TdF (and everyone else) very cool!! (I suck at quoting everyone so I mentioned you all in bulk, haha)
I read the printed lexicon above, it's short. It seems Kit is trying to create an updated lexicon. Good. Things do evolve and the BM lingo is hilarious and useful. (where's Simon and so many others! in the bar3!?! drunk, lol)
Not to sound negative here (I stumbled into the "Survival" thread, yipes!) for some reason I am only remembering these terms/words...maybe they can be added and or described and maybe one eliminated.
Meltdown;____________________? (I saw one of those, ugh)
MOOP Nazi; A burner who adheres striclty to the LNT principal and let's it be known they are on the lookout, a MN's ultimate goal is a dark green grading on the moop map in their camp (and beyond) (no, I wasn't mooping but uh, was reminded a lot and yes, we got the dark green grade) btw, some of the nearby, surrounding red grades were where some great action took place, but still, maybe more ground tarps needed
Hippie Magic; It's science but hippies think it's "magic" or think it appears to be "magic"
Stowaway; (self explanatory)
Hippy;_________________(misspelled or a hippie/hipster? or vis a vis?)
Hippie; (self explanatory)
Stealth Hippie;________________(ok, I made this one up but uh....
has Job, not afraid of "'work" nor is that a bad four letter word, good hygene etc)
Artfag; a burner who came to see the art,_____(I saw this on eplaya or? not sure?) I don't like it, to test it, I said it a few times to burners I know, each time it caused pain/angst in the person's face. I could see it in one persons eyes, faaaar too strong. Seems like an awful, default world word used too frequently i.e. the "N" word. Maybe in SF Bay Area it's OK/thicker skin? But uh, what about the rest of the world? Does the Artery use it? I doubt they do.
I hope it dies, dries up, turns into dust and blows away for good.
Chasing Big Burns;______________________(OK, I made it up but I did it, a lot! I Think it sort of plays off of "Chasing Shadows" the opposite I recall.
I'll try to refresh my memory for the happy words I heard but most have been posted...and I'll steer clear of the "Survival" thread for a while! Whoa!*shudder*
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!
