    • You'd also think that with all of that time in the woods, somebody would have seen a Bigfoot by now too
    • Forgive me if this has been discussed, but I did a quick search and didn't see a thread or even a post on it. You'd think as often as Scouts go camping, there would be more cases of Scouts reporting sightings of UFOs. There was a famous (at the time) case in 1952 from West Palm Beach, FL of Scoutmaster Sonny DesVergers claiming to have been "attacked" by a UFO (see, for example, https://www.nicap.org/bhoax.htm). The Air Force investigator concluded that that particular case was a hoax. What got me thinking about Scouts and UFOs was a recent episode of "Project Blue Book" on the History Channel titled "The Scoutmaster" which was very loosely based on the DesVergers case. So has anyone here seen a UFO in the woods? Did you report it to the authorities? If so, were you believed? Was there any follow-up?
    • This is troubling. Here we have our "chief ambassador" in the news again, but not for anything good: https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/bear-grylls-faces-fine-after-killing-and-cooking-frog-in-bulgarian-national-park/ar-BBTWcxv?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout He seems to me far too reckless and camera-hungry to serve as a deserving representative of Scouting ideals. I say get rid of him before any other scandals emerge.
    • Well this is getting more interesting as to why Warner Brothers and DC have been quiet.  Last fall,  "Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) teamed up with the DC Super Hero Girls to inspire more girls to participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program®, the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world. The program gives girls real-world experiences managing money, setting goals, meeting deadlines, learning the basics of marketing to customers, and having fun as they learn and earn. This year, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will collaborate with GSUSA to foster the female leaders of tomorrow through the 2019 Cookie Pro contest. Using the power of the DC Super Hero Girls, the contest will inspire Girl Scouts to be smart and courageous as everyday Super Heroes. It will also highlight and reward exceptional cookie bosses who take the lead, set high goals for themselves, bring positive change to their communities, and learn valuable entrepreneurial skills." https://www.girlscouts.org/en/press-room/press-room/news-releases/2018/warner-bros-and-dc-entertainment-team-up-with-gsusa.html  
    • While you all are discussing okra (I never use it) I would suggest boneless thighs, much more flavor.
