Yes, but be sure to wear your face masks.

Are we supposed to be surprised that a rave has a DJ?

What are fairy lights?

Think Christmas Tree lights.

Sounds like there was a battle...(looks upthread)

Aw, damn it *kicks rock*

So now you can't even go into the effing forest and dance? Somebody better tell the Wiccans.
 
2020-08-09 3:03:06 PM  
They would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those epping kids.

Not exactly, they're teeny tiny lights with thin wire you can barely see.

Who holds a rave in an Epping forest?

They can shove the glow sticks up their arse if they catch the Rona', the Prez told me so.

You can do that as a preventative measure as well.

Wow.

What a sinister yet sensational element mentioning them brought to the story.

I used to produce a weekly public access show where I videotaped Bay Area raves. It ran for five years, thinking I would get somebody to sponsor it. (1999-2004)

Everybody knew folks watched my show, everybody knew me, but so many producers would tell me, "But I don't see why I should pay you, because you need that footage for your show, anyway." Instead of debating them, I'd just say, "Well, if you don't understand how that helps you, you're not a real player."

You would be amazed at the things I saw.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion?

C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate?

A 'friend' of mine attended the camping one in the Forest of Dean as mentioned in a Fark thread a while ago. Not anywhere near as big but an equally dangerous thing to do. He seemed proud of it. I told him he was an idiot and to stay the fark away from me for a few weeks. Difficulty, he's a co-worker.

Idiots gonna idiot I suppose.

There appear to be quite a few raves around the A406. The sound of the police helicopter always tells me when it's about to finish.

Like regular fairies but with fewer calories.

I came for a reference to The Battle of Epping Forest. I am leaving satisfied.

Getting a kick out of this, currently living in Epping Forest, albeit in Maryland.

Dudes, you should have thrown your rave in New Zealand.

Uh-oh. I have been told several times that only Americans do this sort of thing.

Think christmas lights but with the lights dimmer and closer together. They do not provide as much light as christmas lights.

I didn't realize there was another Epping Forest somewhere.

It's also a yacht club in Jacksonville...unfortunately I don't think they're having any raves, which is probably why their membership is declining so precipitously.

Ah yes, that sprawling Richer zone between San Marco and Mandarin... notice how every single person in those pictures is a particular shade of beige. It may very well be the only place in Duval County that hasn'tseen a battle.
