No they aren't earned, in fact, a well respected member on here buys his train patches online to trade off on the road (and for himself of course).

Haha! I personally find men and green sashes VERY attractive.. ;)
Anyways, I don't have many patches, just one on the back of my hoodie (Jerry Garcia quite litelly has my back). But! I do both for hat pins, and it seems like I find/make most cool stuff after having dealt with bs of some sort. So each button is like an "achievement" haha.

I only really get attached to patches that have a significant meaning to me. One that I bought at a show traded for etc. I like having a story behind them it makes a good conversational piece. I've also been hooked on buying patches with the names of a town on them that you get a souvinir shops for places that I've spent a lot of time at or have special meaning to me.

In traveling contexts, in Portland OR i came across a 'trip city' (spoof off 'rip city' for those who were wondering) hat pin after a personal adventure resisting the pull of the psychedelic drug get-rich-quick scheme

moved to clothing section. please don't dump everything in general banter because you're too lazy to find a good place to put it.

This is a homemade patch that I have on my backpack:
IMGA01161.jpg

The image is of goats with guns.
The text "Turn Illness Into A Weapon' was the motto of the Socialist Patients Collective, (SPK), a left-anarchist group of liberated mental patients who agitated in Berlin in the 1970s, and, after state persecution, their remnants merged into the Red Army Faction.
The goats are because they were the unofficial mascots of a Mad Pride community I was part of.

Also I want to buy one of these for my jacket, support a band with a lot of sentimental value:

Some absolutely are earned. If you ask enough workers some will hand out vests/hats/etc with the company logos on them. These are precious. Most are simply ordered online by someone and traded.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
