Got no ticket here, yet, and I'm already working on alienating potential sellers well into 2015.........

Its probably a good thing to get away from this burning man obsession... ticket or no ticket.

Well, no. It's one less ticket, pretty much anyone deserves it over having it burned. That is waste by any definition.

Nah, the ticket could go to someone who is a negative presence, or benefits such a person in the transaction. Let it be burned rather than defiled.

Fair point, but I know for a fact he has friends still looking. That's where my disconnect is.

I'd imagine I'm the troll, but at least my spelling is usually correct :wink: Not really trolling tho, was shocked to see that video earlier, and have enjoyed the dialogue since.

Not any room for just one more out there? It's not a competition, ya know. You can all still be Royalty.

No one deserves to go to burning man.

There is no right way to burn. Everyone enjoys Burning Man in different ways. I highly doubt that you and I burn the same way. Neither of us is doing it the right way.

Every person who travels through the gate into BRC is privileged to be there.

That's being entitled to attend for free.

Deserving to go is really a two-party contract: where one party earns the right to go in the eyes of the other. You could deserve to go because you did something for a friend who has tickets and will give you one when you've earned it. Now whether anyone outside the contract allows it, that's another matter. Most people talk about "deserving" in some sort of worldly, objective sense, but they're just wrong about that.
