Chris Menning received a "Should Be Viral" badge on Sep 15 because they made a post that probably should be viral. If, say, the world were a just and equitable place. Which, it's not - we all know that. Now I'm sad.
Chris Menning received a "Mega List" badge on Sep 15 because they made a post with more than 100 entries. That's more than 3 times as many items in a list as there are Amendments to the Constitution. Plus, this list is waaaaaaaaay more interesting than that snorefest. Check it out:
Chris Menning received a "Fact Checker" badge on Sep 15 because they verified or disputed a fact and backed up their claim with some kind of written or visual proof. If we didn't have someone to check the facts, none of the facts would get checked - and then where would we be?!
Chris Menning received a "Collection" badge on Sep 15 because they posted something that people are adding to. That's harder than it sounds - usually people are just like, "meh," (which, and I get that we're now waaaaaaay off topic, is a really annoying thing to say under almost any circumstances).
