This randomly came across my FB feed this morning so I figured I’d share it with you all.

An attendee of Burning Man decided to jump into the Burning of the Man yesterday in the Black Rock Desert. He was airlifted to a burn unit but is feared dead.

According to the NY Daily News:

Firefighters and other rescue crews chased the man, who slipped through a safety perimeter and sprinted for the flames at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Here is the update about it on the Burning Man site. The comments though are where things get extra special.

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
