New Myth?

The Man is designed after a corkscrew...Image
His Arms and Legs....Image
...resemble Cocktail Umbrellas. Image


The Man burns..then falls (or arms falling)...representing the popping of the cork and beginning of the party.

That is the most rational explanation of why the man is out of any one that I've ever heard.

But this is the best kind of corkscrew:

If she was attractive I don't at all doubt that's entirely feasible.

I saw the man burn twice (Paul Addis incident) but technically, since they brought in a replacement Man, each one only burned once.

One MOnday while we were packing up, some very worried people walked by our camp, showed us a picture of a girl and asked if we had seen her. She was bipolar, had gone off her meds for the week, and was last seen running for the trash fence after the Temple burn. I never heard what happened to her.

I have a story, which isn't mine to tell.

Stay on your meds, everyone, please. And if something does happen to you as a possible result of mixing meds and other chemicals, be honest to the rangers and medics who are trying to help you. They won't tell the cops and you'll have more effective care.
