Not so much funny as astounding that I actually saw something so dumb happen in real time. I was a Dawes checking out a few songs before heading over to Sahara for Madeon when I looked over at the giant toothpick spiney art thing (don't know what it was called, sorry, but it's in the above pic with the vendor who got demolished) and there was some dude climbing up it like spiderman. At first I wasn't sure if he was supposed to be doing that, like part of the installation or something, but I though gosh that's probabaly not safe. So I keep watching as this dude goes about half way up the spines and leans out for a photo. At this point I obviously know it's a jackass who has obviously made a stupid descion and I watch as what I knew was going to happen actually happened.... he went to climb back down and only got about 2 spines down when one came undone and he fell to the ground. It was a pretty good distance. As I walked over a crowd had formed and security was calling for medical help and wouldn't let anyone near so I could see how badly the guy got hurt and haven't heard anything else about it. Anyone have any more details/see that?

Every person that came to our campsite asking for tacos.
It looks like he stood back up after he fell, but security forced him to sit back down until someone else comes.... Probably to check his condition and/or reprimand him.
I saw some guy pissing in the middle of the Outdoor, not 100 ft from the bathrooms, with his friends surrounding him giggling with glee. I thought it was fucking disgusting and lazy, but apparently judging by his gf howling, it was hilarious.
Friday morning we were all sleeping in our tents and then you suddenly hear a guy in our lot yell "Rain my ass, it's gonna be a BEAUTIFUL day!!" and we all started laughing. That was the day it was super gloomy and rainy. In his defense, it was sunny that morning.
Also, my friend said she saw two people standing in front of each other and then a third person reading off vows for them to repeat to each other. And then she saw a group of high school-looking girls sitting down and then suddenly they pulled out syringes with a clear liquid in them and then run off.
"uh yeah, snoop dog is like super old, he's like 85 or something."

Getting in at 11am on Friday, after getting searched by security, a guy takes out a walkie talkie and asks his friend "DID YOU SNEAK IN THE HEROIN?"
It's obvious they were joking but it was a really cool moment
pillows and parties
Walking through 106th st isles, overheard "I want it to say, i want dick in my mouth now"
the amount of bros that turned out for 'Wolf Gang' thinking it was Odd Future, realized it wasn't and left.
A guy at Dada Life decided to take off all of his clothes and dance naked for the last few songs. Him standing around embarrassed and trying to put his clothes back on was the best part. And yes, attending Dada Life's set was a mistake. But I was bored and wanted a good spot for Nero. Don't judge me.
Thursday night in the campground my group of friends were slowly starting to fall asleep one by one when a stranger just wanders into our campsite. The guy was gone, couldn't tell if he was just shit faced drunk or on something harder. Well Anton (took us a little while to learn his name) was a nice guy generally, really interested in my buddy Liam for some reason, wouldn't stop interviewing him. We didn't get much information out of him besides his name, he forgot most questions that was asked of him in seconds and basically had his own language of slurring and expressions of surprise. My friend filmed him so I'll ask if she can send me the video. My buddy Cameron and I realize that this guy is here to stay so we rile him up and lead him to the silent disco and then ditch him there hoping that he finds some other lucky soul to latch on to. We get back to the site and reminisce about our Anton for a little while and generally forget about him. Thirty minutes later we hear a rustling near one of the tents are surprised to see good old Anton back, except he doesn't seem to notice us. For some reason he tries to stalk the perimeter of our campsite, he basically clung to the tarps that our neighbors put in between the sites and very slowly and carefully traversed the border between our tents, canopies, and tarps and our neighbors. It was like watching a full grown man play the floor is lava game and fail miserably. He didn't say a word to us during this and left shortly. The next day we see him on the way to the restrooms and welcome him back, he had no idea who any of us are.
My god I'm getting pumped up .. probably a good idea to clear plenty of space on my iphone for all of this
God that sucks. Don't take the brown acid, amirite!?!
My neighbor screaming into his phone at his room mate for throwing a party at this house in La Jolla and how he's getting kicked out.
My neighbor getting shit faced drunk, walking up to a couple fighting, taking the water bottle out of their hand and dumping it on his head and then walking away.
Everything that has ever come out of my campmate's mouth, including her getting drunk and mauling Sun Chips.
In relation to Dre and Snoop, "Wow. They still got it." DUH, MOTHER FUCKERS.

If the girls think the dudes are disgusting then they need to watch their friends a little closer. There are some nasty broads out there! I could probably count at least 10+ times I saw a chick kneel down in broad daylight in the beer garden, pop a squat staring at everyone with no shame, and piss right on grass and themselves. At night it was even worse. The girls worked in teams too, one held the beer and the girls hand so the least amount of dribble would be left on themselves.
DO NOT SIT ON THE FLOOR/GRASS NEAR ANY FENCE LINE FOR ANY REASON. IT WAS WET FOR A REASON. YIKES! I TOLD SO MANY PEOPLE TO WATCH OUT WHERE THEY WERE ABOUT TO SIT AND THEN 2 SECONDS LATER THE NEXT POOR BASTARD WAS SITTING IN IT...
