To paraphrase Douglas Adams, it appears that there is a God who is up to mischief. But what god? Hard to say, but whichever god it is, he or she or it is obviously pissed off at the Boy Scouts.
Need proof? Over the last two weeks, the following has happened to the Boy Scouts (not in chronological order):
- lighting strike kills Eagle Scout
- a total of five adults are killed by lighting in a five-day period between July 25 and July 29
- 60 Scouts come down with food poisoning
- 300 Scouts are overcome by extreme heat waiting for “President” Bush to arrive at a memorial service for four of the adults killed by lighting in the above story
Now if that doesn’t sound like divine retribution, then what does? Lightning strikes, food poisoning, heat sickness… Just who did the Boy Scouts piss off?
