I can see within seconds of a frat boy's actions that he's a frat boy. I could probably point one out within a 5 minute stroll from any meet and greet, and I could probably show you ugly behavior from a frat boy within an hour of setting out on such a search. Does a litmus exist for identifying a hippie, a bad hippie anyway, or are they just mythical creatures in the night - like Goldstein?



My son joined us this year. He's 4th year Frat boy.. He's been watching Mom and Dad head off to TTITD since he was 8yrs old. He went with his older Cousins and no Frat Bros. He saw it our way this year and went home and puked "You got to go man" on everybody just like we all do. Were not going 2012 and he and his gang will go and he'll see what the hate is all about and learn his on way. I only hope he see what's happening around ticket time and keep his mouth shut. :shock:

I am not big on ravers or hippies but my belief in the 10 principles means that I can accept them for a week out of the year. The city is big enough to avoid them if you so choose. I steer clear of 2 and 10 for the most part and head towards the fire art on the open playa. I wish the ravers would stop with the glow sticks and the hippies would stop begging for cigs and the both of em could spend a lil time picking up after themselves. When asked for a smoke by a hippie I will tell em I dont smoke even tho one is hangin from my lips. When the ravers depart the rave camps I will wander thru and see what they left behind, sometimes you'll find some moop worth keepin as you pickup all the discarded glow sticks n such.

I toss the drugs in the trash with the glowsticks. I found a real nice camelbak at Roots one year and a real nice camera another. I had to return the camera as the owner had labeled it with name and such. I was however rewarded for delivering the expensive camera to its owner. The year after that I found a real nice matched pair of stainless water bottles amongst the 30 or so abandoned water bottles.

People just generally hate people who are different from themselves. A bunch of rednecks could be tilting back shots of whiskey while complaining how bad it is that hippies smoke pot. I think it makes them feel superior.

Hippies took over dominance from Ravers this year:

Burning Man Bureau of Labor Statistics (BMBLS) released a report on Wednesday showing that Hippies have now gained the upper hand at the event North of Reno.

Redneck = BIGOT! (don't even try to deny it, lmfao!) You self proclaimed "Rednecks" might want to try to find a better term for yourselves.

Gypsies = trouble!

Mooching Hippie = Bad Hippie

Good Hippie = Hippie (not spelled Hippy btw, duh)

Raver = Very High

Burner = Good Human Being
