I cannot speak for everyone, but many of us have had trouble with posting our own photos. Perhaps it seems like we are ganging up on you. I've reached the point where I have a fondness for you. You've made more that 200 posts, and I'm so in my dream world that you haven't stood out until now. I don't think that there's been a whole lot of malice towards you in this thread.
(BTW--a lot of the girls on this board, kick ass.)

Cool pic Janicels , I second the no malice meant. It took me forever to figure out how to post pics and why it didn't work the other million times I tried :roll:
I think your idea is neat and I'm sure lots people have wonderful burner meetings and or sighting to share.

Nobody here is falling for that 'just a girl' bit.

Last time I fell for that, she ended up working for nasa.
She did act really ditzy, but...apparently not.

I have no problem posting photos, but getting the damn things into the computer AND finding them again gives me fits.

There was a thread somewhere about similar logos to burning man, and people found quite a few that were really close.

The one you found looks like a burner trademark, but I wouldn't be surprized if it was adapted.
Was it hand painted?

Anybody got the nerve to try search?

I think this is all about stick figures that have a vague appearance to "our man"---but I'm probably wrong! :roll:

By the way, does our man have a name, other than Burning?

I always thought his name was "The".

I like to pronounce it with a soft "th".... like Theo.

Last night I met my first person with even a vague clue as to what I was talking about.

So this makes me think I should install The someplace visible here, to encourage burners to drop by.

I have no dog to deter them from entering the compound.

It's been said, most forums discourage posting while high... it's one of the requirements on ePlaya.



Ah, jeez. The "don't be mean" got me.

The issues with posting could be any number of perfectly legitimate things. Things I don't know...

What?
The house?

You think of yourself as "just a girl" ?

I wouldn't want to encourage that.

You lost me on the house.

Actually, no one on eplaya has seen me try to be mean, or get mad... so far.

The "one one" is the highway which runs around the south end of Big Island from Kona to Hilo (or Hilo to Kona). Very scenic indeed, except for the long boring stretch through the lava fields and macadamia orchards, and even those are better than a sharp stick in the eye.

I was just commenting on "just a girl" and how I lost my house in the not so friendly divorce. I just didn't think she'd do it...

Sorry, I thought you said you were female at some point.
Hard to tell on here.

I still wouldn't have gotten the reference, but that makes sense now.
Sorry about the house.

Thank you.


On the Black Rock Turnpike, near the Merritt Parkway in Fairfield, Connecticut there was the Hi-Ho Hotel (or something like that) which, oddly enough given the name, was not a pay-per-hour motel next to a porno shop, strip join and/or liquor store.

It's a nice area and a swank place.

Then again, the Honeyspot Motel in Trumbull or Stratford may have been a different story.

It's a very old ebay trick and applies to search as well.

When you can't find the right links or especially any, try misspelling.

When a young lady was asked to use the word HANDSOME in a sentence, she verbally expressed the following sentence.

"If I'm suckin' off Bobby for a long time and my jaw gets tired, I gotta use my handsome."

Hahahah! no, but that's still pretty good.

By the way, the Black Rock, for which the 1700s-era roadway was named, is a nice neighborhood in Bridgeport, CT, formerly a part of Fairfield. I used to live there.

And, the financial institution that handles the PayPal moneymarket fund, where I have some BRC funds squirreled away, is also called Black Rock. Neither are related to Nevada.

Black Rock is everywhere.
