prjindigo: Only thing anybody that goes to burning man has ever done from scratch is open a scab...If you have to go to a catered party to "rough it" then you've got no place helping people OR entering New Jersey.
Stinkyy: If you don't do drugs, is it worth going out there? o_OIn that same vein, will hippie topless babes (the best kind) shun my magic dragon?

flux: p the boiler: but then I'll be a guy in his mid-50s standing around a lot of young naked women, I think I might come off as a pervert.The reason to go to Burning Man is that it's the one place where you can really stop giving a shiat what you "come across" as. You could run around with a prosthetic penis on your forehead and "PERVERT" painted on your chest in glitter, and you would get whistles and thumbs up. If you've just got like, a t-shirt and shorts on, nobody is going to even notice you.
Fark Rye For Many Whores: wearing furry purple pants while tripping on 2CT7 and convulsing to dubstepI hate to be all onionbelt here but I had to look that up. Cyberpunk has been predicting "designer drugs" for as long as I've been alive but now they're here and I don't know what 2CT7NBOH/NBOM/etc are.

spentmiles: What do you want to bet it's one guy with money and talent and a whole bunch of hanger-on's, mooches, and chicks who basically fark for money.
Magorn: Stinkyy: If you don't do drugs, is it worth going out there? o_OIn that same vein, will hippie topless babes (the best kind) shun my magic dragon?I've personally never done any drug but ethanol in various delicious, brewed, pressed and/or single-malted varieties, and I damn sure wouldn't on playa because when I meet a gorgeous, naked, Asian girl who was a martial-arts expert, neuro-trauma surgeon, rock guitarist with a keen interest in particle physics ( I did) I want to know that really happened and I didn;t trip out while watching <i> Buckaroo Banzai</I>
Keigh: Stinkyy: If you don't do drugs, is it worth going out there? o_Oabso. fuc*ing. LUTELY.it is NOT a giant drug party. It's a giant ART festival with street signs.

Magorn: ou need to go beyond your physical and mental comfort zones once in a while if you ever hope to grow or learn about yourself.
Keigh: I'm going to have to look into whatever it is you're talking about, but just fyi, I think that if you have a digital over the air channel box, you can still get some very snowy static.
Keigh: Could it possibly? I THINK IT CAN!In fact, i'm getting started on the planning TODAY by farkying anyone in this thread who comes out as a Burner in a lovely burny shade of orange!
oldfarthenry: [i1151.photobucket.com image 213x320]Some people just want to watch the world burn - ing - man.*snert*Made an unintentional funny.I'm off to help my fellow man, man - cuz it's the right thing to do.
flux: techbuzz: Burning Man Fark Party!?MAKE IT HAPPEN!
p the boiler: I really want to go out to Burning Man some time - but 3 kids and a job make that difficult to accomplish - when they move out maybe, but then I'll be a guy in his mid-50s standing around a lot of young naked women, I think I might come off as a pervert.
Magorn: It's easy to dismiss Burner's as an analgamation of Trustifarians, Hippies and raver kids with a few Mad max cos-players thrown into the mix. To to be sure there are some of all of the above in the "Burner" family, but after more than a decade of running a regional burn I can tell you you'd be astonished at how incredibly competent many of these folks are and how many amazingly useful skills they often have. It was only recently that I realized that it unusual to know as many women as I do who are amazing with an arc-welder and kick-ass on a lathe or drill press as I do for example; and I've seen many pull off logistical feats that would make an Army quartermaster jealous or a AF loadmaster blush (hell more than one of them I know WERE ex-loadmasters). MacGuyver would be considered only "slightly handy" compared to many of these folks, particualrly the DPW types who work to do set up and take down of the Big Burn or even our regionalThe burn I've been involved in is hoping to buy a fair chunk of farm land for a permanent home soon, and I'll just say this: if the Zombie apocalypse/collapse of civilization ever comes, that's where I'm taking my family. The skill set of everyone I know personally who would be there (from the EMTs, trauma, surgeons, sculptors, engineers, farmers and even an Ex-SEAL or two) would give us a fighting chance of re-booting civilization after the dust settled
