1. Burners don’t go to an “art festival” in the middle of the desert…they go home to the playa.
2. Burners don’t just show up or attend…they participate.
3. Burners don’t enter the festival…they (finally, finally) get to the Gate.
4. Burners don’t grab a last meal before arriving…they eat Indian tacos while waiting in line.
5. If it’s your first time, it’s never referred to as your “first time”…Instead, you’re a virgin.
