Nah- just pointing out that user-names have nothing to do with the ideas posted. Just because a user-name is silly doesn't mean the ideas from that person automatically are. The words they post matter, not the name they post them under (unless it's an obvious "HateLarryHarvey" or "BurningManSucks" troll name)

Hey Occupy BRC.... keep it light, keep it happy!!! DO not be a rebel Be FiNALLY FREE to just BE
the joy and love and laughter that we inherently are!!

My first burn I was with Sacred Spaces, yoga, massages, therapeutic workshops, etc... to much of
the SAME THING ID ALREADY DO... so instead of hanging around at camp all the time, I went out and
HUGGED 1008 People throughout the Playa.. and invited people to come get a massage at my camp
and experience some good living... but for myself, I wanted to immerse in the UNKNOWN, in the so far
unusual from my own life- thats what the burn is for!!

So best of luck... but don't take it too seriously and don't spend all your time on one idea.... BE READY TO
EXPLORE all kinds of lifestyles... that's the 99%...........

Ps I camped at Occupy SF until the final raid!!!

I camped at several occupations myself, the fanciful idea of the rangers being agent-provocateurs for the LEO's reminds me of the fanciful stories the anarchists told every day...about anybody who vaguely appeared in some authority position. For example, volunteer peacekeepers at the occupation who also happened to be Black Rock City Rangers.

OCCUPLAYA N:OW! has submitted their placement application. Lots of playaful words and games, Blank Ballot PRESidENT Voting Booth, PROtestconTEST, Wheel of Occuplaytion (spin the wheel, leave--go there.), the Baby Seal Club, Occuplayers Anonymous. . . . Just a few ways to express oneself.

Sounds like you have some inventive plans for interactivity. Best of luck!

We're working on a sort of 'Bill of Commandments', if you will, and have "safety" predictable placed at #3.
