The Tunguska Blast... It's Real
- You have been a participant in the biggest interdimensional cross-rip since the Tunguska blast of 1909!
Scouting for BoysNo. This is not a dating manual for girls. A series of magazine articles on woodland tracking skills, urban survival tips, and general self-improvement have been published in book form by Robert Baden-Powell. The book is a best seller right out the chute. You are seeing the beginning of the Boy Scout movement. Many hail this book as a new vision in education, but the author's only intent is to teach self-reliance. In these days children are educated to follow the herd, and in military service young men are trained to follow orders without question or initiative, but Baden-Powell remarks, "...if their officer was shot they were as helpless as a flock of sheep. Tell one of them to ride out alone with a message on a dark night and ten to one he would lose his way." While Baden-Powell agrees that formal education is valuable and discipline is a requirement in the military, Scouting makes a boy into a well-rounded and dependable individual. The book, "Scouting for Boys," will remain a best seller for decades to come.  
- As a matter of fact I didn't actually start the Boy Scout Movement, because the blooming thing started itself unseen.

- Edward Teller (Inventor of the hydrogen bomb. He was tired of using just an atom bomb.) 
- Estée Lauder (The queen of cosmetics. She will be listed as one of the top 20 business geniuses of the 20th century.) 
- John Galbraith (Economist under FDR. "Faced with the choice between changing one's mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof." According to Milton Friedman, that includes John.)
