Your favorite moments of desert bus past

Hey guys, I'm going to be writing a thing about desert bus, and I'm looking for a few short clips that might help someone who doesn't know anything about DB get excited/get the vibe of the whole thing. What are your favorite clips from desert buses past?

Re: Feminism general thread

This is long, and it's long because there are no easy answers. Blarg. I don't think the flaws should be ignored, and I'm sorry if I implied that, it's mostly... Hmm, how to express it... This isn't just down to Anita, but a lot of the pro-feminist voices I'd heard, but the general feel I got for wha...

Re: Color-blindness

I got a perfect score on the hue test the last few times I took it. I've always had excellent color vision. I make up for it by having terrible depth perception. Certain forms of astigmatism or other vision disorders make it impossible for your eyes to process the "Magic-eye" style 3D. The...

Re: The Big Relationship Thread

Human interaction is strange. There's a guy I'm friends with who's about ten years older than me (I'm around Kathleen's age). Before a few weeks ago, we weren't really 'direct' friends, we were more in the same friend orbit. But recently, we've been geeking out over some books recommended to us by o...

I know this may sound like madness, but truly... booking travel and getting passes when you arrive is not so much of a gamble as you might imagine. The fact is, the people willing to sell at face often only know they have extra tickets when PAX approaches. Every time I've sold spares, I've only know...

Re: #YesAllWomen

I wanted to weigh in on the idea that fear of men is in any way analogous to a fear of some minority group based on statistics. One of the points of #YesAllWomen is that a huge, huge majority of women, close enough to 100% that it makes no difference, have suffered from sexual harassment or assault ...

Re: The Big Relationship Thread

I play magic at prereleases, and I'm single... but it's also very hard for strangers to accurately judge my age. So unless I walk around loudly making references to having played during the Ice Age, all the people my own age assume I'm a baby. I'm also terrible at judging ages, so sometimes I can't ...

Re: Books you're reading now

My shipmates found out that I've never read any of the Aubrey/Martin books. Considering I portray a sailor in 1813, this was considered unacceptable. Multiple copies of Master and Commander were thrust at my and apparently I'll have immediate access to the whole collection. I am in the same boat (H...

I posted the "8% of my love" song mostly as a joke. One line in there is sort of relevant, though. "eight hundredths of the time you're the only girl I'm dreaming of." It's about time being divided and lessened, not love. I have to tell you, as an older child, the love parents ha...

Selfishness is the foundation of modern romance. This is why my blind spot is so very bad - I've fought for years to tear the selfishness from my heart. I can't say I've succeeded, but compared to where I once was? I've come a long way indeed, and I guess sometimes I simply can't allow myself to co...

Re: The Big Relationship Thread

You misunderstand. You were saying that having dated wouldn't give you any insight into how to behave around girls. That's wrong. Social interaction (such as dating) at that age is exactly how you first learn how to behave around people (and the opposite sex) in social situations. If you don't date...

Re: The Sex Thread

Yeah. If you're a guy, shower every day. Use a decent soap or body wash. I actually like natural soaps... they come in bar form and can be bought in the natural section of a supermarket or at health food stores. Something like Old Spice Body Wash is probably good too, but if you're using a scented b...
