but instead just have the thought in your mind and then express it with the tools you have in the language you need to speak even if they're very limited

well said...this is excellent advice...and phrased succinctly

we can 'force' ourselves to think in language, but our thoughts are deeper than language...it's taking the step to see that all language is a tool for communication, not inherent to our brain

really..."look like a fool"

i said safety equipment can be bulky and annoying, and cheating in some areas is understandable, but there is a line you do not cross that everyone in the site understands

so...

what about that makes me "look like a fool"

be specific...it will help if you cite my original comment

you've got nothing but personal attacks and unfalsifiable claims to support your contentions

none of your counterpoints attack my logic or offer a falsifiable counterpoint

everything you've typed here is just random rhetoric to support your ego

if you has a logical counter to my argument you would have used it by now...

except it's not "just" one of anything....not one rude experience, not one asshat Burner (you), not just one example

given what was described, your behavior here, and the Burners I've known, comparing to other festivals I've been to (Rainbow Gathering, Bonaroo, several others), AND other articles about Burning Man on slashdot there is no other conclusion to make

Burning Man encourages people to act with a "superiority complex"

It's baked-in to the event...ask anyone "What is Burning Man" and you can usually see the artificial scarcity of knowledge used as a way to demonstrate your superiority over others on full display....you mystify it to make you "cool" and have artificial superiority to "noobs"...it's all a game for your ego

you understand you're confirming my theory with every post you type, right?

well that's real talk...i can understand "circumstances" i suppose...it is still a dumb mistake IMHO

as i was saying above in another comment, I've worked with hazardous construction materials...nothing like Ebola obv...but we had to wear protective gear and it got annoying

ex: Hard Hat...some jobs require hard hats everywhere, even outdoors in the open air...it's not crazy to cheat a bit in that area...however, only an idiot would go into an area with heavy work being done above them w/o the hard hat...in fact, other workers would stop you as soon as they saw you b/c an injury on site wastes a ton of time

there's strict rules and then common sense and the the line you don't cross...what I'm saying is, given that he was a *doctor* and *knew he was handling Ebola* it seems weird that he'd do something that would put him near that line

i'm all for an abundance of caution...let them wear the HAZMAT stuff....

what kills me is that I've worked with hazardous materials in a construction setting, and there's always a trade-off between being bulky safety equipment and time

but...there is sort of a line you don't cross...like hard hats...some job sites are "Hard Hat Only" as soon as you enter the property...which is a bit silly...but you're an idiot if you are guiding a crane placing I-beams and don't have your Hard Hat on

see what I mean?

i just don't see why competent people can't get this right

thanks for the response...

my point is, that if YOU know this then the people who make the procedures must also...and therefore there already be adaptations/improvements to procedures OR if that can't happen then quarrantine

if we know the threat exists, that's enough information to mitigate it in SOME way

that's the problem here IMHO...

IMHO, either Ebola is easier to transmit than we are being told _OR_ these Ebola doctors who get the disease are FSKING IDIOTS

if it is so damn hard to get, how the hell do Doctors who should be the best at following procedure can get?

i think people are just morons, no matter what degrees they have

you can chase rhetorical circles all you want but you cannot address this fact:

the people should WANT suggestions for improvement, and the response TFA author got indicates a "superiority complex" mentality

this is correct, and no matter what your experience you cannot contradict it, given what you have indicated

they should welcome suggestions, TFA author was not welcomed and was instead give a line of BS

the fact that you think that b/c you were in the ice line once makes any of the above not correct **shows that Burners and Burning Man is about demonstrating abstract superiority**

they should welcome suggestions, TFA author instead was treated insultingly and rudely....ACCEPT THIS FACT
