The Tao of MOOP

No matter your skills or interests, there's a way for you to participate in the creation and manifestation of Black Rock City, both at the event and year-round.

For some reason the two things I find most often while wander. I clean up moop as I wander. Is pee bottles and glow sticks dead or alive. I really really really really really hate the pee bottles.

My Tao of Moop needs work.
I peaked in 2007.
I still play the part and moop nearly everywhere I go but sometimes I get frustrated by people who step over moop and by "art" that is moopy and spews debris down the street.
4 thousand mylar ribbons tied on to something hanging down for people to walk through will generate a shitload of moop. Just don't bring it. Or at least make an attempt to clean it up.
I'm done.

Well it ain't sacred fucking relics! :D

Question: There is a plastic bag crossing your camp in the wind at about 30 knots. How far do you run after it before you give up? (Use both sides of the form if necessary.)

Or....how far do you chase the flimsy pair of panties belonging to the adult film actress camped behind you?

See, they MIGHT be sacred relics.....

It helps me to pick up trash in a certain frame of mind. The goal is for me to pick up that trash. Somehow, I do it better my way. You can use the Dougly Path.

The best times to pick up trash are when the sun is lower to the horizon, because it creates more contrast and the MOOP stands out better (plus it is not so hot). There is a better chance that prime Schmoop goes undiscovered in the dark, and therefore at Dawn there is roughly 8 hours of accumulated, unscouted, unscavenged, MOOP (of which a small percentage is Schmoop). By focusing ones efforts at or shortly after dawn, it is cool (and keeping moving is a blessing), and the odds are best for Schmoop. Dusk is also cooler, but by then most nearby Schmoop beds have been virtually cleared, making treks further out a necessity to maintain a high Schmoop ratio. The only bad time to go Schmooping, IMO, is at or around Noon. The Sun is overhead, making for few shadows and everything disappears into a glary blob of dirt. Plus it is scorching hot, and doing so will soon make you MOOP. Have a grand Schmoopy day!

Oh yeah, Fishy - we can Schmoop together anytime!

Considering I have no idea how fast 30 knots is... I'm gonna say I'm out of shape and on vacation, so I'm not gonna run anywhere.

I order the closest Camp Virgin to chase it, and not to come back without it! (and they better have scrounged a cold beer for their Superior Officer along the way, too, or someone's going to be polishing the Kernul's Staff Car)

Is it going to a neighboring camp (and do they have booze) or is it going to Open Playa, and in the direction of the trash fence, or have I had a drink within fifteen minutes?
