Simply because someone doesn't understand the usefulness of something, or doesn't use it themselves does not mean it isn't useful to others. Very little is actually necessary, so to use required as the threshold for usefulness or whether it should exist is hardly compelling.

Don't misunderstand. I *know* what they are for. I just don't get why something like that is necessary. I don't "get" Twitter. I couldn't care less that you are in line at Starbucks and someone cut in front of you, or that you think a certain cat video is cool. No offense, but no one is THAT interesting.

I'm in the minorities of millenials that doesn't use twitter. But as you know, twitter popularized the # because it helps their algorithims tracking. No other reason.

I don't use Twitter because I rarely put my thoughts out on facebook, so why add another service I won't use.

Stop by the house and cook a meal for me, make sure you figure in the cost of the meal and mileage to get here and when you're done I have a couple of patches you can sew on my uniform.  THEN you can have the MB.  :)

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

You might be surprised at how appealing thay sounds. Cuppa joe around a campfire with some stories would make for a great time.

When I was a kid (under 18) my parents would not let me use social media. I am very glad they did. Now I am old enough to deal with it and only use FB. I only friend people i actually know. Thanks to Scouts i can cook, sew, manage my time and finances, and can lead (or is that manage?). For all that i thank Scouting and my family. #noneedforadulting

Well, I thought the purpose of BSA was to prepare our Scouts to be adults.

That's why I posted the video, it's an all-important opportunity we have with other people's kids.  Especially those parents who haven't figured out how to be good parent/adult role models.
