The Dangerous Book for Boys

I like this:

The Dangerous Book for Boys by the British brothers Conn and Hal Iggulden is a practical manual that returns boys to the wonder and almost lost world of tree houses and pirate flags. It celebrates the art of teaching an old mutt new tricks and accepts skinned knees as an acceptable risk for running through fields with the same dog yapping along.

I have two girls. I don't want them to grow up and have to marry some PC, metrosexual pussy. I'm going to do my best to ensure that they can handle themselves but I want them to be able to have a man who can take care of them if TSHTF. I hope we see more like this.

Dave, even if you don't have any sons, you can help raise boys into men by volunteering with the Boy Scouts.

BSA needs volunteers, and you don't have to have a son in a troop to help out.

Look in your local phone book for the Boy Scout office in your area.
