@skyslang True, science doesn't matter, all that matters is her love of Burning Man. She can say whatever she wants because dude, the playa!
Come on. Look, plenty of other people commenting have posted about how much they love Burning Man and that they're sad they're not there. They also don't say things like "things can't survive in the desert, it's fact!" and then when called on it, with links and evidence, reinforce it, and then say that everyone is just being mean to her with their facts and stuff.
Also, The Hairpin is full of smart ladies who know their science (I'm not one of them). I think saying "so what if her science is wrong?" is kind of crazy talk. Science is important! It's important to get it right! And also to not spread misinformation.
Burning man is literally my version of hell (as I believe I have said here before), but on the plus side, that means that the Bay Area is AWESOME this week, because all of the burners (hahahah burners) are gone. Restaurant reservations, hah, you can just walk in! Great parking. Easy lines at the coffee places. A lot less hipster racism around. Oh people of the Bay Area, enjoy this week. Go to Tartine on Saturday morning and sigh in glee at the line.

@jen325 I think the implicit "but" statements are way sadder than any explicit ones could ever be.
