Burning Man Bummer: Ticket Lottery Won't Fill Demand 

Wednesday, Feb 8 2012

Burning Man's first-ever ticket lottery has had far more requests for tickets than the 40,000 made available. What does this mean?

• Princess GlitterSparkle is bummed

• No one will ever get to go to Burning Man again, ever

• San Franciscans finally have something other than Ross Mirkarimi to talk about

• This empirical evidence that not every entrant wins a lottery shakes the scientific world

• So many people want to go to Burning Man that it has clearly failed as a social movement

• For the next eight months, everybody who knows anybody who works for Burning Man will be bombarded with requests to hook them up

• One of four bacon-themed camps may not make it out this year

• By July there will be a tidal wave of surplus tickets as people decide not to go ... just like every year
