Completing a badge at an average of every 3 weeks for 8 years straight, do you feel like you really earned the badges, or just attained them? And having attained them, do you think you've retained the skills you learnt from the badges you earned 8 years ago?

I ask as a (former) UK scout leader, and nothing frustrated me more than seeing kids sheep dipped through as many badges as possible- the kids may have learnt something in September, but come Summer Camp the following July, you'd have to reteach them.

People with an extreme dedication to one particular activity or interest often lack the social skills to work effectively alongside people with a different interest to themselves- with this in mind, how is your life outside of scouting?
