My advice: Do you thing and don't worry about the naysayers. It's a lot easier to find fault than to actually do something positive.


Thanks jkisha for getting it, like most people do :D

My only problem is, I actually DO believe we can all "win", but that's tempered with the realization that critics with pain somewhere else in their lives have a lot to deal with.
Thanks Lemur for reminding me and giving me that perspective.

Anyway, lemur, once you start reading social history in the time of Stalin, all these creepy, millenarian idealists, who need to belong to something so bad they lose all perspective start to look so misguided, that it's not even funny. Reading history in general fcuks up your brain...

yeaH good one Dr Phil.

i think ive seen that kinda thing before.. hmm

ONE day Zarathustra had fallen asleep under a fig-tree..

And there came an adder and bit him in the neck, so that Zarathustra cried with pain. It wriggled awkwardly, and tried to get away. "Do not go," said Zarathustra, "as yet have you not received my thanks! you have awakened me in time; my journey is yet long." "Your journey is short," said the adder sadly; "my poison is fatal."

When you have an enemy, then do not requite him good for evil: for that would shame him. Instead, prove that he did some good for you.


I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.-Matthew 5:39-45 (NIV)


well at least yer kickin it old school!

ah yes uhm.

thank you sftex !!! you have taught me how well adjusted and realistic i am!!

Has anyone figured out how much cubic space these noses are going to take and what kind of truck is going to have to be hired to bring them to the playa?

Seriously.... I put one of these on the other day here in N. Nevada with a typical 25-30 mph afternoon wind ablowin'.
It lasted about 5 seconds.
These things tend to want to work their way off your nose and the wind just speeds up the process.
As light as they are, once airborne, theys travel at pretty much the speed of the air around them. I'd wear one on playa, but It will be tethered to a string/lanyard around my neck.

thats fine and dandy, but heres a thought...


lets say i gifted 1000 down pillows.


most people would be responsible, and use them for a good nights sleep, or a pleasant nap.


100 drunk fucks will have a pillow fight on the playa.


who is to blame for the mess?


i am.

Point.

Dear "artist"
I don't think your pillow idea is a workable AS PRESENTED.
Maybe it would help if you put some heavy canvas covers on them....or use rocks instead of feathers.

50,000 people wearing clown noses would be quite unique. Really!

Unless you're saying you've seen 50,000 people wearing clown noses before.

Open them simultaneously and they'll suck up all the air on the playa as they reconstitute, creating a barometric low that results in thunderstorms and RAINBOWS
Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Surprisingly little, even without vacuum bagging nor optimized stacking. Same for the little plastic bags and business cards.
Put each into their individual plastic bag with the business card and that's another matter.
Wonder how many man-hours it takes to, 50,000 times, put a nose & card into a little plastic bag.

Seeing 50,000 people doing the same thing while thinking they're being unique isn't anything new.

And if they blow out into the Black Rock Desert, would BLM fine/charge you, and/or make you pay for the cleanup, for such a "foreseeable consequence"?

55,000 fully uncompressed 2" diameter foam clown noses packed in the least efficient possible manner would take up a volume of 255 cubic feet. This could easily fit into a large 6' x 12' U-Haul cargo trailer. With more realistic sphere packing, I am pretty sure that they could fit into a smaller 5' x 10' trailer with little difficulty other than rolling out the back.

Note that the passenger space of a standard Camry is about 100 cubic feet, so with reasonable compression one should be able to easily get all the noses in the back seat.
