Other buttons

| No Comments

As if more evidence were needed that Jed is a packrat, I have a lot of buttons and pins. Not even counting all the badges from conventions attended over the past 25 years, here's some of what was in my button-bag. Note that several of these were gifts from other people; views expressed on buttons are not necessarily the views of management.

  • If the government doesn't trust the people, why doesn't it dissolve them and elect a new people?
  • Arms are for Embracing
  • Wearing buttons is not enough
  • Another straight for gay rights
  • Possessor of a mind not merely twisted but actually sprained
  • If voting made a difference it would be illegal
  • Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth
  • Mutants for Nuclear Power [with a one-eyed smiley face] [I have two of these]
  • question authority
  • Wandering Punster
  • Incorrigible punster; do not incorrige
  • Don't build more nukes until we use the ones we have.
  • Give me that REAL old time religion: [and then around the rim of the button] Isis Astarte Diana Hecate Demeter Kali Danu Inanna
  • Don't call me "girl" [I have two of these, too. Never had the nerve to wear one; figured it wouldn't go over well. Maybe I'll bring 'em to WisCon next year.]
  • Anarchy: it's not the law, it's just a good idea
  • Ask Dr. Science! [I have two of these, too.]
  • Don't presume I'm straight [I had wanted to get another one that said "Don't presume I'm gay" and wear them both next to each other]
  • American Non Sequitor [sic] Society: We don't make sense, but we do like pizza
  • [a cow with a thought balloon above it that says "no nukes"]

  • [a stick figure pushing another stick figure in a wheelchair across the Golden Gate Bridge—identifier for Disabled Access gofering staff at ConFrancisco, WorldCon '93]
  • [assorted math-contest award pins]
  • [a cool six-legged spider-like beastie, maybe 2" long, with body and head made of amber, purchased at a Russian beriozhka—the Soviet tourist stores]
  • [a bunch of Soviet-era pins commemorating various things, including two different five-pin sets commemorating the Soviet space program: Luna-3, Luna-9, Luna-16, Sputnik, Lunokhod, Venera-5, Mars-1, Molniya-1, Proton, Kosmos, etc.]
  • Chicon V 1991 Gopher [I used to do a lot of volunteering at cons; it was fun, and made them affordable since I usually got my membership refunded]
  • Member: Immoral Minority
