I always get a kick out of all the suckers that have bought into the whole Burning Man idea, that they'll buy everything about it hook, line, and sinker. Especially those who think that Burning Man is a new & original idea. Sorry to burst your bubble, but it isn't.

You see Burning Man is a commercialized version of the infamous Rainbow Gatherings that have been happening for over 20 years. There are few differences that set the two apart. Both smell terrible after day two. Both have strange and exotic drugs for ingestion. Both have forms of music that will prevent you from getting a full eight hours of shut-eye. And both usually end with something getting burned at the end with a bunch of wigged-out naked people dancing around like apes who have just smoked a barrel of Ice. So take a gander at where the origins of Burning Man are, and ponder.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
