Can I just say that Alan (I think it was him) saying "National Guard" when Gordon was talking about these scum bags who dress and try to pretend to be soldiers just pissed me off royally. I spent a year in Iraq and know several fellow Guardsmen who have served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and to lump us in with people who fake medals is an insult.

I can't believe someone said that the basketry badge was hard. I earned that in a day once at camp. Same with Metalworking and Leatherworking.

 

And like one said earlier, I remember we were geeks back then too. We played Magic and Gameboy on campouts.

Andy,  I don't care what they say about you.  You are awesome!  Even if a touch slow.  But it's an awesome slow.

Learn up on the Scouts... srsly

 

We are pretty much all nerds... My Scoutmaster spent over an hour talking about D&D on our last campout, several of the people in my troop subscribe to your podcast as well.

 

And we also do some cool shit, too...

 

When I was first starting, we went to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station to learn about Nuclear Science and get the Merit Badge. 

 

Video Games Badge is for the kids under 11 years old.

<strong>Req #9)With an adult’s supervision, install a gaming system.</strong> (could probably include building and installing a PC, but @ 5-10yrs old?)

 

 

Guys in my troop who get their Eagle have gotten over 100 letters from president and other leaders of various groups. 

 

Easiest MB is Art, 15 minute badge tbh. 

 

Scout Handbook is available for the iPhone, unfortunately not on others at this time.

You don't have a time code of where you think someone said that, do you?  We may be filthy, but it's a respectful filthy.

why is it that no one is asking about the N-bomb drop in this podcast? unless i miss heard <played it two times just to make sure> i was shocked that it was said but much more so that no one seems to care about it.

Whatever happened to releasing the podcast on Fridays? My weekend isn't the same without the rant in it.

You also missed the biggest gaming news: SC2 has a release date.

It didn't when we recorded this podcast. We'll mention it in this week's, though. And we didn't release the podcast last Friday because last week's couldn't go up until the Thuban NDA dropped which was Thursday or something. Anyway we should be closer to a reg'lar schedule soon.

It does blow to wait to listen to a podcast recorded on Friday on a Wednesday. I understood the Thurban one, but this one didn't appear to have a reason.

Why the news coverage of the prototype iphone is about whos to blame? I'd think that it would be more interesting to talk about the actual hardware inside the damn thing! IMO the guy who lost it screw up by taking it outside apples labs. Everyone else have done usual things.

Anyway, I still think that this whole losing prototype thing is planned pr-trick to make people intrested of this law muscle flexing and not of the mediocre hardware.

I've got news for you.. Cinco De Mayo isn't a US Holiday. It's a Mexican holiday.

In other news, most Americans recognize St. Patrick's Day even if they're not Irish, Hannukah is a bigger deal in the US than in Israel, and Oktoberfest is a great excuse to drink beer. Why celebrate one culture when you can celebrate all of them?

Cinco de Mayo isn't even a national holiday in Mexico.  The U.S. celebrates Cinco de Mayo more than Mexico.
