Somebody posted a link to a site that sells Boy Scout stuff on another mailing list I'm on. It includes "spoof" patches. That is, merit badges that don't actually exist and training/skill bars that are not *remotely* approved.

Pity it likely didn't exist in 1997.

Here's one that Tuck and Da Boys have definitely earned:

Oh yes, that "Disorienteeering" merit badge reminds me of something I heard about once.

Seems someone was rather unhappy with another patrol so at a camporee, while that patrol was doing the orienteering course, someone followed them standing a few feet away.

With one of those "150 lb pull" magnets in his pocket. Which was enough to give a *considerable* compass deviation.(1)

I'm picturing Tuck & da Boyz burying some magnets around the area where an orienteering contest is to be held. If carefully placed, they'd mess up the attempts to complete the course without causing major enough deviations to arouse suspicion.

(1)What? You don't think *I* would ever do something like that, do you?

You know, when I read "Tuck & Co vs the BSA" I didn't think "Boy Scouts of America," I thought "Business Software Alliance" -- you know, the anti-piracy guys. Which I think Tuck wouldn't have a lot of love for either.


Don't call me Shirley. You will surely make me surly.
