A Conversation for Swiss Army Knives

Boy Scouts

Post 1


The scouts was formed in 1907, so they cannot have been enjoying these knives for over a century. However, I know what you mean. I'm just being pedantic smiley - smiley.

You may be being pedantic but you are not being very accurately pedantic. 'The scouts was formed in 1907' should read, 'The Scouting organisation was formed....' or 'The Scouts were formed....' or, if you are a time traveller and you have stumbled across a small blue planet that looks vaguely interesting and have wandered into a village hall (a drafty wooden single story structure built for the containment of very embarrassing villagers performing very embarrassing activities) on the edge of a patch of short cropped green vegetation on a Thursday evening and the date is 1905 and there is no one there, you could say........., 'The Scouts will be formed in 1907...'. This will be pleasing to you as it will enable you to do something on a Thursday evening whilst you work out how to leave this planet. The down side is you still have to find something to do on a Thursday evening for the next 24 months.
I hope this has helped.

Freddy, Keeper Of The Word "fnar!". Back from the Underworld.

Sounds like you could use a copy of Dr Dan Streetmentioner's Time Traveller's Handbook Of 1,001 Tense Formations. This should tell you that in the Future Semi-Conditionally Modified Subinverted Plagal Past Subjunctive Intentional tense, the way around this problem is to say that the Scouts wioll haven be formed in 1907 smiley - smiley

Besides, a lot of the US scouts that I know use either a Gerber or a Leatherman.

Apologies to Android. My naming could have been a little better smiley - grovel.
