The Crazies are Arriving in Full Force

Postby Elderberry » Sun Nov 13, 2011 4:02 pm

OMG have you read some to the latest posts? KaRAzY :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
viewtopic.php?f=290&t=52408

I'll quote from the second one:
I'm afraid that the Ticket/Lottery issue, is the least of our Burning Man problems. I have a terrible sense of impending chaos in 2012 Black Rock City. This may be enough, for me to not go. I want my burn to be peaceful, not full of malice. This is not funny to anyone who remembers them from way back when. I can't even bring myself to say:

The {*word i shall not speak} Society.

Here's the content of the email I received, without the link. I'm sure the link is a virus.

"Remember Us?
We control the Lottery, and many things yet to come.
We are the WHO that arrange's things in your house when your not looking...
The itching, burning that no ointment will ever soothe...
The monkey virus in the Big Top.
The kitsch loving anarchists of Life's Gravy Boat."
DEAL WITH IT!

I think they have infiltrated eplaya. I changed my screen name the other day, because of an ominous phone call, just prior to the JRS email about the tickets.

Be careful out there....these are not just peaceful protesters. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I don't know if I have the energy in me anymore to battle with these guys. We need the younger generation to step up.
It's your turn.

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

What's sad is that it's not just the newbs. I've seen plenty of off the wall, illogical, panic stricken ridiculousness from many eplaya regulars as well.

Hopefully if the past is any prediction of future differences between eplaya and the actual event, many people will travel to the desert and have a great fucking time, while other people will.......
See you in 2014

Are arriving?? I think they have been here for a while...

Ever since the tickets sold out, this board has been nuttier than usual!

Looks like just a bunch of people freaking because they are afraid they won't win a lottery. Pretty normal stuff when you think about it in context. You got people who are really fragile freaking out and threatening to jump off a bridge and others being calm, others clueless.

My problem is I get addicted to reading the train wrecks and get nothing else done....

This is right up there with the sold out ticket panic in July....the self righteous, the whiners, the beggars, the hippies asking for a miracle... :roll:

LOL I know what you mean!

Though I have a lot more sympathy for the large theme camps and the uncertainty the lotto is causing.

Yep, the uncertainty principle is the only thing bugging us right now.

I mean yeah, I am pretty confident that all of our core people that get in the lotto thing first round will get a ticket and so no worries, but...

* feelings of hollowness
* front pain
