How about the girls that came in before the man burned and then stood with us on the esplanade after they made camp, for a long time looking out past the fire onto the playa.
Finally one turns to me and says,
"So, where is the man, anyway?"

lady wandering around tuesday after the burn: "look, i have a plane to catch in reno in 2 hours. someone needs to take me there." she had blown off her ride the day before because she wanted to party one more night.

undercover female cop: "can i bum a cigarette?" (i hand her a cigarette)
undercover female cop: "do you have anything ELSE to smoke?" me: "sorry, i don't bring drugs out here." cop holds up her hand for a high-five. i high-five her and she walks away.

undercover male cop on bike: "do you know where i can find some barbiturates?" me: "no, but we're doing heroin later." undercover male cop: "really?" me: "yep, right after the child porn theatre." cop rides away.

patron tequila night on the bar car... every third person: "do you have any mixers?"

the eternal question: "where are you from?"

man arrives at my camp and presents me with a box. me: "what you got there?" man: "feces. someone left it in my camp last night." ... because i was camped near a cafe village and bunch of DPW, i figured he naturally assumed i should take care of it. and i did.

tuesday after the burn, a man with slave: "do you allow flogging at your table?" me: "is it tuesday?"

middle of the night - a BRC ranger joking and laughing with LEOs as they raided the camp adjacent to mine. (one of the camp members had been caught smoking a joint on the playa). when I asked the BRC ranger for information on the bust so that we may later assist our neighbors, i was dismissed and told to move away.

Flatlander, how about when two of our campmates, step out of the tent and both are wearing strapon's.. When asked what happening tonight?
They spoke up and said, "Oh, were putting on a fisting clinic tonight"
The whole camp, wished them well for the night....

And Yes, Danny was still sewing sequins on your cod piece :shock: :roll: :shock:

In center camp, in 2001. Was a stage set up, with a naked lady dancing to burlesque music. As she danced she put on various pieces of clothing. A man in the audience yelled "YEAH! PUT IT ON BABY!"

Last year a friend and I took a bottle of Famous Grouse and a truck out to the trash fence and danced on the flat bed. I look over and see this man walk up. When he got to the fence he shouts, "Somebody's gonna need a SHITLOAD of dimes!" and starts laughing maniacally and then turned around and vanished into the dust. My friend and I stared at each other for a good minute and burst out laughing.
