This content is certified!
I was looking for a rights free 'Certified' image that I could stick here from Google Advanced Image Search and strangely enough I couldn't find one.
I am not making this up.
I had to make up a 'CERTIFIED!' image to use above.
All certified stamps like these ones below I am not allowed to use.
So please help me God for I have sinned!
Strange how much value people put on an ugly stamp like the ones above.
I could be Google Certified, Microsoft Certified, JC 1002 Certified, Common Core Certified, ETS Certified, Pearson Certified...
Except I am not. I am just me.
So I have no right to use the badges.
BOOOOOO (he weeps)
Apparently this is the desired outcome of education.
We are working really, really hard for an official stamp.
I just copied my stamps off the net and I have certified my blog post as @sensor63 genuine.
This is just like many Chinese students do when they come to study in France.
They go to Paris and spend 3000 dollars to get a fake stamp.
When they go home to their parents, they go back with a fake university degree.
The parents are proud.
Before they come to France they pay to a language testing company to get a fake certificate which attests to their proficiency in French.
I could go on a long time about certified content
I already have...
Mind the gap
Oh and probably some others...
I can't really be bothered now to look.
