An electric leaf blower works magic on the inside of an RV post-playa.

Having the windows open in the evening was delightful, the sounds, breeze, ahhhhh.

If you use one in camp, you can blow dust all over your campmate's stuff and be the camp asshole.

1. Kerosene burns, gasoline explodes.
2. Do NOT snort propane.
3. The DPW does not necessarily find you amusing.
4. Do not tackle bicycles.
5. Do not drink the "lemonade" in the bottle that's left in the porta-potties.
6. Any light at night is better than looking at the bottom of an art-car.
7. Fire is for looking at, it is not your mission to feel it.
8. If you're too stoned to think "I'm too stoned", then you're too stoned.
9. Walking around the Playa without a dirt-mask handy in the heat of the day is not fashionable.
10: If you are throwing up, you're doing it wrong.

When "tucking" it is best to to start from front to back.

Tucking it in makes me look like a Ken doll.

1. 110 degree beer becomes self-opening.
2. If your food supply changes from green to brown, or brown to green, don't eat it.
3. Always check for paper when you need to drop a deuce.
4. Just because someone gifts you burritos and prune juice, doesn't mean you should accept it.

Only do one stupid thing at a time. If you're perhaps holding substances deemed illegal by the LEOs, don't set off fireworks. It's like if you're drunk, don't drive over the speed limit. But we do. And we get busted. So remember kids: Only do one stupid thing at a time.

Miller Genuine Draft, Genesee, and Tecate still taste pretty good when left out in the sun. Pabst Blue Ribbon tastes like a slurry of chemicals when warm.

1. I do not like my ears nibbled on during sex
2. Don't call baby rabbits bunnies. They get offended. They are called Kittens (thank you NPR)
3. Please make sure to clean your belly button daily and wash behind your ears
4. If you rub someones feet clockwise it will give them the shits if you rub counterclock wise it will back them up for a week.

The opposing molecular structure of a giant hornets' nest and of a brick are not a good mix.

Don't Call a Bunnie a rabbit; a rabbit is food, bunnies are for cutezies! feel free to interchange the spelling; Bunnies, Bunny orde kaninchen! This makes the bunny feel international and sophisticated, thus increasing their cuetability factor considerably. Also keep your Kanichen away from static electricity sources. While agreed it does look irresistibly adorable it annoys the bunnies and makes them feel clownish.

and always keep a close Eye on a half cocked bunny! Hare today Goon tomorrow!

No No No A baby Rabbit is called a kitten. An adult is a rabbit. a Hare is a type of rabbit. My gradfather before he past he took every animal out there and wrote what an adult was called, a baby was called, a group of two and a group of 3 or more. Is it so interesting. God he was such a smart man!

I didn't think that bunnies moulted, but she seems to have outgrown her coat and shed some of it.
