I want to marry Jester. I hear Polygamist's make good partner's.

Correction: Jester and Auntie M...and Trilo...and... I'm getting all "more open minded and enlightened" feeling by the minute. It must be a sign because there was a special on 20/20 about polygamy last night too. I'm skipping the "sex is only for procreation purposes" part tho.



Wow, now I know how all those 12 year olds in asian cultures who enter into arranged marriages feel.


Ok, but I warn you that I snore and I can't sleep if my feet are covered.

Also, I'm an atheist, allergic to cats and fish (I'll let you figure that one out), am totally open to being a kept man, and am currently engaged.

I'm hoping that it's cool if I get to keep her, too.

Burning Man and There Capitalist Lottery!!

Is it really necessary to bring this element in to an event that we know and love?

Ticket lottery for the people who register over the first two weeks of ticket sales get surprised with a charge to their bank account for $240.00, $320.00 or $390.00 dollars a few weeks later. And for those of us that are buying a ticket for ourselves and our partner get to double that fun.

The ORG knows that over 25,000 tickets are going to be sold in this first two week period and people that are hoping to get a $240 dollar ticket are going to get shocked by not just a $390 sticker price but by an actual bank draft to their account.

Maybe you are team spent a bit too much time drinking the gamblers water in Reno post burn. I think that this kind of money game is not needed or necessary. It is a terrible thing to force upon the people that are the most committed to making Burning Man more than an event and a part of their lives.

You need to just charge one fee for the first 40,000 people!!

Since you know you need 13 million, 50 thousand dollars for this number of tickets than just charge everyone $326.25 per ticket for this range!!!

Your solution for your failed ticket system is a bad one.

In the words of a wise burner, "This is not very PLAYA of you!"
