What was the only thing that both Anwar Sadat of Egypt and King Hussein of Jordan said they would go to war with Israel over?

Thank you, dotcom.

OK, brackett, fair enough.

Let's hear it then...

I discovered today that there are only 6 countries in the world where Boy Scouts do not exist (Andorra, Cuba, China, North Korea, Laos and Myanmar).

Hopefully this is more interesting than my previous attempt...

Drug taking allegations were common in the ancient Olympics just like with the modern ones and one of the most commonly used performance enhancers was the Fly Agaric, Amanita muscaria. It is even rumoured that Pythagoras of the triangle fame took it when he won his boxing gold to give him a crazy hallucinogenic boost.

I was a boyscout Oh dear I have revealed too much in Hong Kong. They still do it there and thats a part of China. Guess Mainland is different though.

Hang on, we used to mingle with Chinese mainland Boy Scouts!

Full marks to both dotcom and Beehive.

Thank you brackett for your woggle anecdote, but, before you plunge into further detail on that, perhaps we may have a little more detail on Chinese body armour?

What I get no marks!?!?!?!

I am shocked. It says clearly on the Scout website and the nice glossy map they produce that there are no Chinese mainland boy scouts. Indeed I have been on many international camps and never heard of them (then again, I have never heard of the Iraqi Boy Scouts but apparently they exist).
Are you sure they were Baden-Powell-style Boy Scouts and not some Commie hybrid?

Very well, you will get your Paper information.

Well we hung out with Boy Scouts from the New Teritory, which was a part of China before 1997. You are probably right.

What does it say about Hong Kong.

In the meantime...

Clothes moths belong to the genus Tinea (Tineidae).

The word 'tinea' is Latin for 'a gnawing worm' hence 'moth' (moths come from caterpillars of course);also a bookworm; a wood-worm; a silkworm; or, believe it or not, a worm in a beehive.

It also means any kind of worm found in a human body, hence the commoner meaning in English today of Tinea which refers both to Athlete's Foot and to Tinea Cruris (more colloquially known as 'Jock Itch').

Nothing at all about Hong Kong.
(edited to clarify "Nothing")
Let us never speak of worms in a beehive again.
