For members who can utter the phrase “It’s not rocket science” with authority. (DG)

For those who study medical and/or microbiological issues related to things carried rectally. (LL)
We figured that if you actually know what those three words together mean, then you deserve a badge (Yes, we know it’s a normal distribution). Statistics rock! (NG)

One of our self explanatory badges. (EM)
It could get ugly when two or more of these recipients get together.
