If you ask most Burning Man attendees what the annual MDMA and enlightenment mecca is about, they'll probably reference one of the Ten Principles laid out a decade ago by cofounder Larry Harvey: "Communal Effort," maybe. "Radical Self-reliance." The vow to "Leave No Trace" in the Nevada desert.
OK, this headline is misleading because it implies Burning Man was ever not lame, but for old-timers who cherish the annual pyrotechnic MDMA and BO festival, the end has been nigh. Now the New York Times is here with more bad news.
You might think Burning Man is a silly, dust-caked hallucinogen playground for people who should never be naked. You'd be right. But it's more than that: Burning Man 2013 proved to be a place for reconciliation between the Winklevii and the co-founder of Facebook.

If you can't beat Mark Zuckerberg, you can at least look better with your shirt off.
