    With: vegan hotdog give away, an interactive arcade, topless trampoline; infused water in the mornings; sock monkey making; gypsy readings; a cock and ball cuddle pit where you can adopt a cock to take home. We have some music too

    It is a marker for a certain kind of naive stupidity that you confuse realism with bitterness. Realism in this sense means calling bullshit on snake oil salesmen, TV preachers, get-rich-quick schemes, lying politicians, and hippie utopians. Being able to identify this dreck as bullshit is not bitterness but quite it's opposite: I enjoy real life so much that it is a service to my fellow human beings to alert them to those that may deprive them of similar joy.

    Carry on with your healing of the world Tom by telling others what is the truth. You are the divine entity of opinion.

    As far as partying goes I'd say BM is pretty close to utopia, sure. No curfews, no open container laws, barely any LEO interactions if you're not an idiot, hundreds of soundsystems playing all kind of music under the stars, no lines, no VIP, no bottle service, no searches at the door, no bouncers, no $12 drinks, less creepy dudes (you can never escape creepy dudes, unfortunately), awesome art everywhere, ride your bike to and from everything, lots of beautiful things to look at, everyone's in a good mood, and most soundsystems sound better out there since it's just open desert. The four corner Funktion 1 system at Nexus last year was probably the best club music sound I've ever heard in my life.

    I mean, is it actually utopia? No, it's a bunch of people with money spending a ton of it to party in the desert for a week. As an actual society it's mostly unsustainable. But who gives a fuck? Have you actually been, Tom?

    You all are missing the point. I am not attacking or deriding BM. I am saying proclamations of utopia are bullshit. In all cases. Every single time. Regardless of who/what/when/where/why.

    Touché

    Utopia is quite improbable due to different opinions on what utopia is.

    No, not touché, this is a stupid semantic derail and he's not even right.

    A utopia /juːˈtoʊpiə/ is a community or society possessing highly desirable or perfect qualities. The word was coined in Greek by Sir Thomas More for his 1516 book Utopia, describing a fictional island society in the Atlantic Ocean. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempt to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature. It has spawned other concepts, most prominently dystopia.
    That's wikipedia's definition of the word utopia. The party scene at Burning Man, to me, "is a community or society possessing highly desirable or perfect qualities." So take your pedantic bullshit and go suck a lemon.

    If pointing out that you're bad at making good posts is defensive then heck, guilty as charged

    8/18: Man Man @ The Chapel
    8/23-8/24: FYF Fest
    8/30: Peaking Lights @ The Chapel
    9/3: Bear in Heaven @ The Independent

    Raining today and tomorrow a little. I take this as a great sign, the heat will burn all that moisture up just in time for it to be biketopia. Just as long as the mud doesn't create huge ditches and clumps the terrain will be perfect!
