changoloco, are you going to be enforce this ban? If not, then who? Will they be handing out citations to the violators? Will they have their glowsticks and feathers taken away?
I think that bmorg is doing their best by saying that feathers=moop in as many places as possible.

I would love to enforce this ban, unfortunately, my fiance is attempting to help me to become less bossy and I think that she would take exception to me enforcing it. So for now, I would just prefer to get it into the survival guide. But, if I am really, really needed, I will become the feather/glowstick cop for a day.

I think you should! You have 11 months to find the perfect feather/glowstick cop uniform.

I had 15' of EL. By Thursday, when the bike was "borrowed", I was down to 9'. Everyday a foot or two would break off. Where? I had no clue. I switched to Glowsticks in the spokes of my next loaner. Never lost one.

I think it's a much closer call than people realize, comparing glow stick pollution and waste to electronic light stick + battery pollution and waste)

Trust me, I wanted nothing more than to put my ostrich feathers in my wigs but ended up not doing it. I'm working on coming up with maybe a way to do an l wire version of the ostrich feather? I loved the fiberoptic hair clips too, they were feathery. but at least feathers are from nature. . . better than man made plastic moop.

Also~ how many more damn darkies would there be if it wasn't for glo sticks? Our camp actually gifted darkies with glow sticks so we would see them . . . sorry. :roll:

Um. Maybe it's because I'm a middle-aged woman who read too much, but "darkies" just sets off the bells.

It is amusing that currently the thread following this one is a rant against darkwads.

DancesWithElves -I am also ready to cross that line into forced feather feeding! But I won't be able to stop at the dropped feathers, I'll put the whole wing down their throats.

thank you mars for your greeter ? because of the unbelievable amount of butts...which also goes for homerolled little 1/4 inch papers with burned tips I picked up all over the place.

You can have the look of feathers without using feathers.

Well I was going to add a picture I took of the peacock art car, but it's not posted online. So pretend you saw the awesome display of non-feathered feathers.

It's like I'm real now, where before I was only imagining me.

don't hate me because i'm a permanent darkwad.


i like it that way, and i've been out there longer than your mama washed your clothes for you, so fuck off with your blinkies, and dont fuck with my burn, you goddamn light-heads and L-Wire Junkies.


The shadows are my domain.


As far as Glowsticks go, they are non-re-usable, and at approx 10 sticks per participant (a reasonable, conservative estimate) that means over a half a million of those fuckers....

that must be a whole eighteen fucking wheeler of cheap chinese plastic because YOU had to put little rings on your utilikilt that light up and call it a "Costume"...


suck it.

How about no more rules added to the massive list of rules and laws we already have?

Just use your freaking heads and pick up what you drop. Or just don't drop ANYTHING!
Does your feather boa make that kinda hard to do? Don't bring it, ass-face!

But, no matter what.....on your way out, gift your ass off to the DPW on the way out/anybody else that's not leaving. They're the one's that make this event possible for the next year.

Yes... that made me sort of cringe. Should probably stay away from that particular descriptive.
