and they have badges!

The "I've touched human internal organs with my own hands" badge. In which the recipient is "hopefully" doing something that is somehow related to human health.


The "works with very large and potentially dangerous organisms" badge.
In which recipient conducts hazardous research on very large creatures.

The "I may look like a scientist, but I'm actually also a pirate" badge. Drinks rum. Into pillaging and stuff. Soft spot for evolutionary biology.


And many more!
