  1. Two Gals Get In the Holiday Spirit, Craft Shots That Taste Like Girl Scout Cookies

    Can "Thin Mint" be my signature drink?

    Entertaining guests like a mature adult can be rewarding, but grown-up parties are often sadly bereft of drizzled chocolate or coconut shavings. But here's a tutorial that shows you how to get your amateur mixologist on and combine the best of both possible worlds (alcohol + dessert)! And remember: should your sweet creations make you crave actual non-liquid cookies, you can now do your Girl Scout shopping online. Truly we live in a magical time.

  2. Not a Drill: Girl Scouts of America Adds Online Cookie Sales

    They will need you to enable cookies.

    In a turn of events much awaited by freelancers, folks who work in offices full of young people, and everyone who's terrified of talking to small girls, Girl Scout troops now have the option of organizing their semi-annual cookie sales through online shopping.

  3. Carnegie Science Center Makes Less-Than-Optimal Programming Choice For Girl Scouts

    Hey, at least it wasn't cookie making, right?

    I have immense respect for the Carnegie Science Center. The Institution does a lot of admirable work, and I can only imagine the intricate decision process involved in coordinating its programs. But big organizations are bound to make mistakes sometimes, right?

  7. Girl Scout Is Entrepreneurial Genius, Sells Cookies Outside a Cannabis Clinic

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Watch out, world. Danielle Lei, future CEO, coming through. The only bad part about this story is that she's 13 years old, which, if Wikipedia serves me right, would make her a Cadette. The universe doesn't want me to be able to use a "pot Brownie" headline for this post.

  9. Girl Scouts Introduce Game Design Merit Badge, One Up Boy Scouts With Software Requirement


    Our ultimate goal is to create a STEM-aligned video game badge for the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Creating this badge will get young girls excited in technology and science and let them know that they, too, can have a career in the video game industry. -- Amy Allison, vice president at Women in Games International. The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and Women in Games International are teaming up to develop requirements for a game developer badge for scouts. The Boy Scouts introduced their badge earlier this year, but the Girl Scouts version seeks to specifically focus on video game development rather than a more general focus on games of all kinds. (via Ars Technica, image is of the Boy Scouts' Game Design merit badge.)

  10. Girl Scout Cookie Caper Case Closed, Culprit Cornered

    om nom nom

    It's a fact of life that some of us have, at some point in time, contemplated sneaking a Girl Scout Cookie away from the warm embrace of some one we know. Maybe a sibling. Maybe a friend. Just so long as they had more than they could conceivably eat in one sitting and we had none. But I can safely say that the majority of us have never contemplated stealing 450 cases of Girl Scout Cookies directly from a GSA warehouse. But I can only say "the majority" and not "all" because somebody totally did that in South Carolina last week.
