The “non-explainer” badge (LEVEL I)


Where the recipient can no longer explain what they do to their parents (M).


  1. ArrEff

    It’s easier to tell my parents that I work for the CIA. I wish I could tell them what I do, but it’s against the law.

  2. Catherine

    I didn’t spend all that money and take out all those loans for my folks to “get it”.

  3. Jaciel

    And both my parents made it through med school.

  4. couples badges? my parents think I cured some form of HIV infection and my wife’s mom thinks she built the space shuttle booster rockets

  5. Is being a teenage computer geek enough?
    My parents are always amazed about how fast I fix stuff.

  6. Sarah K

    I’m only in 8th grade and my parents already have no idea what I’m talking about when I try to get them to help me with my homework. :)

  7. Cory

    Oh, this badge was earned long ago, when I started doing molecular biology… in their defense, my parents are both blue-collar workers, so this might not be much of an achievement

  8. Ben

    My dad’s a programmer, which made this one a little hard to get, but I managed to lose him when I started talking about topology.

  9. That post was awesome. I am going to check back later. Keep updating your blog!!! ^.^b

  10. Cyn

    Seeing as my parents think INERTIA is a medication, Newton is a fig cookie, and exothermic reactions have to do with ghostbusters, they have no idea what I do.
