shrinkage received a Spell Chek badge on Jun 08 for they're proofreading acumen. Not that we need a proofreader around hear, for the most part - but it never hurts to check over you're work before you put it on the Internet!
shrinkage received a "Fact Checker" badge on May 17 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?!
shrinkage received a cookie on Mar 14 for being very clever. And unlike in some places, when someone says something clever on BuzzFeed and we say, "Have a cookie," we actually mean it! Except we don't, because this is a virtual cookie and what the hell are you going to do with a virtual cookie?
