Shot through the heart and you’re to blame...

I recently learned I’ve been selected for an upcoming surprise athletic competition that will focus on outdoorsy skills. I grew up fairly poor and we didn’t do much beyond hiking and occasional archery and I’ve tried everything to get out of doing this but I must go ahead with the competition. I’m mostly looking for pointers and a crash-course in boy scout type lessons: how to make fire, how to find water (super important!), building tripwires to hunt small game, and methods for finding your way using natural signs rather than map and compass. Anything would really help!

Of two minds about social gathering

I've been thinking off and on about starting up a sort of social club/support group for men in my area, but I'm not sure how to organize it. Mostly I want it to be place where we can feel comfortable around each other: spend time one-on-one, not have to dress up, not feel like we have to hurry through interactions, etc. How do you formulate rules for that sort of thing? Beautiful unique snowflake details inside. [more inside]

Touch Football Play Rules?

I play a bit of football in the park with my friends, and it's not regulation NFL American Football or anything, but I'm curious if it's cool when going for a punt to start a game, a friend of mine likes to pull the ball at the last possible second. She says it's a big joke and my other friends laugh a bit too so maybe I'm just being too sensitive. Are there rules I can point her to showing this isn't allowed?
