We DO NEED yer stinkin’ badges!

At least the ones created by Science Scouts, or the Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique for long. I absolutely love them and want to immediately pull out my junior girl scout sash and start stitching these on too.

The “I have an actual human skeleton in my office” badge:

The “I’m a scientist but people tell me I look like a celebrity” badge:

And of course, the “I could tell you about my research, but then I’d have to kill you” badge (a.k.a. Patent Badge):

Cool and creative!
