    Call-Out v. Tap-Out

    Why, thank you! Always a pleasure to observe, preserve, and interpret the traditions of the Order of the Arrow. On a side note, I would pay to see a Meteu vs. Allowat Sakima deathmatch. Do you it would be possible to arrange something like that for NOAC? Perhaps a fight to the death between the Nutikets of all the different lodge C-Teams represented? Of course, being as it would, a physical touch, we would have to incorporate therein some kind of symbolism. I recommend a bow for each Principle, with 12 arrows allotted to each (representing, obviously, the Scout Law). And for the last man standing, he gets the grand prize of...conducting a service project to clean up Washington, DC! This is the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service, after all. TA

    Call-Out v. Tap-Out

    At the Tamegonit Lodge, we tie the kid to a post, lay a bundle of sticks at his feet, drench him in gasoline, and set the whole thing on fire. The candidate must scream the Admonition in at least 16 different Native American languages before the fire is put out. That is followed by forcing the candidate to take off his shirt and then the Principles proceed to brand on his back with a hot iron, an arrow. The candidate his then dragged to the pool where he is thrown in, then held under water for exactly 12 minutes (one for each point of the Scout Law). Then, to follow in the fashion of the noble warrior in the legend, he is forced to face all 4 Principles in hand-to-hand combat. He is then hung upside-down by his feet from an oak tree and left there for 12 days without food (this, of course, to teach the candidate the virtues of strength and self-denial). The final test is to jump off an airplane and recite the Obligation (forwards and backwards) 23 times before he makes a graceful flip and swan dive directly into the council fire. He is then admitted into the Order in the Ordeal Ceremony. This process is usually performed at the local hospital, mental asylum, and/or cemetary, whichever is appropriate. Ah, but not to worry, no one's died yet. Tamegonit Arrowman

    I'm sorry, I just think that there are more effective and intelligent ways to sound/look cool on the Internet "7H@/\/ 1337 7@\_(

  5. Keep the fires of the Scout Oath and Law alive in your heart, and there will always be those who will gather around to feel the warmth of those fires. YIS, TA

    A President of the United States not endorsing the BSA

    The elite left, despite being very vocal, is actually in the minority...for now. And for now, private organizations still have the freedom to keep out whomever they want. TA

    The Decline of the English Language

    Pshh...you guys think you have hard-to-understand people here...you should see some computer game forums some time. An example of a typical post on StarCraft-2.com: L0Lz0rZ@!1! I pWn3d j00 1337 8u77! That, of course, being Leet (or 1337), the primary dialect of internet speak used by illiterate idiots. At least people here use words. We should be thankful for that much. TA

    Paintball safety

    Fun fact: Not only paintball, but LASER TAG is not sanctioned by the BSA as an acceptable activity. Something about firing fast-moving projectiles at another person...too bad those projectiles are little reflective particles of light. TA

    Welcome Newbies, Lurkers, and Geezers

    I'd fall under the young newbie category... I'm a Life Scout and SPL of Troop 260 in Kansas City. I also serve as the youth OA advisor and OATR for our troop. I'm an Ordeal member since August of last year, and I've been an OA zealot ever since. I also wear a Foxman stick, which I'm told attracts Runners like the color red attracts mad bulls. Yeah...if you have any other questions about my Scouting career, just ask in this thread. TA

    Scouters VS Non-Scouters

    Interesting indeed. *marks in his handy-dandy SPL notebook about campfire songs*
