Merit Badges for Nerds

Remember when you were in Boy/Girl Scouts and you got Merit Badges for completing some requirements?  Why shouldn't we get that now? The crap I do as a Geeky Parent is hard, I want some recognition, dammit!

The Homonyms badge. Oh, I see what you did there.
The guys over at Nerd Merit Badges think that we should get that recognition. They are doing their part to recognize the talent and accomplishments of nerds everywhere.   Right now they feature different eight different badges that you can purchase* upon completing the requirements.  They even sell a sash for your laptop!!!  You can earn badges for attaining the elusive empty e-mail inbox, or for providing tech-support to your family members (make your parents/kids/Aunt Sally buy that one for you).

 They are super cool and I want them all.

*One of the badges can only be earned by participating in a weight loss challenge on their sister site Loseitloseit.com.  This site also looks awesome, and I am thinking about giving it a go.
