Rant: Comparison

This is more of a rage thing.  There's this place called Newport Sea Base.  They teach Merit Badges.  The counselors don't know how to do what they teach.  They eat and listen to music.  They ride in motorboats.  They swear and throw tennis balls at you while you canoe.  They just kinda stink.  Anyways,  I decided to do a compare and contrast with Emerald Bay.  The counselors are really mean.  :'(

I just heard.  This kid went to take a merit badge.  A requirement was to watch a movie.  They watched Finding Nemo.  ARE YOU KIDDING??? AT EMERALD BAY THEY WATCHED A HOUR LONG DOCUMENTARY OF THE OCEAN.  AT NSB THEY WATCHED FINDING NEMO,  PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN,  AND CARTOONS!!!!!!!!
I mean, is that a joke?
