l also enjoy hiding the Fibonacci Sequence in things, just to see who notices.
On my 27'th birthday I got a "Happy Birthday" message with Fibonacci exclamation points. I was most pleased.
At the end of the day, there are two things to strive for, and they wont be easy.
The first is variety of tools and workspaces. It needs to be a place where people come to tinker and to get some idea out of their heads and into reality. So it needs to offer access to whatever it is that the actual local users are wanting to use. If they want metalworking, get a welder and a few milling machines. If they want woodworking, get some drill presses and chop saws. But dont invest it the cutting edge of everything up front. I recommend some kind of request system, so it can organically grow in the directions the users want. If they see the space is responsive to what they feel they are lacking, it will also go a long way to keeping them coming back, even if they dont have every little thing at first. This will be a balancing game between responsive acquisition and responsible budgeting. Fundraising drives can help, just like a high school that needs a new scoreboard, etc.
The second is casual Accessibility. Dont make them spend a hundred bucks and take a class that won't be held again for two weeks, just so they can drill a single hole. This is another balancing act between responsible safety and easy access, and the first solution is staff.
It also really helps to have a large scrap pile for free (or free-ish) materials.

From the Ruling:
On the day of his arrest, the defendant was interviewed by law enforcement officials after having
been advised of the Miranda rights. In response to questioning, he said that he had more than one
computer in his home. The defendant also informed the officials that "[e]verything is encrypted
and no one is going to get to it." In order to decrypt the information, he would have to "start the
program." The defendant said that he used encryption for privacy purposes, and that when law
enforcement officials asked him about the type of encryption used, they essentially were asking for
the defendant's help in putting him in jail. The defendant reiterated that he was able to decrypt
the computers, but he refused to divulge any further information that would enable a forensic
If it had been the exact same situation, just a combination lock on on physical file cabinet in his office, once a proper court subpena was issued Law Enforcement might have asked for the combination as a courtesy but would have been perfectly within their rights to simply cut the thing open. And if they found evidence of some unrelated crime, that is long been fair game just like a drug bust during a traffic stop.
Maybe it's different by State, I dont know
Wow, bullying, in the boy scouts? I'm utterly shocked. Who would have though an organization full of teenage asshole testosterone pumps would be susceptible to bullying?
Just because the national management is regrettably old-fashioned and very very conservative does not mean the youth themselves are assholes. At that age they more often actually live up to the public Ideals.
