No, the full-time organization that makes it all happen has NO IDEA what kind of work goes into preparing for the event. No clue at all.

I call bullshit on the 'shroom. The photo is of those folks attending the 4th of Juplaya killing off yet another frogbat. If they left the frogbats alone, we'd be fine. The frogbats eat hippies, or didn't you know?

Hahaha Mr Rhino, as you know the problem is not hippies, it is ravers: "I went to every major worlddwide party already. And now I need to notch off BM on my __". There is a good argument the Paiute should reclaim their land.

So, what's the relationship between ravers and circuit partiers? could we fix it so that they have some sort of apocolyptic confrontation that kills most of them off?

Of course the 'problem' isn't the hippies? But what are ravers? Evolved hippies with el wire and glowsticks.

And, as far as the Paiute go, they teamed with the Bannock and Shoshone in 1860 and kicked ass. Look up '1st Battle of Pyramid Lake". 76 U.S. dead, ~10 Paiute. The Pyramid Lake Band of the northern Paiute already own most of their ancestral homelands, and are doing quite well with it. They even operate a fish hatchery that has brought the Lahontan cutthroat trout back from the verge of localized depletion to a high-class fishery that at last report was producing 25-pounders! Trophy fish.

The areas of native peoples was in flux and flexy. The Northern Paiutes covered the Black Rock Desert and more. The Pyramid Lake Paiutes have their place, amen. But there are always many more native peoples that were never named and never had a home.

What would happen of native peoples hunted festies? That would solve appropriation real quick!

Cool info on dog soldiers! Thx!
