they don't liek you bringign in drinks b/c they are afraid you spiked them...and they want to make money off alcohol and hydration. but water is really a safety issue as you get hardheads like me that refuse to shell out for a $5 bottle and it gets hot and active. the red sox let you bring in water because of that. on hot summer days i bring in one that's mostly ice from being in the fridge.
Combining your first and second paragraphs, then, if we wanted to throw something at people in the venue, we should theoretically be able to just bring in a frozen bottle of water in a cooler bag with the lid off, then chuck it at people!

well outdoor photos don't need flash. i dunno, i use flash at concerts b/c i figure everyone else does and they're used to it. plus, have you ever been on stage? the lights are pretty damn blinding anyway, and fucking hot. it's no wonder bono wears sunglasses and sweats like a pig.

the sox let you bring lids - in fact the rules say only sealed bottles, though i reuse water bottles a lot and mostly get away with it. (again alcohol)

this one time this guy in front of us was getting drunk off those little plane-sized bottles of liquor he was pouring in his soda. there were like 7 of them on the ground by the time he left!

Munaf Rayani was right in front of me and his energy was just incredible. Made early eighties Bono look sluggish!

I could never push closer. I hated all the wankers in the audience at the Sydney PT concert who felt they had some divine right to be front row for at least one song.

Whenever I want to do that, I stop myself and just cite Wikipedia's sources instead - I get more citations for the value of one!

In covered train stations I'd be better off with flash, but I just won't use it. And I still haven't figured out how to take good twilight and night shots.

At a concert, I'd probably use flash in some circumstances, but not when they're really close and it'll be right in their face. I think that's just rude.

Google it. Basically, it has links to albums hosted on various upload sites. Plenty of stuff on there.

that's better than a lot of the pics i got with my digital w/ flash, though it was a shitty shitty camera. i was in the 2nd row of the ellipse at 12/4 and got some decent pics, a few good ones and lots of blurry ones...but then my hard drive ate them
Yeah, I know they're used to it... but I'm kind of a dork like that Maybe next time I'll be a hardened GA-er and not care so much...

the pics I got with the digital were crap cos I was further back, had no rail to steady myself on, and I have shaky hands/no image stabilisation.... ah well. Lessons learned!

Sucks that your computer ate your pics! I gave everyone copies of my holiday pics, just in case I lost them somehow.
