In our last post, our intrepid heroes had just visited the fearsome Medusa, and received a whispered quest, which led them to a phage display. This, however, was just the beginning…
The sign promised ‘FIERY DEMISE’. THERE ARE NO JOKES AT BURNING MAN. READ THE BACK OF YOUR TICKET:
Some important signage about safety considerations, and why it is best to be magnanimous (and possibly fleeing) in victory:

It was time to golf. S stepped up, and carefully aimed the catapult…:
…And carefully observed the progress:
The ball solved the binomial theorem, as only a non-Zeno-ite could…”

I love NFPA symbols. By their nature, they cannot convey all information, but they convey very important information (and I would argue the most important information) at a glance, on a 0-4 scale.
