SUSY Bet @ Burning Man

Here's a video I came across of some physics students and Garret Lisi talking SUSY physics at Burning Man, August 30, 2006. Apparently Garret is betting that SUSY particles will not be found at the LHC by 2010. Either way, I enjoy the physics discussion amidst the echoing electronic music. Perhaps Garret should schedule a quantum gravity mini-seminar at Burning Man 2010 and invite physics and math PhD students from around the world!

This Burning Man thing sounds interesting, but I found their website a bit confusing: if one has to bring enough water and food to last a week in the desert, and a bike to travel around the village, basically you need to arrive by car, if you want to be comfortable. So what is all this garbage about 'survival skills'? Sounds like an attraction for people who like to party.
