    Video Game Addiction

    I take it that you haven't done very much research on the subject, have you? Talk to anybody that can say" I don't see what the problem is with this drinking of beer, I'm not addicted, so no one else can be either...it's nothing but a bunch of hogwash... etc. " OR " I found this thread to be funny".. OR " just get sick of people always trying to blame video games " or "The problem isn't video games -The problem is just poor parenting!! or " particularly like the bit about dopamine. Oh gosh, playing video games shows up in da "chemical" dopamine in the brain, just like amphetamine addicts!" Just insert durgs, porn, and it will sound the asme. All I asked was for people to read it to their Scouts and post back their reactions. Since all of you are posting here, that tells me that you have acess to the same Internet that I do. Do your OWN checking and post back what you find. No one has done that yet.

    Nah, Scouts and Scouters are always "assuming the position", by standing up and singing

    Wow, I'd almost forgot about this thread. Glad to see someone else using that book. Let us know how it turns out. I wonder how many actually read that letter to their Scouts.

    Smoking Leaders

    Joni4TA, You missed the point entirely. I did not CALL you a sucker, but said that you are a sucker (how else does a smoke work, but to stick it into your mouth and draw down on it to get the burning smoke into your body?) YOU are the one calling yourself a SUCKER. Like Greg Nelson said, "I dunno, but I read your post as a funny item addressed to a generic "you", not an insult to a specific person.", I did not mean just you, Joni, but to all smokers. It is a quote that I use for my scouts as well as to my Sunday School students. It gets the point across rather well, don't you think? I myself like to have a beer once in a while, (something that is legal as well), but I don't bring any beer to a troop activity, nor do I go off and go to a bar and get some beer. Joni, I am truely sorry that you are still addicted to tobacco and hope that one day you will overcome your addiction and stay off of the stuff. I know that it is something that is very diffucult to do, since nicotine addiction is one of the hardest addictions to overcome, but I am sure that you will be able to do it. (it still amazes me that early man saw a burning stick in a campfire and said to himself, hmm, that looks like fun... I think that I'll stick that into my mouth and suck on it) Peace to all (This message has been edited by ustbeeowl)

    Smoking Leaders

    Joni4TA + PeteM, I'm sorry that my comments have offended you and anyone else on this board, but it makes me so mad I could spit nails when I see people throwing their lives away by smoking. Yes, Joni4TA, I know that you said that you know that it is a bad habit, and that you wish that you could stop, but I have known too many friends and relatives that have died, wishing that they could have stopped for good. Well, they have stopped for good, leaving their families to pick up the pieces of their lives and to go on. The families encouraged them to quit, much like yours have as well, but they died trying. Have you ever seen a friend or a parent on a heart-lung machine, because their lungs are gone from cancer? I have, and it's not a pretty site. Your Scouts know that you smoke, and wish that they could make you stop, but they can't. Only you can do that. I'm sure that they don't want to hold a memorial service for you, stating how wonderful a person and leader that you used top be, but you couldn't stop smoking. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE quit, if not for your sake, but for theirs and your family's sake. I edited it as to not to offend anyone else. like I said, I'm so mad at smokers and their habit ...(This message has been edited by ustbeeowl)

    So, how big is your district?

    It's not the size that matters...

    A lot of truth in this

    >>>>>>>>>> We need to be very careful attributing all things that are good to a god, and implying that a person without a god in their lives is not so good.

    Something to be Concerned About

    The stuff that I have seen boils at 212{F} and freezes at 0{C}
  13. So, Are saying is that the Scouts run the troop, or is it the PLC runs the troop? There is a difference. I have a couple of Scouts that won't do the tasks that their Patrol leaders say to do IF they perceive that adults had a hand in the plan. How would you explain to the Troop that the PLC is the one that came up with the program/plan?

    Anybody here own a pocket rocket?

    Getting back on track. It looks like a neat stove. I like the fact that there are NO moving parts to break, and in the dead of winter, propane just won't boil, so you would really get cold in a hurry. This stove looks like it could be a neat, small campfire.
  15. I have a couple of boys in my troop that feel that the troop is not boy run if the adults have anything to do with the troop at all, but at meetings, they tend to get into trouble >>because
