"Baseline VIP" seats at Dodger Stadium: $285, for a 2 1/2 to 3 baseball game? :?
Burning Man? Priceless!

It the best three hundred dollars I ever spent. I come every year and when I look back over the past year and reflect on what I spent my money on, I can't think of anything that gave me greater pleaser than the money I spend on my annual pilgrimage to playa mecca.

How's Dutch work for you?
een groot deel van wat u betaalt is de houding die op dit IMO van de berichtdraad wordt tentoongesteld. groupy-spreek, of wat is het?

Oh that made me laugh so hard I scared my co-workers.
Well WELL done.

I mean with the thousands of volunteers I am pretty sure we can clean up afterwords.... isn't that what this is all about?


I've said it before... The idiots increase in number every year. At what point can we start hunting them to keep the population under control?

Half a million a year with 50,000 burners= ten dollars each.

Why do you give a fuck where the money goes?? BMORG, Larry Harvey, & Joe Blow don't owe you shit! If you don't like the ticket price,, DON'T fucking go !!

I'm sick of people bitching about the ticket prices, who makes what, etc.. Burning Man is not a charity.. get a clue. seriously. DON'T GO WHINER !!

Sheesh.. I need to get out onto the Playa soon & away from dumbasses like this!!

Done venting.. ok, Anti go ahead and reprimand me now. :?


Besides, everyone knows BRC is a front organization for Dr. Dre to fund the Illuminati. Glenn Beck is one of his people as well and they make a tremendous amount of money to fund the New World Order -- not the Ministry song, the other one.

I'm a whore for my military discount (yes, I see irony and hypocrisy in that) but I still think I may prefer BRC to Disney.

Besides, I heard Walt Disney is still alive and works secretly with Mel Gibson to undermine the Iluminati and Free Masons. I don't know, it's just what I heard.

Be ready to jot things down to fact check later when people disagree with you...

Laws of physics do not apply to some members of the burning man community to their knowledge. For instance, getting sunburned when separated from the sun by a sheet of glass. :lol:


i have no idea what you just said, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.


I'm still trying for a coherent translation.
