Even if not, I've decided to crash the party anyway! Mwah ha ha!
Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique
(as seen over at Adventures of Ethics and Science and Thus Spake Zuska)
Here are the badges that I've earned:
Talking Science. Self-explanatory.
MacGyver. Hey, if nothing else, I should get this for jury-rigging my car's hood closed for several years after a rather unfortunate run-in with a pickup truck.
I Blog About Science. Again, self-explanatory.
Arts and Crafts. For putting together an especially memorable and geeky Halloween costume one year. Plus, some poetry.
I'm Pretty Confident Around an Open Flame. I was the student who managed to set her experiment on fire every week in lab. As a result, I can now extinguish many different types of fires with ease. So I think I've earned this badge on that basis alone.
Destroyer of Quackery. At least where computer technology is concerned.
My Degree Inadvertently Makes Me Competent in Fixing Household Appliances. Or at least household electronics. (Although I do have a soldering iron and I'm not afraid to use it!)
Will Gladly Kick Sexual Harrasser's Ass. Yep, been there and done that.
Has Frozen Stuff Just to See What Happens, Level 1. Hey, who hasn't?
I Bet I Know More Computer Languages Than You, and I'm Not Afraid to Talk About It. Well, not all of you, but most of you, I'm betting.
I Know What a Tadpole Is. Self-explanatory, I hope.
Experienced with Electrical Shock, Levels 1-3. Remember the comment above about setting the lab on fire every week? Yeah, I didn't have any better luck around the electronics, either...
Fellow scientists, which badges have you earned?
