Anyway, I just shared this on IRC, and don't feel like retyping, so you get a paste:
<gwen> Oh! Really funny thing happened.
<gwen> Most of the time I just hung out in the uncrowded back area with boo
<gwen> but at some point I was like, "I wanna actually see what these guys
+look like" since from our distance they looked like stick figures.
<gwen> So I strode forward. Now, with those boots on, I'm 6' tall, and I have
+long ago learned that if I need to get through a mosh pit, I gotta do so with
<gwen> But I didn't expect that these two factors would mean that the crowd
+*parted* as I approached.
<gwen> (I also rode the rim of the mosh pit, not actually going in)
<gwen> so that was pretty wild.
<gwen> of course, once I got up there, I realized that the band just looks
+old. Like, the kind of old you get before your time when you do too much bad
+shit to your body.
<gwen> So I pretty much just turned around and strode back :)
<gwen> They looked better as stick figures.
