Denver (nyuk nyuk) who were throwing the street Margarita party out of the "Deliciosos Helados Frida" cart (see avatar) Wednesday around 2:00 PM. If you were the only road crew decked out in full gear (with ladder, "SLOW" sign, hardhats, cones, etc) working Denver not only do I think we served you Margies, but I snapped an epic photo of y'all! :D PM me and I'll email it to you.

Deathray,

Got fuck yourself. We did call an ambulance. You'd be mad too if some broad crawled down off the thunderdome and then stepped on the neck of a good friend causing him to fracture a disc and ruin his entire burning man after working his ass off. The woman just left and did even see if he was okay So go fuck yourself you piece of shit. Hope you don't fall on a piece of rebar.

I missed the trap.

Someone decorated our street sign with a cowboy hat and solar lights, very nice. But on Friday night someone took the sign. (6:00 & Kyoto) So the whole time we were at camp, people were asking us where they were.

Was that 8:30 and F?

There was a camp there that not only grabbed an insane amount of land for a sound camp that never did much, but they also posted a "not-a-through street" sign at 8:00 and F, blocked the road with their RVs and after being told to clear it by a ranger completely destroyed the street sign at 8:00 & F.

I was camped right on that corner so I ended up having many great interactions giving directions to lost people. One person's obnoxious drama is another's chance to have some fun.

We got a description of the LEO art car:

"a saloon"

Not much, but something. Did anybody else encounter such a car ?

I agree with those above (i.e. stupid actions of some burners lead to their own troubles), but we should make ourselves aware of such things. In any case, they could probably name their art car 'LEO Art Car' with a jail, and still get plenty of burners volunteering themselves into legal trouble...
