The designers hope that the show demonstrates the possibilities of drone performance

Absolutely. Then we can add lasers to the show, and probably fireworks for at least part of it. Artisan fireworks, made by artists. The Blue Angels will fly overhead on hang gliders as they wave American flags (sponsored). The finale will be angels coming down from heaven to pick up the bodies of all those who died in the delirium of seeing drones--drones!--doing a light show. "This" they thought as their eyes glazed over, "Nothing can top this. Nothing is more authentic than this."

We have a campsite in a box canyon where you can have a nice fire and not attract the attention of the authorities, we had a great party with about 40 people there. Plenty of room for tents and off road type campers and trailers, everyone chipped in for the main event food and drink, and brought their own breakfasts and lunches. Family friendly event so those getting too nutty were asked to tone it down or leave. Went back a couple months later and didnt see another soul for two days...

""The man raising its arms in joy ready to embrace its fellow humans is a symbol of reaching out to embrace one and another," said Nauta and Van Oostrum. "It's all about spreading the love we need so much," they continued."

Spread the love for each other by not having gatherings that may spread the virus.

I agree that it would be nice to be back to the old normal. But not only are infections and deaths going up, no one really has any idea if or when this ends. I'm just so confused as to why so many people want to behave as if we are out of the woods regarding COVID.

Some friends of mine would go to Burning Man every year before the pandemic. This year, they camped out on a beach in Hawaii with some Burning Man friends of theirs. They built their own little man out of fronds and husks from a nearby coconut tree and set the effigy on fire on the beach.

They seemed to have a good time, so I'm happy for them.

People that go camping and listen to jam bands have a BO that can only be classified as a chemical weapon.

zenki36830: id go to burning man if it were in the north near water and not in a horrible desert.


oh and to edit/add to that i would also go if it wern't full of dirty hippies. and jam bands.. perhaps some industrial bands who would most likely prefer to be around water and working bathrooms.

More and more people think "Camping" is hooking up an RV and watching Dish TV

burning man ran out of edgy steam years ago. for a decade now it is like a 30 year old showing up at a high school party trying to be cool but only being pathetic.

Naw here's how to have the Burning Man on the cheap:

1) Set up a speaker in your backyard. Play dubstep and EDM at 120 db.

2) Turn off your AC. Set your oven at 500 degrees.

3) Buy a crap load of talcum powder and rent some industrial strength fans.  Once it's past 100 degrees in your house through the powder into the air and turn off your fans.

4) For added versimilitude, have your favorite dealer bring over some really hot people who are way out of your league. Have your local comic book guy talk about cosplay through a megaphone as the hot people have sex on your floor.

Ugh. "Throw the powder in the air and turn on your fans."
