    Indeed it is; the boys have to be 12 got rifle and shotgun. My son had turned 12 last year prior to camp so he was eager to do both and earned both merit badges. Leather working and wood carving are usually first year Scout merit badges at camp.

    What you are seeking/thinking of is Boy Scouts rather than Cubs which is quite different. Our troop is boy-led as it is supposed to be, with 3-4 leaders on the camp outs. Our role is to make sure there are no life safety issues but keeping them on task is the responsibility of the Senior...

    As in “where” are we “going” (Your question could be read several ways). Masawepie Scout Camp in the Adirondack Mts. Closest town is Tupper Lake, NY.

    Also I’ve often asked and heard zero meaningful replies because I picked “too big of a number” (or some other sidestep): what’s to stop businesses from paying more right now? If you have you say a cashier at your business, surely paying them a better than “living wage” will help them, no? Why...

    It also ignores the basic economic concept of scarcity with flowery concepts of “living wage” or “fair and equitable” rather than economic reality.

    Some people are gullible enough to believe anything: “If you like your doctor you can keep him.”

    Scouts, so some “work” for me but not too much. The reading list as it stand right now? Rare Earth by Ward and Brownlee Paradise Lost by Milton

    Rare Earth? Plausible or not?

    I should also add that the Universe is old enough that if it’s possible to have FTL tech/worm hole jumping tech that it should have been invented by now. It also speaks to that without such tech we’re only realistically ever talking about our own galaxy and Andromeda as it gets closer over the...

    Rare Earth? Plausible or not?

    Ha indeed. The thing that has been most on my mind is “what if Sagan is wrong, as in 180 degrees wrong” and the Rare Earth hypotheses is indeed correct? That the possibility of “intelligent life” aka us (although I don’t really think we’re that much more advanced than our simian ancestors in a...

    No, I wouldn’t say he’s a blind follower. I don’t think that’s accurate. LittleBuford has very reasoned out thoughts IMO. Far more so than almost any other left leaning poster on the site or most any poster(s) for that matter. In the main- My point is simply that we’re infants in terms of...

    It’s entirely relevant (see below) and I did notice the variables of the answer presented in the wiki link I provided. I also noted your comment: Is it or is that not an implication that it’s true “because more scientists believe it?”
