Not to take this very serious matter to any higher level of hilarity but,
I just can not resist.
As with many ideas that just seem to come out of the ether that surrounds
us all (is that why we're always laughing?, all that ether), this idea
struck me moments ago; and if I could I'd sue it for damages!
Due to the very real possibility of wet porous rocks exploding in the
fire, or even worse in your sleeping bag, I arrived at an exceptional
idea for a replacement! THE POTATO!
The Potato is easilly found at many locations, it comes in standardized
sizes and packaging, can be transported simply, and heated in various
fashions as opposed to the old-fashioned and soon to be obsolete rock!
One other great feature of The Potato is that should one become more
hungry than cold during the night The Potato may be EATEN!
Try that with a hot rock!
Mark my words, The Potato shall very shortly be replacing the "hot rock"
as the heating device of choice for all Scouts! No doubt those in the
Idaho Councils will lead the way for the rest of us.
Always searching for new ways to improve Scouting.
