Star Scout and Life Scout?? Those definitely weren't around when I was in Scouts...

Though they've evolved somewhat over the years, Life and Star scouts were both around in 1911, and can be seen in the BSA handbook of the time... Just how old ARE you kalbahamut?

Scouting started in the UK in 1907, and the Boy Scouts of America started in 1910. Assuming that 1911 stat is correct, kalbahamut must have only been a scout for a year or so.

In kalbahamut's defense, he could be not from the US, where ranking systems are different. I know for a fact that the Tzofim (Israeli Scouts) have a completely different rank system to ours.

Yeah, the system works differently in the UK at least: here it goes beavers, cubs, scouts, explorer scouts and I can't remember after that.

Didn't expect to start so much spirited discussion. I'll take your word for it, plattitude. I never made it past... I don't even remember now. First Class or something. But I was in Cub Scouts. and I was a Weblow (what they call waist-high Boy Scouts).

I never got past Weblow. That has to be the dumbest name ever for a group of middle school kids.

*sigh* Webelos. Never 'Webelo' as Webelos is both the single and plural form of the word. Initially was a pronunciation of the initialism WBL (for Wolf, Bear, and Lion Scouts, before Lions were discontinued), but now stands for "We'll Be Loyal Scouts."

In the USA, Cub Scouts are for boys age 7-10. The ranks are divided by school grade. Tiger Cubs (1st grade), Wolf (2nd grade), Bear (3rd grade), and Webelos (fourth grade). Boy Scouts are for ages 11-18, (or any 10 y/o Webelo who has completed fourth grade in school.) Boy Scouts have ranks and they must earn their rank badges, it has nothing to do with age. The ranks are Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. Older scouts can go into Senior Scouting options, including Explorers and Venturing, both of which are co-ed. I was an Explorer in the 1970s. My late FIL was a scout master for many years and received a Silver Beaver, and all four of his sons became Eagle Scouts.

Never heard of Explorers, but the 4 main areas today are Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Venturing, and Varsity. From what I know about it, Varsity is adventure focused, so maybe it's a bit like what the Explorer program was?

Darn, 19/20. I'm a vegetarian, nevertheless recognized "choice" and "select" as meat qualities, but couldn't come up with anything other than "premium". (By the way, now that I've looked it up I see that prime is better than choice, and choice is better than select, so shouldn't the series be in the other order?)

private, private first class, specialist, corporal, then sergeant. I guess there isn't anything in the instructions that said they were always consecutive.

Specialist and Corporal are both considered E-4s. They aren't necessarily consecutive either. You can go from a PFC to a Corporal.

Instead of "summa cum laude", you may consider "maxima cum laude" because it is the more intermediate form.

Tried "crustaceaus" instead of Cretaceous. I feel like there should have been a period in prehistory that was ruled by giant lobsters and crabs. :D

I've never heard of those scout ranks because I'm not American. They sound sill so I guessed sailor scout. I know even less about sailor moon though. Dunno what prime is. Spent a whole minjute trying to think of Caligula. Could only think of Nero.

Not coming from an English-speaking country, I don't mind not knowing ranks in the military or the Boy Scouts, beef quality grades or even coin names (which, being derived from the Romans, I could have known). Forgetting about Caligula, however, hurts.
