    Dyb, dyb, dyb, We'll dob, dob, dob!!
    In retrospect, I wish I had completed my crystal radio for my tawny star.

    Something interesting:
    129th Toronto Scouting Group

    The 129th Toronto Scouting Group (also known as the Queer Toronto Scouting Group) was believed to be the first group worldwide exclusively for gay, lesbian, and bisexual youths and adults. The group was founded by gay activist Bonte Minnema and chartered by Scouts Canada in 1999.[8][9] Consistent with Scouts Canada policy, the group was co-ed. It made world headlines, including the BBC World News, when a story by Reuters first brought attention to the group's existence.
    In October 1999, American Pastor Fred Phelps and his congregation at the Westboro Baptist Church planned to protest outside the Ontario offices of Scouts Canada. However, Canada Customs denied them entry into the country. This prevented Phelps and his church members from appearing, and left supporters of the group to rally outside the offices without opposition.
    The group folded in 2001 due to a lack of interest.

    God be with you, Occupiers. God IS with you.
