June 6 2012 Transits of Venus
Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Indeed, only six such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874 and 1882). The next transit of Venus will occur on 2012 June 06.
The principal events occurring during a transit are characterized by contacts. The event begins with contact ...I which is the instant when the planet's disk is externally tangent with the Sun. The entire disk of the Venus is first seen at contact II when the planet is internally tangent with the Sun. During the next several hours, Venus gradually traverses the solar disk at a relative angular rate of approximately 4 arc-min/hr. At contact III, the planet reaches the opposite limb and is once again internally tangent with the Sun. The transit ends at contact IV when the planet's limb is externally tangent to the Sun. Contacts I and II define the phase called ingress while contacts III and IV are known as egress. Greatest transit is the instant of minimum angular separation between Venus and the Sun as seen from Earth's geocenter...

If you still have questions or concerns about the ticket process this year, chances are they're answered in our Ticket FAQ:

)'( Last year BM Tix on Craiglist started out HIGH and ended up going at face value before the event
RELAX. You are safe enough to ASSUME you are going. Plenty folk asked for more tix than they needed to cover their friends / family / camps.
You might post a Tix ad in the WANTED section of CL 
http://sfbay.craigslist.org with fun creative text of who you are, once a week if you are bored, or try different text each time.
also List trades or OFFERS of what you will exchange in the SIGNATURE of your EMAIL
speaking of TRADES take a look at http://sfbay.craigslist.org/bar
perhaps you can ask for what you want; perhaps stop saying oh I'm fine each time a friend or stranger asks how you are doing. Instead answer that you seek a BM ticket then repeat your offers or trades. Let your friends be your angels and matchmakers. :)

Note if you offered BM $390 your ran in all 3 races. If $320 then 2 races. if $240 then only 1 race hence the % spread...

- STAY INFORMED. The latest ticket information and resources can be
found at http://tickets.burningman.com and will be disseminated
regularly on the JRS and/or the Burning Blog.

Possible interpretation of BM ticketing process (spreadsheet)
Realizing that the BM ticketing process results are a bit of a conundrum, I had a rough and ready shot at building a spreadsheet (with a glass of wine, you understand) to try to gauge the probabilities of winning tickets. With a few basic assumptions (and assuming the process worked in the same way as advertized), a few rather interesting results emerge whch seem to be about we are seeing. Of course, it would have been more predictive to do this before we had some results so I couldn't fix the assumptions (accidentally or inadvertently), but oh well!
Rough probabilities of winning a ticket at all seem to be:
If you bid $240, 14%
If you bid $320, 41%
If you bid $390, 95%
I could be quite wrong, of course. There do seem to be some results on our yahoogroups and on our facebook page "SiliconVillageBurners" that seem to correlate with this a little bit. You be the judge. More results, the spreadsheet and an explanation can be found at our new webpage http://www.siliconvillageburners.org Hope useful.

alternet   huffington post   moveon   credo action   I never link to these sites because they are anti 2nd amendment. 
I believe if you lose your 2nd amendment you will next lose your 1st, lose all of your rights and liberties. History proves me right.

Second Amendment is not about hunting deer. It's about stopping dictators from taking over your country.

Gun Control 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RoMqB0VU4U 

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily. No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up. 

GUN CONTROL WORKS ask the experts: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Kim Jong-il,

Washington didn't use his right to free speech to defeat the British, he shot them. 
Most often when a government takes a peoples guns, it then takes their land or their lives. 

Sheriff: Time For Citizens To Arm Themselves 
http://www.wyff4.com/r/29638219/detail.html

"In Germany back in 1923, a man put all the money he had into a wheelbarrow and headed to the store to buy a loaf of bread. But when he got there, the store was closed. He left his wheelbarrow outside the door, figuring he'd come back when the store opened, knowing the money in it wasn't worth enough for anyone to bother stealing. He was right. When he came back, all the money was still there, dumped on the ground, but someone had stolen his wheelbarrow." 

For Hitler so loved the Jews that he took away for their guns so they wouldn't shoot each other. NOT!
Do you believe that? You MUST ask yourself why a Govt wants to take away your right to self defense and what the consequences might be.
