    The Boy scouts also bans girls from its ranks so it must be discriminatory.

    • Cory says:

      “The BSA is not banning over-40 BMI boys or leaders from scouting in general, but rather from this specific event. That’s because—before you even get to the physically demanding and potentially dangerous “high-adventure” activities like white-water rafting, high-ropes, and rock climbing—navigating the Summit Reserve itself is a formidable physical challenge”

      A little bit more information

    • Howard says:

      It was thinking about banning gays too. The boy scouts are turning into an exclusive club.

    The rabbit disaster plan sounds exciting:

    “Fire. Flood. Tornado. Air conditioning going out. Ice storm. Power failures,” Hahne said, listing a few of the calamities for which he needed a plan to save the rabbit.

    • Ashley says:

      Apparently he had to get a licence for the rabbit too. But that law had been on the books for 40 years

    This policy really doesn’t make any sense; people who smoke pot often get the munchies while they smoke. They need to exercise to shed the excess pounds. When I first heard about this I became rather agitated — so agitated I had to light up a joint just to calm down. But then I realized that when I’m smoking pot I don’t want to exercise anyway. I just want to munch on Doritos, French fries, gummy bears, potato chips, candy bars. There’s always a convenience store a couple blocks from the park. Maybe I’ll get my exercise by jogging over 7-11 to buy more munchies.

    I could believe that would happened in Colorado.

  5. Charles Harris says:

    Thought the Boy Scout policy article didn’t merit a “headline I wish I hadn’t seen” designation. Watch the video, seems like a fair and in many ways positive policy to encourage health and goal setting among the scouts.
