“the goal of the lottery was to give Burners around the world an equal chance to get a ticket” – well, if this actually was the goal, it has been an epic #FAIL.
“When you scalp it and don’t sell it for face value, it keeps so many people from going” – WTF? I guess maths and logic are not pre-requisites for Burners. Let me explain it – if you have a $300 ticket, and I have a $1000 ticket, that’s 2 people who can go. If you have a $300 ticket, and I have a $300 ticket, that’s 2 people who can go. 2=2. If I sell my $1000 ticket for $300, that does not create 2 more tickets.
