For the unacquainted: Burning Man is an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert, NV. I could write more about it, but I would rather just send interested parties over to the Wikipedia page for further details.

For the record, no, I have never been there.  Burning Man, to me, is a lot like the San Diego Comic Con: huge, crowded, hot, smelly, noisy, filled with strange people in bizarre fashions (the ones who feel like wearing clothes, that is…), nowhere to potty, loaded with psychos and dweebs, and yet still something that should probably be seen at least once in a person’s lifetime.
