If you gift me a mansion in Brazil I will let you work with the locals in my Pineapple fields.

If I could afford to buy a mansion in Brazil, do you think I would need miracle pineapples? USE YOUR THINKING CAP SIR

Just wanted to say that I know I need to chill out about this and and stop being snarky to the "deserving souls," particularly since I am but a mere virgin. I think the reason it gets to me so much is that money is so incredibly tight for me right now because I've decided to go to BM. In truth, by going I'm being kind of fiscally irresponsible. But I'm the one who decided to put myself in a this financial crunch, and I sure as hell am not going to ask perfect strangers to help fund my burn. I haven't even asked people I know in real life to do so! I understand that gifting is one of the BM principles, but aren't these people taking it to far? And, I'm curious, do so many people looking for miracle tickets suddenly come out of the woodwork like this every year?

not to worry. the asking for a free or "miracle" ticket is nothing new. And did not start with burning man. Anytime there is a big event there will be people asking for free tickets. It is annoying (and also amusing) but there it is. Just like little miss "save no money, make no money, have no job. Work on a farm and help with growing vegetables" , Some think that "gifting" means we should be more than willing to provide a free ticket. Not So! burning Man is not a free ride. $380 for a ticket, $1000 to cover cost of transportation and supplies needed to survive in a harsh desert environment. The gifting part happens after you have been radically self reliant.

Yes, it is an art show. And a big Party. And there are many who go who do not see anything more than that. And there may even be some big theme camps who do not see any more than that. But if you look under the surface you will see that there is much more there.

There are people who regularly buy an extra ticket or 2 to gift to someone they think is deserving. And some who find they cannot use the ticket they have and just gift it to someone else. So there are miracle tickets. Most of the deserving ones are not asking for one though.

Paging Laughing Forest. You ain't seen begging until you've seen this miracle worker, year after year. One supposes she got her miracle on early this year. I worry about the poor dear, alone in this universe.

Oh, "environmental protector/goddess"
Funny, I don't work with any goddesses. Is proclaiming yourself a goddess as shady as proclaiming yourself enlightened?

I'm a super duper deserving soul who was mocked mercilessly in the post I wrote a couple of days ago. But the people who wrote those mean things are dark dark souls, and I know there are also pure and loving souls on this board who the universe will work through to gift me a ticket. So I made a new post today to reach out to those beautiful souls. One of my favorite pastimes is panhandling for free Burning Man tickets. I did it last year, too. Alas, it didn't work; I am still a 4th year burner. There are bad souls on this board who are presently winning the war, sadly. But we glowing, loving souls will eventually defeat these forces of evil. Until then I will shamelessly beg complete strangers for $400.

To summarize: Need 1 ticket for this deserving, entitled soul who loves to mooch off of her loving brethren.

Namaste, my loves. )*(

You can be an honorary Sparklepony if you so choose.

I am a genuine Sparklepony and do not wear a pony tail as I prefer Thorobreds.
