So, I have earned forty bits! And I'm the first one to post in the BB40 boast thread!

*Lies down on the pristine white snow and makes a BB40 angel*

And yet.... I swear I have seen other BB40 badges on the forum.....




Anyway these went into the BB20:

1) Lash something 10' to a vehicle without dying
2) Sweep the Leg
3) Spring Cleaning
4) Make a firestarter from an oily dish
5)  Pee on a Plant
6) Make tea from plants you found laying around
7) First Aid for your First Aid Kit
8) Wash Dishes by hand, then wash your hand
9) Make an egg slide around in a cast iron skillet
10) Stir Fry!
11) Pollinator gatorade station
12) Not the sharpest knife in the drawer
13) Eat a bunch of plants, but not if you grew them
14) Zip it, pal!
15) Dry out your peppermint
16) Turn a branch into a smaller branch
17) Bake a loaf of bread, and also a backup loaf of bread
18) Make sand soup.  Oh, sorry, that's for a sand badge in soup.
19) Cook rice with fuzzy logic
20) Make a natural medicine journal to help you recover from all the BBs

Please allow me to introduce:

21) chop down a bunch of plants and scoot them over a few feet

22) ...now scoot them over another foot and dump kitchen scraps in, then scoot them back

23) deflate a tool that has mushroomed

24) make oregano shots

25) make your skin tingle with diced ginger

26) dice onions with a sharpened axe

27) ...or a hatchet, but it's not as impressive cause you just used an axe

28) burn wood, but with meticulous attention to detail

29) clean the inside of your oven with fridge deodorizer

30) now that the inside is clean, the outside is jealous

31) rags to riches

32) open the freezer, only this time instead of eating popsicles, clean it up

33) Do the popsicle thing again but with your fridge this time

34) now that you've swept, cleaned the oven, cleaned the fridge, and organized the counter, clean the remaining two square feet

35) Make a laundry line that's as tight as a drum until you hang a damp washcloth on it and it sags

36) now that you have a clothesline, dry out some clover

37) atone for all the messes you've made in the shop

38) make rice again but in a pot this time

39) make an interdimensional floating  bed (oh wait, that says *simple* bed from dimensional lumber. drat)

40) do the safety dance!

BB60 or bust










Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

Congratulations on BB40!!! If you keep going like this, I'll have to pick up my own pace
