I'm Annoyed

Postby magician » Fri Sep 05, 2003 11:36 am

I'm sorry, but for $300, I would expect a bit more first-class amenities:

Someone should figure out a way to air condition the playa when it gets hot.

the seating situation the night of the burn was way too chaotic... someone needs to come up with a reserved seating plan.

porta-potties - can't we liven them up... paint them pink or something? I thought this was supposed to be some kinda artsy environment.

gotta do something about the dust, who is going to pay my cleaning bills?

I thought burning man was supposed to be a massive rave. Many camps did not have techno music... what's up with that?

And where were all the orgies? I only found one good orgy the whole time I was there.

Strange people kept trying to give me things. In this climate of terrorism, I think this is highly dangerous. There could be a bomb or anthrax in one of those glow sticks. There should be a place where we can have strange items tested, and strange people reported.

But then one guy got real mad when I tried to take his bike... why wasn't he in a giving mood? Negative bastard. He ruined the trip for me.

Coffee and Ice are good... but we really need a Taco Bell in center camp.

Otherwise, forget it... I'm not going back next year...

Wait... nobody *showed up* or nobody came?

Is this like one hand clapping? A tree falling in the forest?

You obviously didn't suit up in your plastic bubble. I got home completely clean. I haven't needed to shower for a week. Please read the survival guide and enclose all food, friends, and equipment in double sealed ziploc bags.

I spent some time in an air conditioned dome eating chocolate and getting a massage it was lovely

Oh come on now....there were PLENTY of orgies didn't you get that list of sex camps that was circulating? There were at least 20 places you could have started some trouble....not to mention spontaneous orgie madness

The BRCPO does inspect strange packages for anthrax and bomb threats...we also do security checks on suspicious persons who are not registered with the INSS...ARE YOU A CITIZEN....CAN WE SEE YOUR GREEN CARD?

Trouble always seems to find me before I could even wander into any naughty camps.

Sigh another project for next year...
