Adding "Burning Man Camps" to list of times when neural net reached human-level* performance. List also includes:

List of times when neural net exceeded human-level* performance:
pickup lines
april fool's jokes
candy hearts
*when I search through the output for the good ones; never use unfiltered char-rnn output folks
