There are other merit badges, too, like the Homonyms merit badge for correctly spelling words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings, and multiple badges representing Foursquare success. There's even a laptop sash made for displaying your successes proudly! I think these are cute, but what do you think?
Want to declare your geekery the way you did as a kid (OK, so I was never a Girl Scout, but I was no stranger to cool patches)? These Nerd Merit Badges, $4 a piece, celebrate either your accomplishment in clearing your email inbox (which always brings me great relief) or being an open source hero.
And you can award yourself at any time; no one will strip you of your fine, fine achievements.
