Burning Man


Knick, responding to a New York Times article on San Francisco’s Burning Man exodus:

While the adult-children of the Bay Area head out on a compass bearing of 48.8 degrees Northeast to Gerlach and environs for a few days of post-apocalyptic mud, dust and dissolution, the Bay Area’s adult-adults choose ANY other cardinal direction and revisit the universe of woods, rocks, beaches, water and magic night skies that are the real world.

To be fair, the desert can be beautiful too.

For those unaware, Burning Man is this thing where people do stuff. Along with the Comics O’logy thing, it also makes many podcasts insufferable.
