Have you all bee n following the 2014 World Cup? Did you hear about the Blue Samurai and their Super Awesome behavior after Japan lost it’s match? In summary the Japanese fans called Blue Samurai bring blue plastic bags to the soccer matches. The bags can be used as ponchos during the game, super smart. The bags are blue and can be waved as flags for their team, super loyal. The bags can be used to pick up garbage after the game, Super Awesome! The goal like any good scouts is to leave the stadium cleaner than they found it. For this most Super Awesome behavior we are awarding the Blue Samurai the Dirty Dozen Badge.
The best part of Superawesome World for me is when we have a badge alert for the creation of a new badge. Today, I went on a walk but instead of indiscriminately picking up garbage, I focused on cigarette butts. In total, I picked up almost 60 butts or the equivalent of 3 packs of cigarettes. My walk was a real Butt Kicker!
I used to smoke cigarettes years ago (almost a pack a day) and while I usually didn’t flick my butt, I did at times so I am not sure that this is so superawesome for me as it would be for a never smoked never flicked a butt person since they would have never flicked a butt, but I have. Either way it made me feel superawsome on a rather blah day. For this reason I think that any time anyone picks up 20 or more cigarette butts from the ground, they deserve to earn the Butt Kicker badge.
The other bonus, in addition to earning a superawesome badge, is that in addition to going on a good walk I did nearly 60 squats, one with every cigarette butt! Needless to say I had some serious hand washing to do when I was done. That’s ok though since all of the exercise I got made me work up a little sweat on this fine spring day.
As always my plea to you is that if you like this and want to spread superawesome and make Superawesome World more superawesome, please share this post and follow the site. Also if you have a relevant comment please make sure to leave it.

The first of many super-awesome badges has been identified and it is the “Amazing Grace” badge.
“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found…”
This badge is earned by finding something of value that requires effort to return but could be easily kept. This could be something like cool sunglasses, money, or in my case a handful of gift cards. Badge design will come soon.
