In typical late capitalism fashion, these are a lot easier to complete than the real BSA ones. The 1% can just open up their checkbook and earn them all, while my poor kid has been toiling away at making a family budget for the last 6 months in order to earn Personal Management. Disappointed.

Great badges but I have really only come to point out in a curmudgeonly fashion that ‘adult’ IS NOT A FUCKING VERB! Not even if used by people at UC Berkeley

I guess there is no badge for ‘Verbed no nouns today’ because its mere existence would mean nobody could ever claim they’d qualified for it.
