Star Gazing:
Sam Houston Area Council

A scout walks to the center of the “campfire” looking up at the sky, keeping his head and neck very still.  Soon he is joined by another scout and then another and so on.  Each scout looks around and then begins to look toward the sky.  The last scout enters and asked the scout next to him, "what are we looking at.  He answers "I don't know, Stars, I guess." and then that scout asked the next until the question and get to the original scout.  The original scout replies: "I don't know.  I've got a stiff neck!"

Things that make you go Hmm:
Sam Houston Area Council

  • Do Stars clean themselves with meteor showers?
  • If athletes get athlete’s foot, do astronauts get mistle-toe?
  • If outer space is a vacuum, who changes the bags?
  • Why do tourists go to the tops of tall building and then pay money to use telescopes to look at things on the ground?
  • Did you know that all the planets in our solar system rotate counter-clockwise, except Venus?  It is the only planet that rotates clockwise.
  • Did you know that it is impossible for most people to lick their own elbow?
  • Did you know that odds are that 75% of you just tried to lick your elbow?  (The rest wanted to)
