I think it's their job to say that.

I've observed that some of the craziest motherfuckers I've known have been accountants.

There is some kind of pattern there.

From one perspective, yes, instead of using those resources for something else, you used them to create an object which you then destroyed.

I'm not saying that what you did was either wrong or right, that is not my intent nor my place.

In my attempt to view Burning Man from the perspective of someone living in poverty or without the amenities I have in this country, I might view the entire event as wasteful, excessive and unnecessary.

I do not attend to make the world a better place, I attend because I enjoy it. If I wanted to fix the world, I would have to sacrifice the life I currently enjoy. I prefer to effect change through a different means and hope it might someday make a difference. If I can't accept the actions of other people I will simple not associate with them socially or financially.
May Shai-Hulud clear the path for you.

Bleacher seats at a baseball game now seem to go for $40 (it's the same damned bleacher that was in the $20-$25 range 5 years ago).


We just shelled out $65 each to see a fridyay night Dodgers game before picking up our RV on the saturday we drive to Reno...

And we aren't even in particularly good seats... outfield side of 1st base
