I'll be curious to see what the population counts are. Will Dustpocalypse drive many out before Burn Night? Will the art and theme camps be less awesome, and thus less likely to hold a crowd? Will the burgins realize that nobody likes pooping in a dusty, filthy blue room, or will all the Coachella refugees drive out the vets?

I feel very smug. Fuck you scalpers :twisted:



Melanie,

Not all of us selling tickets are scalpers thanks.

Are you quoting your own reply Badger?? odd. As I said, not all of us selling tickets are scalpers. Every once in a while people have to make tough decisions and change plans, not going to the burn this year, for some of us, is one of them.

Skyneedle, BBadger is NOT calling you a scalper, he's saying that scalpers are ending up getting screwed by being stuck with hundreds of tickets they can't sell--and he is enjoying every minute of it. Read it again---it's not you he's referring to.

Sorta bearing out Bbadger's point about reading comprehension.

Skyneedle
For some of us this whole ticket ugliness has been going on for a year. An easing of tension that's been eating at you for so long can make people quite giddy. And the "schaude" in "Schaudefreude" doesn't really make it honorable, and we know it.
This is one of the places where reminding yourself that we're not talking about you would make you much happier.

Just dose me with oxytocin. Then I won't care about everyone else.
