2012: The Last Burn

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

Well, if they were sterilized and couldn't reproduce, their genes are effectively removed from the pool, no? --hell if they need my assistance, they sure as hell won't be able to afford cloning. :D

And I certainly wouldn't want to kill them...hell, someone might start calling me Hitler or something. :wink:

Burnley sees 'rasher' of thefts of bacon
7:40am Saturday 20th September 2008

THE soaring price of bacon has led to an increase in thefts and a rise in 'black market' trading across East Lancashire.
And one shop in Burnley has already removed its bacon supply from the self-service fridge with customers having to ask at the till if they want to buy a pack.
Other shopkeepers said they have experienced similar problems with shoplifters targeting the meat on their shelves.

Butchers said that the price of bacon was increasing with financial experts blaming rising demand from China for pushing up prices.
And police said thieves target the meat, often to order, because it is 'easy to sell' due to high demand.

In the Londis store, at Kitchens
Garage, Trafalgar Street, Burnley, a sign has been put up on its fridge saying: "Due to the fact that our bacon is so delicious the shoplifters can't resist it.
"If you would like to try some please ask at the tills."

The store manager, who asked not to be named, said she took the decision to put the sign up in a bid to foil thieves.
She added: "I put the sign up after shoplifters emptied the shelf for two days running and I was sick of them taking it.

"It's a regular thing - we catch a few and they stop but then it starts again.
"They steal it because they can sell it. Someone stole a load of cheese from the shelf yesterday."

Figures from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) show that the price of bacon has almost doubled in the past year and food price inflation has jumped to 10 per cent in August.

Demand from China, which eats more pork products than anywhere else in the world, has also driven up the price, especially since a UK ban on exporting the meat was lifted last month.

Local award-winning butcher Stephen Berkins, who has a shop on Rosegrove Lane, Burnley, confirmed that the average price for a pack of bacon is between £2.50 and £3.50 depending on the quality.
He said: "The price of bacon has gone up recently. The average cost for a pound of bacon is around £3 or £3.50 for the dry-cured."
Police confirmed that there has been a recent increase in bacon thefts and said it is an 'ongoing' issue.

Sgt Phil Carter, of Burnley
Police, said: "Heroin addicts steal it, along with items like coffee, because it is an easy commodity to sell and easy to conceal in a jacket.

"They often steal it to order and then sell it for half the price of what it is sold for in the shops.

"If a wrap of heroin costs around £10, they only need to sell a few packs of bacon to pay for it and they can steal that in one fell swoop.

"They target stores like Londis because they have 24-hour opening times and are self service."

A shop assistant at the One Stop store, in King Street, Bacup said they have had to 'limit' the number of packs of bacon on display after thieves repeatedly stole the product from the fridge.

Okay, again... You don't get the Hitler reference because it seems to me you are fairly dense and please, PLEASE do some research before you start talking genetics and perhaps then you will *get* the reference. Talking about things you do not know about only highlights your ignorance.

Besides some of the greatest philanthropists, creators, artists and inventors all had very poor beginnings and many rich men have been knocked from their pedestals into poverty.

Then why don't you just spell it out for me. Actually, don't bother I really don't give a shit.

And again, I wasn't suggesting killing anybody, just sterilizing them until they got off the dole--assuming they did, they could have the procedure reversed and go on reproducing till their uterus falls out.

And there is no benefit speculating on the potential of the unborn. Can't miss the contributions of something that never was. And rich men (or women) that have been knocked from pedestals tend to elevate themselves back up again, and those artist types, well that's just their chosen lot in life. Though these days most artist with even marginal talent and great marketing skills tend to do quite well for themselves.

Now I'm tired of this conversation, let's change the topic to...hmmm...let's say....the inhumane treatment of farm animals or euthanasia for our grandparents or something along those lines.

You need to toughen your skin...maybe you should spend a few years listening to Rush Limbaugh.

Darwin? I don't remember his having any hard times? And marrying a Wedgewood isn't pulling yourself up by your bootstraps.

Lincoln? Rich?

Socrates? We know nothing about him!

I'd say it's a pretty pathetic list, based more on your ideology than any actual facts.

And a list like that is far too anecdotal anyway.

I know lots of artists who would beg to differ with that statement is well. Wishing the world worked a certain way does not make it so.

All of those people had to overcome adversity and failure to reach their status of notoriety.

My point is that usually people that 'have what it takes' once, usually know how to do it again, should it be necessary. I've heard it put that if all of the money in the world were divided equally amoung all of the people in the world, it would take very little time for the money to again be redistributed back to the same people that had all the money to begin with. That always seemed to make sense to me just based on observation. Look at what happens to many people when they win the lottery--the go out and spend all their money on things that they really can't afford, then in a few years they are broke again.

omar sharif. Lost his Fortune at least 6 times

"I'll just make another movie"

A Gambler's Gambler.


Lucien Freud. The Best living painter in the world.


lost 7 million pounds in ONE DAY at the racetrack

"ach, i'll just make more paintings"


it is not important how a man behaves when he has a million dollars, but how he conducts himself AFTER it's gone...

does he wallow in his losses, never to rise?

Or does he pick himself up, dust himself off, and go do it again?

I still say it's selection bias, probably getting into cherry picking.

Don't pick someone famous. AFter all, I could start a list with Yuri Gargarin, Sally Ride, Buzz Aldrin, Neal Armstrong... and then say it proved that space travel was common for Caucasians in the 20th century.

No, give me some broader studies. Using tax rolls, census data, and wills. Find a group of people, a LARGE group of people, who had money before a crash, lost it in the crash, and then see what happens afterwards. Then run some solid stats. Sure there are those who would do well in most circumstances. But accuisition of wealth is a lot more complicated than that.

As for Sharif and Frued, I don't think they exemplify anything. Except that gamblers don't learn. It was just luck that they ended as they did. You could find thousands, even millions of gamblers who never got it back.

whether we like it or not, we gamble everyday with our own lives.


Some of us use money, that's all.


my point is, it is not the money that makes the man, (or woman) but the other way around.
