    Damn hippies

    • Dwreck

      I was gunna say that till I seen the man merica jump suit and we all know hippies are un patriotic

    • Not Oprah

      That was the very first thing that I said out loud upon viewing this gallery.

      • chesterdrawers

        Everyone above this is a gayhomofag… simple…

    • AssHaterson

      I can smell the patchouli from 1,000 miles away.

      • whoa

        P.U. I bet this place smells worse than a wet dog sleeping in a barn next door to a dump.

        • Cut

          Actually the dust is an alkaline, which acts as an anti-bacterial… so very little body odor. Its true.

  • anon

    i wonder how many kids are going to come from dis burning man….

    • Burner2009

      Not too many. While there are tons of hot chicks and naked people everywhere, the extreme heat, grit and sand makes for bad sexy time. It's tough to shower out there. But a fantastic experience.

    • Chivalrous

      Wonder how many of those kids will suffer from birth defects…

  • B.lo

    Shambhala is better

    • Kancer

      Yes yesssssssssssss yesssssssssssssss

    • anon

      Nothing in Canada is better.

      • Canada

        RIP USA. Another ten years, the people of America will be eating one another while us Canadians feast on everything that is wonderful.

    • Tom

      Carrot Fest in Bradford, Ontario blows this shit away. Im serious!!

    • You B.lo

      Hmmm. No! Some things are better in Canada. The economy, health care, and quality of life index just to name a few

    • magnum smiles

      you have obviously never been to burning man 🙂

  • tv_paul

    #19 Welcome to Thunderdome! Two men enter,one man leaves.

    • johnny

      where's Master Blaster?…lol

      • 15Weight

        he's busy running Bartertown.

    • Shak

      Where's Tupac?!?!

      • Oltimey


        • Shak

          "California Love"

    • kazyctn

      My brother was there hanging on the cage. The interesting thing is that it wasn't total BS – huge guys were there to kick the shit out of each other, no helmets or nerf weapons…

      • bud

        im gonna win that and take over Bartertown, then get into a final showdown with Tina Turner.

  • emini

    bunch of degenerates

    • chesterdrawers

      How stupid can you troglodites get?…

      • Daniel Tosh

        It's a wannabe freak show. Most people who go there are a bunch of possers thinking its a Halloween party.

  • Gary

    Where do they get their electrical power?
    Where do they get their food?
    Who pays for the clean up?

    Can you imagine the smell after all those people are in the desert for a week?

    • kim

      generators buried in the ground.
      food is brought in by everyone, no money changes hand. everything is traded.
      the organizers are very meticulous about the clean up. no trace is left after they are done. and the participants are actually very courteous as well. water with soap or any other chemical is not allowed to touch the desert floor – you must let it evaporate on some sort of surface throughout the day.

      • BO12

        I call BS, no trace left behind, find any dumpster in on the way home and throw all your shit in it. Just ask my dumpster behind my work. I'm in Reno, and all I see is these goons dumping their shit here as they can't leave it there.

        • Dayna

          Some one can't read the internet good. Sad panda face. and then i burn it

        • mackin

          Oh, you're right there. While Burning Man is the world's largest "Leave no trace" event, it's really a 'leave a trace somewhere else".

          • Real people

            And you don't shit at home do you Stupid Sh t Were is your garbage?

    • Dave x

      U don't know much about BM do you? Go research what's required to attend and all your pretty little questions will be answered

    • Plato

      Generators are brought in and a limited electrical grid is distributed amongst larger camps and BMO structures. All food/water is brought in by participants.. And all garbage/waste is brought out. Known as a "leave no trace" policy. I went last year.. You'd be astonished how effective it is. A standard music festival this is not. Virtually no garbage/trash. When people work together towards a common goal and everybody embraces it, the end result is something spectacular.

      • Iceman2509

        I hope there aren't any eco-friendly themes during this week. Did you see how much crap was buring? I wonder what the carbon footprint is?
        Not that i believe in that, I'm just saying.

        • Dayna

          Yeah cuz mother nature never burns anything. go read some stuff before you spew garbage from your mouth

  • Static

    ……..self expression? art?…. nope… drug fest.
    bet that place smells HORRIBLE by the end of the week.

    • brucelee

      aren't drugs a form of self expression? and don't drugs help people produce some of the most amazing art?

      Oh, wait…how's that tylenol you popped this morning? the red bull you drink on the way to work? the coffee you drink? the sugar you eat?

      step out of that large box you live in fool

    • phoneboy

      Well. since it's in a desert, it smells just fine. You're speaking like someone that knows nothing about the event. 🙂

  • I Eats Bacon

    No hot chicks? Not interested.

