Dave Stopera received a Hurricane Irene Award on Aug 26 for their post about Hurricane Irene. They would be here to accept this Award in person, but they're staked out at their local Walmart right now, stockpiling canned goods and toilet paper and, like, maybe a shotgun or two. There may be looting!
Dave Stopera has received a Shark Week Award on Aug 03 because they made a post about sharks. During Shark Week! So, not just a post about sharks - which is already pretty much the best kind of post - but a topical post about sharks. Hell yes. Sharks bring out the best in people.
Dave Stopera received an Occupy Wall Street badge on Oct 28 for their post about Occupy Wall Street. Who could ever have imagined that there would be such a strong backlash against the corporate fat cats who have been cheating us and stealing all our money? Crazy stuff.
Dave Stopera received an Olympics Badge on Jul 27 because they posted something about the Olympics! An Olympics Badge is a lot like an Olympic medal, except without any of the prestige, so hooray for Dave Stopera!
