I say we take the trash fence first. Go for it. I'll be right behind you.

Promise.

First off, it will depend on what is going on with the movement in 9 months. Too many things are in flux.
2nd, get a cardboard cut out of yourself and have a friend baby sit it in the Occupy protest.
3, I suppose some sort of electronic/internet connection solution might be set up to maintain contact.

Well if the theme ends up being "The Default World" someone can make a "Wall Street" and people can occupy it. It'd be pretty ironic seeing such a spectacle at this altar of consumption and excess we call Burning Man.

I don't know if I'm more in shock at how small that once mighty structure appears or at how hard-packed the playa is.

I"m just happy to see "seemen" there, but then I have "Siemenbergerbrueke" (sp) seared into my mind...

I'd say the trash fence is definitely oppressive. However, as it is my duty and pleasure to keep hippies out when I'm patrolling for Perimeter, I'm conflicted. I want to stick it to the man while I oppress hippies. Hmmm. I'll have to chew some bacon and reflect.

Look at a map. Note the position of Manhattan in relation to any part of the state of Nevada. Physical locations, mutually exclusive. If you're going to, you know, Occupy Wall Street during that week then Burning Man is pretty much out of the question. Decide which thing you care about more, spend your week there.

I figure if you've got the quantum physics chutzpah or the powerful psychadelics needed to pull it off, you don't need our help.

Well they better stay out of traffic. If any hippie-tard OWSers decide to block up traffic along the gate road I'll do my part to volunteer to infiltrate them and help get their hippie asses arrested and out of there.

yeah, it'd be a shower alright..........750gpm@250 PSI from a monitor, might be more like a "super bidet" once they hit the mud and start sliding along........"hippy air-hockey"? well, mud hockey.
