Look! They have one that was definitely designed for me.
The “active volcano is my research locale” badge.More exotic than the usual laboratory bench. (R)
This one's pretty self explanatory...
And some others...
Zoning out just means that they're not conscious enough to run away, so you've been successful in capturing their attention.
The “I blog about science” badge. In which the recipient maintains a blog where at least a quarter of the material is about science. Suffice to say, this does not include scientology.
Snarking about bad science counts as science, right?
What, like you've never used the big sledgehammer on a can of Natty Lite just to see what would happen?
The “I may look like a scientist but I’m actually also a ninja” badge. Lethal when in combination with the “destroyer of quackery” badge. (AC)

In which the recipient has worked with acids. (L)

This is practically a job requirement for geologists, right?
