wh..sh! Shame on you. Have you no soul?

They saw the energy in each other's dance, and they locked eyes across the crowd. Then they locked lips. It was love at first fondle.

Clearly, the universe wants them to be together. Clearly, the universe wants them to be at Burning Man.

Never trust anyone you meet while locking eyes & dancing. Anything done while dancing in inherently untrustworthy.





Locking eyes over a fire-pit is another story...

Maybe you did. :lol:

There are far more embarrassing things to have sold your soul for!

I confess that that was so full of treacle that my arteries hardened when that was merely on the screen.
When I beg for tickets:
There I was, mindless meaningless sex; off the cuff hedonism; careless moments; no spiritual moments; no deeper connections made; yelling at people at the burns because I hate crowds; not even drinking a lot...
Obviously I missed something, gimme a ticket so I can do it right.

And speaking of mindless, meaningless sex and things that lock on the playa...

Mr. "Free Ticket to the Right Girl (as determined by looking at a photo)" seems to have found himself a candidate. A clever lass, at that: She posted her email address right in the thread. :roll:

Don't know, but thought it was cute that someone warned her about posting her email address. Like she'll care.

Thanks to Rice for saying something to her, and to Savannah for helping her out.

If that means what I think it means...then just how is a guy supposed to get laid around here? Geez, let the new meat fend for themselves. :shock:

Holy crap - they are not really brothers, don't care if they only get one ticket, and are willing to pay over the ticket price.

Damnit, all these years and I am just now finding out that burning man has the final answers?????

I'm a bit puzzled by the guy sitting on several RV reservations. What he's offering seems to suggest that he hoarded up a bunch of RV reservations (which carries some financial risk, those companies usually have cancellation fees), presumably to sell or trade for profit? I suppose RV scalpers were inevitable - could have been going on for years, this is the first time I noticed.

WTF does
You've come this far to read this post, so now you should realize your calling
mean, anyway? Is this like realizing that you have a vocation for the priesthood? Oh, my calling is to give him a ticket? Isn't that kind of a pathetic life? "Oh, I had a happy marriage, went to the burn, raised children, fought evil, but what really makes my life worthwhile is giving this guy and his celestial brother a ticket."

I am curious about the new kid. His weirdness is ticketing-related, so I posed some questions about him here. But I decided to gossip about him in Da Bar, instead. Apologies for the cross-posting.

Nevermind the reverse scalping.... isn't his email address (with the explicit mention of a wish to fashion playawear in his post) a blatant commercial plug?
