this is about to be poppin'. you guys have no idea how gnarly this burning man thing is. last year the flames were at least fifty feet in the air. intense. and this year there is a rail jam too. everyone needs to come check this out.
yeah they build this giant wooden man, probably about 20 or 30 feet tall, and then set him ablaze... sort of a sacrifice to the snow gods or something. really it's a great excuse to get together and party and get stoked about the impending winter. this year it's on halloween, which means it'll be even more gnarly. i, personally, cannot wait.
