It is called SkeetOverflowException. –  Octavian Damiean Apr 13 '11 at 12:56
    
Maybe we need a new SkeetOverflow badge, awarded when your rep is higher than then number of badges JS has got, and removed if you fall behind to keep the pressure up... –  mikel Apr 13 '11 at 15:52

There is paging for badges in the badges view of specific user, e.g.:
http://stackoverflow.com/users/22656/jon-skeet?tab=activity#apage_1-afilter_badges

This also show when he earned each badge. :)

Several badges every day! If he didn't log for a few days, his whole screen must be taken up with new badge notifications. –  mikel Apr 13 '11 at 15:39

@mikel if he "didn't log for a few days" it means the end of Stack Overflow as we know it... :-P –  Shadow Wizard Apr 13 '11 at 15:44

If you receive several badges at once there is only one notification bar - my one right now says "You've earned "Popular Question" and 3 other badges. See your profile." –  user147272 Apr 13 '11 at 23:37
    
"You've earned 'Nice Question' and 254 other badges. See your profile. Now! Do it finally!" :) –  Wladimir Palant Jul 4 '11 at 10:14