    • chesterdrawers

      Yea, 'cause you get ALL the dope babes huh?…

    • Verbal_Kint

      Actually, there are multitudes of very hot women there, albeit a bit dusty and dirty, and many of them are naked or topless. Just FYI…

    • Cut

      Funny, you have a TooL symbol for your avatar… Alex Grey was a featured artist out there in 2006 and tool played there in a little camp the same year. But, then again, youre an idiot so… Oh, and there are about 20,000 hot chicks, topless and in booty shorts.

      • Mackin

        Alex Grey was there this year, too. Met with him briefly- very sincere and passionate man. He had an art show and did several talks, lectures and workshops. And yes, if your goal in life is to ogle hot women in scanty outfits, there are many of those in the sort of outfits that, well, make Chive galleries.

      • I Eats Bacon

        Ah, so you went to Burning Man in 2006? That must be where you left your sense of humor. It was a JOKE, genius. Call it a commentary on the prevalence of scantily-clad women that grace the postings of the Chive. Or is that too complicated for you to comprehend?

    • Bubba

      like the soothing green light from a monitor

  • JLBugbee

    I want to go to this so bad. It would be so much fun!!

  • Apol

    New age Mad Max????

    • Derwood

      Was just thinking something like Thunderdome and a mix of Walter White chemistry.

  • https://www.facebook.com/lindy.silver Lindy Silver

    you dress up and be dirty all week. fun? your balls are sweaty, covered in sand…and the only chicks are old, lesbians, or have more hair than you do.

    but the do burn shit so hmmmm

    • Mackin

      Lindy, do you always make assumptions about stuff you don't know anything about? I've been 7 times, and have met and spent time with women of a variety of ages, sexualities and hairiness.

    • phoneboy

      Actually, the majority of the girls there would be chive worthy. seriously. There are literally thousands of gorgeous girls..

  • Plato

    Amazing. Get familiar You nay-sayers.. Get out of ur bubble and live a little!

    • Dr. Sidaredes

      Whatever dork

    • https://www.facebook.com/ericdenman 'Eric Denman'

      Cheers Plato!

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    hipster heaven

  • vinn

    #16 at first i thought they were environmentalist then all of a sudden #35 it turned out to be like a michael bay movie which emits a LOT of carbon emissions……..hypocrisy at its best

    • Guy

      That says EGO, not ECO. I assume the artist was making some statement about our humanity not the enviroment. I used to work with a lady that went every year. From her stories, I got the idea they were counter culture types not really any particular political motives.

  • http://www.facebook.com/haschen Alex Haschen

    Im good, thanks but no thanks

  • nodon

    I'm jealous – one of these years, I'll blow off the family & job & whatnot and head out there for the week.

    You can easily make a shower, or use someone else's (sharing is part of the burning man spirit), or there's at least one "parade" of naked people following a water-spraying truck.

  • chicago

    i'm thinking the same. at least be there once. rent a camper [handy shower and toilet] make a week of it.

  • bouh

    #25 these les'es are doing it wrong

  • bdg

    Get a job,a shower and come back to reality!!!!!!! Damn hippies are ruining the world!!!!

    • https://www.facebook.com/ericdenman 'Eric Denman'

      just because you can't get off your bosses nut for a week to have some fun doesn't mean everyone else there is jobless or hippies. Stay stale bdg!

      • bdg

        Stay stale-That's clever did you think of that while you were playing pokemon,or while you bussing the dishes from table 14?? Fucking hippies!

        • Mackin

          At least they're fucking!

    • Jarrod

      It is that those like you aren't attending is why we go. I find that most attendees are business owners and quite successful. You Knob

  • Rcougs

    You can always pick out the people that go to burning man. They are serving coffee to people that have real jobs. Patchouli and sweat…… Hippy aphrodisiac

    • Ned Flanders

      Jobs are for suckers… I don't really dig on burning man, but I imagine a lot of people are jealous of these folks for getting away from it all every once in a while.

    • https://www.facebook.com/ericdenman 'Eric Denman'

      because using your vacation days from your "real" job to go to sandals makes you so much better of a person

      • Mackin

        Actually, I'm a published author, won awards for nonprofit advertising copy, and currently run the marketing department for a website company. I make my own coffee. One of the camps I spent a lot of time at sported two successful Realtors, one accountant, and the owners of a movie theatre. It's almost as if hastily spouted bigotry on comment sections is wrong or something.

  • OhioChiver

    #38 And then….reality sets in. Job. Kids. Bills. Oh the humanity. Let's go home honey.

    • https://www.facebook.com/ericdenman 'Eric Denman'

      or we go back to running our companies that our employees like you have been tending while we have been gone. get back to work.. we don't pay you to play around on the internet!

    • Dayna

      default world sucks, my cup is never full

  • Livin' Legend

    This is one of the things on my bucket list that I'd like to see just once and then never admit to it.

  • Bryan410

    Is this what lies beyond Thunder Dome?

    • Mackin

      No, Thunderdome is actually there on the Esplanade. Seriously. I watched several fights on Tuesday. Although in this one, two men (or women) enter, both leave, just one got an ass whooping.
