"It's impossible to describe," said Jim Jacoby, an investment banker from Newcastle, Calif., who goes by the moniker "Dr. Pyro" during Burning Man, which he has attended for the last 12 years.

"It's the one place you can do or find anything you want. It's freedom in the desert for a week," said Jacoby, 56.



Fucking rock star.

I love this quote
"...Bob Fulkerson, a Reno conservationist who regularly hikes in the Black Rock Desert but who has never been and "will never go" to Burning Man. Heavy vehicle traffic associated with the event is crushing the playa's surface every summer, possibly causing cumulative damage that will only worsen as the event grows in scale, Fulkerson said. "I honestly think they're doing a lot more damage out there than people realize," Fulkerson said. "Frankly, I find it offensive."


Who the hell is Bob Fulkerson anyway????

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

What? He's not a real doctor? I've been given a hernia exam for the past 5 years from an investment banker!


edited to add the exclamation point at the end!

How many people call it "Fuckerson"?

At least I know why the Reno Gazette Journal was asking for eco-quotes recently. I'll sleep easier tonight.
