Hey everyone, I'm justin, a university student from southern california. I'm craving adventure and burning man looks like the perfect place to go. A lot of my friends are too conservative to go so I'm looking to make a ton of new friends and have some crazy adventures! :P

Welcome! If you're looking for adventure, you've coming to the right place. May I recommend Camp Chubster if you're looking for a ton of new friends. Four campers should be about a ton! :shock:

Read the first timers guide several times, join the local burners group in your area and start gathering your stuff now---it's just 2 months away!

Now brace yourself for the time of your life!

See you on the playa.

Hey Justin, There are some conservatives that like to party on the playa. Last year I found Bush at BM :lol:

Student...conservative...southern California...odd mix, but I guess it could happen.
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

For much of the late 20th century, USC has had a reputation for being a politically conservative campus. In the politically charged times of the 1960s–70s, and in stark contrast to the University of California campuses, USC was one of the few campuses in California where then-Governor Ronald Reagan could visit without additional protection. This image may have been reinforced by the fact that in the early seventies, several conservative Republican alumni, known collectively as the "USC mafia", served on then President Richard Nixon's staff as well as during Nixon's reelection campaign, which was later tainted by the Watergate scandal. In the 1960s, the corrpution between conservative factions in student politics was noted in the screenplay for All the President's Men; the term ratfucking originates from that period. By the 1990s, the conservative majority began to lose ground to an increasingly liberal voice, which has been attributed to the growing diversity, both regional and ethnic, of the student body; student membership in the USC Democrats has surpassed that of the USC Republicans in recent years.

Welcome, Syn!

Hey there, welcome to eplaya!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me
