That makes no sense at all. You have to wear clothes when you riot, or you'll get all scraped and beat up.

This makes no sense either: Baby born in loo and accidentally flushed away fights for life

What would we do without The Sun?

Hm. Maybe I'll chance it, because there's always at least one tag that has nothing to do with the article.

"Yobs"?

Was the band playing Beethoven at the time?

Yes, and then I was disappointed when I read the article and realized it was only a group of over privileged babies throwing a fit. Hopefully these malicious criminals "friends" will post pictures on Facebook and the cops will bust them.

1. From weather.com for Dover, Easter day:

Hi 47°F
Lo 36°F
Rain

My guess: didn't happen on the open deck.

2. FTA: set ashtrays alight

You gotta admit- Nude Ferry Riot is a pretty good name for a rock band.
 
2012-04-09 02:24:57 PM
When the British gave up their guns, they became subjects, not citizens.

Oops. Perhaps not.

Still, if they had guns and concealed carry permits, this could be easily solved.
Or swords and planks.

One of the most karmically uncertain things I've ever done was save the life of a furry at a regional Burn. He'd gotten too close to a raging bonfire and his suit was beginng to smolder and burn, but it was too insulated for him to notice. He wasn't terribly appreciative of my "forced stop, drop, and roll technique:" (think middle linebacker on a stunt blitz) at least until he saw the places on his suit that had already melted.

Yobs smashed glasses and bottles, overturned tables and set ashtrays alight on P&O ship Spirit of France.

Aren't ashtrays normally made of fire-proof materials?

Thank you for the LOL. I found the mental image of some poor furry taking an unexpected tackle quite humorous.

Well Burning Man is in the middle of a desert. Not many ferries about.

When the boat has a name like "Spirit of France", I have no problem with the necessary actions taken by these patriots of debauchery. Good job, lads. Good job. Next time, take more pictures.

Suck it, frogs.

Don't pay the ferryman, don't even fix a price, don't pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side.

It may be callous of me, and I'm sorry for you personally, but all this biatching about the BM ticket cap is so old hat to me. My regional is capped because of current space limitations to 1500 tickets. We sell them in two separate drops online and they are usually sold out in less than a minute. The kind of wailing and gnashing of teeth you are currently hearing on the e-playa , I've dealt with for more than 5 years. And I must say it saddens me how many people who say they are devoted to "radical inclusion" are willing to demand we create schemes to make sure "the right people" are the ones who get tickets (my regional doesn't comp AT ALL and even the BOD and Infrastructure coordinators (DPW, Rangers, Fire team) are only allowed ONE reserved ticket (no dso, no kids, they take their chances like everyone else).

Our solution is to save up (we've got a quarter mil or so currently) and buy a few hundred acres of PA Farmland to call our own. Maybe some devoted burners should pass the hat and grab themselves a few thousand acres of prime wasteland from one of the nearby Reservation tribes. I'm sure they'd sell (especially if they reserved the mineral rights)
