    You know Scott, the H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio team really did think of every scenario. I mean, what are the chances of this ever happening?

    Well Dave, thanks for asking. We haven't had a chance to see all the badges yet, but that's a great idea. Let's see if the team at H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio picked up on that one for us..."

    Ever have trouble using the proper pronoun to describe someone? He, she, they, ze, sie? Or maybe you're having trouble describing yourself? With gender neutrality becoming more widely excepted in today's society, the H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio team feels that labels are no longer important.

    Of course, it would be much better if I knew how to crop an image to a circle...
    I think I'd need to upgrade to a solid state computer to do that from my vacuum tube model, though.

    If we get enough of these together, we can probably do away with language altogether, and be just like FB.

    Not a cable believer? Is it your lifelong goal to make sure everyone knows it?

    Ever been banned? Ever been banned for something you did so long ago that you can't even remember what it was that you did? Well, the H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio doesn't agree with that practice, but still they have to accommodate the PAF.

    Just picked up a new set of RTi speakers and discovered 20 minutes later that you hate listening to music now?

    Hey Scott, do you ever lay in bed at night and worry someone is going to anger the forum's Italian Polkie? And then wonder why that person mysteriously disappears from the forum? Well apparently the H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio had their concerns.

    Are you a happy-go-lucky kinda person? Cheerfully unconcerned about the future, never thinking of the consequences of your actions? Have you ever flown a white drone in the snow and then lost it? Have you ever shipped expensive audio equipment via UPS that resulted in damage, but you never bothered to pay the extra money for insurance? Have you ever bought a Porsche off of eBay without knowing anything about it?

    I had something slightly different in mind for this badge, FWIW:

    The H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio Team has had growing concerns about the old timers that frequent the forum. They are afraid spending too much time sitting at the computer could lead to bad physical health.

    Is that Karen Carpenter, or Sharon Osbourne?

    Jessica Walter, from "Play Misty for Me" Fame maybe?
