Burning Man, in case you haven't heard of it, is an interactive arts festival ... sort of. Fifty thousand people get together annually in the middle of nowhere to build a temporary city and go NUTS, risking sunstroke, bankruptcy and emotional breakdown for the sake of an experience unlike any other.

Depending on who you are, it can be giant frat party or a moment of life-changing spirituality. It's psychically (and to some extent physically) dangerous.
Clothing seems to be entirely optional...
But if you do wear some you should strive for mad-as-a-weasel:
|The Man looks different every year too|
and every year they burn him at the end of the event:
Then everyone packs up and goes home and nothing is left behind but the empty playa.
"Azazel would love this, I realized."
