Why 119 Merit Badges?

Recommended Posts

Why are there 119 Merit Badges? At the least, I would expect it to be an even multiple of 5 (for palms) above the Eagle requireds. But then there are 20 (not 19) Webelos pins.


I can see not wanting it to stretch too high, but why did they pick the number they have?
