I realize that Badg calls it like he sees it.. and you don't even have to work to hard to "see" it with some people. That's.. why.. it's.. so.. funny.. :lol: :idea:

By the way, brah, I think you need new hobby.. I know all those HHO and GEET studies you're doing must need attending to.

For what it's worth, the tree wasn't chopped down or killed. I can't recall the exact particulars, but the tree was being moved/relocated for some other reason and essentially went on a side trip to Burning Man along the way. There were some legal requirements in hauling it back and forth, and essentially the tree had it's own "medical staff" (tree surgeon, arborist, or whatever you call it). The root structure was still intact on the playa, and it was brought back to California and replanted at its new location after the event. As far as I know, the tree is still alive (though I imagine you could probably reach out to Dan or any of the other team leads to inquire if you cared to).

The plan to bring the tree was intended to be kept as secret as possible (though Larry knew and had approved) with the intention being to put the tree up in the dead of night and just blow peoples' minds when they woke up the next day. But between the early burning of the man (which led to DPW & Ranger schedules being crazy from Monday on) and the fucking crazy weather in 2007, the Crude Awakening burn had to be postponed (a major dust storm hit on Friday that made it impossible for the Crude Awakening crew to properly test the fuel lines, so the decision was made to burn it after the man on Saturday). Between the last minute reschedule and already crazy DPW/Ranger reschedules, nobody at the gate was aware that permission had been given and nobody was able to reach Larry to verify the story at the late hour that the tree was coming through.


Yeah, heard it that way too. Larry was famous for defying all logic, reason, and everything those people agree on with their precious 'consensus' process.

Troll accusations and ad hominem attacks. Did we expect any more?

Notice how he tried to claim that I was using more electricity by saying I am using more and puchasing more when I am using less with what I replaced a broken PC with. Hes probably running a desktop or laptop which uses far more juice than my table.


Notice that the reply contained absolutely nothing pertaining to your electrical usage by the tablet versus your computer. Rather, the point was that it is delusional to believe that purchasing more equipment makes your carbon footprint smaller, rather than using what you already have. Most of the carbon footprint that goes into your tablet is in its manufacturing not in what power you use. You can make your carbon footprint smaller by just using or fixing what you have, and assuming better habits.

And again, spare me your ad hominem attacks.

Attacking, Trolling, Telling Lies...


The question is now: who?

Yeah I needed to know that.

But yeah... Reduce your "carbon footprint" on the electricity used by stuff you already own, by buying more electronic gadgets. That's how it works.


I think if you cited "the old PC I used for so long finally died" as your main reason for going tablet, you might not have prompted Badger to give his opinions on living green.

But then again, your little flame war (spark war?) with the more established members of this board is kinda fun to watch, so please ignore my advice.

Actually my post AND the one after it mention that. But Badger felt the need to only do a partial quote. Partial quoting is a typical troll tactic when they cannot say what they want AND keep the entire post quoted.

Much easier just to use the plonk feature and a firfox script to ignore people that want to argue all the time, people that think hydrogen isnt combustable, and people that think tablets are worse than notebooks and pcs when it comes to electricity and manufacture. Everyone lookin for a fight will no longer get one, they will get ignored forever instead.

So as you see there really was no need for me to cite a pc dying as it was cited. The need is for people to learn how to read an entire post and not to partially quote with the express intent of making their vitriol look like it has purpose. Yes indeed there was a VERY specific reason why badger chose to only quote part of my post in this case. Seriously, read my posts PRIOR to his attack where he used the partial quote tactic. Its in there as they say.

Better yet I will illustrate just this once.. this is what got the original post was before badger used the partial quote tactic.As you can see it was mentioned that my going with a tablet was the result of my notebook takin a shit, it did last 6 years so no complaints about toshibas.

Dont think I can do that with the tablet I am using. Droid has some limitations as opposed to a windows/mac. Thanks for the tip and I will try and see if I can do that easily. Its a pain in the ass just to paste a youtube link on the forum but I no longer have a working PC at home.

I omitted that detail because quite frankly it wasn't relative. The main jab of my reply was because that post reads as list of reasons trying to justify the purchase of the tablet by: 1) a computer "not working" at home, and 2) a reduced carbon footprint. Who even knows why your PC is "not working" at home? It doesn't mean it is necessarily broken. It could be because the tablet was purchased, that the machine ceased to work because you just didn't want it to.

The core complaint was this: to believe you're reducing a "carbon footprint" by buying new stuff is generally delusional. You could have repaired that PC with parts (assuming they got fried) rather than plopping down some odd hundreds of dollars just to own some new piece of kit, rationalizing that you're saving the earth by using less electricity with it, when the real carbon footprint is in its manufacturing. It's like fixing an old car versus going out and buying a new Toyota Pious Prius: rarely will the consumption reduction outweigh the initial energy investment.

Much easier just to use the plonk feature and a firfox script to ignore people that want to argue all the time, people that think hydrogen isnt combustable, and people that think tablets are worse than notebooks and pcs when it comes to electricity and manufacture. Everyone lookin for a fight will no longer get one, they will get ignored forever instead.


Oh that is such a shame, because I only reply to get a rise out of you. It's not, you know, to dispel dysinformation, or speak to the content of the the post.

So as you see there really was no need for me to cite a pc dying as it was cited. The need is for people to learn how to read an entire post and not to partially quote with the express intent of making their vitriol look like it has purpose.

I can't think what a narcist is. At first I thought that it was something that grew out of an irritation in the body in a horn shape, but then I realized that that would be spelled narcyst.

Yes, I believe that a narcyst is a pimple-like spike-shaped protrusion extending several inches out of the forehead. It is too disgusting even for the internet.

a NARCist is someone who adheres to NARCism, that is that the primary function of society and government in general is to prevent people from smoking devil weed - the source of all communism and strife. We must all do our part. Report suspicious behavior, watch your neighbors carefully, guard your precious bodily fluids.
