5 pages almost done, just backgrounds left to do.

Found this site on Neatorama called The Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique:

"For the propagation of an ideal where science communicators can meet firstly, for drinks; secondly, for communicating; and ultimately, for networking."

What I especially like about this organisation is their system of awarding badges for diligence in promoting scientific literacy. Badges like the Destroyer of Quackery badge "in which the recipient never ever backs down from an argument that pits sound science over quackery". Or the MacGyver badge "in which the recipient has demonstrated that his/her science communciation prowess was handy in simplifying a potentially challenging scenario."

But my favourite:

The "Dodger of Monkey Shit" badge. Love it.
