Nerd Merit Badges


Printer Hero
“How does one earn this Nerd Merit Badge for being a ‘Printer Hero?’ It may appear that one must slay the Savage Printer, but apparently that sword is a reference to Arthurian legend. You don’t earn this badge by fixing printers and copiers. You earn this badge by being willing to try.”

Family Tech Support
“Requirements: You provide hardware, software, and telephone support for family computers and electronics—voluntarily or involuntarily.”

Reno Dakota & Pantone 292

via a capital idea

“. . . A friend has recently rediscovered the Magnetic Fields, a favorite band of mine. We had a fun discussion of the song Reno Dakota, which includes the lyrics:

Reno Dakota there’s not an iota
Of kindness in you
You know you enthrall me
And yet you don’t call me
It’s making me blue
Pantone 292
