Alternative Universe Burning Man

Postby linds_e » Mon Feb 27, 2012 11:46 pm

The playa has been featuring in my dreams again lately, and so I made a comic about it:
Alternative Universe Burning Man #2, the "it could be worse edition"

Remember friends, and take comfort: at least 2012 will probably not involve being on the playa with The Situation and two evil twin meth cartel members who want to behead you.

What's your Alternative Universe Dreamland Burning Man like?

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand.

What could possibly be more appropriate at the burn than a pink cardigan?

"In a world that sees two meter sea level rise, with continued flooding ahead, it will take extraordinary effort for the United States, or indeed any country, to look beyond its own salvation. All of the ways in which human beings have dealt with natural disasters in the past … could come together in one conflagration: rage at government’s inability to deal with the abrupt and unpredictable crises; religious fervor, perhaps even a dramatic rise in millennial end-of-days cults; hostility and violence toward migrants and minority groups, at a time of demographic change and increased global migration; and intra- and interstate conflict over resources, particularly food and fresh water. Altruism and generosity would likely be blunted."

James Woolsey, 2007

Keep that in the ticket threads, we don't need it all over the board.

I thought the name at the top-right of that picture said "BYU Linds-E" and was horrified at first. Then I saw that it said "By Linds-E" and that the "U" was a BRC.

I like the Bizarro world Burning Man better. Last year, of course.
