How Burning Man Works

You've probably heard about Burning Man, it's a week-long party in the middle of a desert made of 50 thousand people living pretty much without rules, pretty much without any exchange of money and often nude and on drugs.

The Engrossing Mystery of Shoefiti

There's a part in the movie Big Fish where the protagonist, Edward Bloom, loses his shoes to a girl named Jenny Hill. Jenny doesn't want Edward to leave the subtly mythical town of Spectre and indoctrinates him as per the town custom: tying the laces of one's pair of shoes and throwing them over a telephone wire, to dangle out of reach. The logic, ethereal as it is, goes that without one's shoes, one can no longer travel and might as well settle down.

This just in from CNN.com - the case of the eighth grade girl who was strip searched in her middle school is now heading to the Supreme Court. Some details if you aren't familiar: In 2003, Savana Redding was an eight grade honor student in a middle school in Arizona and was pulled into the principal's office after a fellow student accused her of providing prescription-strength ibuprofen pills. She denied it, so they searched her backpack and found nothing. Even though she had never been in any kind of trouble before, she was then taken to a private room and by three female school employees and made to strip to her underwear. They also had her pull her bra out for further inspection. No drugs.
