I'm at Slippery Falls Scout Ranch right now and the salad bar smells like fish from the camp lake, but there's no fish. What should I do?

It could be a burnt electrical outlet.

Surprisingly, when an outlet burns out it smells like fish.

If you're going to teach them how to be men then you have to teach them how to suck it up. Now get in there and eat some salad man!

Unwillingly. The heat is unbearable. I love scouting, but it's a workout on my otherwise sedentary, computer-programming butt. My youngest son is 11 and he can't go to camp alone until he's 12. It's a labor of love.

Mark's low approval of other polls is due to his not taking the time to rate polls, not that he's Rating them downward. Apparently the algorithm doesn't consider the measure as a % of actual ratings given. It's misleading. Knowing this I regret .....

It's not a lack of taking the time. Not liking one poll says something about his psyche. That's what I've been trying to explain to him. It's like traveling through life without saying something nice to someone. It probably means you're not nice...

I personally don't care Rob. I'm not his therapist. He can rate them all or none and I'm okay with it. I'm just happy to have learned how the algorithm works so that I don't falsely judge anybody about it again.

This is a trick question. What kind of man-making camp has a salad bar?
The only food in that chow hall should be a roast pig, that you caught, on a spit, and some tree bark.
