so my son tells me the other day that his patrol wants to change their name to "Illuminati".... I'm scratching my head on that one.... where are they getting this stuff from???

Currently they are "Cyber Ducks" but that was not by consensus and the scout pushing that one dropped out.

 

They got it from The Davinci Code.

The Barenaked Ladles.  They actually found a patch with a ladle.

 

They can sing the theme to The Big Bang Theory.  Their patrol yell is BANG!

That is likely the source given the timing, but the story goes back many decades.  https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Illuminati

 

I remember magazine ads when I was a boy warning that the Illuminati were secretly at work in the background - up to no good. People worried over such things are still around.

The reason they call all these organizations secret societies is because they don't what people to know that they exist.... :eek:

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

The red berets provoke a wide variety of reactions.  I remember that during my time as a Boy Scout, the red beret was introduced as an option, along with the campaign hat and the baseball cap.  (I don't remember whether you could still choose the garrison cap, which had been the only option up to that time.)  Our troop voted for the campaign hat, but within a few years, voted to switch to the baseball cap.  And yet other troops did go for the red beret.  I have seen a couple that still do, even though some effort is involved in obtaining them, since the BSA no longer sells them.

There's a couple dozen of them for sale right now on Ebay. 

 

Between Google and Ebay, there's no longer any reason to come out of your parents basement anymore.

Our Scouts love the red berets, we use them for the color guard.
