Tiger: "A house on a finger."

2.
a burning man parade of women riding bikes, with or without exposed breasts. as of 2009, this parade is little more than a 'girls gone wild' event with a twist. under the guise of being a display of female empowerment, this is simply a parade women exploiting themselves for the age-old attention-from-men benefit.

while the parade itself is tolerable because it moves away as soon as it arrives, the estrogen laden gathering (a so-called sacred ritual of empowerment) following the parade is reprehensible to anyone who doesn't hate men.

the ritual forms on the OPEN playa, and immediately sets up a perimeter viciously guarded by recruited males (manginas) with orders to repel all other men. the ritual turns this once open space into an antisocial misandric pit.

this segregating event is so malevolent, that as the 'ritual' expands it runs over male burners doing their own thing. the magina thugs verbally assault and physically intimidate the men, and in some cases threaten violence if a man doesn't divert his eyes or move away from the wicked pit.
the misandrists of critical tits are no longer welcome one the open playa. such future gathering will not be tolerated.

3.
An event born from the society of pranksters and lighthearted industrial magicians known as the Cacophony Society (you may already be a member).

Existing peacefully and chaotically in the Black Rock Desert from 1990 - 1996, in 1997 Burning Man was hijacked by antisocial rouge elements. These rogue elements incorporated the event and formed an LLC. Each year since, Burning Man has lost more and more of its spontaneity and inspirational elements to the tightening grip of the corporation (the Borg), and has now become (in 2010) the antithesis of its origins.

The Cacophony Society (lacking organization by definition) could do little more than scratch their heads or comically protest at the take-over of the event by the Borg. The Borg, being an annoyingly strong hierarchical structure with quasi military overtones, undertones and middletones, cut off the lantern-shaped head of the Man and ripped out his heart. But in primitive societies this destruction called, progress - which the Borg uses as a rationale for their continued reign.

Burning Man, for all intents and purposes, covenants and conditions, restrictions and notifications - DIED in 2008 when Paul Addis was sentenced to prison for burning down the Man several days earlier than planned. This Cacaphony-style prank had the option of either breathing new life into the event, or killing it off forever. And as the Borg chose to press for strict sentencing against Mr. Addis; BMRIP.
It is important to distinguish between 'counterculture', 'subculture' and 'fringe culture'. Burning Man is neither one; it is part of the 'mainstream culture'. It is not a 'movement'.

6.
a non-specific terrorist threat warning designed to keep fear alive amongst the public.

striking non-specific fear into the population is touted to heighten vigilantism, and thus, public safety. in actuality, the odds of dying due to an allergic reaction to peanuts is a vastly greater threat the the public than terrorism.
* Europe warned of Mumbai-style attack plot.

* Peanuts are yummy.

* Skies partly cloudy, with chance of evening showers.
