Fair Warning: Cynics, Critics and Other Motherfuckers!!!

Postby ZaphodBurner » Fri Jun 17, 2005 3:55 pm

The Zaphod Project has officially armed itself and hereby gives notice. Anybody uttering the words "Last year was better" in the camp perimeter will be summarily bound to a post and shot by our Crack H2O Firing Squad.

In fact, anybody caught passing in range of Castle Zaphod's rampart defenses and uttering same will be blasted by the Somewhat
Longish-Range Water Cannon Array while enduring Severe Obscure Cursing. If you persist we will taunt you a second time.

Sic Semper Cynics!

Sounds like a good camp to wander past in the heat of the afternoon. Bondage AND a refreshing blast of water. Wow. If you see someone hopping up and down in the middle of your camp shouting happily about how last year was so much more fabulous, that'll be me.

2002 was better. Virgin experiences are usually quite memorable and hard to beat.

actually after reading the JRS this morning, AG brings a good point about anticipating this years burn. i'd have to admit we are more prepared and ready for this burn than any since our first burn almost a decade ago.

everyone's working on something, we're seeing people we only get to see once a year (if that), and we focused on something to bring to the playa, add to the community and atmosphere. more participation from everyone this year can't be anything but a good thing.

Oh, man, can I be a part time gunner? Please, please?

Ron, who's been dreaming of a water catapult for next year. Just imagine, someone's wandering around, minding their own business, and suddently 5 to 10 gallons of water come splashing down on and around them. :)

Not quite 5 gallons, but I've seen it. My freshman year in college there was an upperclassman, a reserve lieutenant named Ritchie Cunningham (!) who had three-person water slingshot that he launched big-ass water baloons with from the roof of the building. One day, before I knew anything about it, he whapped the OSU basketball team who was trolling for girls outside a freshman dorm. They came up looking for a brawl...wrong floor, I was the only one there. When I heard about it, I looked around and as soon as I found Cunningham, I volunteered to help man the slingshot.

Hmm, I think a baloon could hurt someone. Water is pretty heavy. But something that just shot a bucketload of loose water in an arc to some distance away from the scene of the crime on some unsuspecting ... might be a little interesting. Would be too evil to do at night, though.

I'm a cynic, critic, and metaphorical motherfucker (fuck you sigmon freud), but I won't be saying "last year was better" cause every year kicks ass in it's own way. Can I still get tied up and pelted with water? Please?

Why, yes! Metaphorical motherfuckers are our favorite!
