Re: What's the Point(less)?
Poster: Mark Schuldenfrei <schuldy@abel.MATH.HARVARD.EDU>
Greetings from Tibor.
I think what might be very interesting to try would be an Interkingdom
Potlatch. For those of you unfamiliar with the term Potlatch, it is a
practice developed by the Kwakutel (sp? Northwest Coast) Indians. They
would get together and build a large fire and you gained prestige by
being the one to burn up / destroy the most valuable goods. There's a
lot more to it than this, but I believe you get the idea.
I think you may be confusing a Potlach with a Bonfire of the Vanities?
