some seeing eye wrote:Burningman has a surprising list of rules. Especially about vehicles that are not powered by pedals. Strictly within your village, maybe the rules would not be enforced. But given the vast possibilities for engagement and diversion for children at the event, is this an essential one? Would your children understand the limits and rules? Potential crushing disappointments abound. Do not bring.
Party pooper. (engage good-natured tongue in cheek dialogue here. Dont take this seriously, please)
Life has a surprising set of rules. Like "nazi-minded people who want to enforce order upon the newbie masses should leave the little kids out of their aspirations"
Seriously. Lighten up. Half of the burn is drunk, stoned, altered, unlawfully happy or is sleeping with someone elses husband/wife/siggy other/poodle. And you want to rain on some kid for having a little fun?? For real?
Tell you what. Wait until the little nipper is having a safe, fun burn and then call a ranger. Tell them that little five year old is "violating the terms and conditions found in the Burning Man survival guide and is therefore a serious danger to law, order, decorum, and the spirit of concentration camps throughout history". Demand a written report and escalate to the Pershing lads.
While you are doing this, I will be be playing peek-a-boo with this hardened criminal and waiting for her arrest. And tweaking her batteries, because you just never know when some munchkin may need to bust a move and rabbit from da cops.
(sarc aside. Some Seeing Eye may have a point. But if it was me, I would bring it!)
