Mutant vehicles are a very large part of the art of Burning Man. No doubt about it. Wouldn't be the same without them. So are body lights and crazily lit bicycles. Light is the key to the nighttime playa experience. Stargaze at Yosemite or someplace quiet.
However, I have a rather large beef with only one mutant vehicle and its operators: I had a theme camp in 2006 and was on the playa for a couple days after the official end of the event, dismantling the camp. One dark night a large silver ship came ripping through my camp at 9:30 and Chance. Mind you, the event was over but the streets were still there, and so were many other theme campers. BRC had not reverted to open playa. This vehicle was not on the street, it was running at about 30mph THROUGH MY CAMP. My tent was standing, I was sleeping in it until I heard the roar of this vehicle bearing down on me. I stuck my head out the door in time to see this huge ship miss my tent (and me) by merely two or three INCHES. We still had other tents up, and a 38-foot silver bus parked in camp. To me, this MV's operator was just way too fucked up to be operating anything more threatening than a toilet handle. Granted the event was over, but does that mean the end of reason on the playa? Fuck the disclaimer; no one needs to get killed at any time on the playa by some lame idiot at the wheel of a large heavy vehicle driving through camps. I didn't attent the 2007 burn, but am looking forward to confronting this MV's operating team this year.
Infinity = 1; since 1 / infinity = 1, zero is an absolute impossibility. The reason triangles are so unlike other polygons is that a triangle is part of a polygon bridging two dimensions.
