Best rumor so far:

"The remaining 10,000 tickets will be distributed to theme camps and mutant vehicles."

God I hope there is some truth in that. We will see today I guess.

Can anyone in Reno verify this rumor?

In the ticket tread, someone's dad heard from his neighbors in Reno that they should all enter the ticket lottery with no intention of going and sell any tickets they get for profit, and said that they heard about doing that from a local radio station.

Is this true? Did anyone else in Reno hear this first-hand? Does anybody know which station and DJ their referring to? I'll happily start calling the station and it's sponsors and explain the economic impact of burners avoiding spending their money with them.

Heh, yeah, I know, "Random eplayan's dad's neighbors heard _____" is not enough to make me take action. Maybe all the DJ said was that tickets were sold out last year and that the ticket lottery was happening, and it occurred to the neighbors to become amateur scalpers and enter the lottery based on that info without any encouragement. But if someone can tell me for sure I'd feel better.

I hope it is true, and we get the dust storms we expect for this year.
An episode or 2 of them going stir crazy in their RV (or better yet caught unprepared in the deep playa) and then leaving in defeat is _exactly_ the kinda press burning man needs right now.

I've heard the Burning Man office staff will rotate out by lottery every year.

Priority will be given to those who actually have a theme camp.

I am imagining the studio audience reaction to that, and it is hilarious. Wild, instinctive, reflexive cheering for 20 seconds, followed by a sharp drop into confused murmuring and even some angry muttering . . . while the two soccer moms in the back who actually know what the Burn is--and want to go--keep losing their @#$% extra loud. :lol:

Let's Make a Deal would be awesome at the Burn. Everyone's already dressed in interesting ways, and are guaranteed to have strange items on their possession, for the part at the end where Monty Hall offers $50 to anyone with a roll of toilet paper in her purse.

You couldn't offer money, so Monty Playa would have to offer . . . a sizzling hot steak.

And he could be wearing a jacket and tie, and that's it.

Hopefully he doesn't also have to grill the steak.

Let's Make a Deal on the Playa
Montee: "Behind one of these doors is a Mutant Art Car
"Do you choose door #1, Door # 2, or Door # 3?"

Contestant "Oh man, I just wanted a drink... Umm Can I have all of them??"

Montee: "Er no, just one.."

Contestant: "Ahhh.. Okay #3"

Montee: "Before we see what you have won, let's see what is behind door # 2"
"You could have had your very own Fratboy!!!"

Announcer: "Yes, you could have had Dave, a third year Freshman from Summa Greeka Letters fraternity, he is here with only the shirt on his back; everything else he lost after drinking too much last night and he could have been your complete responsibility.."

Montee: "You chose door # 3, but I am going to give you a chance to change your mind and a hint, behind one of the two remaining doors is Miss Jubilee Sparklepony. Now do you want to stay with Door # 3, Change to Door #1 or would you rather take the mystery box?"

Contestant (sniffs, wrinkles nose); "I'll take the Mystery Box?"

Montee: "You have just won a plate of Bacon...."
