Scouts to no longer bring penknives on camping trips

Scouts will soon have to survive without their trusty penknives on camping trips thanks to Britain's growing knife crime culture.
Scouts used to be allowed to carry sheath knives on their belts
New advice published in Scouting, the official in-house magazine, says neither Scouts nor their parents should bring penknives to camp except in "specific" situations.
Scouts have traditionally been taught how to use knives correctly, using them on camping trips to cut firewood or carve tools.
Just fucking shoot me.
Jesus Fucking Christ this shit is out of hand.
A Boy Scout without a knife.... just think about that for a minute.
Who is the fucking idiot that doesn't seem to know that a knife is THE most important survival tool a person can have?
This is off the charts.
Shit, I was a boy scout,the biggest thrill I had was getting the official knife. That is where I learned how to safely handle a knife in the first place!
If I lived in that shithole Nanny State I would be throwing a fit right now, hell, I'm having a fit anyway.
Pussy Mother Fuckers.
It is a right of passage that a young man is given a pocket knife and taught how to use it, take care of it, sharpen it and how to use it SAFELY.
Good Lord this pisses me off.
How the fuck is the kid supposed to cut rope?
Cut tent pegs?
Make a Fuzz Stick to start a fire?
(Notice the little boys voice in the background)
A knife is the back bone of Scouting.
How ya gonna cook without a knife?
I would yank my kid out of that , buy a fucking Boy Scout Manual and teach him myself, hell, I remember most of it anyway.
Back in the day, the Boy Scouts actually taught you some serious skills.
I remember the misery of packing a thirty five pound pack up and over some MOUNTAINS when I was freakin' twelve and weighed a hundred fucking pounds, for two weeks.
Blisters, bugs, misery galore and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything.
When I say mountains, I ain't fucking kidding.
It took us damn near two weeks to get to these bitches, they are called The Three Sisters.
Then we hiked through the saddle between two of 'em to get picked up.
By the way, FUCK YOU Bobby Jindell.
Hell yes I had a fucking pocket knife and I used it every damn day.As a matter of fact, my Scoutmaster sent three guys out to find me while I was on a cliff a mile from camp because nobody else could get a fire started, while we were on the flank of one of those bitches, camped in the snow and I used my knife to make a fuzz stick out of a frozen stick and had a roaring fire in twenty minutes.
Take away their knives...
I was TWELVE!
As a matter of fact, I carry up to THREE knives at work every damn day.
Each one has a purpose.
My message to you spineless assholes taking away the most important tool a scout can have is to Shut The Fuck Up and go scrub a toilet with yer mouth.
Let the boys become men, as it should be.
My friend DarkBlack nails it yet again.
"Weapons Grade Stupid".
I just fuckin' love that guy.
Thanks fer stopping by dude.
