    • Interesting to me when I volunteer to instruct for IOLS, and the number of participants who have completed WB, but not IOLS. The most interesting thing was the WBers who had little skill or knowledge of the basics in IOLS, patrol method, etc... Some of my fellow IOLS instructors were surprised that I never did WB. 
    • Condoms required for 24th Jamboree at Summit: http://www.wnd.com/2018/05/condoms-required-at-scouts-24th-world-jamboree/ Facilitating sex between minors.  This was never an issue before gays and girls.
    • And you can do that in the UK. Just don't try and fly over here with it in your pocket. In the UK you can carry a swiss army knife, with less than a 3" folding blade. Or a multitool with same. You do not need a reason to carry them. No need to feed naked when you visit. They can still be offensive weapons though, if they're being used, errr, offensively.  In the spirit of scouting, I'm not going to say what I find crazy about America.    
    • I personally have no issue with Wood Badge, the program, or the participants generally. My comment was more to do with specific people who focus on Wood Badge and similar adult recognition to the point where it seems be prioritized over youth elements of the program, and how that runs counter to my own views on Scouting.
