For fun:

Which of these Science Scout Badges do you deserve?

Obviously, define "science" however necessary to earn you a badge.

What badges would you propose for common marks of respect in your field?

Oooh, I want the Foucault badge, too. I'm working on the same one for Butler, too. *nodnod*

I think the body weight in books one needs to be tiered, though. 1/10, 1/4, 1/3... yeah.

I need a "My research topic is so long it won't fit on twitter" badge. And maybe a "my research cannot be talked about in polite company" badge as well.

I also kind of feel there should be one for "Wrangles Freshman Writing" in there. *considers* Or "Expert Grading Skills." *ponders* And maybe one for "Ability to Grade Freshman Writing Without Turning to Booze."

Bless their little freshman hearts, anyway.

Badges I've earned: the "cloner" badge, the "somewhat confused as to what scientific field I actually belong to" badge, the "statistical linear regression" badge, the "works with very small and potentially dangerous organisms" badge, the "I’ve eaten what I study" badge, the "non-explainer" badge (LEVEL I), and the "I have written a computer program that I regularly use" badge. Ahaha.

The "I’ve done science with no conceivable practical application" badge also probably applies to me, but for the sake of grant applications, I pretend it doesn't.
