I'm tired of "riders threw plenty of beads" being a factor that might affect the rating. I don't mind encouraging more creative throws, especially handmade ones that prevent Mardi Gras from being nothing but a barrage of "made in China" garbage. But just throwing beads? I think riders feel pressured to throw as much as possible, which leads to armfuls of junky plastic beads filling our streets. I like the flirt. I like the begging. I like a rider pointing right at me and then the sting as the beads fly right into my hands. Now I get a giant wad of beads thrown directly at my head, and more than likely, I'll just let them bounce right off me onto the ground. We need to stop this bead inflation and realize it's quality over quantity!
