I am so tired of watching them pose a naked Downward Dog in their little shoulder holsters.

If they're Israelis, I can deal.

You people redefine the term "jaded".

If I'm going to take advice from anyone on that subject, SOP would be the one.

No one's ever called me jaded before!

I don't know whether to argue, or be pleased. :)

That would be illegal.

... So the police officers can play hide & seek, but not the Burners ? Gee, they're no fun. At all.

Ok, another idea : a week-long game called DATE-A-COP. Once you have spotted an undercover cop, you have 'til the end of the festival to date him/her (I hope they are female undercover officers). If you do, let's say you win a prize like... Uh... I don't know but something cool !

That's not illegal, I guess !

(and please NO DATE RAPE. It's illegal, immoral, and police officers deserve our respect, even if they have chosen a funny way to serve the community).

I think it'd be more fun to catch their interest and gently hint, without ever stating, that you know where there's a huge drug distribution camp you're planning on stopping at. How it's ultra uber secret and only the burniest burners can get near the place. Always planning on stopping by a little later, maybe tomorrow, maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow morning.... have them following you around and survielling you all week for nothing. Probably end up getting searched on the highway as you leave but man it would be satisfying to know you wasted their precious time for a week while people all around you were doing their thing.

Amusing, but I do hate being followed. I will adhere to my plan of indignant shrieking when indecent proposals are made. It sends up the alarm to adjacent camps. Hey--it works for prey animals on the plains of Africa.

The Golden-Breasted Starlings quickly raise the alarm and crisis is averted . . . for one more day.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

And that also would assume you were planning a completely drug free time on the playa too!

Yeah, that's me. Not that I am against drugs, I've done my share (and then some) but these days I'm tested by my employer on a random basis so I keep it legal.

Three additions to my Playa clothing this year are a tee-shirt and hat that have "Undercover Police" written on them and a set of balls that when hit together flash red and blue.
