    Only use sharp knives. Blunt knives are more dangerous.

    Sea Scouts, well Sea Explorers actually.

    Remember; Some people are like "Slinky's". Worthless, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    I'm a land Scout, there are not even any Air or Sea Scouts in our District (mind you Leeds is a fair distance from the sea)

    North Wiltshire isn't exactly near the sea, unless you count Weston-super-mud, but the Sea Scouts use the lake at Corsham, and we have Air Scouts at RAF Lyneham.
