    I wonder how they calculated that. I've heard before the 60,000 people per day estimate, but wouldn't you assume that many of those people would be attending multiple days?

    Yes but they would never be so specific as to count "unique attendees".

    Oh, the way I read 180,000 was with the assumption that they meant it as 180,000 different people. Not 180,000 people, 120,000 of whom are actually overlap -- that would be weird.

    I saw so many people in the medical tents. This isn't true.

    Parked a car away from me was a girl from Austrailia who got a little too drunk on Friday and had to go to the hospital. Drove off in the golf cart ambulance.
