I'm pretty certain BM won't, either.

Hmm. Which is more tolerant of shirtcockers...? :?

Disneyland, great for children and mildly drunk adults.

BM is a very different animal (thank dawg, god, the sun, the moon and the stars!)

I know :idea: Disneyland probably has an epic junk yard!
Los Angeles burners, bring us their cast offs!
We can alter and recycle the stuff before it hits the landfills~

(can you tell I had a crappy time the last time I went to Disneyland? It was the late 80's and they kept bothering our group!)

rangerLEO had huge lists of why burning man is better than X, and why X is better than burning man, but they were all removed by mods.

too bad, they were funny as hell... i guess a little too funny for the borg, eh?

I am extreamely skeptical about that. The mods typically don't remove things unless they are truly vile/offensive and/or email addresses that could be harvested. Or unless they are asked to by the original poster.
I wouldnt' put it past our search engine not to find it.

If the pics of my rat's testicles are still up, i doubt that the mods pulled anything about "better than x" lists or whatever it is he is trying to prove with that statement.

Perhaps he's trying to prove he's a sock puppet and troll. He might manage to convince some of us.

Not this mod, and not mentioned as removed by the other mods. The "borg" itself rarely makes an appearance, much less fool around with posts. I don't think it was him, his profile doesn't bring any such posts up. I'm sure it was someone else and I'll think of it later.

Well, he did have this, on the first page of the thread. It's mildly amusing, but nothing earth shattering. My advice is not to search on the term "better than," too many hits.

Not many posts from rangerLEO and the list seems a bit bitter.

If you go in the summer, Disney World will be hot and humid
Burning Man will be hot and dry



Been to Disney world two times, in August 1986 and July 1995 terribly humid

I got kicked out of the old Riverside Casino in Reno. Of course, vomiting on the poker table will have that effect I'm afraid.
