Sooooo by that definition i AM a burner even if i haven't been to TTiTD or an 'official' regional. Not that i need someone to tell me (i do, i do, i do) that i'm a burner or that i;m not burny enough it's just a bit of fuel for the fire the next time i open my mouth and start spouting rubbish (or more accurately typing it
oh loving the lexicon btw is there a way to go from one definition to the next with out going forward and back?
I am glad you are enjoying the Lexicon. I appreciate hearing from my fans. The only way to get around are the Related Links at the bottom or the main Lexicon page. You can also browse the A Burner Lexicon category on my blog, I guess:

As to your other question, in my opinion it would depend on the event. On the one hand, if a bunch of guys got together, lit a bonfire, and cleaned up after themselves, it would be disingenuous to call it a 'Burn event' after the fact if one heard about Burning Man later. At the other end of the spectrum, if a European goes to Nowhere in Spain but hasn't been to That Thing In the Desert, they are definitely a Burn. There's obviously a lot of gray area in between.
