Foursquare Badges Hold No Material Value…

Yet we stan for them. I know I do. It’s crazy. I joined Foursquare about a month ago and it’s to the point where I’ve almost checked in to a place I wasn’t even at just so I can get that much closer to a badge. Note the word “almost.” I’m no cheater folks. I get my badges fair and square or should I say four and square? [Insert drum rimshot sound here]

And at the end of the day it’s like what the hell am I gonna do with a Foursquare badge? Frame it? No. Sell it for cash? Nope. Eat it? Highly unlikely. So what exactly is behind the infatuation? I'm trying to figure it out myself and I have yet to come to a conclusion. Can someone help a fellow Foursquare user out?
