Okay, that was really funny. :lol:

. . . I hope you stick around. Bend a little, don't break. :) It's good practice for the Playa. If you want to see the full spectrum of ePlaya behavior visit the Introduce Yourself threads, visit Open Discussion's Bar #4 thread, and the "Fuck!" thread, etc. Poke around. And you're right. Do a lot of reading. If something may have been covered already (and it almost certainly has been) google a keyword + eplaya and you'll probably find eplaya links for days.

This is just a small group of Burners on the internetz. This isn't the playa by a long shot. Not even close. If it were, we'd all save a couple thousand dollars a year.

Ahem, those were not the messages.

None of this has to do with reading blogs before asking questions, or being careful when forming questions. Those problems receive a different type of snark along the lines of "don't be lazy; do some reading."

No, this is different. This has to do with using your head to at least attempt to understand why certain rules are in place, why rules are made in the first place (not just good faith), and why people would be pissed with certain individuals who purposely flaunt them -- prior to speaking against them. The rules are not above question -- nothing is -- however, when you demonstrate a clear lack of understanding and reasoning when arguing against them that is a problem. It's like bitching about why there are drunk driving laws, and that it's not a big deal because we can trust in people to "do the right thing."

Also nobody was accusing you of not following these rules, so why do you keep playing the "oh I'll be a good girl" response? Or the "I'll be a naked rider" response? What do these have to do with anything?

I love burningman and will do everything I personally can to ensure that people (you lot) will get that I am not that horrible or naive :oops:


We shall see. Kudos to you for actually sticking around despite the responses, but your road will be rough if you don't stop to think before you speak.

This might sound off topic, but it's really not. After reading this thread I can't help but imagine someone making an internationally distributed pic/video spot out there to promote baby-wipe (or other toiletry) use at the porta-potties. I don't care if that person presenting this takes ziploc bags with them religiously. That's not what they're advertising. So in my opinion, if someone is presenting a violation of the LNT rule, they are advertising that it's ok to be a problem.

That video should be followed up with a video showing the makers and "participators" being given a swirlies (sans the flushing) in the blue-turned-brown water of the portapotties in the morning after the Man burn. Maybe it'll help fish out some of those wipes too.

That's probably about the migratory bird act, although I think there is an exemption for first nations peoples. I don't know what the parameters are. In was mishandled. Give the girl her diploma. She did the time and the coursework...

brilliant...
feathers never blow away?
tape doesn't get brittle in UV?
tape never breaks off?
tape doesn't lose adhesion (and it never gets hot there)?
tape never degrades?
so you think that will guarantee that any biologicals from the feather degrading can't affect Black Rock Playa aquatic micro-fauna, or blow out into the desert?

Well Honey, once you get onto the playa, you can see what happens to tape under UV and heat.
