who would win?

Postby tattoogoddess » Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:40 pm

I came across a funny subject/discusion on twitter. Who would win- The Gathering or Burning Man?

Of course Burning man would win! What do you think and give the reason why.

1.We have a massive amount of actual fire power. POOF POP POOOOOOFFF!
2. 3 WORDS....Jet....Fuel....Bomb
3. The city is far better for a attack. we are a semi circle. ROUND EM UP1

once you see it, it can never be undone. Basically a violent cult of misguided brainwashed kids and young adults that go out and camp for a weekend doing drugs,beating people up, mooping like crazy.

I need brain bleach now. Yes, what has been seen cannot be unseen.

Maybe have our e wasted dub-tards face off against them in a big cage match and the world could be rid of both?

Burning Man would win, by brainpower, if nothing else. (A full listing of reasons why Burning Man would win would take too long to write down, even for a faster typist than I!)

I thought The Gathering was a card game for geeks.
Burning Man has burrowed into modern culture like an ear-worm. And the pretenders? Who are they, did you say?

I thought for sure "The Gathering" was short of Rainbow Gathering...

But still, Burning Man would also whoop that 'Gatherings' ass too.

Although I am not too certain about "Magic the Gathering." Some of the critters in that are DANGEROUS!

I don't know, but after watching those two videos, and letting their contents ferment for a while, I am wondering if that whole Insane Clown Posse/ Juggalo culture isn't some sort of cargo cult. Apparently they have a whole mythology and all. Plus, the girl seemed to be constantly trying to get her "cargo" from the radio folks.

P.S.: that coffin looks and awful lot like a cooler. I am pretty certain it ISN'T, but its styling...

True. But is the hyena a contestant?
