No grant??? NO SURRENDER!!!!

Wadges? Wadges? WE DON' NEED NO STEENKIN' WADGES!!!!

Though we didn't get a grant, we're moving ahead anyway with our project... for three inarguable, irrefutable, and unavoidably obvious reasons:

1. Giant wobbly towers are a middle finger to common sense
2. Experimental flame effects are totally badass
3. Big red buttons never go out of style

Over 300 great projects submitted, and junglesmacks did not give generously enough to BRAF to be able to fund them all. :wink:

Good luck with the project, peacekeeper!

Thank you Savannah, Junglesmacks, Tom - we too think that a) this is awesome and b) that we can just drag it kicking and screaming into "reality" by shouting at it really hard....

We didn't get a grant either in 2010, but that didn't stop us building one of these:

And STILL had enough left over to set its ass on fire REAL good...

So I'm pretty sure we can hustle this baby into existence on-playa, AND still have enough left for cheap whiskey to celebrate :twisted:

radical self reliance.

if you cant beg or borrow, steal it....

seriously.




Just Make sure you don't get caught, don't hurt anyone, and only steal from Corporations, because they're NOT people....Mug the Fuck out of them if you have to.


god luck and good speed...
