If you don't, it is "Be ready."

Here is the tale of a photographer who was ready when his photos went viral in a really big way:

Be Prepared.

That's the motto of the Boy Scouts.

"Be prepared for what?" someone once asked Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting,

"Why, for any old thing." said Baden-Powell.



It certainly applies here.

Indeed. That's how I remember the motto.

Oh where is Tom Lehrer now when we really need him?   Sad

Apparently alive and well on youTube.

As a mathematics student at about his time, it sure brings back memories.

Lehrer is alive and well (hopefully) in Santa Cruz. He was last seen teaching mathematics at U.C Santa Cruz and spends Hanukkah in Santa Monica and Shavu'ot in Old St. Louis.

I first thought you were incorrect but I was confusing the motto with the oath! A long time ago...
Strangely I was playing some Tom Lehrer the other day. His songs can still be applied to our modern society!! Wake up people!

I actually took a course from him when I was at UC Santa Cruz in 2000. I am glad to hear he is still there.
