the symbolism of the effigy ties the Burn into a rich cultural, religious, and historical tapestry
Like other confused virgins, there are many who have arrived as ravers but left as full-fledged participants.
50,000 unwashed freaks in the desert for a week, driving mutant vehicles, sharing everything in a gift economy and dancing for hours on end to oontz oontz music while many are in states of questionable sobriety? You might think everyone at Burning Man is a hippie; you might argue that Burn culture is a descendent of the counterculture that came to prominence during the 1960s, but has roots which go back much further.
If you did make these arguments, youâ€™d probably be right. But while some hippies embrace the term, for others itâ€™s used with (playful?) disdain. You might be a hippie, but weâ€™re serious artists, musicians, Burners, etc (see also: Burnier-than-thou).

you as a linguist can appreciate the subtle difference and nuance that words can have.
WE ARE ZIPPIES
and we are entirely new DNA...
put that in your DMT pipe and smoke it.
