    It's true, people. I'm kind of a silly person, but that doesn't invalidate my experience or my upbringing. I help my community, and am genuinely honest with people to a fault. I hold the same liberal...

    Honestly, you all have more in common with the bullies I knew in the Boy Scouts than you might know.

    People can think for themselves.

    Again, dude, you were obviously never a Boy Scout. This is the main thing that differentiates it from Cub Scouts. Which is obviously what you were.

    If I was, then I wouldn't have continually admitted that there were parts about it that weren't great. Way to answer my question, by the way.

    This was a waste of time.

    It's not. Yeah, there were parts about it that weren't great, but I wouldn't take back any of the time that I spent in it. I'd even argue that most of my social skills came from involvement in the...

    Pine wood derby was a lot of fun, but again I think that was a Cub Scout thing. Not Boy Scouts. Or maybe it was just that way for my Troops.

    Mm. I think it's kind of sad that you're trying to poke fun at the Scouts. It's a good institution and instills valuable knowledge in the youth who take part in the program. Just because your...
