Morning Roundup: Can Rockets Earn Merit Badges in Rocketeering? Or Is That Cheating?

DIY is a new educational program that encourages kids to learn new skills on their own. And not just regular skills like building fires or tying knots, or proficiency in archery or bugling—these merit badges, designed by Isaiah Saxon, celebrate things like engineering darkness, creative use of tape, and being a Yeti. But the best, obviously, is the merit badge you get for being a Rocketeer. This is even better than becoming an Eternal Scout. [via Boingboing!]

Morning Roundup brings you a report from the sequel to The LEGO Movie, a ranking of the cinematic oeuvre of one Mr. Tim Burton, and wacky religious art from R. Crumb!
