Relevant Merit Badges for Middle-Aged People

The Boy Scouts of America organization is changing its name to Scouting America, as an attempt at rebranding and because they have 176,000 girls in their ranks. They will still have merit badges for certain achievements, as do the Girl Scouts. But why should these badges be limited to young folks? We learn and change throughout our lives. And there are certain accomplishments that mark mark achievement of middle age. The badge above is called the Ceramics Class at the Local Community College Badge. You receive that when you realize that you were too busy building a career and raising kids for the past twenty years and now you don’t have any hobbies, and that has to be fixed quickly.

Another is particularly relevant due to a popular post we had not too long ago. The Boombox Badge is mark your accomplishment of admitting that “you don’t care about new music and start listening only to music that was awesome when you were fifteen.” Oh sure, you can argue about that all day, but then you won’t get the badge. See nine of these badges for the achievements of middle age at McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.  -via Nag on the Lake
