    The amount of paperwork is asinine. Just to see the tip of the iceburg of bullshit, one has to wait 6 weeks for them to process the paperwork before you can host a party and actually get the eagle.

    I didn't buy into the appeal of being a scout. Even less so when my friend was kicked out for coming out.

    You get to put it on your resume.

    Honestly you can probably use that time you use in scouts to study, to community service, and hike or camp, with half the time used and more success overall. Honestly if I have a son and he want to join, Ill just send him to some summer camp and during the winter camp on the appilacian trail for a weekend, and he will have just about the same experience and for success just have him study and do community service. Again you can do all that in half the wasted time and money.

    US military does. You get promoted right after basic training just for being an Eagle Scout. You pretty much skip a year of ranking up with it. So conversely a lot of places/jobs in the US look at it highly or at least understand its importance.

    It's not like he's being given a general position, but it does make sense why they do it. They honor ppl who have been part Of an organization that makes you a pawn in a larger agenda with a tiered system of which you got the highest rank.

    Depends on the group really. Some are really relaxed.

    I loled.

    Mine was mad hard, but most eagle shits get by with something like this. Why? They have fantastic paperwork, its all in the paperwork.

    The only thing ive seen you really getting respect for is being able to eat first in the dinning hall and getting applause for it... while your in line to eat. Again that's about the limit of respect.

    Eagle Scout is basically a matter of going to camp every year and not dropping out before you're 18. I got to Life scout by attrition but then I became too disgusted with my troop at 16 and quit. Being an Eagle is pretty special though, usually considered the same thing as being Assistant Senior Patrol Leader.
    "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Time Enough For Love, by Robert Heinlein

    Military genius comes in many forms.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."
